What if a junior finishes 5th in superstock and another one gets second in stock. How would you compare that?

That is a perfect class lineup. A lot like the euro touring series in the touring aspect.

No 17.5 Sportsman foam?

Can you run 17.5 Sportsman Stock Touring Car (rubber tire) and still be able to run 13.5 Expert Super Stock Touring Car (foam tire)?

You know . . . I thought the same thing. Oh well, I guess Chicky is right. Foam will only die if everyone lets it.

Wow.. you guys... LOL

first of all, check out the meeting minutes as posted on the website. There are bullet points that describe the sportsman stock rules for 2010.

True. If you run sportsman stock, you cannot run Expert SS or Open Mod. That means.. if you enter stock, thats all you get. Stock. If you enter Expert SS or Open Mod, you can run both of them. IF YOU HAVE WON A STOCK NATIONAL in the previous five years, you can't run stock. IF YOU HAVE ANY SPONSORS, you can't run stock.

False. ROAR is not killing foam tires. There is a foam class in Expert SS and Open mod in TC. What is so hard to support in this.. ROAR is doing what should have been done years ago.. create a class for stock racers to compete and have a chance at the title.

True. Sportsman stock is rubber tire only.

True. No sponsors in Sportsman stock. Its easier to manage it than you might expect. Sanctions to the racer and the sponsor if a racer is caught violating this very simple rule.


I think this is a good move. And, to be quite honest, its the first step of reorganizing the class system. One step at a time....

Oh, and yes, I think Masters and Juniors definately needs to be looked at, seriously. For 2010, if the host wants to offer it, it will be business as usual the way the classes are built as we have not determined the most fair way to present the class. Personally, I think we could do a Junior ranking in the Sportsman Stock TC class and a Masters in the Expert SS TC class. Highest finisher in those classes gets the title(s)....... Just my view.

Dawn.. I think what some are saying is that there is only "1" Foam TC class 13.5..There is NO Mod foam listed. Maybe they need a 17.5 Expert class also-(I bet 17.5 would bring the venue and ROAR a added 30+ enteries)...
