Pro Modified Racing
One of the most popular divisions in drag racing, the Pro Modified class captures the true spirit of hot rodding. Bursting on the scene several years ago, this division offers a widely diverse group of race cars with a variety of 2000-horsepower engines propelling the cars down the quarter-mile in the low six-second range at speeds well over 230 mph. There have been several under-six second passes in this class.
The Pro Modified class was an extension of Top Sportsman racing, but now offers unique body styles and huge supercharged or nitrous oxide powered engines. By the mid-1990s, the class became very popular with fans, body styles range from 1933 Willys coupes through Mercury and Chevy bodied-cars of the 1950s and split-window Corvette Stingrays of 1963 to more modern-looking Camaros, Novas, and Chargers, and the class grew in stature and popularity.
The International Hot Rod Association embraced Pro Modified as a competitive class in 1990.
The first IHRA Pro Modified champion was crowned in 1990, and cars were running low to mid-seven elapsed times with speeds of around 200 mph. By contrast, in 2007 Carl Spiering ran a personal career best quarter-mile run of 6.00-seconds at 237.63 mph at the IHRA Canadian Nationals at Cayuga, Ontario.
Today's Pro Modified teams have the choice of running either a supercharged engine with a maximum displacement of 527-cubic inches, or adding nitrous oxide injection to the engine which can be up to a whopping 820-cubic inches in size. Turbocharged engines are not allowed. Minimum weights for the front-engine cars are 2425 pounds for nitrous and 2700 pounds for supercharged. Wheelbases range from 100 to 115 inches
In 2001, the National Hot Rod Association adopted Pro Modified racing, and while the class has become popular at selected events, the NHRA is still treating Pro Modified racing at an exhibition status.
Pro Modified racing offers the best in heads-up professional drag racing with the sport’s most diverse, entertaining, and crowd-pleasing race cars.
