The 2014 edition of the 28th Annual Enderle Pull-Off is slated for September 13, 2014 starting at 6 p.m. eastern. The event is located in Urbana, Ohio at the Champaign County Fairgrounds.
In 1987, Kent and Joan Enderle unveiled the first ever "Enderle Pull-Off" at the Ohio State Fair in Columbus, Ohio. It was to reward competitors for their support of Enderle Fuel Injection. Kent Enderle patterned the event after one of the NHRA's major programs.
The first Enderle Pull-Off was a rousing success. It saw thousands of fans witnessing fifty of the top NTPA competitors lay it on the line for an Enderle purse of $17,800.00. This year's purse is a record amount of over $77,000.00. Over 1.3 million dollars has have been paid out by Enderle Fuel Injection of Simi Valley, California, makers of premium fuel injection technologies found in all types of motorsports, in this special bonus program.
ENDERLE PULL-OFF - Information & Qualifying Criteria:
The following is information concerning how competitors qualify for the 28th annual “Enderle Pull-Off“:
The Enderle Pull-Off will be held Saturday, September 13th at the Champaign County Fairgrounds in Urbana, Ohio.
There are eleven classes at the NTPA Grand National level that are part of the Enderle Pull-Off as well as three classes at the NTPA Regional National level. The NTPA Grand National classes include TWD, FWD, Super Semi, Mini, Light Super Stock, Super Stock Diesel, Super Stock Open, Pro Stock, Modified, Unlimited, and---new for 2014---Light Unlimited. Regional National classes include TWD, FWD, and Super Stock.
The Enderle Pull-Off Points are tabulated on the NTPA Grand National Circuit and in each NTPA Regional National circuit (RN 2, RN 3, RN 4, and RN 5). Region 4 has carry-over points coming into the 2014 NTPA Season.
The vehicles in the top five (5) point standings in each designated division of the NTPA Grand National Pulling Circuit and the point leader in Regions 2, 3, 4, and 5 in each designated division of the NTPA Regional National Pulling Circuit will compete in the Enderle Pull-Off.
A region must have three classes scheduled in each division to qualify for the Enderle. If a region’s division does not meet this requirement, the competitor with the most Enderle points in that division from any other region or combination thereof will be selected.
In the case in which a competitor qualifies in two different regions, the next competitor with the most combined points from the same two regions will be a qualifier "at large".
Competitors earn points on either the GN or RN point circuits according to their license/registration. Competitors do not earn points in both categories.
All NTPA National point events will count towards the Enderle Pull-Off's point system except for a blackout period beginning five days prior to and five days proceeding calendar year's date for the Enderle Pull-Off. (i.e. Enderle Pull-Off is September 14th - points do not accumulate between September 9th and 19th of the preceding year). This gives competitors a chance to concentrate on making the Enderle Pull-Off without worrying about breakage or traveling to the event from another locale.
