Any Pro Stock testing updates?

Anybody heard anything new about any Nhra Ford Pro Stock Testing. I haven't heard anything about Erica at all. Isn't there some sort of race before Pomona that most of the Pro Stocks go to before Pomona coming up?

Haven't heard anything yet. There is the Pro Stock shootout during pre-season testing in Vegas before Pomona. Not sure on the actual date though.

I'm excited about it also. it's about time. Do you think it will take a season or so to really line it out or will they have it 100% from the git-go?

The shootout in Vegas is superbowl weekend. I hear a few of the teams will be testing in Bradenton FL this weekend.

I think that it will probably next year or maybe a little longer before there really competitive. Pro Stock is probably the TOUGHEST class in all racing. I'm very optimistic though with what Erica did in the fall, she got better each pass & that was without any testing! The old motor basically was what ever it unloaded at! I think that the first challenge will be getting qualified & then going rounds & then winning races! Look how long it took Ford to get the Funny car motor in the winners circle? I'm not being a pesimist here, just realistic. But I'll finally be able to set down again & watch a race that I TRULY have something to root for if you know what I mean? Pro Stock to me is the ONLY class to watch, but I've had a hard time watching it without a Ford in it. I could truly care less for the last couple of years & if I had something else to do I went & did it. Now I'll be in front of the TV for every race! This was a VERY smart move by Ford!

I'm with you on the watching thing David, I have not watched racing on tv for years! I like Force, but it's not really a true Ford to me. I'm excited for the next year.

I hear Justin Humpherys is going to run a Ford this year too. And Roush/Yates is building his engines. Should be pretty cool to see Jack back in Drag racing.

Smile morgan's time compared to the quickest last year???

if morgan did in fact run a 6.65 @ 208 how does it compare to some of the best times from last season? i must say being a long time FORD fan i am excited about the up coming season. hopefully we (FORD FANS) can find info on testing times and who ran what where.

I wander if that's NHRA legal? The reason I say that is because when I worked in NASCAR we would test things during the winter that wouldn't pass TECH & we would always be faster in testing than actual race trim.

Talked to my buddy today who works for KB and is Jason Lines dyno partner. Their new car on its second pass ever went [email protected] He said it will go 212 tomorrow a.m. Mike Edwards national record from last year was a 6.50. Man, I hope the Fords can get there!
