Please see the attached proposed agenda for the Oval Track Meeting on November 7th.
Frank Kohutek, IHRA Division 6 Director, has announced that Division 6 Finals will be back at Castrol Park in Edmonton for 2016. The races will be held on Labor Day weekend.
Thursday, 29 October 2015
The Summit Super Series, IHRA’s largest and most prestigious program for weekly bracket racers, has taken the next step in the evolution of the series. Beginning in 2016, the Summit Super Series track champions of each IHRA member track will win the right to compete in the Summit World Finals held at Memphis International Raceway on October 14-16, 2016.
This change eliminates the traditional run-off of Summit track champions at each of the Summit Team Finals events. It also eliminates the variations of filling a 16 car field that the series has struggled with formatting that worked for everyone. Additionally, champions from each of the Summit Team Finals main events will be invited to the Summit World Finals to compete in the Summit Super Series World Championship race. (more…)
The rules for oval track racing have been updated. Please visit the rules page for details.
Please join us for an informational meeting about the Alaska Raceway Park oval track on November 7, 2015, at 1:00pm in the High-Octane Lounge at the track. The meeting is for racers, hope-to-be racers, and other interested parties. Catch up on progress, plans, and schedule; get your questions answered. Weather permitting, there will be a guided tour of the facility; dress appropriately. Meanwhile, check the construction album on Facebook, the oval track Honor Board, and proposed oval rules. RSVP to the Facebook event.
