The end of Pro Stock

If this I true, Fords should find the winner's circle a lot.

Opens the door for change, and a better car count.

Ford, vs Chevy, vs Chrysler, pretty cool. Add in a couple import manufacturers and it could be a street fight.

Great!! Class has become awful!! Glad they're attempting to make the cars appear a little more "stock". Wish they would do the same to Funny Car. Hate the generic lump look.

Very good news fosho. As long as they keep the engines base from the production lines it should work and keep the costs down. Like everyone else stated,"its about time"

It sounds good in theory, but I can already see NHRA penalizing Ford combos the same way they did in the 70's.

As the world turns...I get more dizzy!

Our sources believe the NHRA will mandate a change from the current highly modified Pro Stock bodies to slightly modified from stock Mustang, Challenger, Camaro et al.
Gotta like the sound of that!

The NHRA had to do something. The Factory Showdown class is so much more popular then their Pro class.
