Pro Stocks
Dunno if I should say this, but photos 4 and 6 are not Pro Stock cars, #4 is Tony Christian, think he was running D/A at that point, later went on to fame in fast street car racing with a '57 chevy, and #6 are MP cars, the far lane looks to be the Checkmate D/MP car, and the car in the near lane is a Super Modified
Most of us on here are grown Men. ;)
Im still trying to get used to that, its a nice change! :) It got to the point where I wouldn't even share info on another forum I could name, got sick of getting shit on for being a "know it all". Its nice not to have to have all conversations by pm. :)
Don't let unimportant people bother you.My family & friends mean the world to me.

Very good point. I always tell my kid "what other people think of me is none of my business".

That is what makes this a special site........knowledge is appreciated and history is not tainted by those who never saw it  ;D

Yes some of us find the odd mis-information on the cyber highway,  but we all seem willing to learn from others as better information is found.........

thanks to all who stand together to make this an exceptional site!

 So, the OEM people have more or less washed their hands of NHRA Pro Stock and are turning their focus to Factory Stock. At the request of the current Pro Stock racers starting in 2018 NHRA is going to allow any approved engine in any approved body. The choice will obviously be Chevy as that engine has won the championship every year since 2012. In return for keeping Pro Stock at every race the racers have guarantied 16 cars at every race. I hope I am not the only one who miss' the good old days of Vegas, Pintos and Darts.  Jim

Looking back to July I said Pro Stock would be gone for 2018 and that is pretty much true. The new class should be PS/FC. Just like Funny Car class, one engine any body. Whatever, I’m basically a fuel snob so it makes no difference.
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.
