PDRA Pro Street class adopted for local Canada Heads Up events

Nick Agostino’s Cannoli Express – SB twin Turbo Pro Street Entry

Longo/ Doldo Racing partnership’s 800+ci Nitrous fed 3rd Gen x-pro stock

August 30, 2022

The brass behind the scenes of the Canada Heads Up  – Shootout Series presented by Speedwire Systems, Maxima Racing Oil and Nash Competition Engines have been busy trying to sort out the direction of the Series’ quickest class – Pro10five and its been decided that CHU will drop the current P10Five rules in favor of adopting the popular PDRA Pro Street rules set.

We talked to Tyler Crossnoe  about our plans and the fact we have Canadian racers that are interested in running the PDRA class.

“Adopting their rules only makes sense, this way they can set up their cars at weight for both organizations” – Ian Hill CHU Director.

Tyler Crossnoe, during the discussion about naming the CHU class similar to their PDRA counter part – “That’s completely perfect and I completely agree with the move as I think it will help both sides grow and become stronger!”

In the past, CHU has struggled with car count in our efforts to provide a place for the quickest cars on 10.5 tire to compete at. It is expected that this class/ rule change will miraculously fill the class with cars, but rather over time give our local travelling racers a place near home to test them PDRA cars, and in time possible offer them a local shootout of their own!

Bear’s Performance 4.20 Pro Mods set to the take the stage at CHU opener

May 16, 2022

Bear’s Performance Products presents the all new 4.20 Pro Mod class at the CHU events this season!

Hot on the heals of the schedule release for 2022, Canada Heads Up – Shootout Series presented by Speedwire Systems, Maxima Racing Oil and Nash Competition Engines made the announcement of their intended growth on the Big Tire side of things with the addition of 4.20 Pro Mod.

“Ontario has always been a hot bed for Pro Modified teams and we saw a definite spread between the tried and true Pro Mods of the past being parked to make way for the few new build cars that tour the 3 second classes at events south of the boarder. This left a ton of door cars that could run comfortable mid 6 second passes at home looking for a place to race”, Ian Hill – CHU Director. “The 4.20 class is very popular along the east coast and in Quebec so we figure, with our standard great track prep and run schedule we’d be able to offer the best of the best for those door slammers looking for a place to try some heads up racing!”

The Bear’s Performance 4.20 ProMods will run on a Pro Tree and eighth mile 4.20 index. Racers will be able to take advantage of the Friday test sessions, followed by Saturday qualifying and Sunday Eliminations. On top of the guaranteed purse, the class competitors will run for a points championship that will see cash payouts and special one off awards.

Bear’s Performance front-man Kevin Zimmer says the Team’s K&K/ Bear’s  Dodge Stratus will be ready and attending at least the first 3 events on the CHU schedule. Looking at the number racers that have prepaid for registration and parking for the class, the CHU brass says this class will be filled with some of the hottest big tire racing Ontario has seen in a long time!
