IHRA Summit Pro-Am at Carolina Dragway

IHRA Summit Pro-Am at Carolina Dragway

A Divisional Double Feature

After an unpredictable start to the 2014 season at the season opener last month, status quo returned to the Summit Racing Equipment Pro-Am Tour presented by AMSOIL over the first weekend in March as the top racers from IHRA's southernmost division returned to the forefront at Carolina Dragway.

Multi-time divisional champion Mark Nowicki continued his hot start to the 2014 season, winning his third consecutive race in Super Stock and improving his round record to 14-1 on the year.

Defending divisional champions Mike Thompson, B.J. Bianchi and Dave Marcus Jr. also took home Ironman trophies during a weekend that saw another large bump in car counts over last season and another large spectator count tuning in for the series' live broadcast on www.ihra.com
