    NHRA has been pro gm for a very long time. I fully agree with Holbrook. If the camaros were winning, nothing would be done. Fact!! NHRA is going down the crapper very quickly. Prime time to start a new series

  • I didn't see in the article what is changed to achieve "parity".

    Do they add weight or what?

  • The only time I've seen "parity" work was old school Pro Stock Motorcycle where Byron Hines would get weight added and he'd just go build a different manufacturer's bike and still dominate. By really showed it was the tuner, not the manufacturer.

  • NHRA by their own admission want to keep the cars slow, 7.90 to 8.00. Are they trying to keep these cars from taking over Pro Stock, trying to keep the SS/AH cars relevent, what gives? In the end they will all just leave for other associations that let them go as fast as they can go. By the taik about prize money, that won't be a factor in keeping them. Question will be "what do the manufacturers want to do?"

    What does it take to get the certification down to 7.0 or so? Or is that where a funny car cage is needed?

    At 3550lbs, they're never going to overtake Pro Stock, especially with a 9" tire.

    It will be very curious to see how the new Challenger competes with everyone. The LS is going to get left behind. Did they ever fix the head breaking issue or was the fix for that to slow them a bit?

    They've already got them.
