So someone who has won a Mod championship has more right to run Superstock than someone who has won a Stock championship? If that is what the rules currently say, than they need to be addressed ASAP.
This is the way I view it as well as some people at ROAR. But those people had to talk to their other people to come up with a decision of the rule. Still waiting on that

Not sure what you are saying.....

ONLY AT A NATIONAL EVENT....

1. So do you feel a Mod National Champ should be allowed to run a 17.5 class, if they have not won or placed 2nd in the past 5 years (Paully, Ralph, etc...)?

2. So do you feel that a 13.5 National Camp should be allowed to run a 17.5 class, if they have not won or placed 2nd in the past 5 years?

Looks to me like rule technicalities are of importance within this debate.

13.5 is not a core class, it is an option... 17.5 and Mod are core....

12.2.8 Any driver who finishes in the top 20% (rounded up) of any Modified National will be barred from entering any Stock National class for the next year.

Good point. Seems to me that ROAR is the center of many controversial topics as of late.

So if your local track only races 17.5 you are not allowed to race the class your race 99% of the year. That does not make much sence.

It only applies to the national events... not a rule for local tracks....

I see a new t shirt slogan for this race:

"I went to horsham, and all I got was this lousy t shirt that said I'm too good for stock"

First person on line to buy one.

these t-shirts will sell out quickly
sorry, i couldn't help myself

guys - if you didn't know the ROAR rules prior to signing up that is unfortunately, but you can ask for a refund. since we are at max capacity, i'd suspect there are other folks who wanna will your place.
