Nadm is still running, but thatís mostly mid west and north, odss is mostly south east, a lot has to do with the amount of competitors, around my parts not much interest in heads up, or index, mostly dailyís that want to just play.

If this is true it doesn't surprise me at all. Truck counts have been way down as well as spectators. It's so damn expensive to travel anymore and the events are so far apart. Don't blame Randy at all for folding the tent. It lasted about 3 more years than I thought it would.

Sad to see this news. Can't blame them if it is true. Can't make money with Low turnout Local diesels events folded up or into street car shootouts.

Doesnít help with all the tracks getting shut down in the west and the extra cost to mod these trucks with all the extra emissions bs. 5g to delete an l5p? Gimme a break.

Do people even sled pull anymore? Hear even less about that sport these days it seems.

Anyone want to get something going for us southern guys? Lol.
The closest event was NHRDA, but it was a 4 hour ride to go check it out, add a few more hours to that for the further west Texas guys.
Seems like events are drying up pretty quickly here lately. I understand there were a lot of hard feelings back in the day with DHRA, but I enjoyed watching those when I went.

Sad news but sad thing is the nhrda just flat quit coming to the southeast they were doing really good with the gator diesel nationals Gainesville fl and the really big event that happened in 14 15 was huge at south Georgia motosports park in Cecil ga then they just fell off the map there are a lot of pullers in the southeast myself included that never get the chance to pull cause there are no events any where close I'm sorry but a 8 to 12 hour plus ride isn't easy or cheap if you break something

I second that 5g is steep to delete l5p I have a feeling most will keep the warrenty to trade out of every 40k to new year model

I kept my LML for that exact reason, 5 just for the tune, over on space book they were stating it was still cheaper hp per dollar than the lml. I wonít even get Into a discussion here l. Takes this off topic.

But the price of racing has been steadily rising, and the only thing youíll see racing are 10 or so Teams just like in the NHRA. It will be out of the reach for many. Hence the decline in participators.

Agreed. Tough to compete as a non sponsored person and be able to run with SS guys throwing down low 9ís.

Even 11 seconds isnít cheap.
