    • NEW GASSER ELIM. ll vehicles must meet NHRA tech to run.
      Looking For Traditional GASSERS that
      closely resemble the outward appearance of the gas cars that competed from the 50s through the early 70s. Anything that makes a competitor’s car appear like a “bracket car”, will not be allowed;
      Pre-1968 Bodys
      No wings, front spoilers or other aero enhancements
      No modern hood scoops, no modern paint schemesNo Pro-Mod, Outlaw, or full tube-frame cars.
      …..We’d like to see vintage style or stock wheels here, but modern wheels won’t get you tossed.
      Fiberglass bodies allowed.Chopped tops allowed.
      Wheelie bars allowed.

      Suspesnsion:
      We prefer nose-high, and straight axles. SHOULD have a traditional gasser stance—nose-high, baby!
      HOWEVER, we know a lot of cars that ran in the gasser classes in the ‘60s used stock front suspensions, or were even lowered in the nose. So we do not have any rules regarding front end height or front suspension.

      Engine
      No nitrous
      No turbo
      No electronic fuel injection.
      No electronic delay boxes, light timers, throttle controls or anything of that nature.
      MSD-type or other electronic ignition allowed.
      Single distributor or magneto systems only.

      Rev-limiter allowed, but for engine protection only; may not be used on launch

      Cast aluminum or iron intakes only. No sheet metal intakes.

      Vintage-style U-Fab tube intakes allowed
      Aftermarket heads and blocks allowed.

      GMC/Roots-type, 8:71 max displacement. Original 1950s McCollouch, Judson, etc. other brands allowed. No modern Paxton or Vortec

      Any transmission allowed
      Trans brake allowed, but no 2-step or other rev limiter allowed on launch.
      No “extenders” mounted below bumper to trip the lights
      Wheelie bars allowed.

      You Won’t get Bounced for “minor” stuff
