Here's an article that does a pretty good job of explaining the double-edged sword that is the Automatic Horsepower Factoring System (AHFS). The AHFS is unique to Stock and Super Stock racing and is the main instrument in NHRA's attempt to create and maintain parity between the hundreds of different combos that compete in these classes. Racers love it when it adjusts a soft combo more into line to take away an advantage, and hate it when the car they race must add weight due to a sub-1.20 pass put down by a stranger running the same combo. However; love it or hate it, it's the main reason why we continue to enjoy the sight of many different types of race cars in Stock and SS!

Love it or hate it it's become a critical part of the class system and from what I've seen over the years it seems to be doing it's intended task. Now if NHRA could only fill in all the missing combinations in "The Guide" we'd all be happy............

NHRA doesn't decide what ends up in the Guide; it is up to the manufacturers to submit the required info. NHRA willingly includes it if the submittal is made. Often though there are combos that the manufacturer doesn't care about seeing on the race track promoting their brand so they don't bother to submit them. If the combo is more than a few years old or if the brand no longer exists there is zero chance of the manufacturer going back in time and submitting it now.
