Canadian Mike Scott, 2014 IHRA Nitro Harley Champion, Returns to Competition this Weekend in Grand Bend

@IHRA • @GBMotorplex • NORWALK, Ohio (June 23, 2015) - The International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) drag racing community will see a familiar face this weekend at Grand Bend Motorplex as last year's Nitro Harley champion, Mike Scott, is scheduled to make his return.
The former champion competed for Turner Racing in 2014 and took home three wins during the season. The Nitro Harley championship came down to the final race at Memphis International Raceway with four drivers competing for the number one spot. Scott was leading the standings and did not advance to the final round, a win by his teammate, Jay Turner, against Randal Andras sealed the deal.  
Scott intended on running the entire Nitro Jam season in 2015 but work commitments did not allow his full-time return. He was able to schedule time off to race in both Canadian races this year and will compete in the Nitro Harley class with his former team, Turner Racing. The goal for Scott is to come back full force in 2016 and win championship number two.  
The Mopar Nationals Nitro Harley class currently includes eight entries: Rob Brown, Jim Fagan, Tracy Kile, Alvin Kobernuscz, Lyle Newton, Mike Pelrine, Jay Turner and Mike Scott. There is only 10-points separating the top-three in the point standings. Randal Andras leads with 399 followed by Jay Turner with 390 and Tracy Kile with 389.  
This year's Mopar Nitro Jam Nationals marks the 15th consecutive year the IHRA has traveled to Grand Bend Motorplex to celebrate one of drag racing's biggest and most exciting events.
