Summit Racing has been a major supporter of drag racing going way back.
Since the mid-1980s, the company has sponsored race cars, national drag races, and entire sportsman series for the NHRA, IHRA, and other race circuits. Now, Summit Racing is expanding its support to a brand new continent–Australia.
The company has announced its sponsorship of the Australian National Drag Racing Association (ANDRA) Sportsman Series beginning with the 2015 season. Read more about it in Summit Racing’s press release below:
TALLMADGE, OH–Summit Racing Equipment and the Australian National Drag Racing Association (ANDRA) are excited to announce Summit Racing as the new title rights sponsor for the ANDRA Championship Drag Racing Sportsman Series beginning with the 2015 season.
ANDRA is the premier drag racing sanctioning body of Australia, sanctioning races in classes from Top Fuel to Junior Dragster. ANDRA competitors race at world-class quarter-mile facilities in Australia’s major cities.
Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports and Events Manager Jim Greenleaf experienced what ANDRA drag racing has to offer when he recently attended the Australian Nationals in Sydney.
“I was very impressed with the quality of the racer cars, the level of competition, and the enthusiasm of the racers, teams, and spectators,” Greenleaf said. “The ANDRA organization has an exciting vision for the future of drag racing in Australia. Summit Racing is excited to be the title sponsor of the Sportsman Series as well as being a partner with ANDRA to take sport of drag racing to the next level in Australia.”
“I am excited to be working with a global brand such as Summit Racing Equipment,” said ANDRA Drag Racing CEO Malcolm Bulley. “As we continue to grow, we welcome their input into our premier Sportsman Drag Racing Championship.”
The Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series will expand to 12 classes with the addition of Top Sportsman for the 2015 season.
“We look forward to working with Summit Racing Equipment to further develop the Sportsman Series,” said ANDRA Business Development Manager Jennifer Harrison. “We have a number of exciting developments planned for our members during the next three years.”
