 Brandon Booher wins his first regsional TAD Title and finishes 3rd in the National Points

There is not a stick and ball sport or another form of motorsports that allows race fans the opportunity to enter the “locker room”, but at Summit Motorsports Park we do!  Each admission ticket allows race fans access into the racer’s pit area.  Fans can watch crew members’ race against the clock, servicing their vehicles before their driver’s next round of competition.  And there is always an opportunity to capture a few autographs and photographs along the way.

Summit Motorsports Park likes to get their fans excited, but more importantly we like to get the fans involved!  Friday night qualifying will be one such opportunity.  Five fans will be randomly chosen to be part of a panel of judges.  The judges will sit next to the race track and score the racers in Stock Eliminator and Super Stock's "showtime" sponsored by Croghan Colonial bank, on their ability to perform the best wheel stand during the Friday night qualifying session.  If you want to be part of our panel of judges then you need to be here!

You can meet the Regional Champions, other alcohol drivers and the featured talent of the event during a special autograph session which will take place Saturday afternoon during the Cavalcade of Stars.  Many of alcohol drivers will be back in July for the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals.  Start following these drivers now and watch how their season progresses.
