While checking out some of the race results around the country, I noticed something interesting about the last NMCA race. The format for racing in this organization is primarily heads up in a variety of classes with different chassis, tire, and engine rules. They have three bracket style eliminators but the rest of the classes are heads up fast car wins. Not too long ago it was pretty much a GM show with an occasional Mopar. Look at the results from the last race this spring in Georgia.
Class, Driver, Car
Pro Street, Pat Musi, 2000 Firebird
Pro Outlaw, Chuck Samuel, 2001 Mustang
Pro Nostalgia, John Jones, 1966 Fairlane
Nostalgia Pro Street, Brian Ferrari, 1966 Chevelle
Super Street, Dan Millen, 2002 Mustang
Super Modified, Jim Huber, 2000 S-10
Limited Street, Gary Rohe, 1980 Mustang
Hot street, Rick Moroso, 2000 Corvette
Real Street, Jamie Stanton, 2002 Camaro
Drag Radial, Tony Pirez, 1970 Nova
These are all heads up classes. It looks to me like the Ford contingent is doing pretty well in the horsepower department these days. Another Mustang won one of the three breakout classes.
