Sure - someone could sponsor a class like this - but again, someone has to PAY for these guys to show up. Nitro is expensive. I like the idea...

Only thing I see out of this is NHRA know's nothing about their fan base. Bristol, the south, home of the door cars, dah!!

The IHRA WAS booking in ‘paying’ for those NFC’s to be there. That whole show was just like the WWE. That’s why they showed up to their event and not Bako. NHRA NFC is dying. They’re all going outlaw NFC, buying used big show junk attempting a few outings on the tour, fuel altered, or running away.

it took them 30 plus years to make the "stock" cars like stock with fuel injection, how long before they get to run turbo's?

I was thinking about this the other day. The only heads up n/a classes left in NHRA are Prostock and the Hemi Challenge.

The factory showdown cars are all boosted.

only 2019 Honda accord engine options are 4cyl turbo motors.

I would love to see Prostock bodied cars use OEM motors, Ecoboost v6 from ford pickup. New corvette overhead cam motor. Hellcat motor.

If Pro Stock is gone from the show at Bristol, does this means the Pro Mods will now get to park in the pro pit area? If so, this is great news! It means we won't have to walk as far to see the Pro Mods! Thanks NHRA!
