The IHRA Competition Department has announced that turbo charged entries will not be a part of
the Torco Racing Fuels Pro Stock program in 2006.
Torco Pro Stock"After much deliberation, we've decided to delay the inclusion of small cubic
inch turbo charged entries into what is a very competitive Mountain Motor pro stock program,"
said IHRA Director of Competition and Technical Services Mike Baker. "Our decision was based
upon the time frame necessary for gathering data and obtaining firm commitments from the various
teams wishing to compete in the 2006 season."
Instead, the 2006 racing season will be used to obtain information essential for the successful
introduction of this non traditional combination into the "naturally aspirated" world of IHRA
Torco Racing Fuels Pro Stock in the future.
"We've proven that our competition department can design standards that facilitate fair
competition, along with providing racers, sponsors, and the spectators with a variety of
combinations to choose from and cheer for," stated Baker.
The Torco Racing Fuels Pro Stocks will kick off their season at the Amalie Oil Texas Nationals
March 24-26 at San Antonio Raceway.
