Summit Racing NHRA Nationals

Have you made plans for the 4th of July? Celebrate the 4th of July with Nitro, Header Flames, Ice Cream and Fireworks with US!


John Force was finally able to end his 7 year drought by winning the 2014 Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals.  Prior to the 2014 race, Summit Motorsports Park was the only track he had not tamed.  His first attempt came in 2010, but Tim Wilkerson shut the door on his opportunity by claiming the event win.  During his top end interview, John gave his Wally to Bill Jr.  Watch the video clip.
