Best Price in all of Racing!

3 Shows Friday Night, Saturday Night and Sunday afternoon!

Friday and Saturday Night! What better way to end an adrenaline filled day of racing, than to watch beautiful pyro-arrangements, choreograph to music. Our firework shows are larger than some communities 4th of July celebrations!

Meet the NHRA Stars of tomorrow: 
Top Alcohol Dragster & Funny Cars,
are considered among the fastest accelerating vehicles in the world!  They can cover the quarter-mile in just over 5 seconds at speeds over 270mph, and produce an estimate of 3,000 horsepower!

And over 500 additional sportsman racers!  Stock, Super Stock, Super Street, Super Gas, Super Comp, Top Sportsman and Top Dragster!

Jet Dragsters and Funny Cars, these unique machines will reach speeds up to 300 mph propelled by fire breathing jet engines (the same engine that an F-5 fighter plane uses).  A
jet can produce 4000 HP!  Each burner pop can be felt deep down in your chest and you will feel the heat from the jets on your checks as they fly down the strip!  The Hanna Motorsports stable of jets (Sarah Edwards, "Queen of Diamonds"; Rich Hanna "GOJO Firebird"; Ken Hall "Top Secret") and Scotty "Heat" Holdridge will demonstrate this for the race fans!  Bring your cameras and cell phones and film all the action!

Fan and Racer Interaction – Fans can meet and interact with the Future Stars of Tomorrow in their pit areas.  This is not customary in most motorsports venues or even stick & ball arenas.  But this is just part of “what we offer” here at Summit Motorsports Park.  And, there is NO additional fee, it’s included in the price of your admission!  Don’t leave home without your cameras and memory books!

FREE Parking! If you paid to park…you are not on Summit Motorsports Park property!  Our two parking lots are located off State Route 18 (Wilson and Linder’s Lots) and are within walking distance of the gate entrance. 

Good ol’ Fashion FAST…Family-Friendly Entertainment!  And it only cost $10!

We have a public suite available!
The public suite is located high atop of the Champions Reserved Seating Section (Summit Side).  It is approximately 200’ from the starting line, which can only be accessed via a private elevator.  The view is breathtaking and oversees the entire drag strip.  Patrons can observe the entire race from start to finish, including watching the racers return back to their pit areas.

This suite accommodates up to 36 patrons, on a first come first serve basis; and features indoor and outdoor seating. The indoor amenities include a climate control environment; floor to ceiling glass windows to optimize trackside viewing; spacious and comfortable seating and bar top tables.  A mini kitchen with wet bar and refrigerator are also included.  High Speed data connection is also available for those that need to stay connected to the outside world.  The outdoor private balcony features three (3) tiered rows comprised with stadium chairs.

The price for each ticket, for the entire event, is $350 and also includes VIP parking; access to private restrooms; snacks and/or meals and beverages (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic). 

Due to the limit availability, tickets will go just as fast.  Contact Yvonne Livengood at 419-668-5555 x457.
