Rookie Pro Stock driver Camrie Caruso was the No. 1 qualifier on Saturday at Houston Raceway Park in Baytown, Texas. On the same day, the NHRA hit the North Carolina-based driver with a violation notice.
According to a Facebook post by her father Marc Caruso, the NHRA has rejected the Titan Engines Intake Manifold for the Pro Stock that she drives. Caruso began working with Titan Engines this season.
“The NHRA Pro Stock Rules Committee has met and has voted to not accept your request to continue to use the Titan Engines Pro Stock Intake Manifold,” the letter signed by Glen Gray, NHRA’s Technical Administration Executive, said. “Please let this letter serve as [the] NHRA official rejection of your request. The NHRA Pro Stock Rules Committee did; however, vote to allow you to continue to use the intake manifold in question until June 1, 2022. At any NHRA event occurring after June 1, 2022, you must use an intake manifold that meets NHRA rules as defined in the NHRA Pro Stock Electronic Fuel Injection Requirements found on NHRARacer.com.”

Caruso, who used to race Pro Mod in the NHRA, is not happy with this decision. He called the NHRA pathetic in his post.
“Geez NHRA appreciate the congratulations on our first #1,” Caruso said in the caption. “Thanks for the warm welcome. How pathetic can you be! Just sayin!”

For those that do not know what an intake manifold is, hopefully, this will help. An intake manifold is a part that supplies air to the cylinders evenly.
At this time, we do not know what the Caruso Family’s next decision is.
