Old-School Muncie Dragway Extends Partnership with IHRA
Muncie Dragway is far from a cookie-cutter race track. The Albany, Indiana drag strip, which opened on Easter Sunday 1960, still has an old-school feel.

 
Those who race there love its character and that it takes a different skill set than a lot of other venues as track owner Scott Daniels pointed out.
“It’s old school. Our lanes are uneven where one lane is a little higher than the other,” Daniels said about the 1/4-mile track. “It takes driving to the finish line. You have to be a driver, not a wheel racer. It makes it a little tougher.”
Come Visit the IHRA Motorsports Booth at PRI
 Come visit the IHRA Motorsports Booth No. 2969 at the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Trade Show in Indianapolis on December 8-10, 2022.

 
The PRI Trade Show, the world’s premier business event for the auto racing industry, features the world’s largest gathering of motorsports professionals. There are 1,100 exhibiting companies with 70,000 attendees from all 50 states and 70 countries.

Onawa Dragway Looks to Start Next Chapter with IHRA
It’s an exciting time for Onawa Dragway which begins a next chapter under new ownership and still under sanction from the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA).

 
Justin Richards and his wife, B.J., have taken over the facility located halfway between Sioux City, Iowa and Omaha, Nebraska off Interstate 29. Featuring an all-concrete drag strip, the facility opened to a huge crowd as the Onawa Racing and Events Complex in 2018.

Albuquerque Dragway is celebrating its 60th anniversary and also a return home to the International Hot Rod Association in 2023.

 
The 1/4-mile track located on an 80-acre property operated under IHRA sanction in the 1980s and early 90s. Decades later, the IHRA’s focus on grassroots, Sportsman racing fits in nicely with Albuquerque Dragway’s plans. It made it the perfect time to come back home.

WHERE CAN YOU GET $100,000 IN EXCESS MEDICAL COVERAGE FOR $100?
WHERE CAN YOU GET $100,000 IN EXCESS MEDICAL COVERAGE FOR $100?

 

Anthem? Aetna? Blue Cross? Aflac? No, no, no, and no. The answer is simply becoming an IHRA member. How many of us have insurance coverage for our automobiles, home, and loved ones? Chances are, almost everyone. But how many of us have medical coverage at the track if something happens? If you do have medical insurance, will it cover your expenses in a racing-related accident?


 

Becoming a member of IHRA provides you excess medical coverage as a driver, crewmember or spectator. Racing at an IHRA track you have $5,000 in excess medical coverage but as an IHRA member, if you are injured in a track-related incident, you’ll receive $100,000.00 in excess medical coverage. If it’s a serious injury and you are forced to miss work, your IHRA coverage will pay you $200 a week for 26 weeks. No insurance company can provide you that much protection for the membership cost of only $100 a year.


 

In addition to the coverage, you’ll receive an IHRA membership and license that is good at the Summit Team Finals or any other IHRA event you choose to compete at over the course of the season. Once you become a member you can participate in the Summit Sportsman Spectacular or obtain an “X” number and participate in the $200,000 Summit Super Series program. Both of these include an IHRA rulebook, IHRA decals, and medical coverage at all the IHRA events plus a competition license.


 

Protect yourself and your family with $100,000 in medical coverage by becoming a competition member of IHRA today!

chase Elliott has been named NMPA Most Popular Driver presented by Hooters

 

 

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Chase Elliott might have had a disappointing end to the NASCAR Cup Series season, but his fans continue to make their support loud and clear.


 

For the fifth straight year, Elliott has been named NMPA Most Popular Driver presented by Hooters, the only major NASCAR award determined solely by the vote of race fans. Elliott, who finished fourth in the championship standings, was announced as the winner during the NASCAR awards banquet celebrating the 2022 season.


 

Elliott’s father, NASCAR Hall of Famer Bill Elliott, holds the record for the most award wins at 16. Dale Earnhardt Jr. won the award 15 times.


 

With the younger Elliott adding to his streak, the Most Popular Driver award has been presented to either an Elliott or an Earnhardt for 32 consecutive years.


 

Alongside Elliott were his three Championship 4 rivals (Joey Logano, Ross Chastain and Christopher Bell) among the top 10 vote-getters for this year’s award. Also in contention were Ryan Blaney, Alex Bowman, Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Kyle Larson and Martin Truex Jr.


 

The NMPA Most Popular Driver Award is one of the longest-running awards presented annually by the National Motorsports Press Association. It is the only major NASCAR award to be determined solely by a fan vote.
