Finally 🤟🏻 Been a long time coming. Now the older 6100 trucks that aren’t competitive with the big money trucks have a home. Not sure when this was changed, but it’s there now. Finally a cheap reliable v8 power plant option that can keep people racing and not having to do exotic drivetrains. Just a simple engine and th400 and you can be fast 🤔

I think this is great. Good for BItD. The 7200 has been stagnant and there has yet to be a place for older 6100. The 6800 thing didn’t get the traction.

i didn’t read the rules but what about width? I thought 7200 was limited to like 88” or something

What is the suspension travel limit? This looks like an awesome decision. Now leave it alone and let teams race. Don't change it. This makes for a good truck class structure, 7200, 6100, and TT.

I would hope the Honda would be grandfathered in.

Our truck is 88” so that would not work. So close. Haha
