Nostalgia Super Stock is an index-style foot brake only class for the year models, body styles, and engine combinations, which accurately represent those cars, which raced in the A/FX and Super Stock classes of the ’60s. Certain exceptions in the authenticity of these cars will be allowed. Among those exceptions, but not limited to, are factors concerning safety, equality in performance, availability and durability. Clasification will be based on a visual inspection and an E.T. range. No modifications, which alter the car from factory stock, are permitted unless they are specifically allowed in these rules. Sandbagging, excessive braking near the finish line or excessive mph for a given E.T. is subject to result in a disqualification. Nostalgia Super Stock is an all-run field, and will compete on an NHRA Sportsman type ladder. The class will qualify by elapsed time closest to index, be paired according to qualifying positions, and then advance to eliminations. All qualifiers in Nostalgia Super Stock must have a valid E.T. recorded to be placed into eliminator competition.

Class Criteria

The intent of the Stock Class is to simulate an original assembly line vehicle. It is recognized that most of the vehicles will have some changes and additions. To distinguish between Stock and Modified class entries, we adhere to the following guidelines.

 

A modification is considered any part, piece, or system of pieces, currently on the vehicle, that was not available from the factory’s assembly line at the time of the entry vehicle’s date of manufacture. This includes, but is not limited to: incorrect wheels, headers, chrome engine components, after-market gauges (including tacks), intake manifolds, non-factory carbs, lift kits, shackles, traction bars, competition shifters, deeply tinted glass, re-located exhaust systems, modern stereo/cassette/cd systems, and both interior and exterior changes that significantly alter the vehicle’s appearance. A Maximum of three (3) modifications will be allowed on “Stock” Class entries.
