Galesburg Speedway - 2018 Outlaw Burg 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.

 


TIRES.  Tires will be the Hoosier 790’s or 850’s.  Tire soaking and/or any other type of tire tempering is prohibited.  Some tracks will allow the same DOT tires run on the Stock FWDs to be used with the Outlaw FWD’s –Galesburg does not.

 

BODY. 

 

Complete stock appearing bodies.
All exterior body panels will remain stock appearing front to rear; however, fabrication of doors, the bottom section of fenders and quarters, the deck lids and rockers is permissible.  The basic shell of the car including the top, B & C pillars, windshield posts, the firewall and floor board, the top portion of the quarter panels and the front and rear cowl area between the sides of the car will remain stock width and intact.  Added ground effects or skirts are allowable.   Have some shape to your body sides; a look alike Outlaw Super Late Model will cost you up to 100 pounds of added weight.  An aftermarket mini stock nose or tail piece is allowed when mounted in stock fashion.  No manufactured or aftermarket Late Model style wedge nose pieces. 
A maximum 4” tall spoiler is permissible.  It must be made of clear material and no wider than the stock body width.
A full Lexan windshield is required; all glass must be removed.  No back or side Lexan windows permitted.  Rub rails are allowable when securely mounted with carriage bolts and smooth ends.
Bumpers may be stock or tubular.  All cars must have a cable or chain for a wrecker to use.
No two seat coupes, convertibles, trucks, mid-engine, turbo or super chargers, multi carburetors, rotary or Cosworth engines.  Stock transmissions are required for the make/model/year. Two door sport coupes (Hondas Acuras, Nissans, Neons) and a few other cars with the variable valve timing may be subject to added ballast when the car clearly outclasses the existing field.  This is a judgment call designed solely to keep a fair and level class of racing.

 

 


ENGINES, FUEL TANKS AND EXHAUST. 


Open to most 4 or 6 cylinder FWD cars.
Manual or automatic transmissions are permissible.
Factory fuel injection is required. 
All exhaust systems will exit below the car; the maximum exhaust tubing size is 2.5”.  
If the stock gas tank is located ahead of the rear axle, it may remain in place as is.  Double check the gas lines and the tank straps, replace them if they are worn.  All stock tanks located behind the rear end must be replaced and relocated in the forward area of the trunk.  Drivers may use a stock tank that is in good condition or an 8-gallon or a smaller racing approved fuel cell.  All external tanks must have a metal frame to hold the tank in place and must be strapped in place securely.  Looping a few lengths of plumbers’ strap is not sufficient.  If the tank is in the trunk area, the entire rear firewall must be patched with sheet metal so that none of the trunk area is visible from inside the driver’s cockpit. All aftermarket fuel pumps are required to have a kill switch for fuel pump shut off located in  plain sight in the window opening behind the driver.

 

WHEELS. 

 

Stock wheels or 7” wide safety wheels.
Maximum tread width is 75”.
Oversized 1” lug nuts are required.
All wheel weights must be removed from both the inside and outside of all wheels.
Steel safety wheels must comply with the measurements on the drawing:

 

COCKPIT. 

 

Full stock steel floorboard and front firewall.  All holes in the floorboard and front firewall must be covered securely with sheet metal.  Both front and rear bumpers must be strapped or chained to the frame to prevent dragging.
An aluminum racing seat is required. Seats must be professionally mounted with the back of the seat secured to the horizontal back bar of the roll cage.


   
STEERING AND SUSPENSION. 

 

All steering and suspension will remain stock appearing, front-to-rear and side-to-side.  Drivers may have a quick release steering wheel for safety and may replace a stock steering column with a collapsible column for safety.  A toe clip on the gas pedal is highly recommended.
All struts/shocks will be stock steel with no adjustable strut valving of any kind.  Slip on coil over sleeves are allowable; threaded body struts or adjustable struts are prohibited.  

 

SAFETY.

 

Radiator support may be built rather than using the stock core support. 1¾” round tubing maximum; no heavy square tubing or channel.   Front and rear hoops are allowed for safety. 
All doors must be bolted, welded or chained shut.
The rear support bars may extend rearward from the top of the cage behind the driver, angling down to the rear of the trunk area.  Two bars may extend back from the middle section of the back hoop rearward. No bars may extend through the rear of the trunk area.  Drivers may have an X between the two rear diagonal bars.  Rear bars will be a maximum of 1¾” round or square tubing. The rear strut towers may be supported.
All mirrors, upholstery, insulation inside and under the hood, carpet, tail lights and headlights, all loose trim on the exterior of the body, trailer hitches, and aftermarket add-ons must be removed from the car.  Any combustible material in the driver’s cockpit area must be removed. 
The original hood and trunk latches must be removed and replaced with a quick release hood pin system. Any hatchback must be solidly welded or bolted shut.
