Little River Dragway Renews IHRA Commitment

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Little River Dragway and the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) have reached a multi-year sanctioning agreement.

The Holland, Texas track opened in 1957, but the historic facility is still recognized as one of the country’s best tracks. It was recently named the IHRA Division 4 (Renegades) Track of the Year, an honor it also received in 2013.

In 2021, Little River Dragway hosted the IHRA Sportsman Spectacular presented by Hagerty and Moser Engineering. 

Leonard Greathouse and Travis Jackson won the Top (Box) and Mod (No Box) races at the Texas track. Other winners were David Huerta (Sportsman) and Evan Welborn (Junior Dragster).

Speaking of the younger racers, Little River Dragway has also served as the home track for the IHRA Junior Dragster Team Finals. Some of the best Junior Dragster drivers in the country, including Chance Turman and Graeme Rufenacht, are frequent competitors at the historic track. Little River’s Parker Richey, was the winner in the Beginner class at the 2021 Junior Finals.

Little River Dragway has one of the strongest IHRA Summit SuperSeries programs in the country. Michael Wayne Turman was runner-up in the Mod class at the 2020 IHRA Summit SuperSeries World Finals.

Another Little River racer, Robert Schoemer, captured the Sportsman win at the 2021 IHRA Division 4 Summit Team Finals.
