    So what exactly does the Pro Stock "Dart" have in common with the production Dart? Other than the name of course...

    It is funny that Pro Stock only allowed Dodge to run the Neon body style through 2003 as they had a rule stating that racers can only run a production built body that was available in a 2dr. model from the factory. And that it had to be no more than 5 years after the production of said models. This is why Dodge had to change bodies in 2003 since 1998 was the last year they produced a 2dr. Neon. Now I guess that rule is out hence 2014 Dart pro Stock!

    What do you mean by transition? After this year I'm going to see how things go and was debating trying to get my Nhra license. Just curious as to what kind of changes I might be facing.

    NHRA is trying to get people in the stands, that is the reason for the New Stock class: “Factory Stock” made up of cars from Stock AAA, AA, BB & CC classes.
    • Preliminary index – 9.70

    • Preliminary weights
    • 300-450 CID naturally aspirated – 3000 lbs.
    • 451+ CID naturally aspirated – 3475 lbs.
    • All supercharged – 3675 lbs.
    They all run off a 9.70 index heads up and above are the weight requirements.

    That is so true. A group of my friends and I have been going to the Gainsville Fl. Gatornationals for many many years. I have only missed one year since it's inception in 1970.
    But due to the fact most of us are retired and the fact that is so damn expensive, we have decided that this is going to be our last year. Yesterday we get a call from the campgrounds we have stayed at for years now has doubled it's rates this year! A top Eliminator ticket cost $360.00 dollars.
    So yes I agree lower the ticket cost= fill the stands!

    And what most people fail to realize , is that without the Sportsman classes, there would be no professional racing!

    It's already happened. Look at the profile of the Camaros, Mustangs, Avengers, Camrys and now the Darts. If it wasn't for the decals we wouldn't know who to root for.

    I enjoy all the pro fuel and door slammer classes but I like to go watch during qualifying when the real stock classes run at the end of the day.

    I grew up with it, so the fuel cars don't do anything for me either. I like to watch pro-stock.

    I can watch SuperStock and Stock all day! But I'm biased, as my Father did it for many, many years.

    Yup, I agree 100%. Fixing to go to the Gatornationals camping for 4 days been going every year since 1970, except one year I was sick. I spend all day Thursday and Friday at the track watching the sportsman classes. And I'll catch two rounds of Pro Stock qualifying, and enjoy camping Saturday and Sunday. I won't even go to the track.
