Seen posted on whowon.com IMCA is allowing the 400 block through 2006. The guy says he saw it on IMCA's site on Feb 8. I looked yesterday and didn't see it. Is this true? What gives? Can't IMCA make up their minds? Don't do this to me, I'm easily confused!

Atompunk this was on the IMCA site last week? But you are right it is no longer on the website? So I don't what the H#$L is going on?

Copied directly from IMCA website.

400 blocks OK for I.M.C.A. Stocks through 2006 season
VINTON, Iowa (Feb. 8) – 400 blocks will be allowed in the I.M.C.A. Sunoco Stock Car division through the 2005 and 2006 race seasons.
The sanctioning body had announced last month that 2005 engine rules for the Modified, Stock and Hobby Stock classes would not be changed in 2006. Rules published previously for the Stocks stated that no 400 blocks would be allowed after Jan. 1 next year.
Instead, the 400 blocks will be illegal for the class as of Jan. 1, 2007.

Just don't sell off your 400 stuff yet. Post in the IMCA room? Where? BigDaddy's right, rules on IMCA site still say no 400s after 1-1-06.

I just found this on the imca website. They just must not have updated the rules yet.

I.M.C.A. locks engine rules through 2006
VINTON, Iowa (Jan. 19) – The same engine rules announced this season for I.M.C.A.’s Modified, Stock Car and Hobby Stocks will be in effect for the 2006 race season.
“In effect, we’re putting a lock on our engine rules,” I.M.C.A. Vice President of Operations Brett Root said. “While reserving the right to address any new products that come out, we will not take away anything that is allowed now.”
Most of the changes made in recent seasons have been clarifications that either close loopholes or address performance and costs.
Economic and competitive factors, as well as the number of engine claims made in the Modified, Stock and Hobby classes, also figured in those changes.
“I.M.C.A. has had to deal with issues in the engine rules for each class the last two or three years,” Root said. “We believe that we have addressed all those issues. Member drivers in the Modified, Stock Car or Hobby Stock divisions who build or buy engines which are legal today can be confident that those engines will be legal in 2006.”
“We do not want our members to think we are shooting from the hip when we announce rules every November,” he added. “The freedoms and resourcefulness we allow in buidling engines is a trade-off for willingness by the driver to sell if and when they are claimed.”
