Pro Stock Added To Pep Boys NHRA Nationals

INDIANAPOLIS — NHRA officials have added Pro Stock to the upcoming Pep Boys NHRA Nationals on Sept. 15-18 at Maple Grove Raceway.

The track was purchased in April by veteran NHRA racer Kenny Koretsky and his family, including current Pro Stock driver Kyle Koretsky.

The annual stop at Maple Grove Raceway is the kickoff event to the six-race NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series Countdown to the Championship playoffs. With the addition of Pro Stock to the fan-favorite race, all four professional categories — Top Fuel, Funny Car, Pro Stock and Pro Stock Motorcycle — will be in action at the playoff opener.

Pro Stock will now compete at all six Countdown to the Championship races.

“It’s very exciting to have Pro Stock at Maple Grove. Pro Stock is a staple for fans in this area and it’s just a great fit having that class at this race,” Kenny Koretsky Jr. said. “I think the Pro Stock fans are really going to come out in full force. There’s a big Pro Stock following in this area, and you add in the support from Pep Boys being on board for this race, and it’s going to be a great event.”
