MORRISON, CO – MagnaFuel has stepped up to present a pair of $2,500-to-win shootout races for Top Sportsman and Top Dragster competitors at the Drag Illustrated World Series of Pro Mod presented by One Cure and J&A Service, Aug. 4-5, at Bandimere Speedway. The MagnaFuel Quick Star 16 (door cars) and Pro Star 16 (dragsters) Shootouts will supplement the $10,000-to-win Aeromotive Wild Card Shootout and $100,000-to-win World Series of Pro Mod.
“Top Sportsman and Top Dragster are the perfect complement to the Pro Mod show we’ve put together,” said Drag Illustrated Editor-in-Chief and race founder Wes Buck. “When we were laying the groundwork and putting together the class structures for this event, adding Top Sportsman and Top Dragster just made perfect sense. These are world-class cars, world-class drivers and wonderful people; really, in our opinion, two of drag racing’s most exciting and fastest-growing categories. You hear me talking about our efforts to ‘Make Drag Racing Great Again’, and these are some of the guys who are out here doing just that. They’re racing week in and week out for all the right reasons. We share their passion, and we’re excited to have them racing with us at the World Series of Pro Mod.”
