you're right i think the reason is to have a place for the old latemodel chassis to go b-mod does the same thing it takes a outdated chassis and lets it be run again in a limited class it's really a good idea unless they do away with another class say streetstock, when these guys move up and try to run with an older latemodel chassis they get smoked and it's not fair.I watched a street stock class a while back and someone had a modified with a camaro body and it was a 2000 dirtworks! definitely not fair.

It is hard to get 25 guys to agree on anything as a group,so to develop a sanctioning body to run a outlaw street stock at a number of tracks would be a task. I like what Wissota classes have done where your points follow you track to track where Wissota is the sanctioning body. I would love to see more of this type of organized racing racing in street stock racing where you are able to take your car to different tracks and run the same rules as everyone else with enforcement of those rules. I think running at a number of different tracks,makes you a better racer,and teaches you and your team how to adapt to other race conditions.

Absolutly, Flatlander! The promoters want their cars to stay at HOME!Very few Gap cars are legal to run Tazwell and neither would be competitive @ Atomic! So what do ya do? None of those promoters would be willing to listen to ideas that might cause them to lose even one car on a given Saturday night.

We have working on that same thing here in IL. We have nearly 100 drivers signed up from IL and IN. We started calling ourselves C.A.R. Street Stocks. Central states Association of Racers. We have yet to get promoters to get things going. A couple of big name sponsers have agreed to help out. This idea of "unified" rules would help the class across the country. Like modifieds and late models, you could race anywhere.

one big thing that kills the outlaw classes if guys with the money to run the upper classes up don't for some reason want to i guess they think it's more fun to lap a guy with half as much a budget then to race with someone on the same. the one good thing here in iowa most tracks are either imca or run pretty much the same rules up untill they made the 350 carb rule in imca a guy could run 4 days a week within 120 miles. myslef if i was a promoter i would do it justy like that sure if you have odd ball rules it keeps low budget home town guys at your track but it keeps anybody form coming in and proving just how good your guys are

Look at the rules for Lubbock Motor Speedway for the big race on Oct 10-13. My friend is finishing a new outlaw S.S. to run there this weekend.
