Tallmadge, Ohio – To kick-off the much-anticipated 2023 Summit Racing NHRA Nationals, the Summit Racing folks welcomed the Team Summit drivers to its Retail Super Store just outside Akron, Ohio for a meet and greet cruise-in. From there, the drivers made the 45 minute trip west to Norwalk, Ohio and Summit Motorsports Park to begin their race prep.
