WOODBURN, Ore. (Sept. 4, 2009) -- The best bracket racers from across NHRA's Northwest division have come together this weekend at Woodburn Dragstrip for the division's Summit Racing Series Finals. Top points earning drivers in four categories, Super Pro, Pro, Sportsman and Motorcycle/Snowmobile, from across the region are vying for individual and team honors and a share of the cash purse worth more than $16,000. Racers in the High School category, Sport Compact and two classes of Jr. Dragsters will also run in the event.
Tomorrow's action will feature more time trials as well as the division's Race of Champions, slated to start at 1 p.m. The Race of Champions is a race within a race that pits the winningest drivers from each track in head-to-head competition.
