Default NHRA vs. NMCA/ NMRA

Now that the NHRA Div. schedule is out, have you looked at the dates compared to these sanctioning bodies. It would help increase car counts if something could be done to offset the dates, especially with stock and superstock cars and Top Sportsman.
Norwalk NHRA Div.3 race same as Bowling Green NMCA
Bowling Green NHRA Div.3 vs. Norwalk NMCA
Gateway National vs. Indy NMCA

The Bradenton race is the same weekend as the Gainesville pints race. Same as last year. I would go if it was a different weekend. With proper scheduling they could have gotten a good car count.

I keep telling them this and they don't listen. They claim to want input but that doesn't seem to matter. Shades of NHRA? Jim

Since we live in Bradenton, I had hoped we could race the NMCA here but I guess not, we'll be in Gainesville.

Cool Re: NHRA vs. NMCA/ NMRA

Since I live in Bradenton, and the NMCA Race is the same weekend as the Gainesville NHRA points meet, I'll be racing in Bradenton. I'll save 6 hours of towing, three days in a motel, sleep in our own bed every night. Enjoy the traditionally better weekend weather. Race for more prize money, with less entry fees. Plus ... it'll be fun to kick all my IHRA buddies butts in 2018. Looking forward to a great car count ! - Bring it - It's all about choices.

I hear the NMCA is a great group, maybe one season we'll run all their races.

Too bad NMCA doesn't have races close to Texas. Bowling Green is the closest race I saw for NSS/NMC. It looks like an East Coast sanctioning body.

They have classes other than Stock/SS. Why should they switch their whole schedule in the hopes of getting a few more cars?
