Rohrs Concentrating on Goal While Competing in Two NMCA Categories

Bryce Rohrs credits Jason Dietsch for inspiring him to begin racing in the NMCA.
Rohrs was not racing any of his nine muscle cars when Dietsch, who competes in NMCA and NMRA and owns series sponsor Dietsch Trailer Sales in Edgerton, Ohio, suggested he pick a category, or a couple categories, in the series and pull into the beams.
After a bit of research, Rohrs chose Micro Strategies Stock Eliminator and the Dodge // Direct Connection Shootout, which also features the HHP Racing Quick 8 presented by Scoggin Dickey Parts Center for the eight quickest racers, and 2024 marks his third year in the categories.
“When Jason Dietsch, who is a friend of mine, told me I had to get into racing in the NMCA, I thought it was a good idea,” said Rohrs. “I like competing in the two categories because in addition to more seat time, it is more exciting.”
Rohrs was quick to learn the ropes in both categories.
In his 2019 COPO Camaro with a supercharged 350 cubic-inch engine for Micro Strategies Stock Eliminator, Rohrs averages 8.40 at 165 mph. He finished second in points in 2022 and eighth in points in 2023, and he is currently working toward a top-five finish in 2024.
“The Micro Strategies Stock Eliminator category is way more competitive than I anticipated because if you are not within a few hundredths of a second of where you need to be on a pass, you are not going to win,” said Rohrs, a fifth generation farmer of corn and beans who lives in Hicksville, Ohio, and owns Mostly Muscle Racing. “It is a tight field.”

Rohrs is working hard to earn his first win in Stock Eliminator, and to stay on the path he has charted for himself.
“I tell myself to keep doing the same thing, and in the same order, from strapping in and forward,” said Rohrs. “Other racers have told me not to change myself and to be as consistent as possible, so I’m working on that.”
In his 2020 Challenger Hellcat Red Eye with a supercharged HEMI engine for the Dodge // Direct Connection Shootout and HHP Racing Quick 8 presented by Scoggin Dickey Parts Center, Rohrs averages low 9s at 155 mph and has had steady success.
“I have 10 wins between the Dodge // Direct Connection Shootout and the HHP Racing Quick 8 presented by Scoggin Dickey Parts Center,” said Rohrs. “So far in 2024, I was the overall winner with a 9.26 average in the Shootout at the race in Rockingham, and I was the overall runner-up with a 9.39 average in the Shootout at the race in St. Louis and the winner with a 9.06 in the Quick 8 at the race in St. Louis. I like the challenge. Racers are coming from all over the country, so you have to be good to race against them.”
Rohrs will soon be heading to the third Red Line Oil NMCA Muscle Car Nationals event of the year, the 22nd Annual Scoggin Dickey NMCA Muscle Car Mayhem, May 30-June 2 at Beech Bend Raceway in Kentucky, where he hopes to accomplish the biggest goal he has set for himself.
“I really want to earn a win in Micro Strategies Stock Eliminator,” said Rohrs, whose crew chiefs are TJ Congleton and Miles Downing. “That is what I’m working toward.”
