NMCA Classes

Post  Dave De on July 18th 2018, 10:24 pm

I'm looking at running at Norwalk for the Cobra Jet reunion. They arent having a Pro bracket race. So I look into the rules to get into the NMCA to find a class. I cant find one that I see that a non-NMCA member can run. If you are a member please help.
My car is a tube chassis 69 Mustang, ladder rear/M2 front, 580 NA BBF with P-51 heads on E85, its plated for the street but has a 12 pt cage, has big tires but that can change.
Ive got a message into the NMCA contact already.

If I'm screwed just say so.
Thanks

Can you run Open Comp?The only bad thing about that class though is qualifying is based off of reaction time not ET!! Sad

I think Mark nailed it.... Open Comp FTW!

Time to get the practice tree out and work it like a pickpocket at a jewelry convention!

If you can hit a .500 Sportsman tree then a .500 pro tree is no different unless you are anticipating the light. I had to lower my launch rpm and slow down the transbrake dump on my car in order to not go red on the .500 pro tree.

The last time I had a Pro Tree experience was a .400 light and I was way late. I didnt know I was in the quick 8 program until minutes before it started. I couldnt adjust my button or bypass the TB relay.
I will practice and see what I can do if Im back together in time to run.
