    Hey they are well into the .70's.

    Nice runs.

    If NHRA goes total pro mod will IHRA pick up TAD?

    i seriously doubt ihra will ever pick up tad. they would outclass their top fuel program too bad. wouldn't look too good to have tads running .20's and .30's and the top fuel boys not doing it.

    atchison is running strong! how bout vouros .75! congrats to both teams. must be some killer air up there!.

    atchison will be tough to stop in the final! who's tuning him?

    the reason why the fan interest is high is because they actually promote the promods. 'fans dont leave your seats because here come those wild pro mods...' instead of 'well here comes the alcohol cars, while you have a chance, go check out the pro teams, or check out the mfg midway.....' (not all announcers are guilty of this).

    the newness is starting to wear off, and i think fans are starting to realize pro mod is a slow tafc with doors. i've been watching the stands here lately, and there are just as many fans in the stands watching tafc as pro mod. just like a 3 yr old with a new toy, i think pro mod has had it's day.

    from what i've heard from my sources, i definitely don't look for pro mod to become anything more than an 'exibition' for a long time.

    I would have never thought Rob would have put up those kinda of number this past weekend. I would have figured mid 80's. Guess he found something that Jimmy couldnt find in Marks Car!

    The IHRA TAFC always draw a good crowd but for sure the ProMods are definately the fan favorite.
