Class racers compete against factory hot rods and traditional muscle cars. To classify them accurately, a system divides their shipping weight and horsepower ratings into categories.
This determines your car’s natural class, which in turn dictates minimum weights and tire size limits. Additionally, the National Hot Rod Association requires race seats with safety harnesses as well as additional safety features to comply with their rules.
Nostalgia Super Stock
Nostalgia Super Stock racing is one of the world’s fastest-growing classes, recreating 1960s-style Super Stock racing made famous by drivers such as Dick Landy and Judy Lilly in the 1960s. This class offers complete championship series racing at major Nostalgia events around the world.
This category’s rules have been designed to accurately portray cars that raced in Super Stock at its height of popularity while also accommodating an extensive array of engine configurations and body styles – making this category suitable for different kinds of muscle cars of various types to compete against one another in one class. Furthermore, Super Stock racing provides an ideal starting point for drag racing as its costs tend to remain relatively reasonable.
Nostalgia Super Stock events take place throughout the UK every year, including six separate championship events: three for the NMCA Lifestyle Championship and three for Motorsport UK; there are also freestanding events like Nitrous Streetcar Brawls at Santa Pod.
NSS competitors use a unique trans brake that caps their maximum car speed to approximately 260 MPH. This feature helps reduce overrun risks, provides more control on track, and increases early start opportunities – all of which are essential elements to winning races.
Nostalgia Super Stock in the National Motorsports Collectors Association is heavily based upon the US National Hot Rod Association stock car category. Indeed, America was where this class first got underway: in the 1980s, retired racers Dave Duell and Arlen Vanke started exhibition racing 1960s-style cars at Nostalgia drag races to generate interest and quickly gain popularity before eventually becoming an official championship category of NHRA competition.
In 2008, a group of Nostalgia Super Stock racers established the Nostalgia Super Stock National Association to create nationally recognized definitions and rules for this class of racing. Additionally, this organization provides rule enforcement services at events hosted by the National Hot Rod Reunion at Beech Bend Park, Dave Duell Classic, MMW events, as well as many freestanding 1/8th mile events nationwide featuring NSS classes.
Stock car racing is an international spectator sport that utilizes purpose-built vehicles, which are modified versions of mass-production street cars, usually limited to increased power and acceleration. They compete on oval and circle tracks across the world, and spectators can watch from stands. Full contact racing often results in contact between competitors; each car features large bumpers to protect drivers as a form of communication between rivals is encouraged so as to remove opponents from competition quickly and safely – it’s fast-paced fun that anyone of any age can enjoy!
Late Model cars, in addition to traditional stock cars, form another class within motorsport known as Late Models. Often custom-built racing machines with unique rules for construction based on both region and race track, utilized by professional drivers and often considered the highest level of local racing competition in many locations.
Another form of racing known as “True Stock” focuses on street cars, which can be purchased and modified for running with a price ceiling set at $3,000. Modern showroom stock racing allows modifications such as safety modifications to these vehicles.
The stock car is an American innovation first created during the early 20th century. Intended initially as transportation for those without access to expensive racing equipment, its popularity quickly spread throughout both North America and Europe – including circle track racing, oval track, and dirt track competitions.
In 1972, the NHRA sanctioned their inaugural showroom stock car series. Rules for this class allow some engine modifications; however, the car must still resemble factory production models with no visible changes; engines must have correct sizes and types of cylinder heads as well as maximum output restrictions that range between 500-550 horsepower (373-414 kilowatts). Furthermore, tire width restrictions exist as well.
Pure Stock racing aims to be an accessible, straightforward form of muscle car competition. The rules require that each car remain as it was at manufacture with no modifications allowed at any point during or post-race program; engine installation must occur according to factory location specifications within 15 inches; any deviation must be approved by tech officials beforehand.
Additionally, the chassis must be in solid state condition with no modifications permitted, including no chopping or shortening of frame rails; no channeling or X bracing enabled in frame or underbody; holes must be covered by steel; replacing rear racks behind spring/shock mounts on coil cars and past the center of rear axle on leaf-spring cars may only be done using square tubing (2×3 or 2×4) without lead supports bolted to it or weld joints on 2×3 tubing is permissible; no leads, trough or other body supports may be attached directly onto square tubing;
