2014 NHRA: 16-Car Pro Mod Field will Battle it out at the Super Chevy Show

Pro Modifieds are one of the most well-known categories at the Super Chevy Show presented by Chevrolet Performance as the fans love to feel the grandstands shake beneath their feet when the supercharged engines crank up and pound the pavement.

Pro Mods power down the historic 1/8-mile drag strip at speeds of over 200 MPH in under four seconds. They have been a staple in drag racing since the beginning as everybody wanted to know who had the quickest and fastest door car thus creating the Pro Mod category. Fabled veterans like Scotty Cannon, Bill Kuhlmann and Shannon "The Iceman" Jenkins paved the way for the class today by providing excitement to fans for years and driving others to follow in their footsteps.

Local favorites Dwayne Watkins, John Sullivan and Tony "The Sandman" Williams will be at MIR trying to grab the elusive Pro Modified victory at the prestigious Super Chevy Show presented by Chevrolet Performance. Watkins ran a career best elapsed time in the fall of last season with a 3.68 second blast, while Sullivan is knocking on the door to the 3.5x elapsed time range.
