The world's premier eighth-mile drag racing association has not forgotten its outlaw roots. Pro Mod
was birthed by asphalt desperados, and while the class has evolved and expanded to its current
sophisticated and perhaps even exclusive state, the PDRA has not lost its first love. In true
outlaw fashion, the biggest and baddest of the PDRA will now be even bigger and badder.
Effective at the Mid America Showdown in Indianapolis, Indiana, July 13-15, nitromethane will be
allowed in Pro Extreme.
"This move is going to be great for the class, great for the racers, great for the fans," stated
PDRA's Bob Harris. "This type of excitement is what the PDRA is all about. We are home to the
quickest and fastest eighth-mile doorslammers on the planet and we plan to keep it that way."
The PDRA has implement just two rules in using nitromethane. First, injected nitro is allowed at 98
percent with dual mags allowed and no restriction on one fuel pump. Weight requirements are the
same as screw cars at 2350 lbs. Second, roots supercharged engines up to 14-71 are allowed no more
than 40 percent nitro with one mag and no limit on fuel pump size. These are limited to 70 percent
overdrive. All other rules for Pro Extreme can be found in on http://www.pdra660.com/competition/rules/pro-extreme/.
The PDRA would love to hear your thoughts. https://www.facebook.com/pdraracing/?ref=br_rs
