Exclamation Throwin' down the guantlet

Hey ya'll,

Since we all agree that the Forum's cup race was so much fun, how's about a Bama vs. Georgia NASCAR event? I'll bet we could get Phil to host it in 2 seconds flat. We could have 3 classes:

1)Vintage NASCAR cars
2)1990's - early 2000's style cars
3)COT's

Or choose just one of the 3....

We could all build the cars then rotate racing them like a proxy race!!

Think about it and let's talk it up some more.

KIITS,
Lawrence

Smile well....

....you KNOW that I am up for this kind of action!! And I already have a couple cars to run in each class too. I would suggest box stock setups with tire truing and a 10%+/- weight rule; i.e. can't weigh less than 90% of stock or more than 110% of stock. Full interiors as provided by the manufacturer. My only "hang-up" would be my schedule as I am home so rarely anymore.....last weekend was only the second weekend at home in 2009.

Yeah, that really bites being home twice in the first 3 months Jay. That is one of the main reasons I wanted us all to talk it up. I had no doubt whatsoever that you had a few stockers to run. I like the rules to...except maybe rear tires and guideblade of choice.

Personally, I like the full interior concept and your weight rule suggestion. I can't help but think this would be one fun event. Thanks for the input Jay. Stay safe in Louisvile.

KIITS,
Lawrence

Default Road trip

I remember Jay mentioning tracks up where he is. I smell a road trip, the 'Ville is only 6 hours away... I do love going to Kentucky.

Smile Bullitt Speedway....

....just south of Louisville, runs COTs every Friday night and vintage Scaley TransAm and vintage Nascar on Saturday afternoons. Good turnout of 12-16 racers and a great group of folks, lots of fun, easy rules. Come on up. Also home of the Derby City Shootout over the July 4 weekend, a great slot car event, plenty of track time and events and FREE food!!!!
