Hi guys and ladies, I'm from Delevan, NY and will be racing at Freedom Raceway. Which is a 1/3 mile medium banked dirt/clay oval. This will be our rookie season at any level of racing, but just so you know, we will be racing in the street stock class at this track on friday nights. We have a 74 chevelle which was raced on asphalt in the past. Our minimum weight requirement is 2900 lbs. No jacking bolts, we can run aftermarket springs, 361 cu. in. max in a GM
car, 2 barrel rochester carb, stock distributor, .450 lift in the cam, max. Tires are 15" Cambridge recaps. Me and my husband and brother are all fairly new to the setup aspect of this game, so anyone that is willing to help, it would be greatly appreciated. If you would like to know we start racing at the end of April, but if you would like to send me what you would for basic setup (i.e., tire pressure, spring rate, etc.) please feel free to contact me.

Kim, I would call the promoter and ask him what driver in your class would be good to call for this info. good advice can go a long way and the guy should be happy to get you off to a good start that way you are more likely to be safe on the track and easier to race with. I am located in western NY and build racing powerglides for some racers at freedom. If you have any questions feel free to call me. Precision Transmission Don 585-538-6247

I run sportsman street stock at bluegrass speedway in bardstown Kentucky. For my springs LF 1000 LL 300 RF 1200 RR 250.... Tires and tire pressure i run 255/70/15 all the way around the car with an 2" offset wheel on the left rear. Tire pressure LF 16 LR 16 RF 18 RR 18.. I know to some the pressure sounds alittle weird but I have never had a car push or be tight with these pressures.
