Pro stock today? Cars that do not resemble anything on the road is just pro mod/funny car to me ......

Will it fix the underlying issues with Pro Stock? Hard to say at this point but I think most would agree that doing nothing isn't an option.

Also, my personal opinion is that the sky is the limit for Factory Stock racing but I think it's important to manage the growth so it doesn't get completely out of hand. I think the current (2018) format shows a lot of promise with 7 events and stand alone eliminations.

My 2cents
If Ford and Chrysler sat in on this, then it tells me they left their satisfied that there will be something else, eventually.

You can only recharge a dead battery so many times before you replace it.

I could post some snide remark about this topic, just going to say I've lost interest in Pro Stock for a while now so I don't care what happens with the class

Chevy engines for 2018, Dodge engines in 2019 and Ford engines in 2020. Problem solved.

Can't imagine why Mopar would have bought into this given all the bad mouthing of them by the Elite team when they ran Darts. Everyone knows the 10,500 RPM limit killed the Hemi. If they did then Detroit Bob may be on point in that Mopar was 'offered' some enticement beyond 2018, perhaps some tweaks in the FS rules.

I don't think factory stock will be quite as popular now that the slow cars can't jump back into the stock eliminator program. Time will tell on that as well. That's a big dollar class now.

I've been a Pro Stock fan since the beginning. Dyno Don, Gapp & Roush and Bob Glidden gave me someone to cheer for being a Ford guy. Hoping Charlie Wescott could bring Ford back but since no Fords I cheered for the Mopars. With Allen Johnson pulling the plug I guess I'm done.
