THE LATEST IN THE WORLD OF DIESEL POWER
You might’ve noticed that the NHRDA switched its Pro Street field to eighth-mile competition for the 2018 racing season. However, you might’ve missed an even bigger rule change: Pro Street trucks cannot run quicker than 5.0 seconds in the 660. With Pro Street trucks either in the 7s or on the verge of getting into the 7s, chassis certification issues and various safety concerns are beginning to come into play. Frankly, diesel performance is outpacing the chassis certification process. And until further research can be done on chassis certification, the NHRDA has opted to keep things safe by implementing what is hopefully only a one-year hiatus from quarter-mile action and a limit on how quick racers can go.
