Shakedown at the Summit

Summit Racing Equipment Shakedown at the Summit presented by Mickey Thompson Tires is Drag Racing with an Attitude! A Win on your Roof......IS STILL A WIN!
 

You've gotta be here...September 15-17!

Just as the name implies...outrageous,ill-handling door cars skating dangerously down the quarter mile, draggin their bumpers on the asphalt along the way, occasionally changing lanes and swapping a little paint!  This is drag racing with an attitude...Where A win on your roof can still be a win!


This is the event where it is always dynamic and never static!
An
ything can happen in a blink of an eye, with erratic Pro Mods exceeding
250 mph in the 1/4 mile!

Ill handling door cars, with insane amounts of horsepower...
sometimes never make it to the finish line!
Or make it off the starting line...

Cars rocket off the starting line
into spectacular wheel stands!

Awesome Nitrous Purges!

Kurt Johnson with Total Venue Concepts, will be teaming up with Summit Motorsports Park to assist in the continued success of this event. In addition to his track prep experience, Johnson will be bringing his rotating drag, Hook Master 8400 static drag and Hook Master traction compound sprayer to ensure that track conditions are suitable for both big-tired and small-tired vehicles.


We welcome Lee “TEC” Sebring, to the announcer’s booth!
Sebring, who's famous for his factual yet fun delivery has agreed to announce at this year’s Shakedown at the Summit!

"I'm very familiar with the cars that will be at Shakedown, and I'm really looking forward to being part of this event," said Sebring, who was born in Pennsylvania, raised in Maryland and recently moved to Florida. "It shows a lot of promise, and I think it will be even bigger this year, with cars coming from all over the country."

Lee earned the name “TEC” an acronym for “top end charge,” when he was announcing for the Yellow Bullet Nationals.  He would excitedly exclaim “top end charge” when a car was laying down a substantial amount of power near the finish line.  

We look forward to working and listening to Sebring’s high-energy commentary at this year’s event!
