- Nostalgia Super Stock is a foot brake only class of index racing for the year models, body styles, and engine combinations, which accurately represent those cars, which raced in the FX and Super Stock classes of the ’60s. Certain exceptions in the authenticity of these cars will be allowed. Among those exceptions, but not limited to, are factors concerning safety, equality in performance, availability, and durability.
- Classification will be based on a visual inspection and an e.t. range. No modifications, which alter the car from factory stock, are permitted unless they are specifically allowed in these rules.
- Sandbagging, excessive braking near the finish line or excessive mph for a given e.t. is subject to result in a disqualification. Nostalgia Super Stock is an all run field, and will compete on an NHRA Sportsman type ladder. The class will qualify by elapsed time closest to index, be paired according to qualifying positions, and then advance to eliminations. All qualifiers in Nostalgia Super Stock must have a valid elapsed time recorded to be placed into eliminator competition. Nostalgia Super Stock racing will be conducted at all drag racing events (see race schedule).
- Accepted Products:
- Accepted Products Deadline: NMCA will accept requests from manufacturers to have new products considered for addition to 2009 accepted lists only up until November 10, 2009. After this date, NMCA will consider manufacturer requests for new products for the 2010 season.

- In a nutshell, the cars need to be of the type that ran S/S in the day, stock appearing body (fiberglass and Lexan allowed in some areas), stock location steering, Slicks no wider than 10.5", Full Interior (carpet, door panels, stock dash, headliner, ...), Stock floor pans, no frame alterations, engine and transmission of the same type originally available for the car (displacement is not a tech item), and stock appearing under the hood (must have inner fenders). There are a few safety concessions allowed -- such as disc brakes. Weight is not a tech item -- although extreme lightening is not allowed. Driver, Car, and equipment must otherwise pass NHRA safety inspections for the time/speed they run.
- Many credit former Super Stock Champion Dave Duell as the main motivator in creating Nostalgia Super Stock Racing.
