The three-round series will get underway at Ironbark Raceway across April 20 and 21, before heading to Benaraby Raceway for round two on August 31. The third and final round will then be held at Palmyra Dragway across October 4 and 5. Once again, the series is being supported by leading performance powerhouse, Summit Racing Equipment. “Since the establishment of the Summit Racing Queensland Championship we have been very pleased to be able to play a part in what we believe is a great concept,” Summit Racing Equipment Motorsport and Events Manager, Jim Greenleaf, said. “This series is an important part of our campaign to support grassroots racing and regional tracks in Australia and we can’t wait to see what the third instalment will have in store.” The state-based championship develops and promotes drag racing in regional Queensland, and will enjoy its third- running in 2019. The winning competitors will be announced as the ANDRA Queensland Champion for their class with the awarding of a prestigious ANDRA Copper Christmas Tree trophy. Following two successful years so far, the 2019 series will once again be run as a joint effort between the committees of Palmyra Dragway, Ironbark Raceway and Benaraby Raceway. “We are very pleased to again have the backing of the performance powerhouse that is Summit Racing Equipment,” Palmyra Drag Racing Club President, Glen Cunningham, said. “We have been very proud of how the series has developed in its two short years and the support of Summit Racing Equipment and ANDRA has played a critical part in that development. “The great enthusiasm of the regional drag racing community of Queensland in embracing our series as it has grown and developed has been fantastic to see also, and I can’t wait to see how the series continues to grow over the coming years.” For more information on the Summit Racing Queensland Championship, please visit www.facebook.com/andra.QLD.Champs/ For more information on Summit Racing Equipment, visit www.summitracing.com
