Tracks define divisions so differently. A pure stock at one track is a stock car at another, is a bomber at another...What is your definition of each?

OK Heres my take, Bombers are stripped of all performance parts, no hulling, safety items only, open diffs Pure stocks same except small VERY minor differences. Cruisers I see as being the same exactly as a bomber. All these cars should be able to run in the same race and no one class just walk off with the win. These guidlines are the norm in the central Texas (Waco, Bellmead, Killeen) Hope this helps Kenneth

So what are we? I mean, we are called pure stocks where we race, but we're far from pure. Big tires (late model), .040 over bore, 9 inch Ford rear end, world product heads, headers, etc. What is that in Texas or anywhere else?

In Il the tracks are different.
At one track I can race a Bommer at one , but if I go to another track I have to race in the street stock wich is the next division up.

The promoter at Bismark ND says he would like to classify them this way,"if you have new paint on your engine, you are a street, if the motor is cacked with grease, you're a bomber."

OK pinkracer, heres my best shot. I would have to call that car a hot stock. They are almost always camaros, 3300 lbs.,unlimited size on right front (most run rc4),362 cid,holleys allowed,some say yes to pop-ups,others no, blah-blah. I think you kinda get the point. We ALL raise h!@# about differt names and rules but cry about IMCA (I'M Claiming Again). I guess thats how it go's. Good luck and have a safe year, Kenneth

Sounds somewhat close...Monte Carlo, 3000lb minimum, 15" tires, flat top pistons, 350ci - 358 ci, or 400 - 408 ci. We don't have any sanctioning bodies here, so no claims. Most tracks have the same rules, but they are all called something different, I just wish they could come up with one name (not Pure Stocks) to lessen the confusion of going to other tracks & wondering if you're going to be legal.

Most that I have seen are on a cubic inch rule also, two barrel and some headers, some not, depends on the promoter's mood for the year. LOL
