Drag Illustrated Media announced yesterday it will venture into the world of race promotion this summer. The Drag Illustrated World Series of Pro Mod, August 4-5, 2017, will feature the best drivers and teams that legal Pro Modified racing has to offer. The first-of-its-kind, $100,000-to-win, winner-take-all event will be held at Bandimere Speedway near Denver, Colorado. “Putting on races has been a part of the Drag Illustrated plan since the very beginning,” said Drag Illustrated Editor-in-Chief Wes Buck. “We’ve spent the last 11 years building the Drag Illustrated brand, telling the stories of racers from all walks of life as they progress through their respective racing careers, and now it’s time to be part of some of those stories. “We feel the time is right to disrupt the industry; to try something fresh and new,” continued Buck. “Thankfully, Sporty Bandimere and the whole crew at Bandimere Speedway share our vision and belief in Pro Modified drag racing, and are equally excited to be a part of what is sure to be the biggest, richest and most talked about doorslammer race in history.” While the full line-up of drivers has yet to be determined, a host of Real Pro Mod Association (RPM) frontrunners have already signed on to converge on Bandimere Speedway’s picturesque mountainside facility for the one-of-a-kind Pro Mod tournament. Fourteen drivers will be cordially invited to participate in the WSOPM main event. A 15th driver will be voted in via fan vote online. A 16th “wild card” entrant will race their way into the main event during an open 16-car, $10,000-to-win Pro Mod shootout on Friday night.
