NHRA Announces Rule Changes Effective Prior To Next National Event

GLENDORA, Calif. (June 30, 2004) -- NHRA officials notified Top Fuel and Funny Car teams, today, of two rule amendments effective immediately. The first race after this change will be the Mopar Mile-High Nationals, July 16-18 at Bandimere Speedway near Denver.

The rule changes include specifying a new tire for Top Fuel and Funny Car competitors and requiring roll cage shielding for all Top Fuel dragsters.

The cause of last weekend's tragic accident at Gateway International Raceway near St. Louis is still under investigation and no conclusions have been reached. These rule changes are interim steps that NHRA believes are appropriate to take at this time. NHRA will evaluate additional steps as the investigation continues.
