Summit Racing Equipment to sponsor NHRA King of the Track racing program
Monday, January 30, 2012
Summit Racing Equipment has expanded its involvement with NHRA and will become the title sponsor of the Summit Racing NHRA King of the Track program.
The Summit Racing NHRA King of the Track is a special event that is offered to all NHRA member tracks across the country, Canada, and Puerto Rico as a special event for their bracket racers and their bracket racing programs. Each track will have the option to host one Summit Racing King of the Track event each year. The event will feature a runoff between individual class winners, with the coveted NHRA Wally being awarded to the Summit Racing King of the Track winner at each NHRA member track.
“The NHRA King of the Track program is a great opportunity to support bracket racers and tracks across the country in addition to our Summit Racing Series,” said Jim Greenleaf, Summit Racing’s motorsports and events manager. “The program allows the tracks to put together an exciting weekend of racing as racers compete for the title King of the Track.”
The program is just one of several specialty race programs offered to NHRA member tracks that also include the National DRAGSTER Challenge and the NHRA Jr. Drag Racing League Challenge.
The sponsorship extends Summit’s involvement in NHRA; the company is also the title sponsor of the NHRA Summit Racing Series, which culminates in the crowning of Summit Racing Series national champions. Summit is also the title sponsor of NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series events in Las Vegas, Atlanta, and Norwalk. Summit also is the primary team sponsor for the Ken Black Racing Pro Stock team, featuring drivers Greg Anderson and Jason Line.
The 2013 Summit Racing NHRA King of the Track event at Atlanta Dragway is scheduled for Saturday, August 10, 2013.
