WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — The mid-way point in the season is approaching at many International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) Summit SuperSeries tracks around the country. The $200,000 Summit SuperSeries held at IHRA member tracks crowns Summit SuperSeries track champions in Top (Box), Mod (No Box) and Junior divisions.
Those champions, along with qualified Summit Team Finals champions from each IHRA region, are invited to compete in the IHRA Summit World Finals in Memphis, Tenn., on Oct. 18-20, 2018.
Over 10,000 IHRA Sportsman racers take part in the championship each season. Summit Racing Equipment, the official mail order company of IHRA, sponsors this program for thousands of grassroots racers at nearly 100 IHRA-sanctioned member tracks.
Here are the current Summit SuperSeries points leaders from IHRA member tracks Greer Dragway in Greer, S.C., and Quaker City Motorsports Park in Salem, Ohio.
Mark Davis Top (Box) is the current points leader over second-place Travis Dotson and third-place Ronnie Dotson.
