The category will again race at the Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals, NHRA Four-Wide Nationals, Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals, Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals, and the AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals.

There will also be changes to the category including an expanded field of 16 cars taking part each weekend. Also the SAM Tech NHRA Factory Stock Showdown will be contested as its own eliminator.

"It is only fitting that in the seventh year of the program we will see the SAM Tech NHRA Factory Showdown grow to seven events during the year," said Josh Peterson, NHRA vice president, racing administration. "The competition within the category continues to increase each year and to win an event can be one of the highlights during the course of the season for a Factory Stock competitor."

"The drivers, manufacturers, and fans loved the five race schedule," said Brian Massingill, director of student motorsports for the School of Automotive Machinists & Technology. "Going to seven races in 2018 will allow the class to continue to grow and a 16 car field is going to bring in even more fans and racers. We are thrilled to be part of such an exciting category."
