IHRA announces first-ever Summit Racing SuperSeries Junior Dragster World Championship!

 

jrdrag_colorOver the past 10 years the fastest growing and most lucrative grassroots drag racing program in the sport has been the International Hot Rod Association’s Summit Racing SuperSeries.

Designed as a championship program for bracket racers around the world, the Summit SuperSeries has crowned nearly two dozen champions and awarded over $1 million in cash and prizes since 2002 and now, through the continued partnership of Summit Racing Equipment, the IHRA is pleased to announce a brand new Summit SuperSeries program for Junior Dragster racers beginning with the 2012 racing season.

Nearly identical to the same program that has revolutionized grassroots drag racing, the Summit SuperSeries Junior Dragster World Championship will deliver the same incredible racing as its larger-car counterparts all on the biggest stage of them all at the IHRA World Finals at Memphis International Raceway.

 

 “The Summit Racing SuperSeries is a very successful sportsman program we have built with the IHRA; racers and track operators have really jumped on board with the series. We were excited to expand the Top and Mod classes to 16 car fields in 2011,” said Jim Greenleaf, Summit Racing’s Motorsports and Events Manager. “We discussed opportunities to grow the program and the addition of the Junior Dragster class is a natural fit. These racers are the future of our sport, as we have seen many former Junior drivers as part of the Top and Mod championships.

randi teedOn a cold and blustery evening, over 200 Skyview Drags racers and their families gathered together to celebrate the highly successful 2011 drag racing season. This year’s racing banquet was held on Saturday, January 14, 2012 at The McKinley in Endicott, NY. Doors opened at 6 PM and the first festivities began at 6:30 PM with a slide show commemorating Team Skyview and their third place finish at the IHRA Division 3 Bracket Finals. This was the track’s highest finish ever at the Bracket Finals held at Pittsburgh Raceway Park this past September. After dinner service was finished, the racers settled in for the award presentations.
John Hummel from Northeast Open Comp was on hand to present their index class awards. Third place went to Gary Pascucci from Endicott, NY. The Runner-Up award was presented to Dave East. And taking home the Northeast Open Comp Championship in its inaugural season was Kenneth Roberts from Ulster, PA. Roberts also races in the Street Money class and was a past track champion in that class. Roberts dedicated his 2011 racing season to his dear friend Keith Price from Vestal, NY who passed away unexpectedly in December 2011.
 
 Skyview Drags fielded its largest Junior Dragster class in the track’s history. In recognition of this, awards were given out to the Top 20 points contenders. Finishing in fifth place was Jared Baker from Newfield, NY. In fourth place was Kimberly Klein from Livingston Manor, NY. Finishing in third place was Haley Teed from Friendsville, PA. The Runner-Up award was presented to Ron Klein Jr. from Livingston Manor, NY. The 2011 Junior Dragster Track Champion was Randi Teed from Friendsville, PA. Miss Teed was the 2010 Junior Dragster Rookie of the Year. She also represented Team Skyview at the 2011 Bracket Finals in the IHRA Division 3 Junior Dragster Race of Champions.
