After experimenting with the concept for the first time last season — NHRA will present expanded Mountain Motor Pro Stock racing in 2019…

NHRA officials announced that Mountain Motor Pro Stock cars will compete in exhibitions at four national events during the 2019 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season. The exciting category, which has for may years been a favourite category within alternative sanctioning, will be featured at the following NHRA events this coming season.
  • NHRA SpringNationals. Houston (8-car field) – April 12-14
  • NGK Spark Plugs NHRA Four-Wide Nationals, Charlotte, N.C. (16-car field) – April 26-28
  • NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals, Bristol, Tenn. (8-car field) – June 14-16
  • NHRA New England Nationals, Epping, N.H. (8-car field) – July 5-7
With dynamic paint schemes, throwback hood scoops and wheel stands that go on for the first 100 feet of a launch, Mountain Motor Pro Stock cars bring maximum entertainment value when they hit the track. After showcasing Mountain Motor Pro Stock at the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals, it was clear that the category provided an exciting show that left fans wanting more.
“We are looking forward to seeing the Mountain Motor Pro Stock category more in 2019,” said NHRA vice president of competition, Ned Walliser. “These drivers are eager to run at NHRA national events and offer an exciting new showcase for fans.”
NHRA had previously revealed (*last November) it’s 2019 season schedule for it’s traditional 500 CID Pro Stock eliminator, which remains part of the NHRA’s Mello Yello Drag Racing Series and which will see competition at 18 of 24 season events this year.  That number of races was determined to be somewhat of a “sweet spot” for class competitors and was thus scheduled as such.
