I preferred, no..I was and am actually interested in the old NASCAR racing, where the manufacturers had a part to play in trying to build a better car and powerplant to give them an edge over others. I totally understand that the cars now all having to fit within a profile and whatever other "homogeneous" rules they may have to make it a more level playing field from a mechanical and aerodynamic perspective could be viewed as placing more of the focus on the driver and their team.As I understand it, the hemi used to be competitive because they made more power above ten grand. So, of course, nhra mandates a ten grand rev limit, by rule alone making hemis uncompetitive. Sound familiar?
I guess they got what they wanted, a personality-driven pro-camaro class, minus any hint of manufacturers rivalry. Copying nascar much?
Most is the complete opposite,Didn't NHRA recently get rid of the manufacturer rule? Now you can run whatever motor you want in whatever body you are running. So now most of the Camaro guys are already running Hemis.
You nailed the spelling.sadly MoPar's now lone wolf
Alan Prusienski (spelling) isn't very competitive in P/S
may qualify in the bottom half of the order,
usually 12th or worse, has to ran a faster car in 1st rd
he's also knocked out 1st round, most the time
in most recent races in the past anyway
unless he founds something, life changing
or is cheating ?
Pro-Stock NHRA it's the Pro-Camaro Class
"all Cheby" pretty much anymore
has been that way for several years now,
since MoPar's P/S Roy & Allen Johnson retired
I'm sure NHRA rules changes & age, were both factors too
there was scuttlebutt, (rumors) end of last season
& they did have a Wally for a experimental class, last season
that they were going to allow mountain motor (bigger than 500cid) P/S's
to compete with a weight penalty, to help fill fields,
have some new much needed blood
& some new competition/builders sponsors etc.
especially with only 13-14-15 (less than 16, almost always) cars
& only less races too, down to 18 races
before the Chinese Wuhan Flu BS happened
never heard anymore about it
No but there have been the GM motors in other makes. No one has run a Hemi recently.Didn't NHRA recently get rid of the manufacturer rule? Now you can run whatever motor you want in whatever body you are running. So now most of the Camaro guys are already running Hemis.
