You run 3 a mains and the average of those produces the winner

Not to knock Big Dog's answer, but it's not an average. It's a 3 race point series with your top two races being counted. Here's the definition from the ROAR rules.... although this isn't a Roar race, this is the same system... (except ROAR triple A Mains are 5 min mains where the Midwest race is three 7 min mains)

"12.3.7.3 The final results of a triple A-Main event will be decided by a point system based on ten (10) points for the winner of each individual Main on down to one (1) point for the tenth placed finisher in each individual Main. The total of each driver’s best two (2) out of three (3) Mains points will count. The tiebreaker will be the total laps and times of
the best two (2) Mains which were counted."

Does the club recognize the 13.5 as a stock motor as opposed to the 17.5?
I may be able to run some races this winter over at CRCRC (including the Champs) and wanted to bring the right set up for stock.

Thanks...........

Fred, those rules pertain to the Midwest Champs race. I'm not sure what they are doing for their regular club races. I think they were running 17.5 last year but I could be wrong. There's a couple C-bus regs on here and I'm sure they'll jump in on this.

I will guess they run by the same rules for the weekly races.
I am not connected to CRCRC, just trying to help a fellow RC'r out.

Yes, Scott54 your answer is the correct answer. I kind of summed it up in one sentence.
