Thunder Valley Dragways Named IHRA Midwest Division Track of the Year

Thunder Valley Dragways Named IHRA Midwest Division Track of the Year

Thunder Valley Dragways Named IHRA Midwest Division Track of the Year
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) member track Thunder Valley Dragways has been named the Midwest Division Track of the Year.
The Marion, S.D., track, owned by Glen Rapp, hosts an incredibly strong IHRA Summit SuperSeries program. It has been the home track to IHRA world champions in two of the last four years. 
 Thunder-Valley-Sign2
 
Thunder Valley’s Tom Gall won the 2017 IHRA Summit SuperSeries Top (Box) world title and Cory Heckenlible won the 2015 IHRA Summit SuperSeries Mod (No Box) world championship.
 
“If you could cut through the thick skin of Glen Rapp he’d undoubtedly bleed IHRA. The fact that after years of promoting the Summit SuperSeries, he’s still able to turn racers onto the greatest program in sportsman drag racing is a testament,” IHRA Division Director Jon O’Neal said. 
 
The track first opened in 1967 and is highlighted by the fact that it stays constantly upgraded yet retains its historic charm. There are over 100 permanent camping sites at the facility and it draws racers from across state lines on a regular basis.

Perth Motorplex Fire & Safety Crew Seminar

09/09/2019, Australia, Motorsport - Drag Racing, Australian Drag Racing, Article # 29472615

 

2019-2020_firesafety_header

2019-2020_firesafety_theorytestsThe 2019/2020 Emergency Response Safety Seminar was conducted on Sunday the 8th of September at Perth Motorplex. Our regular Fire & Safety Crew and some new recruits undertook the Annual extensive training seminar for Speedway, Drag Racing & Burnout events at the Perth Motorplex.

Perth Motorplex holds Safety in the highest regard so with this in mind, Objectives and Achievements obtained from Emergency Response Safety training were as follows;

  • To make aware of crew duties and responsibilities.
  • To ensure that crew possess the skill of Fire & Rescue and to perform with Competency.
  • To promote and secure health, safety and welfare of Crew.
  • To assist in securing a safe work environment.
  • To reduce, eliminate and control hazards to which the Crew are exposed at work.
  • To promote education awareness on matters relating to Fire & Rescue.

2019-2020_firesafety_james_rowlandThis year the seminar was expanded to include specific race vehicle safety systems by respected Nitro and Top Alcohol crew chief James Rowland.

James shared his knowledge and experience of the various safety devices being used in modern Drag Racing vehicles and also the various quick release mechanisms being implemented on the vehicles these days.

 

 

 

The Emergency Response team members conducted the ‘hands on’ practice using a variety of functions with several jaws of life and spreaders. The crew performed several scenarios of extracting smashed vehicles and all scenarios were carried out competently along with the correct use of the Robinson tool – known as the Hooligan tool and Glasscutter for cutting windscreens.

2019-2020_firesafety_jawsoflife

The Emergency Response Team members and Track Safety personnel conducted several fire simulations using state of the art training equipment, with several types of vehicle fire scenarios.

2019-2020_firesafety_firetraining

Perth Motorplex would like to thank all our attendees, Trainers and Team members for giving up their time with their dedication to safety. Special thank you to James Rowland for bringing the team up to speed on the latest safety equipment and sharing his extensive knowledge and experience in motorsport.

All members performed competently as they continue to lift the bar in Safety for the 2019-2020 Perth Motorplex season.
