  • a21stud wrote: » Yep. There is little to zero Pro Stock ROI. NHRA is fully in the entertainment business with FSS, Pro Mod, T/F Harley, Gassers, the Ally classes and small tire racers all very happy to replace Pro Stock. NHRA won't care when the…

  • a21stud wrote: » AH... But you've hit the real issue from the racer's standpoint. There isn't and won't be anything new in it for the racer. As long as NHRA has other types of entertainment que'd up and ready to run, why would they ever increas…

  • This kind of stuff is flying around the internet cause nhra will not commit and lay out exactly what they are going to do. I hope I’m wrong but I see lots of doom and gloom for pro stock on this too. I’m just not feeling it. Let’s combine Sears a…

  • If they give us extra injectors or injector throttle bodies and scoop this is the route we are going. It will surpass carbs as the extra injectors give you the cooling affect carbs do. Think few other top teams feel the same.

  • Good video like the old videos with it. Pro stock is millionaires club like pro mod and everyone else racing is doing it on a welfare check.
