Not sure where or when you will be up and running but please don’t make us need a 3rd chassis cert to run your class. Between NHRA and IHRA I need another job

Nope, waste of time and money for the racer. I will accept Chassis Certs from any sanctioning body that is SFI recognized. They are all certified via a standardized safety program through the SFI anyway. Why make it a sanctioning body specific thing? Just just needs a cert for safety verification. If you need it done, I can do it, if you have one and its valid....lets go racing. Its just about making money and creating a monopoly if I do it another way at that point and not about the racing....think about the way NHRA operates. Its just the way they do business. AHRA is all about the Sportsman and member tracks. We all have a relationship that depends upon each other to succeed. Like a triad.

I sure hope ADRA wont enforce the unnecessary safety and licence requirements the other 2 do...

2 year seat belts
locking dip sticks
header tethers
engine pans


6.49 cut off for a comp license

who knows what bs will be required in 18/19'

what a racket.

10.90, 9.90 and 8.90

We even have classes in between.So to answer your question, YES! You are gonna have to lose the throttle stop and delay box to compete. Its all about skill on a level playing field. BTW, if you win the class and row your own gears with a 833, the payout is higher, like 2X higher. DIFFERENT, hope you will try it out!

Not a dumb question at all! Website will be up on 1 December, but I will save you some time. Hilo, HI and thats it so far. Gotta start somewhere. I'll let you know where we stand after PRI and keep looking at the Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts to see the most current and up to date changes.

One more thing, keep your eyes peeled on our Facebook because you will be very interested as a .90 racer to see whats going down in the very near future. No one has ever done this before, so I'm sure if you have been .90 racing from the beginning you will LOVE this.

Its AHRA, American Hot Rod Association and I agree 100% with you since I am a blue collar sportsman racer. The seat belt [censored] used to get me pissed to the roof when the car sits 6 months of the year but no one ever checks my daily's seatbelts after coming off the assembly line. Unfortunately some of this stuff is SFI requirement, which I cannot shuck but I am discussing it with them for change. I made the license requirements similar (so they are comparative and can transfer from sanction to sanction) but will take licenses from anyone as well as a current chassis cert. I'm not here to nickel and dime you to death, just to have some cost effective sportsman friendly Drag Racing that is fun as hell.

I'm not running a racket as you are proposing, I'm planning on running this on such a short budget for large handsome payouts and to make it affordable for everyone. I'm not even drawing a paycheck and all staff is volunteer so far. I'm retired Navy and receive a paycheck to make ends meet. Just want to fix whats wrong with sportsman racing. If you want to join and help out, thats fine. If you want to [censored] and not jump at the opportunity to fix what you dislike, don't join. We are in it to grease the squeaky wheel. If you want some leverage in the AHRA and Drag Racing overall, buy a stock and come to the annual stockholders meeting, we can fix a lot of stuff together. I like your opinion, its uniquely yours.

That is correct! Booth Number 6052 in Yellow Hall. Come by and see us so you can see what we are all about. I'm assuming you are a Nostalgia Super Stock Guy, hopefully you still have the stock wheel wells in the car. If so check out the GT Class on announcement December 1st. Its right up your alley!

Told you it was going to be different and I love NSS. Saw them for the first time in 1994 at US 41 Fastest Street Car Shootout. Best thing I ever saw at that point.

We will be by your booth at PRI to check this out.

Is the .90 stuff incentives for 4 speed only (as stated) or any number of forward gears so long as it is shifted manually and leaves with a clutch?

All manuals are welcomed under the same umbrella. Just wanted to eliminate the clutchless dudes. Must engage the gears and clutch manually each gear. To be fair, the higher number the gears the price should go up. If you were doing it on the tree.....hot damn, you might need a U-Haul for the payout, thats the most work and toughest time I can think of! I can't afford much more than the $10K proposed at this point or it would. We will see where it evolves. If no one wins, it will most likely roll over to another bounty in another time, place or dimension!

Your thoughts?
