Irwindale, Calif. - - Adding to the fantastic forty-nine throbbin' Thursday nights of testing, tuning and running real hard already on the books for 2003 (that's January 9 through December 18) for Irwindale Dragstrip are (a lucky) thirteen additional special events that will see spectacular street legal drag racing happening at the hot eighth-mile on Friday and Saturday nights, as well as some super Sunday afternoons.

Three Saturday nights at the races will be part of the ten-race 2003 Summit Series ET Bracket Cash Bash Series for track championship and team points. They'll come early in the season with events on February 22, March 1, and March 15. The rest of the Summit Series will run on Sundays (May 18, June 15, July 20, July 27, August 17, and September 7. The Summit Series features tight competition in every division and a chance to represent Irwindale at the Championships at the end of the season.

Three Friday night Bracket Cash Bash events have been set: Friday July 11, August 22, and September 19. These are non-points affairs and are geared to bring out all of the very best bracket drivers from around the southland. At Irwindale's last "Bracket Bash" in early January, entries were cut off at 260 to give everyone enough runs for their money.

Fans are advised that some of the best street-legal drag racing ever seen will be on tap at Irwindale on the above dates. Irwindale's new dragstrip has consistently given some of the best 60-foot times that anyone has ever put up and the return road is within hand-slapping distance of the crowd along the spectator fence for "direct response" to the racers.

All events are priced the same for spectators: Adults $10 and $5 for kids. All Thursday night test and tune sessions are $20 for competitors. Other event fees will be announced shortly.
