Bahrain 1 Pro Mod driver Stevie “Fast” Jackson took a shot at the NHRA. He was not happy with the lack of parity in the class.

So, he went to Facebook to voice his opinion. He said that the NHRA refused to foster an environment for each combination to win.

He had to bring out Charlotte to the NHRA national event at Summit Motorsport Park in Norwalk, Ohio. He was the runner-up in the race.

Lucille was put on standby. Several days later after the Norwalk event, he received a letter from the NHRA.

“The NHRA Pro Mod Rules Committee has discussed and is implementing changes for parity in category,” the letter said. “The changes listed below are for immediate implementation for the NHRA Pro Mod category. We appreciate your continued support and look forward to seeing you soon.”

The new rules changes changed the Centrifugal Supercharger from 10,000 RPM limit to 9,500. This is as long as they are using the Fuel Tech NHRA Software 4.90.

The Screw Supercharger combination had their Overdrive reduced from 75.0 to 65.0%. The Roots Supercharger combination reduced their base weight from 25 pounds from 2,640 to 2,615.

The Pro Mod class does not compete again until the Menards Nationals presented by PetArmor at Heartland Motorsports Park in Topeka, Kansas from August 12th through 14th.

“I am grateful thought that a combination didn’t run away from the field by a tenth for 18 months before it was reeled in,” Jackson said in his caption on his Facebook post. “It still appears as though they are trying to eliminate the 4.8 bore space roots combo, but we will see. Back to track testing”
