“Why mess with success? These IHRA programs work well for our racers and IHRA member tracks although we are working on ways to make them even better. As stated before, our goal is to continue to be the leader in grassroots, Sportsman racing. We continue to work hard to take care of those who are the backbone of the sport of drag racing,” IHRA President and CEO Larry Jeffers said.
Stayed tuned as other IHRA plans will be announced in the coming months to make it even more appealing and more exciting for grassroots, Sportsman racers.
