I've seen a bunch of guys over on the 4m board talking about creating a blanket set of rules to allow streets and Sportsman cars to be able to race at various tracks in the Indiana area. I'm building a Camaro which I'd like to take to several different tracks here in the SouthEast. What would you guys suggest I use as guidelines so that I'd be both eligeble to race and competitive at various different tracks. I'm thinking mose in terms of basic construction rather than gearing

We are running an Indiana street stock. They also run the same rules at a lot of tracks in Illinois. The only down side to this class it that the guys we are running aginst are so fast

Thanks for the reply. I really was hoping to start some discussion on this topic, but it never got going. I think the main reason is that there is such a variety of classes which are called "street stock."

what are some of your rules,we run what they call hobby,thunder,bomber,10" and 12" wheels,9"ford rearends,solid cams just about any carb.but each track around here has a little different rules,so you might be right at one track and a little illegal at others, lol

We race in Alabama and would love to have a set of rules that would apply to more than one track. The main thing where we race is tires. We can only run Goodyears at the track we race and most others don't have as strict of rules. And for the most part that only scratches the surface of the differences.

See? That's what I'm talking about! What you call a street, the track down the road calls a sportsman! And a few miles East it becomes a Superstock, but over there it's a Limited Late! I'm hoping to build a car which will be generic enough that I can take it to almost any track in the country and have a class to race it in. BUT I want to be competitive! Sooooooo...I'm thinking a Ford 9 inch,camel humps with a cast intake,a Quadrajet (with a two barrel Holley in the truck) log manifolds with pipes, stock appearing ignition, no screwjacks, stock mount shocks.
Is there a place for this car at your track? I'll mount up a set of street tires on 7" rims and a set of asphalt take offs on 10" rims---any suggestions?

I believe that the West Plains, Mo rules pretty well make a great street stock. those rules are also legal at Bebee, Batesville, Flippin, Malden, Harrisburg, and who knows where else. go to www.westplains-speedway.com and look up the rules. mostly its just about like everywhere else, except no weight jacks and 500cfm 2 barrel carb. My 2 cents.

do you think these tracks set there rules just a little bit different just to get people to set there cars up to run there,so they can't go any where else,so they can keep a good car count all the time? set down and look at how many people come with a street stock or a mini stock.the support classes pay most of the tracks bills,when a big latemodel show comes in there will be a lot of people come watch,but a very few come with the cars,but they go up on prices that the regulars have to pay to get in racing for the same money.

Rusty9cab, I raced in the Nat'l 100 (or tried to) last year. At first they said they were going to take 4 from the heats-I finished 4th, but the next morning my name was listed to run the consi. I started 8th and was in the transfer spot when the 4th place guy turned me around and the guy behind him removed both tires and one wheel from the drivers side! Y'll got some good guys running your wreckers and the most awesome flagman I've ever seen! I hope to be back next November. That was the first time I'd ever been called an "Enduro" car!

Eljojo, your right eams has some good guys working there, it has it's problems as does any track but hope to see you next year. DMA, yes I have heard of penton and am probably going to race there too next year if I can afford it. This will be only our second year running and want to race the car as much as possible. As for the Goodyears, we run Short Track Specials, I've never raced on the Hoosiers but I really do not like the Goodyear dirt tire.
