The series will follow the same rules and points as Extreme Outlaw Pro Mod with the exception of limiting the field to 8 cars. If you're a fan of drag racing or looking for some fast-paced entertainment, these race events are for you.

New to GALOT this year is the MTC Drag Bike Nationals, a can’t-miss event for racers with a love of motorcycles.
