This class is going to be cool as hell!

Just what I was thinking. Let's see who jumps on the bandwagon and just let's her rip. I am excited for this new class.

I didn't look at the rulebook amendments - what is the index??

Future Pro Stockers, possibly even replacing FS if enough people make the changeover and take advantage of a bigger tire. If they phase out PS NHRA will probably keep it a “sportsman” class since the purse will no doubt shrink accordingly. Maybe they won’t muck it up with pulley changes for the sake of parity.

I did some checking. Looks like it will be an exhibition class at first.

If it becomes a real class, I HOPE NHRA doesn't mess with it and let it stay all 3 brands (Ford, Chevy and Mopar). Otherwise it will be no better than Pro Stock is now, and Factory Stock. Just my 2 cents.....

I didn’t see where these cars are going to run in Comp Elim.

Or am I missing something ??

I read the description of the class. It reads very intricate and expensive to build.

Let's all pray that the NHRA doesn't screw this up like they have done to the Factory Stock Showdown and, to a somewhat lesser degree, Pro Mod. This has the potential to be absolutely great!
