Nostalgia Super Stock Drag Racing

Can someone help me out with Finding Info about the History of Super Stock drag racing? How it started, how or why it evolved into Pro Stock in the early 70's. What Super Stock really was. Can you list a cited source as well please.

This book, Super Stock: Drag Racing the Family Sedan, might help you out.

Or this,Maximum Performance: Mopar Super Stock Drag Racing 1962-1969

Super stock didnt evolve into Pro Stock...both classes still exist

Like NASCAR, the stock classes got a bit out of hand, so the Pro Stock class was added

Some history here from DragRacingOnline, "Pro Stock The Beginning".

We may have some class terminology discrepancies here.
