TULSA, OKLAHOMA – (March 7, 2024) The Summit Racing Equipment Mid-West Drag Racing Series, along with Flying H Drag Strip are pleased to announce the largest payout ever in pro mod racing with the inaugural Fall Smackdown at the brand-new facility in Odessa, Missouri, from September 19th to 21st, 2024.

Witness history in the making, as we present the Main Event featuring $150,000 up for grabs for the winner and $25,000 for the runner-up, sponsored by M&M Transmission and Proline Racing Engines. Total Pro Mod Payout totals $253,000.

The MWDRS is paying entry for any Pro Mod racers who attend four of the fist six events of the 2024 season to give back to those who have supported the series.

“We could not do this (MWDRS) for seven years without the support of our racers in all classes. Being able to help out with entries for PM is a huge deal for them to put that money back into their programs,” states Series Founder Keith Haney. “Working on this project also with Scott Higgs has been such a pleasure. We’ve been talking about this for a long time with months of details”.

For those who haven't attended the required number of events, pre-registration is available at $2500. Entries are limited to just 45 outside of the racers who've already competed in four of the six events. The Stroud Safety Pro Mod Presented by M&M Transmission and Pro Line Racing will be a 32-car field.

The Undercard Event (Slammers) Class sponsored by Zimmerman Properties will showcase all non-qualified cars and first-round losers from the main event. There is no entry fee for the Undercard and a prize of $25,000 for the winner and $10,000 for the runner-up.

“The Undercard event gives everyone a chance to take home big money. We want everyone to be able to race and go home with something,” states Event Director Ellen Eschenbacher. “The Undercards in all the classes have been a big part of this event planning from the very beginning.”

“We’ve had a lot of great talks about drag racing and how to start off our heritage at Flying H with a bang. The area is desperate for racing and we want to bring them the best,” states Flying H Drag Strip President Scott Higgs. “With Pro Mod racer Blake Housley on board as Vice President, we have a wealth of knowledge in our facilities.”

Strange Engineering is providing a Racer Appreciation Party on Friday evening with live music, food and fun for all racers and crews attending the event.

Details on the Stroud Safety Pro Mod Class Presented by M&M Transmission & Pro Line Racing Purse include the Main Event winner receives $150,000, Runner-Up $25,000, Semis $5,000, Quarters $2,500, down to the 16th $1,000 each with the Fuel Tech #1 Qualifier receiving $5,000.

The Zimmerman Properties Pro Mod Undercard event will pay $25,000 to the Winner, $10,000 to the Runner-Up, with $2,500 Semis and $1,250 Quarters for a total of $45,000.
