NHRA New England Nationals Action Photos: Gear Jamming Pro Stockers On The Strip At Epping

(Photos by Wes Allison) –¬†This coming weekend the NHRA heads for one of the largest tracks on the entire tour. Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports Park. This cavernous place in Ohio is quite the opposite of little New England Dragway in Epping, New Hampshire where the NHRA Camping World drag racing series last competed. The pro stock action at Epping was great with the youth of the class hitting center stage where eventual winner Aaron Stanfield had to defeat the likes of young Mason McGaha and others.

While the young guys are battling, the old guard is still very strong. Greg Anderson continues to have a brutally fast race car and continues to come up just shy in his quest for a 97th victory, a win that would time him as the all-time leader in pro stock with Warren Johnson. Anderson has been a brutally quick qualifier at all but one race this year and he has had the car to beat, arguably, on every Sunday of the season thus far. With HendrickCars.com backing all season, he is seeking to reset the bar for execellence in pro stock.

    Not sure how to get excited about a class that is all one make and model…that looks nothing like the production car (stickers don’t count). It’s spec racing…they forgot their roots. This is why the South East Gassers and Drag Week style events are so popular. They are relate-able.

    Take the NHRA off life support and let them fend for themselves.
    No signs of brain activity.

    I love drag racing of all types and I watch every NHRA race but I will admit that pro stock is boring. It’s when I make the trip to the fridge. I recently watched some old videos of early and mid 90’s national events, man they were so much more entertaining than today’s pro stock. Pontiacs, Oldsmobiles, Chevys, Dodges, Fords. Now it’s all Camaros ( a couple of Mustangs occasionally). The cars are ugly and there is little resemblance to a real car. At least back then the cars had factory quarters and roof skins and had to meet the template.

      Ditto for me! Pro-Stock was my favourite class in the NHRA circuit, but now all the GM cars look like Jelly Beans and in no way represent the car available in the dealer showrooms, This is now a one make class and should be restricted to Super Chevy Sunday events. I’ve gone back to Super Stock with a vengeance where I can see real racing amongst a myriad of manufacturers.
