“Atmore is a great addition to the IHRA family. Gary Moore has done a marvelous job with the place turning it into a great destination for racers,” said Phil Gingerich, IHRA Director of Track Development. “The place received a complete facelift and will be a great addition to the area. We look forward to working with the track as it gets up and running and becomes a major player within our sportsman programs.”

A longtime NHRA facility, Hobbs Motorsports Park will hold its first IHRA Summit SuperSeries competition later this month and will be a welcome addition to the Division 4 roster.
“We have seen steady, solid growth in Division 4 and that continues with the addition to Hobbs,” said Frank Kohutek, IHRA Division 4 Director. “Hobbs is our second track in New Mexico joining Roswell Dragway which signed last year. Our hope is as tracks continue to see the benefit of being a part of the IHRA family we can continue to grow Division 4 and further establish Division 7.”
