NHRA PRO STOCK bullshit


The National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) announced Saturday that
the Pro Stock class will have new rules to “increase spectator appeal,
make the class more relevant from a technology standpoint, and to
enhance the overall pit experience for fans of the 200-mph factory hot
rod class.”


Changes include backing the vehicles into the
pit area so spectators can see the uncovered engines and interact with
the crew and drivers, elimination of the Pro Stock style hood scoop,
using electronic fuel injection instead of carburetors, and, in a move
to make the cars more fun to watch, “reduce the length of the wheelie
bars to a length specified by the NHRA Tech Department…increasing the
unpredictability of the class through more “wheels up” launches from the
starting line.” The vehicles will also have 10,500 rpm rev limiters and
windshield banners with the make of the vehicle printed on them. These
changes will take effect on Jan. 1, 2016.



After a new television deal was announced, the NHRA also stated
that it, “will work with new television partner FOX Sports to improve
coverage and maximize exposure of the Pro Stock category through
increased driver and team profiles and technical features, in addition
to expanded on-track racing coverage.”


“Pro Stock racing has a tremendous history with NHRA and proves
each weekend by the close side-by-side finishes that it is one of the
most competitive forms of racing in all of motorsports,” said Peter
Clifford, NHRA president. “Through these changes we hope to provide a
platform so the Pro Stock class can evolve from a technological
standpoint, yet reconnect with its roots by generating more interest and
appeal among spectators.”
