Why can,t we come up with a Nat. set of rules like i.m.c.a. but add some things. Have a Nat. ponits fund? I out here on the west coast and I have to change some thing to go racing at other tracks. I know why the promoters do it. Let me know what you guy's think.

Ya, we have tried here in Illinois to do the same thing. There are some promoters that agree something needs done. But there are still those out there that could care less. Just a support class, if you don't like it move up. Well for those promoters with that idea,"your killing your own track". Making racers mad to the point they leave or just quit racing all together. So good luck. Were not giving up here yet.

Street Stock rules in Illinois are so varied its just retarded. That's all I have to add.

Thank's for the input. I would think we could come up with a set of rules that everyone would be happy with and then take them to the promoters to agree with?.

It's to simple to make one set of rules for racing,if all tracks had the same rules the one with the biggest payoffs would draw the most cars,the tracks can't get togather because they all want to race on Friday or Saturday nite.We had a deal in the late'80s in Southern Indiana where 3 tracks had the same street stock rules,and raced on Fri.,Sat.,& Sunday nites.all the tracks were in a 45 mile radius of each other,with 2 of them about 15 miles apart.it was real neat,about half way thru the summer the Sunday nite track car count started falling off,by seasons end they only had around 15 cars showing up in the street stock class,but always had a decent field of late models.I think the tracks got togather and did'nt run their "specials"on the same nites.Only 1 of those tracks{Brownstown} has a weekly race now.another track was paved{charlestown}and that did'nt last to long,it sat idle for a long time,now it is a Motocross facility.the other track{Scottsburg}only does specials,Demo derbies,tractor pulls,& an enduro or 2.It takes a whole big bunch of work to run 3 times a week,and you better have a good supply of spare parts,and good racing luck to not get torn up all 3 nites!!I don't think a nationl series or point system would serve any purpose for these "support classes"of cars,the travel alone would cost a fortune.these classes were meant as beginner/get experience classes,not as "professional"racers.That is why you have the "pro touring series"that come to the local tracks!
