Grand Prizes, New Class to Add Excitement at IHRA Summit World Finals

HOUSE SPRINGS, Missouri -- There's more great news with the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) Summit SuperSeries World Finals scheduled for Oct. 5-7 at Holly Springs Motorsports.

It's the second straight year the Mississippi track has hosted the World Finals, and this year features the introduction of a new Motorcycle class. IHRA member racers from across North America will continue to pursue championships in Top (Box), Mod (No Box), Sportsman and Junior Dragster in the most prestigious program in bracket racing.

Jared Ledford (Box), Grant Zimmerman (No Box), Larry Doty (Sportsman) and Aubrey Loy (Junior Dragster) won IHRA Summit SuperSeries World Championships in 2022. 

An exciting addition this year are grand prizes for each class. Champions will still win the big check from Summit Racing Equipment, IHRA Gold Card, World Champion Diamond Ring and the prestigious IHRA World Champion Ironman Trophy.

The Sportsman champion receives a flatbed car hauler from B&C Trailer Services. Longtime IHRA supporter Dart's Carts will offer a Yamaha fuel-injected golf cart to the Junior Dragster champion.

The Motorcycle champion gets a prize of either a basic swingarm or a $575 value towards the purchase of a higher-priced swingarm.

IHRA Summit SuperSeries World Champions aren't the only ones who are winners. All drivers receive $300 in tow money and have the opportunity to win more money by each round they advance.

A racer can qualify by either winning a Summit SuperSeries track championship at a participating IHRA member track or by winning an IHRA Summit Team Finals main event class and meeting the eligibility requirements. 

Stay tuned for exciting news about another way racers can qualify for the 2023 IHRA Summit SuperSeries World Finals.
