IDRC PRO Heads-Up Classes

Heads up means you line up and drop the hammer.


Pro FWDPro FWD

The IDRC’s Pro FWD class is one of the most evolved and popular classes in modern drag racing. Open to all import and domestic FWD platforms powered by an I4- or V6-cylinder engine, the class is restricted to a single 72mm turbo or twin 51mm turbochargers. While all of the vehicles in this class are dedicated racecars, the retention of the unibody chassis still allows street performance enthusiasts to appreciate the technology and accomplishments of these vehicles. For 2015, the IDRC has simplified the class rules to open the class to more competitors.

Pro TurboPro Turbo 10.5

A new class for 2015 established to push the limits of performance on the popular 10.5-inch racing slick or 345mm DOT radial tire. Unibody AWD, back-half RWD and full-tube frame FWD vehicles are all permitted. To encourage participation in the new class, there are no turbo size or vehicle weight limits. V8 engines are restricted to a single power adder, while V6 and 4-cylinder engines may have multiple.

No turbo, no nitrous, no problem! The IDRC PRO-AM ALL-MOTOR class features the nation’s top unibody max-efforts racecars. High-tech, four cylinder, venerable air cooled and                                              wild rotary engines are all welcome.

IDRC Competition Index Classes

The organization that introduced the first national import drag racing series is now the first to introduce a complete set of index racing classes. We noticed that a number of new racers are already focused on building cars to meet NHRA safety guidelines for a specific elapsed time and trap speed. It only made sense to introduce these racers to index classes that matched the same performance levels set by NHRA guidelines. Since 10.0-seconds, 11.5-seconds and 14.0-seconds are specific performance limits set by the NHRA guidelines, the IDRC Competition index classes set these performance levels as the maximum performance level the vehicles are allowed to run.


Competition EliminatorCompetition Eliminator (10.00 index)

The IDRC’s Competition Eliminator class is one of the four new index classes added for 2015. Index class racing offers the excitement of heads-up racing in a class that is truly “run what you’ve brung.” There are no restrictions on turbo sizes, power adders or any modifications. As long as the car meets NHRA safety requirements for its performance level, it can run as quick as the class index allows. For Competition Eliminator, the quickest elapsed times allowed are 10.00 seconds. This corresponds to the fastest time allowed by NHRA safety rules for drivers without NHRA Competition Licenses or NHRA certified roll cages.
