This limited, naturally aspirated class continues to grow in popularity as the NMRA offers the most competitive all-motor class in Ford racing. Pure Street is designed for "street-oriented" 11- and 12-second small-block, naturally aspirated Fox-chassis Fords, including '96-present 4.6 Mustangs. Maximum displacement is 310 ci with street intakes. Limited cylinder heads and 0.500-inch-lift, hydraulic-roller camshafts are just some of the concessions to power. Maximum rear slick size is 26.5x10.5 inches as measured. In eliminations, there will be an all-run field run on a pro-tree (0.400) NHRA Sportsman ladder.

One to Watch:After coming on strong at the end of the season, Darrin Hendricks could be a Pure Street player in 2003.

Quick Fact:Pure Street competitors use simple street combinations to make outrageous power. Most make at least 450 rwhp with bolt-on heads, mild street intakes, and hydraulic-roller camshafts.
