Was nice to see all the stars of class 5. I was really impressed with everyone's team work attitude and common-good type goals. Super stoked to be back in Class 5, and willing to help with whatever you guys need with the coalition. Cody was the Rockstar of the meeting, so awesome to have a race org guy show up and provide insight.

I asked this on the FB group, but my family is potentially looking to get into a 5-open. Modern car with a sequential trans is strongly preferred, let me know what you got!

We have Herbie for sale. It’s a 2015 crumco. There’s an add for it here in the classifieds

Ok, he was looking for used parts for the Grinch.
Where was Zak. He is always entertaining.

Ben lets face it you're the star of the show in last weekends race. Maybe I'll muster up the discipline to give the play by play this weekend. I'm just enjoying life without working from 5am to 8-10pm 7 days a week, my family, and business that is getting the attention it needs. Off road racing is a drug and the last 2 weeks was a black tar heroin bender.

best post iv seen yet

Eriks been helping polish and update the C5C website and has been a great shot in the arm. Here are the discussions from the meeting for 2021:


Coalition Rules
The rules are voted on annually. If you own a car, and have raced, or plan to race an entire season you are eligible to vote. No other team members, co dogs, or partners get to vote. Just the primary owner of the car. The last rule revision was made on 10/17/2020 by the majority vote and will stay in effect through the entire 2021 series;

Format Rules:

Race Format:
4 races with a throw-out race. Your top 3 race results will be used for year end points calculation.

Race Selection: BITD Parker 425 : Jan. 16th, SNORE Battle at Primm : March 27th-28th, MORE Lucerne : June 5th. MORE Lucerne : Sept. 25th

The Points: Points are based on total entries at a given race. Highest points driver at end of year wins.

Car Rules:

Wheelbase:
105.5″ or less (total between both sides must not exceed 211″), top 3 finishers to be verified at every coalition race.

Fuel Type: 91 or E85, no race fuel or alternative blends, top 3 finishers to be verified at every coalition race.

Engine Displacement & Modifications: 2,500cc or less, top 3 finishers to be verified at every coalition race.
Exemptions: 1) VW air-cooled (including Type 1 & 4) engines may have unlimited displacement, 2) All rebuilds must use stock parts belonging to that displacement engine. Any boring from 2.4 to 2.5 will not be legal, even if with stock parts. No alterations other then a rebuild may be performed. This includes changing pistons, rods, heads, injectors, or any other component for an aftermarket or other style GM part to gain an advantage. Additionally, machining/honing of valve ports, heads, and cylinders to gain HP is not allowed.

#522 is coming along, just got it back from the best in the biz, Straight Edge out of Canyon Lake CA. Time for some graphics, I told Steve I got the paint, you get the graphics, good thing he owns a sign company!

Team Train Wreck is like team skittles all grown up.

Haha, I guess Team Trainwreck is the grown up Team Skittles. Here's a pic of Team Skittles back in 2010. That's the Grinch behind us. Whatever the latest name is, racing in the dez sure is a blast
