Summit Racing Equipment Shakedown at the Summit XVI – Sept. 14th, 2018
Just as the name implies…outrageous, ill-handling door cars skating dangerously down the quarter mile, draggin their bumpers on the asphalt along the way, occasionally changing lanes and swapping a little paint! This is drag racing with an attitude…Where a win on your roof can still be a win!
We will have the Fastest and Most Unpredictable Pro Mods, from the four corners of the USA, assemble at one time, each wanting the Guaranteed top prize of $40K. And, if brave enough to try, can take home another $5K by winning the Money Shot during qualifying.
Shakedown is the event where it is always dynamic and never static! Anything can happen in a blink of an eye, when erratic Pro Mods exceed 250 mph in the 1/4 mile!

We welcome Lee “TEC” Sebring, to the announcer’s booth!
Sebring, who’s famous for his factual yet fun delivery has agreed to announce at this year’s Shakedown at the Summit!
“I’m very familiar with the cars that will be at Shakedown, and I’m really looking forward to being part of this event,” said Sebring, who was born in Pennsylvania, raised in Maryland and recently moved to Florida. “It shows a lot of promise, and I think it will be even bigger this year, with cars coming from all over the country.”
Lee earned the name “TEC” an acronym for “top end charge,” when he was announcing for the Yellow Bullet Nationals. He would excitedly exclaim “top end charge” when a car was laying down a substantial amount of power near the finish line.
We look forward to working and listening to Sebring’s high-energy commentary at this year’s event!
