NHRA announced the dates for the 2014 NHRA Factory Stock Showdown that will include stops at the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series in Gainesville, Fla., Indianapolis, Reading, Pa., and Las Vegas. The program in its third year will feature three new stops beginning with the Amalie Oil NHRA Gatornationals at Auto-Plus Raceway at Gainesville, March 13-16 and ending with the NHRA Toyota Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Oct. 30-Nov. 2. The second stop on the calendar will be the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals held at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis, Labor Day weekend, Aug. 27 - Sept. 1, where the program was introduced in 2012, and will be followed by the NHRA Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway in Pennsylvania, Oct. 2-5.

The event in Indy highlighted the 2013 series, featuring 27 entries as Chris Holbrook defeated Dave Connolly in the final round with his '13 Mustang Cobra Jet. The NHRA Factory Stock Showdown was designed to showcase the NHRA Ford Mustang Cobra Jet, Dodge Mopar Challenger Drag Pak and the Chevrolet COPO Camaro.

The competition includes entries from both the FS/A and FS/B Stock Eliminator classes with each of the two classes running as a separate category within Stock Class Eliminations, and a winner being crowned in each. The two winners will then square off for the NHRA Factory Stock Showdown Championship using a three-tenths staggered start. Each of the two class winners will receive the NHRA Class Wally trophy with the run-off winner being crowned the NHRA Factory Stock Showdown Champion.

The two classes have new designations and indexes this year.
