RUMOR MILL - IS PRO STAGING A BIG-MONEY RACE AHEAD OF 2024 NHRA SEASON OPENER?
This is one we will go bonkers over when all the "i's" are dotted and "t's" crossed. Word has it that the Professional Racers Organization are finalizing the details for a $1,000,000 event to kick off the 2024 season in February.
While details are still a bit uncertain, we are told this event, which is supposed to be in the southeastern United States in February, will pay $250,000 apiece to the winners of Top Fuel and Funny Car and $100,000 to Pro Stock, and it will be weeks ahead of the NHRA season-opener.
If this one flies, this puts pressure on NHRA to deliver a similar big-stakes event which is not a season-long accumulation of points to participate.
