Montgomery, AL — The Mickey Thompson Tires Million Dollar Drag Race invades Montgomery Raceway Park this weekend and MotorManiaTV will be on the grounds all weekend streaming the action live to you ...
My son and I are heads up radial guys, and enjoy that type of racing. Bracket racing takes big time skill and no one should discount that.
IMO as long as you are racing, no matter what it is, my hat is off to you!
It's funny how everyone who says bracket racing is boring is the ones who tried it once and sucked ass or have never tried it and they know they don't have the skill to do it 🤷🏻♂️
Sorry heads up guys, I can't refinance everything I own to go racing, nor do I want to wrench on it like a Top Fuel team. Bracket/Index works for me!
I have watched both enjoy bracket racing better it is not a cookie cutter thing u see just about anything line up next to each other
This shouldnt even be a debate..each type has its own skill set required..this debate is like nascar vs drag racing..to eachbtheir own..thus article is just ti stir up somethin..theres jus as much talent needed for each type of racing..ive done both..fyi even this bracket race still has stackers and toterhomes..and high dollarcracecars..that comment in article is off base..and cuttin 00 lite on tree is tuff task on 500 tree as is on 400 tree..dumb article..jus pick ur poison ..and race..
1 last comment..bracket racing may pay the biggest payout in histiry..but biggest radial event in world sold out gate at sgmp and turned people away because a huge dragstrip bigger than montgomery was at max capacity.on spectators..only argument i have ..rest is irrelevant...
It's like watching paint dry.. no thanks
Heads up is where it's at bracket racing is boring
Nah....but im sure the concession stand will make a killing
Drugs are bad for your health
How about just give out ET and win or lose slips.... see the real racer come out and play.....
It’d be interesting to see what would happen if a Heads-Up race had the same payout. The difference maker is the .400 pro tree !
Don’t forget to hand in your man card as well 🤣
bracket racing cool.. no box though... all driver.. 👍👍👍
Of course as always we don't have the whole video.. but why taze that guy?! The other guy was the one who ran HIM over.. id want to kick his ass too if he ran over my car!
Who the hell let the cops into the race?
Two guy's have a problem with eachother, 1 guy looses his shit and runs his car into the other... they get into a fight, guy #2 beats guy #1's ass for wrecking his ride... they go and get a beer.
Are their no Men left in this world?
I'll wait while you get permission from your wife, psst...don't forget your balls from her purse.
See everyone eventually gets tazed by the cops! Both racers at fault.both need to be escorted off track and fined $$$$
What else did you expect from people that drive around in a circle looking for the finish line?
(I kid, I kid...)
Was a common scene in circle track racing in the old days. Maybe not the monster truck action.
Does anyone else have the quote "hit the pace car" in their head?
BULLSHIT taser wouldn't have gone through the suit
Are you fucking serious. Acting like a bunch of NFL players. Grow up !! Your racecar drivers
Keep cops away from tracks
So they tase the driver who gets his car destroyed by some asshat??? Makes sense
Other guy should have been charged with something too
Seen the full video.....guy deserved it. Talking about the guy in the car. Real asshole.
Shocking! NEVER saw drivers get upset with each other at BOONE SPEEDWAY!!
That's how I park my car when I'm drunk
Wtf over it a race fight for christ sake
Sad next pigs will be at hockey games ready to shoot players.
Brian Dunlop weird... this never happens at the track 🤔😂
Jerico Balduf releases photos of “THE BATMOBILE” ‘69 Chevelle built by the one and only Andy McCoy.
Balduf said “none of this could’ve been possible without the tremendous help from Andy McCoy and mike from Rage fuel systems. See you at PDRA in Virginia” #dragcoverage #chevy #chevelle #badass ... See MoreSee Less
That's brutal but funny 😂 I have no problem with pro stock, but look at a pro stock ladder vs a pro mod ladder. The last race pro mod had 29 cars, bumping 13. Pro stock can hardly get 13. There's a clear direction the sport is going, it's about time NHRA goes with it.
Good days for ProStock and Steve Evans was great but can you image if an announcer referred to a woman as “Babe” today!?
Bob had that juice on the car back then..who remember when he flipped the car jumped out and covered the intake
Ahhh Pros under the lights....don’t see that anymore
Back when it was fun to watch and the cars had distinct characteristics.
