The International Hot Rod Association™ (IHRA) is proud to announce its Master and Advanced Jr. Dragster classes have been added to the annual Summit Racing Equipment Tournament of Champions presented by AMSOIL – held during the World Finals in Memphis, Tennessee – and will be will be sponsored by longtime series partner Summit Racing Equipment.

“The JR Race Car Jr. Dragster racers are the future of our sport and this announcement is exciting news for them,” said IHRA President Scott Gardner. “We would like to thank Summit Racing Equipment, our valued and longtime partner, for adding their support to this class by including them in the Summit Tournament of Champions and posting a most generous purse.”

The $100,000 Summit Racing Equipment Tournament of Champions presented by AMSOIL debuted in 2009 and is the sport’s first nationwide head-to-head tournament to determine the champions in each of the premier sportsman classes in IHRA competition. This revolutionary format not only reduces costs financially for IHRA racers, but it rewards all drivers who have had a successful year with a level playing field where location and finances are not a factor in determining the world champions.

Once there, all qualified Jr. Dragster drivers will compete in one class in head-to-head competition for the Summit TOC Junior World Championship.

Jr. Dragster drivers cannot race the same car in the Summit Super Series and Tournament of Champions should they qualify for both.
