Norwalk, OH – The International Hot Rod Association’s Patriots division will feature four double Summit Pro-Am events and will open the 2012 season at Richmond Dragway May 4-6. The family owned track is known for its ever improving facility amenities and home town hospitality. In past years the event has grown since its introduction into the Pro-Am tour and owners Johnny and Allison Davis are looking forward to hosting the event again in 2012. This event will host the IHRA’s Tournament of Champions Qualifying race.
The second stop on the Divisional tour will be Pittsburgh Raceway Park the weekend of June 1-3 in conjunction with the Nitro Jam weekend. The new Nitro Jam structure will include a test and tune on Friday followed by a Nitro Jam professional show later that night. Saturday will feature the first of two Summit Pro-Am points races and will stand as the divisions Summit Tournament of Champions qualifying event.
The second Nitro Jam professional show later that night will feature the final rounds of sportsman competition in front of a packed house. Sunday will wrap up the race weekend with a second Summit Pro-Am race. As a staple in northern drag racing, the Tedesco family has responded year after year to larger and larger Pro-Am events with an ever-growing facility. The facelift continues in the pre-season as the facility looks toward more renovations both on and off the track to prepare for the 2012 Summit Pro-Am tour once again.
Skyview Drags will once again host Patriot racers with their breathtaking views available only from the upstate New York Facility on June 15-17. In line with the rest of the divisional facilities on the Patriots tour, Skyview has been hard at work continuing to upgrade the facility as the popularity of the Pro-Am tour has grown in the region.
The Patriots season will close at the prestigious Maryland International Raceway August 24-26. Hosting a number of historic IHRA events throughout the years, the Miller family once again looks forward to welcoming the Pro-Am tour to Budds Creek.
