Plenty of showstopping entertainment will be on stage at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio in 2023.

There is additional cause for celebration, as the year will mark the 60th anniversary of the facility's existence and the 50th anniversary of the Bader family's ownership of it.

The curtain will open with the 42nd Annual Spring Warmup on April 15, followed by the Edelbrock Super Series Opening Day, April 22.

A fierce four-event stretch begins with the 2nd Annual AMRA Ohio Nitro Nationals presented by Arch Racing, May 19-21, 3rd Annual PDRA American Door Slammer Challenge presented by Callies, May 25-27, 17th Annual Cavalcade of Stars presented by Budweiser, June 1-4 and 23rd Annual NMRA Ford Performance Nationals, June 9-11.

Top Fuel, Funny Cars, Pro Stock, Pro Stock Motorcycle and other captivating categories will be in competition at the 17th Annual Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals, June 22-25, and mid-summer will be magnificent with the 32nd Annual Ames Performance Pontiac Nationals, July 21-23, 22nd Annual Lingenfelter Performance Blue Suede Cruise presented by Cometic Gasket, July 28-30 and the always-monumental 46th Annual Cornwell Tools Night Under Fire, Aug. 4-5.

Cars with turbo, supercharger, nitrous and naturally aspirated combinations will be cruising at America’s Racetrack for the 22nd Annual NMCA All-American Nationals, Aug. 24-27, and closing the curtain on the season several weeks later will be the TransTec Halloween Classic 50 presented by Harland Sharp, Oct. 7-15.
