Default NHRA to allow any accepted engine/body combination in Pro St

https://www.nhra.com/news/2017/nhra-...pro-stock-2018

Chevy's in everything! I'm curious how the Manufactures feels about this?

If the manufacturers would support the teams it wouldn't be like this. Hell now Mopar can sponsor a Dart with a "GM" engine and the fans wouldn't know the difference.

I know if I were Ford or Chrysler, I wouldn't want word getting out that my car was powered by Chevrolet. Seems like a step in the wrong direction for the class to me, but I've been wrong before......plenty of times!

Looks like the class will end up being like the funny cars. All will run the same engine no matter what body. There is no part of the engines or chassis in a pro stock car that come from the factories. Same as the rest of the pro classes including Pro Mod. Maybe it will bring some diversity in the body styles again. time will tell

Remember when I told you all that Alan Johnson (T/F & FC) was going to be prepping my engines for Stock Eliminator. Well this is the beginning, first Pro Stock engines, soon it will filter down to Stock.

Can you see it now, KB motors, Gray motors, Elite motors. Lets allow Toyoto and Honda bodies with PS motors, why not.

Have you heard that Mercedes & BMW are interested in PS now. Another rumor going on is that Tesla is thinking about getting into PS with a driver less car.

Pro stock was done in 2017, nothing I mean nothing will bring it back short of a complete re-do.
Another thing NHRA, says they discussed this with the Manufacturers, I am sure that was with Chevrolet only, because no one else would come, knowing what they were proposing.
Different bodies, give me a break, the only bodies that will get massaged will be Chevies by the factory, for their cars. Everyone one else will be left behind, thus Camaro only class.

Current PS teams are just trying to boost the class by having fringe racers buy used Darts and then lease them motors. Stupid...but no more than Mustang and Camaro bodies on Funny cars being sponsored by the manufacturers. Geez
