2016 U. S. 13 DRAGWAY NEW PROGRAMS
IHRA Summit Super Series & SBRA Bracket Finals – Race teams will have two chances this season to compete during the 2016 bracket program. The IHRA Summit Super Series is back again with 43 & 2 alternate team members will race for the Summit Super Series. This year, once again our Champions in the Box, No Box and Jr Dragster categories will be able to run for a World Championship. The new twist, they automatically advance to Memphis. Also, new in 2016, the winners from the Team Bracket finals in Box, No Box and Jr Dragster eliminators will also have a shot at a World title. This year we have joined the Southern Bracket Racing Association. Racers will have the option to join the SBRA point’s series. The South Bracket Racing Association is an invitation only event. Seven tracks from the Mid-Atlantic region will descend on Mason Dixon Dragway for a chance at taking $68,000 in prize money. More information will be forth coming on all the details for this series at our season opener March 6.
DOUBLE DOWN RACE
TOP ET, MOD ET, PRO BIKE and STREET categories will have a chance to “Double” up this season. Racers can purchase a “Double Down Card” in the tower before the beginning of 1st round of eliminations on their designated DOUBLE DOWN DAY. This card represents a commitment between the Track and Racers who purchase a chance to DOUBLE their winnings. How it works?
A racer purchases the Double Down card (Same cost as entry). The racer who goes the farthest that day will receive DOUBLE the pay!
Example: Top ET Racer purchases Double Down card and reaches the finals, (TOP ET 33-48 cars) Winner portion is $1,000, that racer receives $2,000. Let’s say the racer in the Double Down pot only makes it to semi- finalist, payout (Super 33-48) semi’s $150 it would double to $300. Take MOD ET, racer win (33-48 Car) pays $700 to win, with a Double Down card now pays $1400!
In the case of two racers or more reaching a certain round holding Double Down cards, they all receive Double the payout! ARE YOU READY TO DOUBLE DOWN?
THE LIST RETURNS FOR 2016 – Last year, the 302 NATION or better known as the LIST took center stage. These high powered factory appearing Hot Rods run a heads up, no time, first to finish type of grudge action. Only 10 members who are fast enough will make the List. New comers will have two chances per month this year to take their shot at the Top 10. Another exciting part of the List is, CASH DAYS/OFF THE TRAILER competition, in 2016 we have 1 Cash Day per month scheduled. This is where we have all current List member as well as drivers who have tried out to make the List. By drawing from a deck of cards, this will determine how the pairings will fall out and will race to the end on the ladder. It’s a winner take all battle for ALL THE CASH!
