IHRA DRS – AMSOIL Nitro Nationals
Orlando Speedworld Nitro Harleys
March 4-6, 2016

The stage has been set for one of the best season’s in International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) drag racing history. The IHRA AMSOIL Nitro Nationals at Orlando Speed World Dragway put the world’s best driver’s center stage and the result was unprecedented.

2015 IHRA Nitro Motorcycle World Champion Jay Turner sported a new motorcycle over the weekend and looked to be continuing his dominate performance from last year as he qualified in the number one position. Rickey House and Randal Andras rounded out the top-three qualifiers in the Nitro Motorcycle class. Newcomer Jake Stordeur took the class by surprise as he defeated Turner in the first round of eliminations and eventually ended up going into the final round with Jay Turner’s teammate Randal Andras. Andras ran a 6.380 at 215.62 mph against Stordeur’s 6.649 at 207.75 mph run and took home the first Ironman of the 2016 season.
