its all nothing more than the bowtie playground anymore.the mopars and ferds will be obsolete and in the smithsonian.the fun police {nhra} is probably contemplating doing what they do best,killing a class with zero regard for anybody thats been involved in it physically,emotionally and most of all financially.its their game and their going to take their wagon and go home.until racers run that so called organization, or in real life disorganization, once again nothing good will ever happen to the racers who play in their back yards.....

It's more cost effective to develop parts for 14 (or more) cars than 2. They all play by the same rules.

I honestly can't believe Mopar stayed in this long.

The only class/s I love watching and following that have no TV coverage are the F.A.S.T and Pure Stock guys. At least there is brand loyalty and brand engines and brand chassis/bodies dueling it out to the finish heads up.
Chevrolet bean counters can have their carbon fiber bean mobiles and see how fast and old they get with each other.

Since I set the DVR to record the NHRA show and usually end up with 50% of the recording being anything BUT drag racing.... I've all but given up watching entirely.

What's funny is that AJ is number three in points right now and will finish in the top five yet mopar is willing to drop there best guy if these rumors are true.

Elite starting a mopar engine program from scratch is risky for mopar because it's simply not that easy(remember Jeg) but who knows, these are just rumors.

Yep, me too.

It seems FIAT wants little to do with "traditional" hot rods and I'm sure in their eyes there is little if any, ROI with NHRA. Will they cease sponsoring the Denver race if this is true?

Lets face it Pro-Stock racing is not relevant to selling cars! NHRA started to see the light with next years changes but as usual too late! I think if they had production based engines in a stock looking full chassis car there would be interest from more manufactures. Current production engines for many manufactures are eclipsing 700+ HP - Make that the basis for very loose new rule platform and you might have a factory war back in pro-stock. Quite frankly pro-stock is boring and not relevant to the fan - they cant go buy a car with a 500 CI specialty built engine stuffed into a plastic chassis car. Put a heavily massaged hellcat engine into a light weight chassis car that still resembles a Challenger and you have something a fan and manufacture can support. The rules can come as it evolves - like it used to be - makes it more interesting!

If I'm not mistaken Elite's engine builder was Jegs guy when he went on his own with the hemi stuff.


One day I will have something cool here.

They could do away with Pro Stock in it's present form and go back to the old days. Current production "door slammer" foot brake with only factory type electronics. Bring back the race on Sunday sell on Monday attitude.

IT WOULD BE FUN AND ENTERTAINING!!!! NOT BORING AND HO HUM!!! WHO CARES???
