THE LAT­EST IN THE WORLD OF DIESEL POWER

Diesel World - - Contents -

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.
