Default IHRA Super Stock Modified

Was there ever any IHRA super stock modified class where a Brodix Cylinder head was acceptable?

Thanks
Tim

Not too very long ago, everyone was on the IHRA bandwagon. Sportsman friendly, 2 races in one weekend (due to low car counts). Now there is, virtually, no sportsman racing. I wonder what happened?

I tried to support them around here. Very low car counts due to like "going back in time", track prep was very poor-to-none. My car didn't care, had a set up for NHRA, one for IHRA. My IHRA hp was lower, so I could run lighter. Indexes were slower too. Second and a half under was no problem.

The IHRA tracks around here were mostly small, rural tracks many of us had not heard of. Small dirt pits, etc. Pay outs were very low. I also quit going after checks started bouncing.

They mostly drew local bracket racers anyway. May have been different in other areas.

I liked racing IHRA in Stock eliminator. They had good payouts but the entries were not very big. The Tech guys treated everyone good.

Not exactly the original topic but. I never raced but have always helped my brother with his Super Stock cars. He started with IHRA in the early 80 with 2 production SS wagons, then switched to NHRA SS/GT cars. He ran the "flat hood" car in IHRA for a season or two and started running NHRA when IHRA was beginning to dry up. Under Larry Carrier IHRA was pretty strong in the south. Bristol, Darlington, and Rockingham were always packed for the national events. Many of the IHRA points races were held at small out dated tracks but the racing was always good and you were made to feel welcomed. I have no early experience with NHRA for comparison, but IMHO with NHRA being the only game in town the sportsman racers options are limited and NHRA knows this and don't care. If you don't believe me just go through tech and teardown your first time at Indy and get treated like a russian spy. Even before IHRA was sinking they welcomed and appreciated racers. NHRA now at the national event level would IMHO be happy to only have 12 cars in each sportsman class to fill in betwen the pro's. I have watched the trends of Nascar, and drag racing for the past 30 years.Take a look at the empty seats. Is it lack of interest or is it $$$ driven and the price too much for a family of four? I love class racing and hope it is around for years to come. Sportsman racers are what built NHRA and I hope they don't forget it. Just my $.02, Don Jackson

As I recall, IHRA didn't have a class that was called Super Stock Modified, but they had the Hot Rod classes which were somewhat like NHRA's Super Stock Modified classes. NHRA SS/M classes and IHRA Hot Rod classes were somewhat based on the old NHRA Modified Production class.
