The tickets will be distributed however the tracks decide. One hundred percent of the proceeds go to those tracks. The money can put into the racers’ points fund or a special event, or be used to help with maintenance, upgrades and other operating expenses. It’s up to the track to be used however is needed.
This is in conjunction with LJ1 Oil Products picking up all the sanctioning fees for 2024. It’s a no-brainer for drag strips to race with the IHRA in 2024 and beyond.
The grand prize winner will take home an incredible new vehicle which features the XLT Sport Package, a 10-speed automatic transmission, a towing package and a lot of nice amenities. Winners will be announced at the 2024 IHRA Summit SuperSeries World Finals.
“When we took over ownership of the IHRA, we promised a strong commitment to the grassroots, Sportsman racers and our tracks,” IHRA Owner & CEO Larry Jeffers said. “You’ve seen through our actions how we’d worked to give more value to the racers and tracks than ever before.”
All entries must be turned in by October 1, 2024.
Morrow Brothers Ford has been a longtime supporter of auto racing. They sponsor the MOWA Sprint Car Series and the dealership’s general manager, John Wellenkamp, is a longtime drag racer who pilots a 1985 Ford Mustang. They’re excited to partner with IHRA on this new venture.
“We’re ecstatic to give support to IHRA, the tracks and the drag racers,” Wellenkamp said. “It’s an extreme honor to be given this opportunity and to see the tracks benefit from it.”
The IHRA offers the best programs for grassroots, Sportsman racers like the IHRA Summit SuperSeries, the most prestigious national championship in bracket racing with over $300,000 in payouts and prizes. The IHRA Sportsman Spectacular presented by Moser Engineering and FuelTech has proven to be extremely popular and the IHRA Hot Rod Classic is set to its debut in 2024 bringing back the exciting class racing of the past.
Since the new IHRA ownership took over, there has been a huge emphasis on promoting the tracks and their racers. More great news concerning the IHRA racers, programs and tracks will be coming soon on the IHRA’s website and social media pages.
