Drag Racing Classes

Classes? They still have classes? The drag strip in my area doesn't have any classes. It's all bracket racing. Whoever invented that crap ought to be shot. How can you call it racing if you're putting the brakes on before the finish line?

That's the way it is around here too.

Back in the early 70's running at a local track there was a bad roadster called Troublemaker that had a Ford truck inline 6 in it. It was supposed to have had two Boss heads spliced together for it. That thing would flat out run.

Classes determined by dividing cubic inches into car weight are still in use at the National events and some Division events. They are as follows:
Modified Stock
Modified Truck
Modified
Super Stock/MX
Gas Dragster
Econo Dragster
Nostalgia Dragster
Altered
Street Roadster
Altered Truck
Econo Altered
Super Modified
