If Rob states they're still good, will it still be "bring your own shock oil", or will you have some "on hand"?

glad I didn't finish any higher at the IIC now I can still run 17.5 tc and beat on Tag. so since I finished 4th at the paved nats last year in stock do I have to run 10.5 12th? that could be interesting

of course that's based on convincing skeen to play hookie from work for one day.

This is the final say on this topic, disregard what has been posted before or is not updated on the rules page.

If you finished in the top 5 the last 5 years at the IIC, Snowbirds, Carpet nats, Indoor champs you have to run the pro class. If you finished 5th in 1/12stock but did not make the main in TC you still run pro in all classes and cannot run 17.5 rubber. The paved nats does not count.

When you send in your entry form and you sign up for the wrong class you will be emailed and moved to the correct class.

No, Masters does not count.

And you guys are making it harder than it really is.

Top 5 at a major carpet race in stock, you gotta run pro. Top 5 in SuperStock/13.5, chances are you're not going to be eligible either. Top 5 in Mod...umm, yeah.

The crux of this policy is this: We all can look at a list of drivers and pretty much know who should and shouldn't be running stock. It's been that way for years. There are very few drivers that might be iffy, and the Top 5 rule takes care of that. We had to make some sort of parameter, so we wouldn't constantly have to make "judgement calls" on everyone.

Besides, just barely missing the "cut" to be moved up to Pro isn't necessarily something to be proud of.

Last year I had a choice. I could've run stock but didn't, even though I knew there was a pretty good chance of winning the Slam. I ran the Pro class. Wes Lion did too. I know we're both glad that we did, as we both improved in a big way because of it.
