Anyone here Follow heads up drag racing?

just curious if anyone here follows and of the drag racing circuits NMCA, NMRA, ORSCA. or the heads up outlaw racing. Me and a friend used to run a mustang in X-treme street in nmca, then we went to Outlaw Drag Radial. Real good friend of mine is an engine builder and we care currently getting one of his customers cars ready for the NMCA world finals in Memphis next month. We gonna be running Pro Street. Anyone here plannin on goin?

Re: Anyone here Follow heads up drag racing?

i was gonna try to make that but they changed a bunch of rules last minute so we didn't go. buddy of mine is Nick Owens. he won the Drag radial last year at WFC 10. That was a good event. WSC made a fit because many drag radial cars can run faster than a 7.49 at weight, and there is no SFI rule to go that fast. Have several friends who can run faster. Nicks' mustang, Madman And Co have a Trans Am that currently holds the record for the fastest Tq Arm car on Radials. 7.41 if ya ever get a chance to go to the World Finals in Orlando, def go. 3 days with 400 cars. just non stop drag racing. in outlaw drag radial last year there was 130 cars. just some sick and insane drag racing.

Re: Anyone here Follow heads up drag racing?

I think it funny. Heres the rules, you follow the rules and beat the times they have the rules set for. Throw a big fit about rules being broke. Let em race i mean come on. Idiots.
Definetly gonna have to check that out. Do you know when it is?

Re: Anyone here Follow heads up drag racing?

Orlando is in a couple weeks. Pro Street Heavy Street Outlaw 10.5 and Outlaw Drag radial are the classes. Now the next weekened after Orlando in Bradenton is a Drag Radial Championship race. i prefer the small tire stock suspension stuff, the pro street stuff is fast but it's amazing how fast them guys go on radials. some sick stuff, you really gotta have your **** together.

the SFI isn't really rules though. although most santioned tracks frown on it because of insurance. Orlando would let em run as fast as they want, only prob is the track conditions are not always the best for the radial cars. the problem has been around for a while and they haven't updated any SFI regs. right now the fastest is a 25.2 cert which allows you to go 7.50 and slower at 3400 lbs. but guys running radials classes with a big block and turbos the classses are makin em run at 3500+ lbs, and they can run low .40's. so something's gotta give, either less weight, or come out with a cert that will let em run faster. the joke is that drag radial is now a 7.50 index class. although not everyone can run that fast. only about 10 cars in the country that can run in the .40's and you gotta have a track on kill to hold it. most drag radial guys can run low 8's with no prob.

Re: Anyone here Follow heads up drag racing?

What i see happening is they will let them run faster. They would be smarter to drop the weight. But then that would make some people mad because they arent able to run everything they got.

Re: Anyone here Follow heads up drag racing?

I said that backwards. What i meant was i see them dropping weight. They would be smarter to let them faster. But them dropping weight, would piss some people off, for the fact of they cant cant open their motor up. It would still be down tuned.

25.1E Full Bodied Car Tube Chassis – 7.49 Seconds & Quicker; 2,800 lbs. Maximum 35.00
25.2 Full Bodied Car Tube Chassis – 7.49 Seconds & Quicker; 3,200 lbs. Maximum 35.00
25.4 Full Bodied Car Tube Chassis – 7.50 to 8.49 Seconds; 3,600 lbs. Maximum 35.00
25.5 Full Bodied Car Stock or Modified/OEM Floorpan and Firewall with OEM Frame or Uni-Body Construction – 7.50 to 8.49 Seconds; 3,600 lbs. Maximum 35.00


3200 lbs is the heaviest they can be. we used to be 3400lb. and have known several cars that have been as heavy as 3600 for the class. they tryin to slow em down with the weight. but they just keep gettin faster. i've seen combo's that would rival many pro mod motors in a drag radial or true 10.5 car.
