Summit Racing Equipment has renewed its support for ANDRA drag racing, throwing its backing behind what can now be confirmed as a mammoth extended 2019/2020/2021 Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series season complete with a record prize pool.
The season extension will not only ensure the successful completion of the current competition, but will also boast 50 percent extra end of season prize money, for a total prize pool of more than $100k including $10k for the prestigious John Storm Memorial thanks to Summit Racing Equipment, creating the biggest prize pool in Australian Drag Racing history.
This is the seventh consecutive year that Summit Racing Equipment has supported ANDRA Drag Racing, and in that time ‘The World’s Speed Shop’ has invested more than $1 million dollars to the benefit of ANDRA drag racers through prize money and contingency payments; series, bracket and lane sponsorships; and the supply of goods.
As well as continuing its naming rights sponsorship of the Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series, the performance parts powerhouse has also renewed its backing for the Summit Racing Equipment Junior Dragster bracket for the fifth consecutive year. The partnership will allow ANDRA to continue to offer discounted licenses for Junior Dragster families.
“Summit Racing Equipment is excited to confirm our continuing support for ANDRA drag racing,” Summit Racing Equipment Motorsport and Events Manager, Jim Greenleaf, said.
“While the impacts of COVID-19 have thrown a major spanner in the works for this year’s Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series plans, we are always impressed by the passion and commitment of ANDRA and its membership base and we are excited to continue our role in supporting them on and off the track.
“The extension of the season into 2021 ensures that not only will competitors have the chance to truly compete for a coveted Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series title amidst this most challenging and unique time, but they will also have the chance to compete for a record prize pool.
“In addition to the increased end of year payouts, ANDRA’s racers will continue to benefit from exclusive discount pricing by qualifying as Summit Racing Pro Shop members. I am also excited to report that after considering customer feedback, Summit Racing has worked to reduce the cost of shipping and will continue to work in this area to ensure cost effective shipping for our Australian customers.
ANDRA Chief Executive Officer, Brett Stevens, said he was truly thankful for the continued support of not only Summit Racing Equipment but also the wider ANDRA membership base.
“Having the ongoing partnership of a business such as Summit Racing Equipment is important for ANDRA and our membership base, and so I am very happy to be able to announce that Summit Racing Equipment will continue its partnership with the Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series for a seventh year and with the Summit Racing Equipment Junior Dragster bracket for a fifth year,” Stevens said.
