Time to Suit Up for the Summit Super Pro $75K Challenge

Loose Rocker Promotions returns to Piedmont Dragway May 13-15th for the Summit Super Pro $75K Challenge.

JULIAN, NC – It’s almost time for drivers to experience Loose Rocker’s largest Top ET payout to date! The Summit Racing Equipment Super Pro $75K Challenge is coming to Piedmont Dragway May 13-15, 2021.

Ten years ago, Anthony Walton and Michael Beard joined together to create big money bracket events from a racer’s perspective with Loose Rocker Promotions.

Nowadays, this dynamic duo has evolved into one of the top promotion teams while continuing to adapt with the always-changing race climate.

Calling Top ET to the Lanes

The Summit Super Pro $75K Challenge is an eighth-mile, all run, top bulb race with CrossTalk.

Door cars and dragsters are welcomed and will be ran separately, with their own bye runs, until the ladder round of 16 cars or less. Drivers will be paired by reaction time and placed on a Pro Ladder, which will be re-laddered each round.

Double entries are allowed but no vehicle or driver may go down the track more than twice per round.

Forget the Split, Just Win Four Rounds

While big money bracket racing keeps soaring into astronomical payouts, Loose Rocker squares up with their own special twist to the format. They have literally flipped the flyer upside down, putting the emphasis on the incredible round money up for grabs during the Super Pro $75K Challenge.

Racers who turn on the 4th round win light during Friday’s $75K main event will earn $1,000 in round money. That is more than enough to cover the entry fee for all FIVE races of the weekend! During Thursday and Saturday’s race, a 4th round win earns $200, which is more than a single day entry for those races.

The round money actually starts accumulating once you win third round with $100 Thursday and Saturday, but a crazy $500 on Friday!

Guaranteed Green to Fill Racer’s Wallets

Everyone will pay at the gate to enter the Summit Super Pro $75K Challenge and a weekend entry is $750.

ATI Performance Thursday and Abruzzi Transmissions & Converters Saturday both pay $12,500 to the winner and $3,000 for runner up. Semifinalists will pick up $1,000 for their efforts. Round money begins with a third round win where drivers earn $100. If you lose first round, it’ll cost you $100 to buyback.

The main event on Friday is presented by Summit Racing Equipment and boasts a $75,000 prize to the winner. If the race reaches ten rounds of competition, the payout increases to $100,000! The runner up claims a cool $10K while semifinalists earn $3K, but the cash flow starts accumulating with $500 for a third round win. First round buybacks will be available for $300 per entry.

An Extra Chance for Cash

Time permitting, there will also be two gamblers races that pay $3,000 to win, $1,000 for runner up, and $500 to the semifinalists. Drivers start earning $50 per round win beginning with a third round win light.

The entry fee is $100 and there are no time runs or buybacks for the gamblers races. The plan is to have the gamblers race after Friday and Saturday’s main events, if time allows.
