Jason Miller and his crew once again invaded Maryland’s International Raceway for what’s become essentially a tradition in drag racing for both import and domestic fans. The 17th annual World Cup Challenge, now a three-day event, brings out some of the quickest, fastest, nastiest drag cars from around the country for an all-out war.
Chris Miller and Allan Jimenez stole the show as news of their will to win spread throughout the Internet only moments after it went down. Piloting the Sheepeybuilt Inc. Integra, Miller breaks at the tree and Jimenez breaks shortly after. Miller unstraps his harness, jumps out of the car and starts pushing the Integra toward the finish line (over 1,000 feet). Having coasted to a stall further down the track, Jimenez hears the crowd screaming, takes note of Miller, then jumps out and pushes his car the rest of the way to the finish line. Although Miller couldn’t push the car the entire distance, his efforts certainly didn’t go unnoticed by both domestic and import fans around the world.
What was once considered big with 5,000 to 10,000 visitors has steadily become an industry juggernaut with over 20,000 fans swarming the stands to witness the race action in person. Along with the ETs and trap speeds are a car show, vendor row, live bands, and much more. Don’t miss out on the 18th annual World Cup Finals already locked in for November 1–3, 2013.
