The DRAG ILLUSTRATED World Series of Pro Mod [WSOPM] will go down in history as the richest and most celebrated Pro Mod racing event of all-time, as well as the most significant since the eliminator was established nearly 30-years ago. During a unique winner-take-all tournament under the lights at Bandimere Speedway in Denver, Colorado, on August 4-5, 2017, the first WSOPM champion will be crowned and rewarded with $100,000. The inaugural WSOPM champion will also be immortalized on the cover of DRAG ILLUSTRATED and presented with a custom championship ring.

Taking a dramatic departure from traditional shootouts, WSOPM competitors will be afforded three quarter-mile shakedown runs with the timing scoreboards turned OFF. Racers will be given a time slip following their run, however, it will have been cut in half. It is imperative that competitors’ individual performances remain confidential. Two shakedown runs are slated for Friday afternoon/evening. A final shakedown will be provided on Saturday afternoon prior the start of eliminations.

The WSOPM utilizes a 16-car eliminator ladder – 14 teams are invited to participate while a 15th is voted into competition via online fan vote and 16th is determined during the Aeromotive Wild Card Shootout (the winner is inserted into the field).

One month prior to the event (Wednesday, July 5th, 2017), driver names will be drawn from a hat during DRAG ILLUSTRATED‘s weekly Facebook Live show (Wes Buck Live!) to establish first-round pairings.

By-and-large the DRAG ILLUSTRATED World Series of Pro Mod abides by the rules standardized by the NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Drag Racing Series with slight adjustments based on the unique atmospheric conditions present at its host track Bandimere Speedway outside Denver, Colorado.
