Homemade dragster

Im not sure if this form belongs in this section but I couldnt see a section with anymore relevance so well give this one a try.

My question is directed towards builders and /or racers of homemade rear engine dragsters. Im doing pre-build research and if anyone has any info that will make my life easyer Id really appreciate the input. I have access to small blocks, trannys, rear ends, welders, and lots of tools and finally a good enough job to make this happen. Got plans but nothing set in stone yet but i need to know what kinda NHRA rules i need to be aware of for a open bodied 14 foot dragster that will prolly run 12's maybe high 11's

Thanks Guys

First thing to do is join the NHRA and you will recieve the rule book. Being an open body car, dragster rules get pretty involved regardless of how fast or slow it is.
