I get asked this question all the time, I want to start racing off-road what class should I start out in? here is the answer that I give them. get a 2-1600 car a used one runs $12,000 to $20,000. it's the most competitive class in off road and the fastest you can go for the least amount of $$$ . some times I get this answer back, I want to drive a truck. I just tell them to get a taste of racing without spending a lot of $$$ do the 1600 first, then get a truck if you still want one. tell me what everyone thinks the best class to start racing in. be realistic
What do you mean when you put a 2-1600 or a 5-1600?
BP- I think it was one of the Class 6 guys who flew the thing, was it Stan Gilbert? Jim Pateli should know who it was. Tony- I have those issues, but no flat bed scannerso I just have to look at the pictures. It is funny how many racers came out of that area in the hey day, Rod Hall, Jim Fricker, The Minors, Venable, etc... One of my buddies grew up around there and said it was cool to see those guys racing their jeeps around the river bed before organized stuff started. They all had fun until Minor started spending the big bucks so he would always win! Is there anyone old enough here(I am not) that actually spent time at Halls Gas Station? Was it Chevron? Heard it always had cool stuff in the bays.
