Summit Racing has invited six of our Bear Motorsports Junior Dragsters presented by Wiseco to be on display during the upcoming Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals, July 4-7 2013. “This was a impromptu marketing idea. The top two in points, in each of our three junior classes as of June 8th were chosen to represent,” said Bobbie Bader. “We are excited for them to have this opportunity. If time permits, these juniors will get to make a pass on Sunday afternoon before the final round of eliminations.”
Representing the juniors will be…
Novice: Allyson Downs and Simone Walker
Intermediate: Zac Gill and Stephen Crowell
Advanced: Nina Jacob and Scott Chitty
Many of the professional and sportsman racers who will be competing next week got their start in racing at their local tracks, just like these young folks.
“I started in 1992 in a Junior Dragster and dreamed of being a pro driver someday. A lot of kids have that dream and it doesn't happen for many of them. lt was one of those moments where it was hard not to be emotional because we had worked so long and hard to get there. That moment you work your entire life for; you breathe drag racing and it is hard to explain that exact moment, but it was a huge deal for my family." - Erica Enders-Stevens recalling her first career Pro Stock win at the O'Reilly Auto Parts Route 66 NHRA Nationals at Route 66 Raceway in 2012.
