Default Re: IHRA Ends Stock & Super Stock Racing

The IHRA going to a bracket race format may indeed increase car count for their events. Here is my thought. There are probably quite a few cars out there, that are good cars but, cannot run on or near 1 second under their respective index. I would think there a lot of guys that don't show up to an event that has class eliminations because they know they don't have a chance to make it past the first round running a heads up race. I think a lot of those racers pick and choose the events they have a chance of winning.

Also, todays Stockers are very sophisticated and cost a bundle of $$ to build and maintain on top of expensive entry fees. Some guys won't go to an event they don't have a chance of winning.

I can remember at the old Detroit Dragway in the 60's, the majority of class cars were daily drivers with the exception of some bolt on modifications and a set of slicks. They would have a huge car turn out.
Maybe a bracket racing format will level the playing field.

Time will tell.

For guys like me coming from MI it is a nice opportunity as many events are close and my daughters G/PS Mustang GT stick is not in need of an update to a full NHRA stocker yet. And as she is 16, she is just getting a start and a PS car was a perfect fit, glad it is still usable as is.

GLSSA will welcome your IHRA cars still also as they too were happy to reply and keep IHRA cars alive.

Thank you NMCA and GLSSA!
Hey Mark
Send a picture of your G/PS Mustang.
If you have a picture of all of you send that along too.
Will post in the Photo Gallery.
