Helpful Reminder for Burg Stocks and Street StocksKevin England
Zoo/Burg Stocks – Get those tow straps/chains/hooks/cables on the front & back of your car! If a wrecker must tow your vehicle off the track, we want an easy and safe spot to quickly hook up to your car.
All Classes – all cars must have the “Protective Pouches” for their track furnished transponders to be placed in. Too many transponders are getting damaged due to the flames or hot liquid below the cars, thus no more plastic transponder brackets will be allowed. We will have pouches for sale at the track for $15 or Lane Automotive has them in stock as well.
Street Stock Rules Clarifications – Southwest Michigan’s Street Stock Class is arguably the raciest & most competitive class of cars in the Midwest. Thus, the competitiveness of our local drivers to be the best has brought upon some stretched rule interpretations. In order to keep this class from getting carried away, here are a couple black & white rules that will not be allowed:
• Slider Boxes on the frame for the lower rear trailing arms. These must be stock mounts in stock location as stated in the rules. No Slider boxes period…..top, bottom, front or rear!!
• Cutting of the Nose Piece -we allow a valance to be added to the bottom of the nose piece to get the bottom of the nose down to 5” off the ground…..but cutting the center of the nose piece & lowering the bottom of the nose piece down so the valance moves down towards the ground is not permitted, as is stated in the rules.
• Front Fenders raked too far down are not stock appearing. These will not be allowed.
• The rules clearly state which body parts must remain steel & which parts are allowed to be aluminum or fiberglass.
• Too much body rake – keep the bodies stock appearing as stated in the rules. The high bodies in the back will then make the factory tail pieces way too high off of the ground.
To remedy said infractions until they are changed will be the immediate removal of the rear spoiler. Your car will also add 100 extra lbs. of weight to the right side of your car. This 100 lbs. will show up on the scales as additional weight as well as right side weight (approx. 3.3% less left side weight on a 3100 lb. car)
