These cars are all held to the standards of the late 1960s NHRA rule book and are not allowed to have any modern performance stuff on them. From the intakes to the ignitions and the chassis technology, these cars are the way they were 50+ years ago. No exceptions are made, no quarter is given.
Quain Stott runs this deal and he runs a tight ship. Axalta has come on board as a major sponsor of the series in 2018 and they have a packed schedule that is concentrated on running their own entertaining and historic brand of eighth mile racing at tracks across the eastern United States.
You don’t have to love gassers to love this group. You just need to love history, fun, talent, skill, and the pride of knowing that you’re doing it the way the greatest names in drag racing history did it before you!
