WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Union Dragway and the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) have reached a multi-year sanctioning agreement.
The facility started out under IHRA sanction when construction was completed in 2008 and has remained an IHRA-member track for all, but two years during a brief ownership change.
Located in Union, S.C., it is an 1/8-mile track that sits 45 minutes southeast of the racing hotbed of Spartanburg, S.C. Track operator Tony Brown keeps a full schedule of events from weekly IHRA Summit SuperSeries points series to grudge racing throughout the year.
“Union Dragway has endured a lot of changes in ownership during the time it has been an active facility, but the constant has been Tony Brown,” said IHRA Division 2 & 9 Director Josh Peake. “Tony and his crew have done a great job keeping Union up and running during some challenging times. Tony carries that passion for the sportsman racer that we at the IHRA share with him. That makes a great fit for the Union Dragway racers that compete in the IHRA sportsman focused programs.”
Union Dragway is home to IHRA Summit SuperSeries world champion Dustin Carroll who claimed the first-ever Sportsman class championship in 2019.
Track champions at the South Carolina facility in 2020 were: Todd Sinclair (Top), Rickie Dunn (Mod), Josh Carroll (Sportsman) and Jaden Price (Junior Dragster).
