Summit Racing Equipment to Support ‘Horsepower Wars’


Summit Racing Equipment has partnered with Power Automedia as the official parts supplier for its new Horsepower Wars automotive show. The head-to-head web-based series features fierce competition between rivals in one of four venues: the dragstrip, road course, engine dyno, or chassis dyno.

In the first episodes, Pony Wars - Mustang vs. Camaro, two teams are given either a 2017 Mustang GT or 2017 Camaro SS. The teams then receive an initial $5,000 budget for bolt-on mods, followed by $15,000 for a boost build off. The cars will be competing in drag racing, road racing, chassis dyno, and 60-0 braking. According to the company, Summit will not only help supply products, but Summit’s pricing will be used as a guide for each team’s budget.

Summit will also provide $7,000 of credit for each participant in the upcoming $10k Drag Shootout, in which teams are given only 10 days to buy, build, and then race a drag car with plenty of challenges along the way. According to the company, the $10K Drag Shootout represents a perfect fit for Summit’s extensive parts availability as all parts selected by each team from Summit’s website will receive free overnight shipping.

“We’re excited to work with Power Automedia and Horsepower Wars,” said Al Noe, Summit Racing chief marketing officer. “The show represents what our customers are all about—real people turning wrenches and making power in their own garages.”

“The $10K Drag Shootout is going to be an action-packed 10 days for all of the teams involved and those of us at here at Horsepower Wars,” said Andrew Wolf, editor of Dragzine.com. “With a narrow frame of time to build a vehicle from the ground-up, drama is certainly inevitable, but it’s going to be exciting to watch the creativity of these teams and what they can brew up using only limited funds.”
