Does the SFI chassis tag make them Top Comp legal? And, what is Top Comp?

Can a car with the SFI cert run brackets w "big cars" too?

I beleive the answer is yes. But, you may want for one of the builders to come along say for sure.

First of all, TOP Comp and JUNIOR Comp are not the same thing. TOP Comp is a class that some of us tried to get going last year in order to utilize a bunch of the faster single cylinder, flathead engines that are out there not being used. The thought was that we could build a junior that, at some point, the NHRA might approve a 6.90 speed limit for junior dragsters. We are STILL building these cars and hope to get them approved soon.

JUNIOR Comp is a class that has been around for a few years now, but has not really caught on anywhere except in Denver (with the help of Earle Weston) and on the West Coast Division 7 area mostly. They are motorcycle, snowmobile, and watercraft powered dragsters that 14 to 20 year old drivers are permitted to drive as quick as 6.90 and I believe 110 mph.

TOP COMP cars cannot run with big cars. JUNIOR COMP cars CAN run with big cars in the NHRA. Conversely, JUNIOR COMP cars cannot run with any other class of junior dragsters at this time.

YES, as soon as I can get my webmaster going on it we will have photos of the OUTLAW Junior Comp car that we are currently building on our website. We will be finish-welding the chassis today, reinstalling the engine and accessories and plan to start building the header at the end of the week. The plan is to have the car with us at Benton so a number of interested parties can preview the concept that Brad Holzhauer is debuting next season in the Midwest Series, though it will not quite be ready for any runs there. We want to do some private testing with the combination before we hit the track in front of the junior community. Our hope is that we will be seeing some sub-4 second 330 times very soon!!

It is my understanding that junior comp cars CAN run with big cars. The rules do not allow them to run with any other junior dragster classes, but okay with big cars.

The kids can get licensed for Junior Comp at 14. They can run 6.90 (6.70 at 110 mph max) . When drivers get their state driver's licence they can run as quick as 10 flat in the quarter (6.40 in the 1/8th). With additional licensing they can go a lot faster (I think the cockpits are legal down into the 7's) Above 130 we run chutes. Chris McGee
Typically the adult class is Pro or No E. Cool watching a school kid give a Mustang or Camaro a head start!

Exactly what we were contemplating. If we can invest in a Jr Comp chassis and play with it at 14, but have the ability to do some "big car" bracket racing once he turns 16, then the effort may be worth it. Otherwise to mess with Jr Comp from 14-16 seems too much. Rather just wait and put him in a big car at 16.

His big brother runs 600cc Micro Sprints so we have great relationship with motorcycle engine builder. For very little money we could play (not really Jr Comp rules) with 600cc, then 750cc, then 1000cc.

Heck! The motorcycle engine is less money than our Rhino! LOL

Thanks guys, engine builder is chomping it to bits!
