Event Information for 2017

2017 U. S. 13 DRAGWAY PROGRAMS (revised 5/16)

 IHRA Summit Super Series & SBRA Bracket Finals – Race teams will have two chances this season to compete during the 2017 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 2017, the winners from the Team Bracket finals in Box, No Box and Jr Dragster eliminators will also have a shot at a World title.  Last year we have joined the Southern Bracket Racing Association. Racer who attend the vent were happy with their experience and asked us to renew for 2017. 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. This race will be held October 11 – 15, 2017.

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! (Only those racers who have not bought back in will be eligible for a Double Down Payout. If you buy back, you are eliminated from contention)

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! ARE YOU READY TO DOUBLE DOWN?
