NMCA Adds Xtreme Pro Mod for 2016

The NMCA announced Jan. 11, it is adding the VP Racing Fuels Xtreme Pro Mod class this year. Competing on the eighth mile, these machines will feature nitrous-injected, blown or turbocharged engine combinations.

“We’re planting ourselves firmly in the middle by allowing the racers to have fun without being handcuffed,” NMCA Technical & Communication Director Dave Werremeyer said. “The new VP Racing Fuels Xtreme Pro Mod class has its roots in the Pro Mod world but with an outlaw twist to it, similar to several popular eighth-mile shootouts around the country.”

Payout for VP Racing Fuels Xtreme Pro Mod winners will be $5,000 plus contingency. Past NMCA Pro Mod winners have earned well above $7,000, with some close to $9,000, when payouts and contingency are combined, the organization said. NMCA entry fee for car/driver is $175 with no additional tech card fee.

A Thursday test session at the season opener in Bradenton will be $75 and will feature a prepped track. In addition, parking spots at all NMCA events are reserved for VP Racing Fuels Xtreme Pro Mod teams that notify the NMCA event team in advance. Finally, an NMCA official will visit every Xtreme Pro Mod pit space, before each round of qualifying and eliminations, to notify teams of class run time, pairing order and run order.

VP Racing Fuels Xtreme Pro Mod will be contested at all six NMCA events in 2016:
