there was one S/S car in LA, Mike Lidecap. also the NMRA Bradenton race was the same weekend as NSCA.....and i know there were several cars that werent finished yet. open comp has always been the biggest class in both nmra & pro. EFI really isnt the same because they dont allow carbs. i think them having a truck class is a big help also...alot of those guys really dont have anywhere else to run cept local stuff.
