Due to feedback from racers we have updated the race classes for the 4 New England Dragway produced Nostalgia events for 2016.
You will see the return of A Street and B Street in the Street Machine Eliminator class, Comp Eliminator has been split into Electronics and Foot-Brake mimicking our Super Pro and Pro ET classes and the Hot Rod Eliminator class will be reserved for the more amateur racer with no permanent numbers, and no electronics. Trans brakes will be allowed in this class.
Thank you for the previous racer input and Jack Webster for letting me bounce ideas off of him.