I remember that night you go Bob Glidden
I miss the hood scoops
LoL!!! I was thinking the same thing!!! Hahahahaha!!
The good ole days
I was there

Turn up the Volume! We showed you Scotty G’s car Tuesday but this is how it sounds!! Love this video with Willy Dawg on the Mic! #dragcoverage #chevy #fast #camaro #burnout ... See MoreSee Less
Ennis, TX — DragCoverage received news last night that Prostock team owners and drivers will be meeting with the Competition Director of NHRA TODAY, October 12, 2017, with a counterproposal in respo...
Be nice to have some more combinations or platforms available.. for me , the cars are way to similar , and I'm a pretty hard core drag racing fan .. but for the casual fan the class is boring to watch on TV , hell , I find it boring to watch on TV .. the win on Sunday sell on Monday theme was lost decades ago ..maybe rename the class and make pro stock closer to the current muscle cars they used to resemble when the the class started .. but they still need to be as fast as they are now
This sounds like more fake news to me
No wheelie bars lol
Think this is pro stock truck 2.0. I would be shocked if NHRA changed their mind. They didn’t do it when they axed Modified. Didn’t do it when they killed PST. Don’t really see it happening this time either.
I say keep the current cars. Use the available factory supercharged engines. Do away with the computer shocks in 2018. Loose the carbon fiber and titanium in the future to cut cost in a phasing out cycle. Give a weight penelty if they wanna run it.
They probably want to bolt on radials and switch to 1/8th mile?
Radial vs Pro Stock
Unless it’s something to get more manufacturers into instead of just chevy show. It won’t work
Just PULL the Plug..class has been irrelevant for many years.
RIP = NHRA
Use a stock body push for more factory 2 doors
Down to 18 races like pro stock bikes
Id rather watch pro stock than funny cars, bring in street outlaws cars and stop those damn interviews after every fucking race, that is why Nhra has low views.
I hope the teams are heard. A lot of teams have poured blood sweat and tears into this class. It’s sad NHRA is singling Pro Stock out when all classes are low on car count.
I know it would never happen but my idea would be cut the 2017 camaro body off and slide a 79 Camaro or Ford or mopar body over it. Take a baseball bat to the fuel injection. Slap a few carbs on it and a scoop. Get rid of the liberty and slide a lenco with levers and only allow engine and drive shaft to be recorded on racepak.
All racing that includes the word stock in it's class should really mean stock, stock wheel base stock width as close to stock as it safely can be. Including Nascar, either that or all racing will die out
The NHRA HAS done nothing to help this class..on a one broadcast for qualifying they devote 1min. To P/S an P/B...if this turns into a two class pro event.i can safely say I'm done the the NHRA..
Put them all on a radial tire and take the wheelie bar off. Then run different
weight, Displacement/combination. Steel roof/Quarters, With a Vin number
A radial tire car would hit the wall if you pushed it down a track prepped for top fuel. It may be better to merge P/S and P/M. Give the NA guys a weight break and some cubic inches. Set it up like a RVW format where every combo has a weighted handicap.
2350lbs,any size motor,carbs, no power adders. They would be able to draw cars from other groups.In my opinion they would draw 30 cars or so for a 16 car field with all the big 3 being represented.
If the NHRA doesn’t like or use the “Racers” proposal, I’d not race the rest of the year!!! NHRA can’t and shouldn’t control it all.
8 cars huh...that is stupid. No need for that...even if only 6 show up...let them race for crying out loud.
Noboby could make a mopar run with the chevys. Johnsons have a new cylinder head and are running ok, but not good enough to win.
I stopped reading when I got here.... they’re called factory hot rod for a reason. Get back to the roots with at least with factory body if nothing else....
Heads up, no prep prostocks, limited to 10.5 slicks or drag radials.. power adders optional... sounds familiar.
well ... they are losing us ...... so they better get their shit together and realize without the fans you mean absolutely nothing ..... Ciao .
