The Summit Racing Equipment World Finals featuring Nitro Jam takes place this weekend at Memphis International Raceway (MIR). The final race of the 2015 season will be highlighted by crowning champions in 14 classes in sportsman and professional racing on October 9 – 10.
The 2015 Nitro Jam Drag Racing Series has visited 11 venues across the U.S. and Canada over the course of the last eight months. There has been 28 different winners across five professional classes and a multitude of first time winners across all categories. In addition, the Crower Pro Mod class enjoyed their first season back with the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) after being absent for several years and witnessed a different winner at each event.
This year’s Summit Racing Equipment World Finals featuring Nitro Jam differs from previous season finales as four professional champions are yet to be crowned. The point’s battle has been tight all year and it will come down to the final pass on the quarter-mile in AMSOIL Nitro Funny Car presented by Aeromotive, Crower Pro Mod, Pro Stock and Nitro Harley. As little as 28 points separate number one and two in the Pro Stock class and as much as 91 points separate the top-two in Nitro Funny car.
Jay Turner is a three-time IHRA World Champion and sits in the top spot in the Nitro Harley class. Tracy Kile is in second with a 67 point deficit. Turner leads the winners in Nitro Harley with four and Kile has two wins with two runner-up finishes.
