IHRA Division 4 racers prepare for exciting season with stops in Dallas, Baton Rouge, San Antonio and Memphis on Summit Pro-Am Tour
NORWALK, OH – The International Hot Rod Association announced today the official schedule for the Division 4 Summit Racing Equipment Pro-Am Tour presented by AMSOIL that will include four stops at tracks in Texas, Louisiana and Tennessee. Those stops include Dallas Raceway, State Capitol Raceway, San Antonio Raceway and Memphis International Raceway.
All events will feature a double race weekend with full races on Saturday and Sunday. Racers that finish within the top three in their divisional points will earn an automatic bid to the 2014 Summit Racing Equipment Tournament of Champions at Memphis International Raceway in October.
“The 2013 season was an awesome year for Division 4. We have a strong group of racers in the division and it shows from the number of world champions and top 10 finishers at the World Finals last year,” said Frank Kohutek, IHRA Division 4 Director. “I am really looking forward to 2014 to see who steps up and brings their ‘A’ game. We have a great schedule and another exciting year ahead."
Kicking off the Division 4 Summit Racing Equipment Pro-Am Tour presented by AMSOIL season is Dallas Raceway the weekend of March 14-16. The universally acclaimed track known throughout the drag racing community as the ‘concrete palace” will once again open its doors for two days of sportsman drag racing in the always tough Renegades Division.
State Capitol Raceway in Baton Rouge, Louisiana will host the second stop on the Division 4 schedule the weekend of April 4-6. Located in the heart of Cajun Country, many of the IHRA’s top competitors call Louisiana home and will be looking for another great race weekend in their backyard.
The always popular San Antonio Raceway will host the third stop on the Renegades season tour the weekend of May 30-June 1 in a standalone Summit Pro-Am event. Separate from the Nitro Jam Drag Racing Series stop at SAR in April, the late May Pro-Am will give racers their own weekend of racing separate from the showdown earlier in the year.
Wrapping up the Division 4 schedule will be Memphis International Raceway the weekend of June 13-15. A precursor to the Summit World Finals held at the same facility in October, the Wild Card weekend at Memphis International Raceway brings out the best racers in all divisions as racers can claim valuable Pro-Am points regardless of home division while getting a hit at the track where they will compete for championships later in the year.
