Sounds like it's on the way to be the "Back East Nationals"

Jeff, I've made at least two proposals to have a Class type Nationals out here @Speedworld
I got ZERO responses both times....

Thumbs up Re: Class Nationals event planning

This sounds like a winner to me.
Now; I am the Rep. for B.I.R. It's location is not as good for getting the car count we need.

Tri-State Raceway IN Earlville Iowa Is "a winner" with all the racers in the area.
It is also very well received by any visiting from far away.

An excellent track with well respected owners who are responsive to "our type"
of drag racing.

To put it in a nut shell....
"They get it!"
Please consider this fine facility for this race.
As always I'll help with it any way I can!
It is up to us to keep our sport alive!

Speedworld is too far west. Keep it somewhat central.

Just curious because I haven't seen any reference to it yet in this thread, but will IHRA cars be allowed ?

I don't think there could be a better place than Bowling Green. I am, of course, biased because it's close to me, but if a place can get 60+ cars for a combo race on a regular basis, a Class Nationals type race would likely have full fields.

I saw quite a few people have suggested Earlville. We went there for the first time this year, it's a very nice place, and fast!

Wouldn't that greatly complicate class eliminations? Differences in rules being another sticky point...advocates should probably PM Michael on their ideas to make it feasible.

The original US Class Nationals allowed ALL cars, NHRA and IHRA, that were legal S/SS cars. That's the only way to do it. For concerns in Class Eliminations situtations, if a car can fit both sanctioning bodies, use the NHRA class and horsepower. Use the NHRA/IHRA-only rules, for cars that only fit one (Pure Stock, Stock/GT, Crate Motor, etc).

Making a race like this (or ANY combo race) an NHRA-only event is near-sightedness at best, and assinine at worst.

I don't think there are any rule differences in regular stock anymore are there? I think IHRA allowed roller rockers first, but NHRA does now.

In my opinion, IHRA cars should be allowed. If it fits an NHRA class, it runs the NHRA class at the NHRA HP rating (FI classes, etc.) and if not, the IHRA class is used.
