Does anyone know if snore and score are going to change their rules to match BITD?

I believe there is a movement to change all of the rules to better accommodate the buggies and live axle trucks. The new BITD rules were not written with any input from any active Class 3000 owners or racers. The last time the class made the rules back in 2009 we had a meeting. It is difficult if not impossible to do that now, so we are hoping to gather a list of all of the class entries for the past three years from the race organizations to discuss the rules online/email/facetime whatever works with everyone's schedules. If you are a 3000 owner or racer, please send me a PM and I will pass it on to include you in on the meeting. Once there is a consensus on the rules, I think that SCORE, BITD, SNORE and MORE will follow the amendments.

Class 3000 will be back next year. Lots of fusion trucks in the works and soon to hit the dirt!

Turbo 4cyl 90" track mini TT is going to dominate.

I think with the economy being in question might have a bit to do with it. I know there will be some class 7s at V2R.

The key to maybe getting car/truck counts up in BITD races might be that the existing Class 3000 vehicles will be grandfathered in. If the class decides to implement the new engine packages in all of the series, existing cars and trucks can swap to the new motor and be competitive without changing their wheelbase. From what I hear, we are close to a consensus for a new set of rules for SCORE, SNORE and MORE and a few tweaks to the BITD rules that will work for everyone.
