We have the catch fences and manufacturers making more of these cars these days, lets bring the insanity back!
Are you volunteering to marshal them?

In 2014 the Stock Spec 13.5 class (Oval) had the most entries, 73 in all. There was an H-Main scheduled for Stock Spec 13.5, but all 3 H-Main drivers did not show! The G-Main for Stock Spec 13.5 had 9 of 10 drivers start.

The Touring Stock 17.5 class (Road Crs.) had the 2nd most entries, 69 in all. The G-Main for Touring Stock 17.5 had 6 out of 9 drivers start their race.

I predict the same 2 classes will be the biggest once again in 2015. I also predict that Formula One will almost double in entries since CRC, Xray and PROTOform are now supporting the F1 class. 2014 saw 18 F1 cars, I believe we will see 34 F1 entries in 2015.

They just make sure your motor is a legal motor. Battery voltage cant be over 8.4 and the temp of the battery has to be room temp.

OH YES - the showdown is getting warmed up.
Teach vs Perez --- it is going to be epic.

I don't have an exact link, but you're going to have to turn left over at http://www.hobbytalk.com/bbs1/forumdisplay.php?f=105

Better yet the snowbirds own site links to the rules-
SK CAR 17.5

Open tires. SK-Kar rules http://www.hobbytalk.com/bbs1/showthread.php?t=398982
