Organizers of the JEGS ProMod Challenge have announced the first list of
invitees for the series-opening 39th annual ACDelco NHRA Gatornationals, the
series-opening race that runs from March 13-16 at Gainesville Raceway in central
Florida. In all, 24 racers have been invited to compete.
"It is our hope
that every race on the 2008 JEGS ProMod Challenge will exhibit the very best the
Pro Modified class has to offer," series promoter Troy Coughlin said. "We strive
to invite the drivers that best represent this style of racing, including all
six former series champions, racers with winning records at previous races held
during NHRA national events, and solid representatives of each style of racing
we allow -- including supercharged, nitrous oxide, and turbocharged-powered
"We'd love to open the doors to everyone but we must remember
that we are invited guests of the NHRA and as such we need to follow the
guidelines of our agreement with the organization. It's a privilege to race on
their stage. As such, our competition committee spent several hours putting our
first list of invitees together."
