Default Epping Nationals to have 603 Diesel trucks?

Just read that NHRA and New England Dragway is inviting 603 Diesels to have a truck shootout to "enhance" the spectator experience, not sure about anyone else who is struggling to get higher car counts and gradepoints and working their asses off like we are and paying out the *** to enter a National Event, but in my opinion this is just stupid. What is their entry fee, or how did they get "waived" gradepoint entry, or what happens when they oil the track will they get the $250 dollar fine also?

Just remember that it is NHRA's show. I guess they are trying to WHATEVER it takes to put people in the stands.

It is positively NOT the good old days when it was about the racer. Just my opinion, others may vary.

They put plenty of people in the seats, last year they bragged about how it was a sold out show. Without 8 stupid diesel trucks or the 8 outlaw cars they said we needed last year, but hey let’s run class for stock and super stock but only allow 60 cars in! Sounds like one hell of a class competition to me, might as well call it a combo class shootout.

no problem when they run out of time as usual , they will just hand out plaques to the highest qualified cars . it has become such a circus it just isn't worth racing nationals anymore. parking at NED. is limited as is. just wait till you have to park in the gravel at the end of the track because the pits are full of circus tents. i think i'll just keep my 400+ bucks.

Easy solution. Don't run at National Events.

Six hundred three, or are they "diesel outlaws from the 603" ?
