This is great news for the southeast gassers, I have spoke to Mr Stott at one of the gasser events he puts on, seemed like he was committed to putting on a first class show and was easy to have a conversation with; if you haven't been to one of their events I recommend going, they also have the events all on youtube

South East Gassers run as far west as Iowa, I believe.

“Gassers never bracket raced”

Enjoy !

These cars run strict 1967 NHRA rulebook. And as always, Harley Earl’s finest are well represented.

Not exactly strict. They have some unique rules that NHRA never had throughout the years of the Gas classes. Like their no automatic trans rule. Or their rockers must be higher than spindle centerline.
I understand it's to make it more fun, but they certainly aren't "strict 1967 rules".

AFAAK, South East Gassers will not allow anything not used in ‘67, excluding safety equipt.

This includes aluminum Holley’s, “modern” wheels, hi-back seats, body wraps, decal car names, 4 links, and I for one never saw an auto gasser.

They specifically rule out Camaros.

Might the rocker arm/spindle rule be in place to keep someone from trying to run a pro-mid ?

Could all the rules be in place to honor the Golden Age of drag racing ?

I’m pretty sure someone w/a screen name of “Black Widow” will enjoy South East Gassers.

Some younger spectators have expressed a concern, “SEGA cars don’t sound right leaving the line”
They had never seen a drag race with cars launching at 9000 and no stutter box !

There were a bunch of gassers in 1967, and way before using hydromatics. In fact SEGA made an exemption for one particular Willys that Quain helped rebuild, simply because it had been a hydro back then, and still is.
Once the first gassers began running hydromatics they became much more popular than sticks in the Gas Classes. Except in SEGA today.
Most of the class winners like Stone Woods and Cook, Ohio George, KS Pitmann, Hugh Tucker, Kohler Bros., and many others ran an automatic.
You might be too young to recall that B&M Automotive got their start building B&M Hydrosticks specifically for the Gas Class. Bob and Don Spar started doing their thing in the late 1950's.

Gene Cromers Moonlighter was an automatic? As I remember, it was a 427 Ford?

Might be a regional thing, or maybe we didn’t have the hi dollar SWC class cars. I remember most Gassers being 327 powered Angelia’s, Willis and of course 55 Chevys. Most all had tunnel rams
