Remember when, if someone wanted to go racing they got the rule book and built or bought a car that fit a certain class they wanted to race in. Now anyone can build something and have there own class to race. Why cant promoters just stick to and stop creating classes.

I would have liked to of scene a Ford v8 option. Hopefully this will workout for some guys to go racing. To bad I just purchased a Ford race engine for my car. Time will tell if it works out for the good.

Same thing happening everywhere. Divee up the classes more and more. Class 5 is even giving out separate prizes for guys with stock ecotechs. Next we give separate prizes for different size shocks, tires, etc. Too many classes if you ask me, but I a lot of guys want a better chance of getting a prize, so I don't blame the promoters. It's what a lot of the younger guys want, so we might as well get ready for more and more classes.

Come on wendell. Precepts Motorsports is trying to promote stock ecotecs in class 5 because that is literally what saved class 5. Yes it changed a class that was strictly highly modified air cooled engines but you can not argue that it has not saved 5. Don't knock them for being one of the most generous race teams in this sport for the sake of jumping on the crap talking band wagon. By the way why don't you come and race your 5 car? A big type 4 just won a $5,000 purse at rage at the river for the second year in a row. Yes it was LJ Kennedy so of course he won but still. Air-cooled Type 4's are competitive as ever if they stay together.

I think this is a great class By the way. Spec classes are the biggest classes in the sport now. It gives guys like myself an opportunity to race on a level playing field where talent gets more wins than money.
