Ken,

Please tell us the name of the "higher up" person at nhra?

Crate motor racing is great but comparing them to regular Stockers is the old apples and oranges thing. Crate motor racing does allow the budget racers to get out there and race with IHRA Stock racers, but like Chad said it would seriously reduce the value of about 2,000 nhra stockers in the country. I don't think any of us want to see that happen. It's as much about personal investment (time and money) as it is about racing.

Dick, it would be a lot easier to deal with your suggestions if you were still racing. Your history in the Sport is great but it is still history.

I do see one problem the NHRA racers would have with it, and I don't blame them.
Although this would not effect the majority of crate motor cars.
And that is; crate motor cars being allowed to run a 10.5" tire. Not a level playing field.

Brandon, White 88 Camaro C & D Crate motor
I live outside Lexington NC.

Bruce,, I can't

Dick,
GT Stock
They should run what ever HP NHRA has them at.
Crate motor can run the IHRA factor to start why not?

Bobby, 9 inch tires would be fine.
Most people run a 9 inch now.

Hey Ken, long time no see. Do miss the top stock days with you guys tho. I think NHRA should run Stock/ GT and ill be the first one in the gate. My engine is a true NHRA 73 cleveland engine, and does run good. For me it would be easier for NHRA to run S/GT verse spending 20 grand to build a new car. But i can always run super stock gt. As long as i play the ladder game i think i can miss the heads up runs. Email me sometime Ken, we need to catch up....BTW hows Lee and Big Mike doing?
