Galesburg Speedway - 2018 Street Stock Rules

~


Michiana State Line Racing Association
Galesburg | Springport | South Bend | New Paris | M-40 | Kalamazoo


 It’s become harder to field a car to run on your favorite short track, much less comply with different rules at surrounding tracks if a driver wants to do some traveling.  Enter the Michiana State Line Racing Association!  This is the Association’s first attempt at uniting and sharing a common set of rules and class names.  In rare circumstances, tracks will not be able to adopt identical rules; they’ll be similar but not identical (watch for rules in green).


PLEASE NOTE. It is the driver’s responsibility to look over and/or upgrade all personal safety equipment.  A full containment seat, a head and neck restraint, a fuel cell with all of the proper check valves in place, a new fire suit including proper under garments, gloves, socks and shoes that all meet the highest of safety ratings.  It is highly recommended that all safety equipment meets the Snell 2015 rating and be SFI/1 approved. 

The General Rules applicable to all classes follow at the end of the class specific rules.

BASE WEIGHT.  The minimum weight before qualifying or any race is 3100 pounds including the driver; 57% left side weight. 

 

TIRES.  Hoosier 800 Series.  Tire soaking and/or any other type of tire tempering is prohibited.  Steel 8" racing safety wheels with 1" lug nuts.  Tread width will be 77” measured with toe plates.

 

FRAME.  The minimum wheelbase is 108”.  Rear wheel drive, stock OEM frames only.  No fabricated chassis of any kind.  Minimum frame height off the ground will be 6” which can be checked before qualifying or any race.  Stock OEM style gearbox; no rack and pinion steering components allowed.  

 

BODY. 

OEM style stock appearing steel body from front to rear. (See rule below on Five Star body parts that do not have to remain steel).  The doors and the rockers can be made from aluminum or sheet metal but will have the stock body line and curve as do the stock panels.  All bodies will be stock appearing; no flat sides or stretched out bodies.
Five Star has stock appearing '88 Monte Carlo steel body that Lane carries at a reasonable price. The entire body is steel and has a fiberglass stock sized roof with C pillars.  Running this Five Star unaltered fiberglass roof mounted 100% in a stock appearing fashion is allowable. Five Star also makes a stock appearing (not a flat sheet of fiberglass) replacement fiberglass hood for these cars which is also allowed.   Stock size/height/length A & B pillars, no lowering or moving the full stock sized roof.
All cars will have an unaltered Five Star equivalent nose and tail piece.  There will be no gaps or overlapped panels that will let air escape.  Mount these panels as they were intended to be mounted.  All nose and tail pieces will be mounted in a stock fashion. The same thing goes for the material joining fenders to the nose piece.  A 1981 aftermarket Camaro nose piece can be run on a full stock bodied Camaro.  No homemade rear tail panels or nose pieces. 
All cars with stock appearing bodies will be allowed a 5”x60” flat spoiler centered with no lip. Innovative bodies with sloped roofs and long windshield angles may not be permitted to run a spoiler.
All truck bodies require a back window a flat tonneau cover up to the top of the bed and have minimal rake on the bed.  No spoilers of any kind on a truck body.

 

All Street Stocks will retain windshield posts which will be steel or fiberglass.  No wrap around windshields of any kind.  No stretching the pillars out to achieve more roof or windshield angle.  Roof and windshield angles are to remain close to OEM measurements.
Install the bodies level and to spec.  Weight penalties or the no spoiler policy may be assessed for bodies built outside of the stock appearing rules, as deemed by officials. It is permissible to be semi-creative with a street stock body; however, the front, the rear, the roof and the windshield angles must be relatively close to matching that car body.  No mixing and matching of car bodies from front to rear.  Rear quarter panels must remain relatively close to that of stock body measurements.  No cars will have any extra rake built into their bodies from front to rear. 
No body panel or nose piece will be lower than 5” off the ground-measured with driver in the car.  Rub rails are allowed with no sharp edges or fasteners
A Lexan windshield is mandatory.  No rear window (except required on truck bodies) or front side window panels.  Opera windows are permissible.

 

SHOCKS AND SUSPENSION. 

 

No bump stops of any kind. 
Rear trailing arms can be OEM or manufactured.  Adjustable heims are permissible; however, the frame mounts and the rear end mounts will remain stock and in stock location.  All trailing arm lengths must be within 1” of a stock OEM trailing arm for that car.  
All remaining suspension parts will remain stock and be in stock location and be mounted in the stock angle with the exception of the front shocks which can be mounted outboard.  Rear springs and shocks must be stock appearing and in stock location.  Heims ends are allowed only on shock ends, rear trailing arms and in place of front tie rod ends.  Stock style sway bars in stock location in stock mounts to the frame.  Threaded rod adjustments on the A-frame are permissible.  Rear and/or front load bolts are allowable.  Aftermarket tubular upper A-Frames are allowed.  A-frames will have stock ball joints.  Upper A-Frame mounts may be modified and be within 1” of stock location. Lower control Arms must remain stock.
All Shocks will be steel and non-adjustable!  No canister shocks of any kind.  No bump stops of any kind!  No Schrader valves of any kind.  No coil binding. All shocks will be a nationally advertised shock and will not exceed a list price of $145 per shock. No leaf springs or three link suspensions.

Cast iron exhausts manifolds or headers are allowed with 3” maximum exhaust tubing.  The carburetor will be a single 2 or 4 barrel carburetor with a maximum 1” store bought adapter or spacer.  HEI style ignition only, no MSD style. 
OEM automatic or standard transmission; racing transmissions are not allowed. Minimum clutch size will be 7¼”.  Stock style OEM rear ends only; four link suspension only.  A steel 9” Ford is permissible with 4 link mount.  No quick change rear ends or aluminum rear end components of any kind.  A 2” inspection hole must be cut in all bell housings so the clutch can be easily seen.
