Mountain Motor Pro Stock Exhibition Set For NHRA U.S. Nationals

The National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) confirmed this week it’s planned Mountain Motor Pro Stock exhibition to take place at this weekend’s prestigious Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis. In its official statement, series staff made transparent its utilization of the exhibition as a means of monitoring the performance of the 800-plus cubic-inch machines for potential inclusion in its Pro Stock eliminator in the future. Eight drivers will take part in the exhibition that, in a departure from its other regional exhibitions the last two seasons, will be run over the course of two days, providing increased visibility to the NHRA fanbase.

For the first time, Mountain Motor Pro Stock cars will be making an appearance at an NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series event as part of the 64th annual Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals. Mountain motor drivers from around the country will descend on Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis to showcase their machines at the World’s Biggest Drag Race™ with two runs on Saturday, Sept.  1 and two more on Sunday, Sept. 2

There’s been some interest in incorporating these cars into our current Pro Stock field. In order to determine if that’s even a possibility, we need to see these machines perform under the same conditions as our Pro Stock category. – Ned Walliser, NHRA

This unique category boasting 800-plus cubic inch engines will bring a new level of entertainment to an already action-packed event.  Drivers expected to participate in the exhibition include John Montecalvo, Trevor Eman, John Konigshofer, Brad Waddle, Dwayne Rice, John DeFlorian, Elijah Morton and Dillon Voss.

“We are looking forward to seeing the Mountain Motor Pro Stock class run at an NHRA national event,” said NHRA vice president of competition, Ned Walliser. “There’s been some interest in incorporating these cars into our current Pro Stock field. In order to determine if that’s even a possibility, we need to see these machines perform under the same conditions as our Pro Stock category.”
