I understand this is the CHEVROLET US Nationals, but if Mopar doesn't put up the $, looks like some work to do to find someone that will. Jegs ,Me3 (lol) or ????

But yes, special announcing, special run schedule, A very good advertising value for the $ imho. Just appears NHRA needs there cut for that to happen...

To whom it may concern, The Mopar Hemi Challenge program that has run in conjunction with the US Nationals will NOT take place in 2018. Please discontinue all deliverables and promotions of the Mopar Hemi Challenge program including using the Mopar Hemi Challenge logo entirely. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you, Gary Raasch NHRA Sr. Director of Corporate Marketing and Partnerships 2035 Financial Way Glendora, CA 91741 626-250-2211 office 626-688-9172 cell graasch@nhra.com


This was floating around in the cloud so I called Glendora. There is a Gary Raash which I left a voicemail. SO I went to my source and friend Eric Lotz who said it was cancelled for 2018 BUT talks are back on to do it. Stay tuned was his quote. If you want to see it happen, emails and letters to Mopar and NHRA.

I really hope they get it back in the program, especially this year being the 50th anniversary of the Hemi cars.

Dam. Shame. Bean counters. Running out of beans?
I hope you Hemi guys get together like they do in A/S.
Do your own thing if possible or do it someplace else

I was wondering if something would change when Dale retired, without the Hemi Challenge it is just another race, LOL. I only go for the Challenge, might not make it this year if you guys aren't there. Please let us know who we contact at NHRA!

I sent my request to Gary Raasch using the email address shown earlier. If enough members do likewise they hopefully will acknowledge our concerns.

Looks like they're slowly dismantling drag racing as we've known it. It will probably degenerate into the way the collector car market has gone, rich guys with money to burn.
