Default 2017 NMCA S-3 Preliminary Rules Package

The following are the Preliminary Rules package for 2017 NMCA S3 Eliminator: If you have any suggest or ideas with this rules set please forward to NMCArules@promediapub.com

NMCA Stock/Super Stock Combo (S/SS)


Class Description
S/SS is a handicap brake out eliminator based off of all NHRA and IHRA Stock and Super Stock classes. With the exception of any current combination that is eligible to participate in NMCA Super Car eliminator will not be eligible to participate in S/SS Combo.

Qualifying Information, Ladder Type, & Tree
All run qualified field on a sportsman type ladder. The class will qualify based off of current posted indexes from NHRA and IHRA. Eliminations will be run on a 5 tenths full tree; 64 cars or less will be laddered first round, over 64 cars will be random paired first round and laddered second round based off of first round eliminations. All dial-ins must be under the currently posted indexes for all NHRA / IHRA Stock and Super Stock class combinations. All qualifiers in S/SS must have a valid elapsed time recorded to be placed into eliminator competition. During eliminations when identical class combinations are paired the dial-in for both competitors will be based off of the faster qualified car and bumped by 1 tenth of a second, brake out still in effect.

All rules and classification will be based off the current year NHRA and IHRA rules and classification guide with the exception of; Fuel Check and Weight will not be a technical requirement. All NHRA Safety rules will be in effect. No modifications, which alter the car from factory stock, are permitted unless they are specifically allowed in NHRA / IHRA rules, or as authorized by the NMCA rules committee. Competitors will be required to have a valid NMCA Membership and permanent number, number can be their current NHRA or IHRA number as long as it does not duplicate another competitors number, in those cases NMCA will issue a number as close as possible to one of the competitors current number.

A Valid state or government issued driver’s license beyond a learner/s permit level mandatory for cars running 10.00 or slower. A Valid NHRA competition license is mandatory for cars running 9.99 or quicker, at an NHRA Member Track. NHRA/IHRA competition license mandatory at an IHRA Member Track.
Note: It is ultimately the competitor’s responsibility to familiarize themselves with the NMCA class requirements as well as all NHRA safety requirements. The competitor agrees they bear the ultimate responsibility when it comes to safety and how it complies with the NMRA and NHRA rule books. The competitor also agrees that no one else other than the competitor is in the best position to know about how their particular race car has been constructed and how to safely operate it.

In order to be eligible for the NMCA official contingency program, all contingency sponsors’ decals must be easily visible and located on the outside of the vehicle on the rear quarter windows or rear window in a clear and organized fashion. Contingency decals may not be overlapped or modified. Other decals and sponsors may appear on bodywork, front end and on windows. Failure to do so can result in the driver forfeiting all claimed contingencies for that particular event. The NMCA does require all entries to run the following decals:
1. NMCA Windshield Banner: Decal needs to be located on the top of the windshield or just above the windshield located on the body.
2. NMCA Drag Racing Series: Decals (2) must be located on each side of vehicle. Either on the side windows or decals can be located on the body right beside the side windows.
