Did I miss-read? It sounds like he is only stepping away from pro-stock.
Maybe pro-mod is in his future? OR?

One Dodge down... one to go.

Enjoy the countdown as there may not be another one in there for a while.

Allen, Roy and the whole family really are a class act and I wish them the best. I will miss you guys, Allen has always said he will not drive anything else; It's Mopar or No Car and he meant it. It has to be tough when your the only one competing with Mopar and basically getting no help from the manufacturer so You are basicly on an island alone fending for yourself. Roy has been about the only one able to make them run competitively where everyone else has failed (Elite) miserably. I think V's engine builder Bob from Madcap was the only other person other then Roy to have a grip on the Mopars. Allen-Roy Good Luck in your new ventures, you will be missed.....

Default It all started

It all started with buying the weight break rules. Then buying more rules changes. Now they have what they wanted. Chevrolet Pro Stock.

It is the Chevrolet Indy Nationals to boot. Great day in Pro Stock history.

Who will win the Chevrolet Pro Stock burn out contest?

How would you feel to be trying to make horsepower everyday of you life , in a class that NHRA is letting die off ? This 100% makes total sense . Let the big 3 , Black, Gray & Freeman waste there money chasing one more bragging right and little gold man with tire .
