Sonny’s Racing Engines and renowned engine builder Sonny Leonard have announced that Sonny’s will return as a major IHRA contingency sponsor in 2015 and will build upon its involvement with the IHRA’s Nitro Jam Drag Racing Series with a number of bonus programs for IHRA doorslammer competitors.

Sonny’s Racing Engines will post contingency winnings for racers in Crower Pro Mod and US Bounty Hunters Pro Stock with IHRA’s Nitro Jam Drag Racing Series, as well as with Good Vibrations Top Sportsman and Good Vibrations Top Dragster sportsman competitors. The sportsman postings will be good for both Nitro Jam Drag Racing Series national events and Summit Racing Equipment Pro-Am Tour presented by AMSOIL divisional events.

Pro Mod competitors who run a “Sonny’s Pro Mod #1 Qualifier Challenge” decal and qualify first will receive a $700 bonus if they run a Sonny’s engine and $200 if they do not. Pro Stock top qualifiers who run a Sonny’s engine will receive a $200 bonus.

In addition, Sonny’s Racing Engines will pay a $1,000 bonus to Pro Mod and Pro Stock champions and $500 to Pro Mod and Pro Stock championship runner-ups who run a Sonny’s engine.
