IHRA, Centerville Dragway Reach Multi-Year Agreement

Centerville Dragway and the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) have entered into a multi-year sanction agreement. 

Centerville Dragway located in Centerville, AR, is a 1000’- and 1/8-mile race track that first opened in 1977. The track was completely resurfaced in 2016 and becomes a sanctioned IHRA facility for the first time in 2021.  
 
A family-owned business, Centerville features weekend heads up and bracket racing events. The track also hosts Outlaw, small-tire, and index programs. 

“I want to thank Wayne and Patty Styles for giving IHRA the opportunity to offer their racers our sportsman focused programs,” said IHRA Division 4, 6, and 7 Director Frank Kohutek. “Centerville Dragway has a real family type of atmosphere and they will be a perfect fit when they participate in the Summit Team Finals and Summit SuperSeries World Finals.  Centerville is a great addition to our IHRA Division 4-member track family.”
