WOOT!! An extra $80 in my paypal account. Good move indeed.

I planned to run 17.5 rubber since I have no sponsor or mad wheelsmanship but I am willing to see a lot of air time in 13.5 foam as a 2nd class since there is no 17.5 foam offering.

I guess I will learn how to knit or drive 7 miles back to the house and taking a nap between heats.

Why should stock be limited to only stock and no SS? I could see saying if you run stock no mod and if you run mod no stock. The no sponsor rule would keep the real fast guys out of stock that might try to squeak in....

13.5 Expert Super Stock Touring Car (foam tire)
13.5 Expert Super Stock World GT
How is having one foam class not killing Foam TC?

As Tag said a 17.5 foam TC class would be nice.

Dawn please consider opening up the 13.5sedan FOAM class to all, it will allow more entries for the week... and now as considered a "Sportsman" racer, (No sponsors) these racers will be spectating more rather than racing.....or please offer sportsman sedan foam.......

Thanks,
It means that you have to remove that big "HPI RACING" sticker from the side of your car in order to run 17.5 Rubber. I know . . . it's silly.

Don't bother using anything but those headlight and grill stickers from your protoform sticker sheet either. Someone might misinterpret this as a sponsor. lol
