I was wondering if any one out there was familar with wayne county (ohio)
I am building my first car out of a 1983 regal. track sise is about 3/8 I believe.
I sure would like to be able to hash things out as I go along so I dont build something I wont be able to run. So if any of you out there like to answer questions and give advice..Email me and let me know.
Remember: If it aint done on dirt.....
It just aint done!

Street stock world champiansjhip was awsome and a kentucky boy took home the 7500.00.

You said the street stock nationals were great!!! They were at Muskingum Co Speedway right?Well thats where i race,pure stock.Is your track simular to that track? If it is don't build your motor stock.Maximize it,keeping stock block,and intake.That is all they will check,"with a magenit".But on the set up.Tires were my biggest help,once i started to find things out myself.You need the RR tire set in as far as a rim will let ya go.With Cooper Cobra tires, P235 on the Left side, and P245 on the right.Air pressure is 24 to 28 lbs on R and 18 to 24 on L.Springs and shocks were the next thing i found out about.FR you will need a 1200lb or so.FL 1000lb or so.RR a 175lb spring,LR a 100 or 150,less then the right side.The springs can vary alittle in lb's but they are racing springs.Shocks,i ran gas,with a life time warrentary,until i found out to run a Oil filled shock with a 50/50% or 50/70%let off.These were hard to find,but they made a world of improvement.Before the oil shocks, my car with the heavy springs up front and loose one's in the rear would "Hobby Horse".I have a 87 Buick also.Hope this helps.

I'm not racing there, but the corners are really tight.

I suggest you figure out how to lift that left front like the late models do out there .

Seriously, good luck

Everything gordon3e says applies, Look at the rules, does it say "stock appearing" If so, use racing shocks and springs meant for cars such as yours. Performance bodies has a great line of shocks and springs that are stock appearing, but are for racing only. If you can get the car on some scales, try about 55% left 52-55% cross and 55-60% rear. If anyone has better numbers for a Pure stock, put em up here. I am trying to remember mine but race a different class now.
