MARTIN, Michigan - Fans and competitors for the upcoming IHRA Northern Nationals Nitro Jam presented by Aeromotive will be in for a treat before they even see the first race car thunder down the quarter mile. The two mile stretch of road known as 12th Street that connects the state of the art racing grounds to M-222 and US 131 highways has undergone major paving improvements.
This upgraded stretch of road will greatly boost the traffic flow to and from US 131 Motorsports Park and the International Hot Rod Association is thrilled that its fan base will be the first benefactor. Scott Gardner, President of the International Hot Rod Association comments, “US 131 Motorsports Park is a tremendous race track and to see the township and road commission support the infrastructure connecting this facility to the highways is a breath of fresh air.”
The International Hot Rod Association™ (IHRA) will make stop number nine on the 2015 Nitro Jam tour at US 131 Motorsports Park. Plan to be in Martin, Michigan August 7-8 to view one of the most interesting seasons of Nitro Jam competition as they begin the final stretch of a tight points competition in the AMSOIL Nitro Funny Car presented by Aeromotive, Mountain Motor Pro Stock, Crower Pro Modified, Nitro Harley, and Jet Dragster competition.
The Division 1, Patriots, event scheduled at Empire Dragway Aug 21-23 will also count as an “In Division” race for those racers claiming Division 3, North Stars, points in the Summit Racing Equipment Pro-Am tour presented by Amsoil.
Dragway 42, in West Salem, Ohio, is entering the concrete and paving phase of their massive reconstruction of the entire racing facility. The relentless Ohio rain patterns have greatly stalled progress of laying track and pit road surfaces.
IRG Sports + Entertainment™ (IRG) and the International Hot Rod Association™ (IHRA) is proud to announce that Williams Racing has signed a multi-year agreement to become the presenting sponsor of the Mopar Nitro Jam Nationals held at the Grand Bend Motorplex in Grand Bend, Ontario.
