I thought UMP dropped the street stock rules. Where do you race?

We race in northern Illinois, the tracks are at Kankakee, Fairberry,LaSalle,etc.
UMP has a street stock built,and they are taking it along to the summer national races to try to get all the tracks to change to the new rules as to establish a national points system,so I was told.
I just picked up a car,and don"t want to make any changes to big before I see the proposed rules.
Thanks for the reply
Stretch

Ya, we race at Flora in Super Street. Our old track is Macon and the Summer Nationals will be there July the 4th. That would be a lot closer than Fairbury.

I bet we might have a good idea and that's OK. We just want to race with a fair set of rules, that we can go race with our friends and not worry about what to change.

I just got an e-mail from a friend that says, "It's a Pure Stock". Stock manifolds, certain casting stock heads, you get the idea. I tried UMP's phone and no one answered.

It would be a pure stock class. As for as UMP goes, people in he** want ice water.

Those rules look an awful lot like the IMCA Hobby Stock Rules.
