WDRA REVEALS ITS 2024 BRACKET FINALS SCHEDULE
The World Drag Racing Alliance (WDRA) has revealed the schedule for its 2024 Summit Bracket Finals presented by Laris Motorsports. Following a successful inaugural season, the WDRA will return with a five-event series, supported again by Summit Racing Equipment and Laris Motorsports Insurance. The series will take place on five consecutive weekends.
The rapid schedule begins with the Midwest Bracket Finals at Eddyville Raceway Park from September 5-8. This event will be followed by the Eastern Bracket Finals at Keystone Raceway Park, scheduled for September 12-15. Competitors will then head to US 131 Motorsports Park for the Northern Bracket Finals, set to take place from September 19-22, 2024. The WDRA team will then embark on a southern journey for the final two events, both held at new host facilities. The Southern Bracket Finals will place at Montgomery International Dragway from September 26-29, followed by the Southeast Bracket Finals at Union Dragway on October 3-6, 2024.
WDRA representative Skooter Peaco spoke about the positive response from racers in the previous season.
“It was great to have a lot of the racers come to us with positive comments on the $3K-$5K-$5K race formats the WDRA created for the Bracket Finals,” Peaco said. “No one has ever put together that kind of high-paying event package for a Bracket Finals, so it was nice that we could pull that off in our first season.
“However, it was more rewarding to hear our racers tell us how well they thought the races were run and how much fun they had. The experience of qualifying for and running a Summit Bracket Finals event is what we will remember long after the money is gone. The dynamics of each event is our priority. That includes parking, managing the flow of the race, track prep, and safety, which is what the WDRA team and host facilities have a high level of expertise in. We are very proud of the racetrack owners and operators’ passion for the bracket racing community and for hosting this type of event at their facilities.”
Following a two-week break in the schedule, the season will culminate with the Summit World Championships presented by Suncoast Performance. This grand finale will crown the 2024 WDRA Summit Sportsman Drag Racing Series World Champions at a new host track. Montgomery International Dragway has been selected as the venue to welcome the WDRA track champions and Bracket Finals main event winners. From October 24-27, 2024, they will go head-to-head to determine the ultimate champions.
“We wanted to bring this event to a more centralized location, so when Brad Wheeler purchased Montgomery and joined the Alliance, the move was a natural fit for us,” Peaco explained. “Brad has done amazing things with the facility in his short time owning Montgomery, and we are looking forward to our 2024 Summit World Championships being held at one of the nicest facilities in the South.”
