NHRA ANNOUNCES 2019 PRO STOCK CAR EVENT SCHEDULE
GLENDORA, Calif. (November 10, 2018) – NHRA announced today that in 2019, the Pro Stock category will compete in 18 events in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series, which competitors believe is the “sweet spot” for the category.
“We think the new schedule will increase participation by relieving the economic burden and time commitment that comes with 24 events, which will ignite more intense competition. All of that should make for compelling action and drive fan interest,” said Josh Peterson, NHRA vice president of racing administration.
The 2019 AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals at Gateway Motorsports Park is on that list of 18.
