    Don’t worry, NHRA is trying something different with their event coverage. For the first time, FOX Sports 1 (FS1) will feature one hour of exclusive Pro Stock coverage on Tuesday, February 26, beginning at 9 p.m. Eastern Time.

      The main reason I would go to the Winternationals was pro stock. Glidden, Johnson, Morrison, etc. now its lump vs. lump spec racing, couldn’t pay me to watch it. Funny car as well, no different bodies, all look the same who cares? Dale Pulde was one of my favorites back in the day, also Billy Meyer.
