What happened to IHRA, who differentiated themselves from NHRA by featuring big inch pro stock and then pro mod?

A large number of articles on CompetitionPlus features....Pro Stock. Same for NHRA's website.

Further.... besides the Summit & Jegs teams, and to a lesser extent Cagnazzi, what are the other participants in the class doing to promote themselves?
Answer: Not Much.....

Bottom line is, people are going to gravitate to what appeals to them, and no amount of promotion or harping will change that.
Baloney, I couldn't disagree more.

Basically saying "Hey fans, completely disregard the cool cars at the ready line that are competing next...they are not relevant". The average fan never gets an explanation about what the other classes are, and what they are about. If NHRA spent one tenth of the time they spend on Nitro explaining other classes and how they work, it might help develop fans of other Classes. Sadly, NHRA apparently has no interest in doing so.
Excellent post. It gets a little old listening to some of these enablers who have left nitro run drag racing into it's weak state.
