Texas Motorplex Welcomes Back NHRA’s South Central Division For The Summit Series Finals
ENNIS, Texas – Texas Motorplex will host the 2011 NHRA South Central Division Summit Racing Series Finals, September 30 – October 2. Top drivers from NHRA member tracks across the South Central division will compete in six classes for individual and team honors. Individual champions in No-Electronic Quick, No-Electronic Street, Motorcycle, and Super Pro (or Pro) will advance to a run-off against the winners from NHRA’s other six divisions at the Auto Club of Southern California NHRA Finals in Pomona, Calif., in November. (The winners in Super Pro and Pro have a runoff to determine who will compete in Pomona.)
Participants in the top classes will compete for cash awards of more than $25,000. Drivers who compete in Pomona will each receive $3,500 and the champions in each class will earn $5,000. Competitors in the High School class will earn trophies.
The team from Thunder Valley Raceway, located in Noble, Oklahoma, won the team championship last year at the Texas Motorplex. Individual winners were Sandra Marshall in Super Pro, Brad Young in Pro, Jeff Hefler in No-Electronic Quick and in No-Electronic Street, and Tony Davis in Motorcycle. Hefler went on to be the 2010 Summit Racing Series Sportsman National Champion at Pomona last year.
Time trials at Texas Motorplex are scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. The Race of Champions, a race within a race where the top points-earning drivers from each track square off in head-to-head competition, will start at 1 p.m. Saturday, and all classes will run first round of eliminations afterward. Final eliminations begin at 9 a.m. on Sunday.
