2014 IHRA Pittsburgh Nationals


 2014 IHRA Pittsburgh Nationals – Nitro Jam rain check information



Rain-affected Saturday tickets from the 2014 IHRA Pittsburgh Nationals will be good for an IHRA event at PRP in 2015

Following a rainout of the Saturday night show August 2nd at the 2014 IHRA Nitro Jam Pittsburgh Nationals, the International Hot Rod Association announced that all Saturday spectator tickets will be good for an IHRA event at Pittsburgh Raceway Park in 2015.

Those who attended this year’s Pittsburgh Nationals on Saturday August 2nd can hold on to their spectator tickets in a two-for-one deal where fans can bring their ticket back to an IHRA event at Pittsburgh Raceway Park next year and get themselves and a friend into the event.

For more information, please visit the Nitro Jam website at www.nitrojam.com or call the IHRA offices at (419) 663-6666


For the sportsman racers who entered the bracket program on Saturday, August 2nd, the Pittsburgh Nationals Iron Man race is rescheduled for Saturday, September 6th. Special Nitro Jam Iron Man trophies will be awarded to the winners in Motorcycle, Street, Modified, and Top classes. Racers can bring the wristbands they received upon entry on August 2nd to one of the remaining events and use it as a rain check. Those who lost or discarded their wristbands can provide their car number, and it will be checked against the tech cards from August 2nd. Please note, the Pittsburgh Nationals Iron Man race is a bracket race, with our regular bracket racing elimination classes. There will not be any Nitro Jam show classes. Our apologies for the delay in getting the details posted.

Congratulations Mia Tedesco!!!


It doesn't seem that long ago that Mia Tedesco was starting in her junior dragster:

She moved on to Mike's Auto Body Top class just a few years ago, and for the last couple of years has been traveling to IHRA and NHRA national and divisional events, and big money bracket races, with great success. This season, she has been driving the A/Fuel Top Alcohol dragster for Hirata Motorsports in select NHRA events. Today she scored her first Wally in Top Alcohol at the NHRA Division 3 Lucas Oil Drag Series event. Congratulations Mia!
