what do you think about running full tube chassis 4 cylinder cars in the modified division with cars that still have the stock uni-bodies with stock bodies

we were tossing around the idea here at my track. i am from 35 raceway in frankfort ohio. we thought about it and wasnt sure about it til it came up at the tech meeting we have between the drivers and us. most of them didnt want it and a few were for it. their main complaint was the money factor. i thought it might be a good idea but we would have to equal out the rules for them or start another class. it would be like using the word "stock" in the word stockcar describing NASCAR racecars. it would actually be ridiculous to let them run and have that much performance advantage.

A neighbor of mine just bought a tube chassis a couple of months ago and is now looking for a place to run it. I'm sure he would give a vote for running it with you. I do agree that too much moneyis spent for no more than you can win. I thank you for the appology and I hope I didn't offend you.

Is there some way to even out the tube chassis cars with the stock body/chassis? Perhaps an increase of weight or something else easy to do and check? I'm sure the tube chassis cars and trucks want to be versatile enough to run at different tracks or in special events. It would be possible for them to convert their vehicles. Just a thought as it is tough to turn any racers away. As you say, this is a "Modified" Division.
