Wild Horse Pass Team Summit’s First Points Race of the 2018 Season

Chandler, ARIZ. (January 27, 2018) – Wild Horse Pass Team Summit began their 2018 NHRA Summit ET Bracket Racing Series Saturday on the dragstrip at Wild Horse Pass Motosprorts Park.  With it being the first race of the year, the race was well attended in all classes.  Along with Team Summit, Arizona Super Comp Association and Arizona Super Street shared the track throughout the day.

After time runs in the morning and early afternoon to dial in the rides, elimination rounds began in the late afternoon.  Competitors would run late into the night looking for that first win of the year.  As the racing went on, both the air and the track temps began to cool. The remainder of Team Summit’s Super Pro class would have to finish their rounds on Sunday as Race 1 & Race 2 were a double header.
