Added Incentive for Rocky Mountain Nationals

Professional Racers making the trip to the 2008 Rocky Mountain Nationals at Castrol Raceway in Edmonton will have additional incentive this season.

The Rocky Mountain National IHRA Crew Bonus will provide the top 12 Alcohol Funny Car drivers and the top 18 in both Pro Stock and Pro Modified (according to IHRA points standings following the President's Cup Nationals) with a free car and driver entry, plus four crew entries, for the 2008 event. This will be in addition to the Edmonton travel incentive already in place.

"This is another way we want to take care of our racers. We understand the tow to Edmonton for the Rocky Mountain Nationals is the longest on our circuit and, with the price of fuel, our racers could use a break," IHRA president Aaron Polburn said. "With our cash incentives this is a great opportunity we hope our professional drivers will take advantage of. We think a free car and driver, with the additional crew entries, is an excellent added value. This is a great idea Rob Reeves from Castrol Raceway wanted to see in place and we all owe him a thanks for this."

In order to receive these incentives, a team must hold a top 12 or 18 standing in their class, make two rounds of qualifying (including the "Night of Fire"), and if qualified, run the first round of eliminations. If you do not qualify, but otherwise meet the above criteria, you will still receive the incentive amount.
