The NMCA’s brand of Extreme Pro Mod class racing concludes its season at Indianapolis….

Twenty-two cars attempted to qualify for the final VP Racing Fuels Xtreme Pro Mod field of the season held during the NMCA’s 18th Annual World Finals event (presented by Chevrolet Performance) and hosted at Lucas Oil Raceway Indianapolis.

With the season championship title already being clinched by Michigan’s Don Walsh Jr. racing in the 1/8th mile class was still filled with drama – and did produce a first time circuit winner.

Unhearled Stephan Stringer scored his first career win at the final NMCA event of 2019.

Qualifying proved to be a show in itself with that top spot changing after every round.

John Stanley put his blown 2014 Cadillac CTSV above all else with a 3.725 secs for the pole, and the entire field was separated by less than a tenth of a second making it the quickest field since the inception of the Xtreme Pro Mod format.

Stanley however struck the tires in round one, opening the door fo #16 qualifier Stephan Stringer to advance. Stringer, racing his supercharged ’68 Camaro from Kentucky, then promptly upset Jeff Rudolf and Craig Sullivan to make the final round.

In the money round — Stringer drilled the tree and took the holeshot win with a 3.809 at 196.27 mph to best Jim Widener’s nitrous-backfiring Corvette which ran 3.787 secs at 169.49 mph.
