Thunder Valley Dragways to Host Ironman Classic in August

HOUSE SPRINGS, Missouri —  It’s not too early to plan ahead as Thunder Valley Dragways will host an IHRA Ironman Classic event on August 19-20.

Saturday will be an IHRA Summit SuperSeries points race at the Marion, South Dakota track featuring the Box, No Box and Junior Dragster classes, along with a Street Car Shootout and a High School Teen Championship race.

Sunday is the IHRA Ironman Classic with trophies to be handed out in five different classes. It features the Top ET, Mod ET, Sportsman, Junior Dragster and Motorcycle classes all competing for prestigious IHRA Ironman trophies.

The IHRA Ironman Classic program is offered to all member tracks. Prior to this program, a sportsman racer could only win an Ironman if they traveled to a divisional or IHRA national event. This program gives local tracks a chance to create extra excitement in their bracket program and offer competitors a chance to win the prestigious Ironman.

In addition to the enthusiasm surrounding the IHRA Ironman Classic, multiple sponsors have come on board to offer extra prize money for youth racers with the Jr. Dragster Jackpot.
