summit_logoThis $200,000 program is the World Championship for IHRA member track sportsman racers. Summit Racing Equipment, the Official Mail Order Company of IHRA, sponsors a revolutionary program for IHRA sportsman racers. Providing the base for the Summit SuperSeries are the more than 90 IHRA member tracks across the local regions and divisions. The competitors are sportsman, or ET bracket racers, the backbone of grassroots drag racing. The two tiers comprising the Summit SuperSeries are the Summit SuperSeries World Championship and the Summit Team Finals.   


This program will crown a true Top and Mod World Champion won by racers at participating IHRA tracks in head-to-head competition each week. Each track will crown a Summit SuperSeries track champion who will then move on to race other track champions at each division’s Summit Team Finals at the end of the year. Those drivers that emerge victorious from the Summit Team Finals will meet at the IHRA World Finals for the Summit SuperSeries World Championship.

Two day Test & Tune scheduled for opening weekend!


2012_scheduleMark off your calendar, fuel up your race car, call off work and get your racing team or family in gear as SKYVIEW Drags has finally released their 2012 Racing Schedule!  At first glance, the schedule has the looks of a typical dragway schedule.  Looking at it in depth however will prove otherwise, with this year being one of the most action packed seasons in Skyview's history. Every friday night, street legal racing is the headline event, which could feature your neighbor kid, your old time friend from years ago, or even yourself in any car that has 4 wheels!  Its a great night to meet some of the points race regulars, or even race against your friends legally and safely to see who is the better racer.  As well, you don't need the fastest car to win, your objective is to just be the most consistent.

Before the points racing begins, Skyview will open their track Friday April 13 and Saturday April 14 for a double Test and Tune for the racers. The track will be open at 3, with time shots 5-9.  Tech will be open as well Friday evening so you can get everything certified on your car as well.  Racers are encouraged to show up early so your race car can be certified in a timely manner.

Skyview Drags newest writer Jacob Nye!

jacob nye profileSkyview's newest writer Jacob Nye, has a vast history involved with motorsports at really a young age.  I grew up mainly around the ovals of Selinsgrove for dirt track racing and Pocono Raceway for NASCAR events, as well as the local enduro race, Line Mountain 7 miler in Trevorton, PA. More recently though drag racing has become a very important part of my life, with having many options for racing within 2 hours of my home, Numidia, Beaver Springs, Skyview, Maple Grove.  Photography has been the biggest part of my life and these local drag strips have given me the chance to grow in my photography ability.  Now Skyview is giving that same exact chance for me with writing.  The 2012 season is fixing to be one of the most competitive seasons for everyone, and I am greatful to be part of this up coming season, as well as many more down the road, only 1/8 mile at a time.
