Just copy and paste the URL to the video here in this topic. The forum software should do the rest.

There is racing footage of the new and old CJ but per Scott--

The problem is that Facebook isn't allowing it to be posted.  The NMCA one is 4 hours long and it's not allowing embedding, either.

But NMCA suggests we can view it using this--

Here are the results- NMCA has many categories-

Late model muscle cars have a new class to run in, as Mickey Thompson Heavy Street debuted this weekend. The heads-up eliminator category does not use a standard qualifying order as pairings are handled via a chip draw system. Three hits are given prior to eliminations, though, and Terry Reeves was the quickest of the bunch as the man from Bethel, Ohio, clicked off a cool 9.439 at 155.24 mph hit in his ’18 Mustang. Making it through the rounds to the finals, it was Reeves against Simon Haddad of Shelby Township, Michigan, in his ’16 Challenger. Reeves had the hole shot, but Haddad was able to drive around him and take the win with a 10.400 at 136.06 mph pass against Reeves’s 11.899 at 124.90 mph effort.

A special addition for the Cobra Jet celebrations this weekend, Diversified Products Marketing Vintage Cobra Jet pitted classic CJ-powered vehicles against one another. Ultimately, Stephen Klacik from Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, showed ‘em how it was done in qualifying with a quick 0.005-second reaction time to take the lead in his ’72 Gran Torino. Five rounds of classic CJ action saw Steven Hall of Sweeny, Texas, take on Jacksboro, Texas, native Rod Hetzel. A -0.009-second foul start for Hetzel meant game over, while Hall stopped the traps in 9.768 seconds at 126.23 mph to make his win official.

Meanwhile, for the ’08 and newer group, the Diversified Products Marketing Modern Cobra Jet class was the perfect playground to let their pony power shine. Hailing from Bayshore, New York, Gary Richard cut a perfect 0.000-second light in qualifying and earned the right to be at the top of the list. In the finals, Mike Pustelny of Almont, Michigan, and Rod Hetzel of Jacksboro, Texas, were the last two men standing and had qualified third and fourth. Hetzel once again red light-itis struck, and Pustelny went on to earn the win in his ’14 Cobra Jet on an impressive tear of 9.831 at 136.25 mph.

After the winners from both the Vintage and Modern Cobra Jet classes were determined, they faced off head-to-head in a winner take all battle of old versus new. Hall in his ’68 and Pustelny in his ’14 both left the line hard, but Pustelny went 9.863 at 135.88 mph on his 9.81 dial in over Hall’s 9.754 at 136.46 mph trip on a 9.74 dial.

The street car haven class of Gear Vendors True Street was won by Randy Thomas of Paducah, Kentucky, as Thomas and his ’10 Mustang averaged an 8.777-second elapsed time across their three runs. Greg Woodlard was deemed the runner up on his 9.346-second average, while Codey Woodby won the 9-second group with a 9.406-second average and Jeff Yepper won the 10-second group with his 10.059-second average. Topping the 11-second group was Joe Glockner, Dakota Poston won the 12-second average, Mark Storts won the 13-second bunch, and Rob Tackett rounded things out as the winner of the 14-second contenders.

Bracket 3 brought together a variety of competitors from several classes including True Street, Vintage Cobra Jet, Modern Cobra Jet, HEMI Shootout, and more, but it was VCJ contender Don Fotti who took the win in the finals. Coming all the way from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, Fotti went 11.595 at 97.77 mph on his 11.50 dial in with his ’68 Cobra Jet against Rob Tackett who ran a low 14-second pass.
