NHRA News: National Event Quotas: How and Why They're Set
Racers, I've seen posts on some of the forums that ask about quotas at National events. When I saw this on www.NHRARacer.com I wanted to share it here.
One of the many important duties of NHRA’s Racing Administration department is the setting of class quotas at NHRA national events. Deciding on the number of entrants per class and in total takes into account many factors that reflect the current environment of the events, including historical data, the size of facility, television broadcast times, track and local curfews, weather history, the size and number of haulers, and past on-site experience. Despite quotas being set, at many events already this year racing has run well into the evening or NHRA officials were forced to reduce the number of qualifying passes to time constraints. Below are some examples of the challenges:

Facility size: In many situations we are limited on the amount of entries we can accept due to overall size of the facility. In Gainesville, approximately 20 teams were parked in the spectator lot.

Live TV: With the move to FS1 and 17 live TV shows changes are made to ensure that segments of racing meet time slots set by FOX.
Curfews/weather: Based on a growing population around many of the facilities, curfews have been established, which limits the amount of time that race cars can be run. That challenge is made tougher early and late in the season when cool weather conditions can produce conditions that are not ideal.

Size of haulers: Over the past several years, the size of haulers have grown, which limits the amount of useable space to have additional cars on property.

NHRA strives to deliver the best experience possible to everyone attending a national event, and the ability to do so is challenged when NHRA is forced to park racers in spectator parking, schedules force us to run late into the evening under conditions that are not ideal, which is why the establishment and enforcement of quotas is so important.

Rockingham Dragway Goes Old School on June 4
ROCKINGHAM, N.C. – Rockingham Dragway owner Steve Earwood is hoping to show that everything old is new again when he opens his racetrack for an “old school” event on June 4 that will scrap all the electronic gadgetry that has become so commonplace in drag racing.

No Christmas Tree, no incremental times and speeds, no digital scoreboards. Instead of all the complexities of the modern sport, Rockingham will offer heads up, run-what-you-brung-and-hope-you-brung-enough street-style drag racing in a manageable environment. The electronic timing will be offered to those who wish to record their times, upon request.

“We had a lightning issue at one of our “Fun Run” test and tune events,” Earwood said, “and in desperation, we kind of told everyone what was going on and offered them the option of running without timing equipment. Surprisingly, many of them preferred the simple ‘arm drop’ start to the complexities of the Christmas Tree and really didn’t care about timing.

“That goes back to the beginnings of the National Hot Rod Association,” Earwood said. “They started with ‘arm drop’ starts, then flagmen, then electronics. Obviously, if you’re looking for precision, you have to have electronic timing but, if you’re just looking to have some fun with like-minded friends, I can see how simpler might be better.”

The NHRA originally was founded to address the perils of street racing by providing a controlled environment in which Americans could feed their inherent need for speed without fear of unnecessarily endangering their lives or the lives of others. Today, thanks to movie franchises like “The Fast and the Furious” and reality TV shows like American Outlaws, street racing once again has become a major concern for civic leaders, law enforcement and safety-minded racing enthusiasts like Earwood.

So, while others are looking ahead for “new solutions” to an old problem, Rockingham’s owner has decided that the future may lie in the past. “We’ll see,” said the 2016 winner of the International Drag Racing Hall of Fame’s Founder’s Award. “We’re not trying to re-invent the wheel. We’re just trying to provide alternatives. For those who prefer electronic timing and scoreboards, we’ll make allowances for them, too. It’s all just about having fun. Twenty-five dollars for car-and-driver or motorcycle-and-rider for unlimited runs down the quarter mile starting at 6 p.m. If people like it, sure, it could become something we do on a regular basis.”
