IHRA Announces Hot Rod Racing Classic for 2024

The International Hot Rod Association (IHRA)–based in House Springs, Missouri–has announced the IHRA Hot Rod Classic is set to debut in 2024.

“Since we took over IHRA last year, we’ve heard from so many racers how they wish we would bring these classes back,” IHRA Owner Larry Jeffers said.

Similar to the Pro-Am races from previous years, teams will compete in Quick Rod, Super Rod and Hot Rod classics to earn special black and chrome IHRA Ironman trophies. 

In addition, there will be a heads-up Real Steel, No-Time class that requires OEM steel shell, steel doors and steel fenders (except those originally fiberglass, which must be factory-original parts). No Billet heads or engine blocks are allowed.

Top Sportsman and Top Dragster will also be contested at the majority of events, depending on location, as will bracket races for the Top (Box), Mod (No Box) and Junior Dragster classes. Each event will be tailored to the individual tracks and racers must be IHRA members to compete in these events.
