Hot Street In the hotly contested naturally aspirated Hot Street class, NMRA regulars had to fight their way through their NMCA Pro Stock counterparts. Pro Stock is the NMCA's Hot Street equivalent, and the rules are basically the same for the Mustangs between classes. Therefore, many guys run both Hot Street and Pro Stock. Charlie Booze Jr. runs both classes, but at Joliet he played for the home NMRA team in Hot Street, while fellow Mustang racer Andy Schmidt ran for the NMCA Pro Stock side. Both Charlie and Andy made it to the final, where Charlie was able to take the win. Funny thing is the two would have to race again in the Super Bowl, and Charlie was able to take the win there, as well. Poor Andy couldn't catch a break against Charlie at Joliet, as the score improved to 5-3 for the NMCA.
