A local track is considering a pure stock/bomber class next year. I was curious about some of your rules in this class because they are having a rules meeting soon to decide if anyone is interested. Please give me some guidelines to go by such as wheelbase, wheels and tires,locked rearends,racing shocks and springs and so forth. THANKS

Our track runs a bomber class and averaged 45-50 cars a week. Great class to drive and watch. Our rules are very similar to racer 17j with a few differences, (we can run racing springs, shocks and powerglides) You can go to www.Brownstownspeedway.com and click on divisions, then bomber rules for the complete form.

Nov 10th at PIR. It is not for Milan but the rumor I heard Sat at Bargerton that Milan was going to get rid of the cruisers and go to this class. Haven't heard that as truth yet but who knows.

Bargerton was smooth and slick but not dusty like most tracks are on a day race. I let Dale drive mine and the pinion bearing went out on the rearend in hotlaps, didn't get to run it after that. I drove the 2x in street class and won both heat and feature but got dq'd because it wouldn't pull vacuum! I am planning to go Sat.afternoon and watch if it don't rain. Maybe Tracy will let me drive his again!! There were around 100-120 cars in all.

Personally my favorite pure stock cars were the one's I witnessed at Columbus Speedway in Mississippi. Like the 1st rules listed in this thread. Keep the tires skinny with a 75r, keep the wheels factory, no aluminum wheels, keep the two barrel carb and let em go at it. Don't allow any elaborate cages, 6 points should be plenty, no cage after the rear shock mounts and no cage in front of the firewall. Setup is the key. Real Bombers are cheap and fun. You would be surprised what type and brand of car that can be competive. This is the cheapest way to go racing. Don't let the track fall victem to guy's who want this or that to go faster, it only makes the class more expensive. If the car came with a motor, let-em run it. Cheap and fun, that's what Bombers are meant to be.

My wifes class runs at Electric City speedway in Great Falls Montana. its a fun class and a great place to learn and if you run a metric GM you can easily move up to the street stock class. ours is WISSOTA streets.
Problem is the promoter wants to keep the car count above 12 and doesn't want to make anyone mad so the rules get overlooked sometimes.
cars can be of any make or model but most use
chevy or ford. has to use same engine. nothign fancy can go on with motor but some do. running gear has to be stock but you can mess with springs and shocks. You can find stock springs that will work, but you need a spring rate tester. shocks mostly are those stock APPEARING shocks. We use weathermaster tires, any are ok just not a racing tire. they must be DOT approved. the promoter lets us use the old bart wheels that the street stock guys are throwing out cause they arn't stamped. when those dry up, its back to the steel wheels. 2 or 4 barrell carbs.
Its a fun class but the cost can get bad. Make sure your promoter ENFORCES the rules

The key to Detroit Iron classes is writing clear rules and enforcing them. For instance, "stock cam" well, General Motors made cams with more lift and duration than I run in my Sportsman! "Stock "springs--now how do you plan to enforce that? Racing is relative---if all the cars are turning aprox the same lap times, ya got yerself a race! I like 4 barrels. The internal engine components don't have to be light in order to make power. I'd write rules taht called for stock suspension parts in stock locations. Stock mounted shocks and springs. Six point cage with one front loop with TWO bars down to the frame. Go with aftermarket noses--the safety crew has less debris to pick up after the race. Call a part # on cyl heads (882 GM)there's only about a blue million of them around. 358 cid limit vacuume rules are great! c 6 or 350 turbo all gears and converter working. AND TECH them!!! Find ya some guy who likes racing and give him a coupla pit passes every Sat night in exchange for being tech. Just over that class---and run them first every week. They do wonders for the track surface. Have fun!! Eljojo

el thats pretty much what our rules are i disagree with the vac rule it's to much to deal with just keep it with a hydrolic cam smogger head and and cube limit that way a guy can do like i do every year i find an old pick up in the paper with a 350 in it then pull the motor and put a re ring kit and a cam in it thats it i have about 300 in all my motors they all are under 9-1 comp but they all don't have the samwe cast# head when you make it so you have to run a certin number it makes the price of them go up no mater how many there are around if i have then and you need then your gonna pay what i want or you don't race i like to stay away from that

I race pure stock at Thunder Mountain in Jacksonville/Rusk Texas. I think that our cars have gotten a little out of hand as far as whats allowed. We can run quick steer, 8" wheels, any offset, 60 series tires or the imca american racers, 4 bbl (stock). I dont know, it just seems like a lot for a beginneer class. I like the 7" wheels(and they better be factory too, no racing offsets) and 70 series tires. It really takes the motor out of the picture.

racer17j,
NO!! hahaha The "Black Hole is still there,I have a website uforacing.homestead.com and the Electric city speedway site is linked to mine thru "points", you may see a photo of the black hole
I have some neat photos of old racing at the speedway on my site too. There was a fellow killed that drove off that hole on a practice night a few years ago, suprising it has not been covered.