Go back to factory stick cars see how good they really think they are. It would become the biggest class in NHRA
After the announcement of IHRA discontinuing Top Sportsman and all Sportsman classes to be replaced by Bracket Racing, IHRA Top Sportsman racer Earl Folse decides to make a change.....Got the rear end torn down changing the gear to run some heads up. ... See MoreSee Less
IHRA should have gotten out in front of NHRA in the no prep, heads up and radial world and started holding big races sanctioned by IHRA, huge opportunity missed. Just my $.02...
As a bracket racer I'm in love with this form of the sport. But I totally get why it's not as fun for the fans. But without bracket racing, the upper divisions won't get as many new participants. Bracket racing is the destination for many, but it's also a great feeder system into higher levels of drag racing. It doesn't draw the same crowds, but it's important to the drag racing ecosystem.
Nobody wants to bracket race lol. Whats the fun in that. 10s car vs 8s car
Index racing is way better
Bracket racing great fun for drivers not so much for fans
Come on in the waters fine!
TOP FUEL,PROSTOCK,PROMOD,FUEL FUNNIES,ARE HEADS EVERYBODY ELSE HAS A DIAL IN ON THEIR WINDOW!

I’m confused where it says “all bracket racing” but top sportsman, dragster, and other classes are bracket classes? Why would they be gone?
What I think a lot who are anti bracket racing don't get is bracket racing attracts a lot of participants. It's not really out to get spectators.
Here locally, heads up guys might run once a month, might. Bracket racing is every weekend, all weekend long. Yeah, we don't get the spectators like heads up does, but we get 10x the car count. And we run a program faster with less breakage.
Both have their place, but if a track or sanctioning body is looking for PARTICIPANTS, they want a strong bracket racing program.
Any car that runs a box that times the car to run a certain index is boring as hell.
One bracket racer winning 97 titles?
WTF would anyone keep an interest in repetitive racing??
That's not what it's about..
Seems the crybabys win...
Racing is about speed...
Iam a bracket racer myself and would love to see a touring series dedicated to bracket racing..I hate to see all the other classes leave cause I was a fan of them just as much...and for all the ones talking down on bracket racing all I can say is give it a try....it ain't as easy as everyone says it is...prob one the hardest forms of racing out there..
You have to have participation in any sport to have “fans.” Hate to say it you will always have bracket participants out number the heads up participants. Not everyone can keep up with the Jones’.
Most tracks sanction through one of the two main bodies (NHRA or IHRA) for insurance purposes.
A lot of people don't seem to realize that without that association many tracks would be forced to close due to insurance costs.
Ain't nobody likes bracket racing. Run heads up. This ain't little league. Not everyone wins in this game.
Bracket racing isn't Drag Racing, it's a hybrid and I think nit neas as good. Drag Racing traditionaly was two drivers, two cars, first one to the finish wins. Easy, simple to understand, requires no explanation. Bracket Racing on the other hand is just the opposite.
I like racing brackets and some heads up.
Bracket cars pay the month to month bills which in turn provides a track for all others to use.
I never understood why heads up and bracket people have such a distaste for each other.
Classes Return in 2019...If IHRA returns in 2019. Hopefully they at least make these big dollar bracket races and not $2000 to win kind of deal.
I would like to see them come with a true no electronics foot brake class. I mean no t-brake, no air shifter, ect. Only electronics might be a rev limiter.
Drag radial is where it's at!!!
You run them off in 2018 you can kiss 2019 goodbye
Yeah I'm starting to care nothing about nhra or ihra they are governing bodies of the past sadly
Sounds like we have a bunch of bench racers here .
I cant watch the delay box cars...
Ihra, nhra they all remind me of a home owner association lol. Support your local track
I guess you think street outlaws is real and not staged . I bet you think wwe is real also
If there wasn't bracket racing then the man with most money wins .
Say goodbye to fans. It ain't racing unless it's heads up
Track promoters pay attention. This could be good for a quick 16 program at local tracks
"Bracket racing puts butts in stands..." Said NO ONE EVER.
NHRA and IHRA are irrevelant since Street Outlaws and No Prep! Fans want excitement!
BIG MONEY BRACKET RACE.350 TO 500 ENTRIES.THEY DON'T HAVE A TOTAL ALL YEAR LONG LIKE THIS WITH THE CURRENT FORMAT.QUAIN STOTT HAS THE RIGHT IDEA!
