Default got a question

i have been out of the sport for about a year and a few months and i plain on attending the s.i.c this year here is my question before i had to take some time away i was one of the fastest drivers in my area and since then some of the guys i used to race with are faster and i havent had a chance to race yet to see if i am as fast as i was or worse or better but do you guys think it would be ok to race a sportman class or race the pro class like i have in the past. alot of the guys say i should and a few others said i would be sand bagging.

back when you were racing If you were sitting in top 10 at races I would run pro on your comeback since you are experienced it might be like night & day & would get you back on pace quicker & remove the rust faster.
Entering sportsmans might take you a longer process to re hone the skills you had or you might just put on a whopping on that class then it would look like you sandbagged it but that is your choice & how you approach it
looking to have fun run-sportsman
looking to return to some serious racing go pro

john greene along with a few others will be policing the sportsman class due to some people taking advantage of the sportsman class last year ...i mean if your times are up with pro times you will be moved up ...either way if you have to ask it might be a good idea to race pro ...kinda the riding a bicycle thing ...but i mean hey you may have lost your edge in a year ....you gotta make that call glad your coming it is gonna be off the hook good the layout is up on sgrid ...too bad i cant see it because im not paying for any message board

I know Denny and if he races in Sportsman at the club level then's he's definately baggin', but with his rust and no sponsor he may have a hard time at the S.I.C. in sportsmen because there are some baggers there and some really fast sportsman.
If Coty beats you by 2 or more laps at Dion's then run sportsman.
I predict he'll beat you by more than that but i'm just saying.

Run sportsman local to see how you do. They are some fast sportsman local and that will give you your answer.Don't worry what every one else thinks or says because somebody will always have something to say.
