SUMMIT SERIES NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS WILL BE ON THE LINE THIS WEEKEND IN LAS VEGAS
LAS VEGAS – The top Super Pro, Pro, Sportsman and Super Pro Motorcycle racers from NHRA’s seven geographical divisions will journey to The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway to vie for national titles in the NHRA Summit Racing Series National Championship. Summit Racing Series national champions will be decided in each of the four classes following three-round eliminators held during the Dodge NHRA Finals presented by Pennzoil, Oct. 30-Nov. 1.
Event sponsor Summit Racing Equipment is an industry leader in the distribution of racing parts and equipment through catalogs and the internet. The company also sponsors the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals and several Pro and Sportsman drag racers, including Pro Stock drivers Greg Anderson and Jason Line.
This year, bracket racers competed for points and cash awards during qualifying events at NHRA’s approximately 120 member tracks throughout North America. Each track’s top drivers then moved on to compete for individual and team honors at the NHRA Summit Racing Series Finals, which were held in each of NHRA’s seven divisions.
Twenty-eight champions — seven each from Super Pro, Pro, Sportsman, and Super Pro Motorcycle — were determined and will compete for national titles in Las Vegas, alongside one wild-card racer in each class, bringing the field in each category to eight.
Each of the 2020 national champions will receive $5,000, an NHRA Gold Card, a champion’s trophy, and a jacket. All qualifiers who attend the Las Vegas event are guaranteed a minimum of $3,000.
Competitors in Super Pro and Super Pro Motorcycle are permitted to use delay boxes; those in the Pro class are limited to a transbrake, two-step ignition, and four-wheel line-loc. Competitors in Sportsman are not permitted to use any electronics and must employ mufflers.
All racing is done on a five-tenths full Tree, and the Compulink Cross Talk feature will be used in Super Pro and Super Pro Motorcycle.
