Hi Comp Racers. My name is Allen Stanfield and I'm a 71 yr old dumb hillbilly that loves comp and still love to drive one of those animals. My wife thinks I'm crazy and I might be crazy with what I'm about to put on here. I don't post much on ISCR, but I read a lot of the messages - some good - some not so good. The not so good is always complaining about NHRA. I was running modified elim. when NHRA dropped it. I was fortunate enough to run IHRA. Then NHRA dropped the trucks and now I see the writing on the wall!! For Comp, NHRA brings in ProMod, TS, TD and all the complaining about Comp, NHRA will get fed up with it and "BANG" we are GONE!! I'm not in love with NHRA, but all the neg e-mails, I think we should e-mail NHRA & thank them for a place to race. A lot of Comp Racers have big budget race operations. Have you ever stopped & thought for 2 minutes if NHRA drops Comp - where am I going to race? Well, there is no place to race!! Tube chassis cars with big motors - you can run TS. Tube chassis cars with small blocks - you can build a big block or quit! SM cars - if you are lucky & it passes tech - you can run SS. Dragsters & ALTs with 6 cylinders, 4 cylinders - you can put them in mothballs. No place to race!! That's why I think instead of being so neg towards NHRA - we should e-mail them & thank them for a place to race. I know I'm going to get a "MAC ATTACK" for this, but I'm trying to save COMP for you young guys - I'm too old to worry much about it. I just look at the car count in COMP now - it just doesn't look good!! Good Luck & Be Safe to all you Comp Racers this year!!
