PSA: I will have both a frame scope and drill in the tech line if you don’t want caught, don’t bring it!!!!

THERE ARE CHANGES MADE PLEASE READ THE CHANGES BELOW DON’T ABUSE THEM OR YOU WON’T RUN!!! THIS IS LIKELY TO BE THE LAST SHOW OF 2020, SO LETS MAKE IT A GREAT ONE!!!!

Amendment to Brownstown 2020 Clean up rules:
Firstly due to an issue with this happening at the last demo, ABSOLUTELY NO WELDING AFTER TECH!!! I WILL have someone walking around checking that this is not happening throughout the day, if it happens you will be immediately disqualified, there will be NO REFUND OF ANY SORT AND YOU WILL NOT RUN!!!! The only thing that should be happening after you get a stick is fluids checked, batterys tightened and your chin strap being tightened!!!

Semi Stock Cars:
1.) One 4″X6″X1/4″ flat plate per frame rail to aid in mounting the front bumper. This is strictly to aid in keeping your bumpers on, I do not want to be picking up bumpers off the track, so weld them on good. If you abuse this rule you will cut the entire plate off no questions asked.
2.) All fresh and pre ran cars are allowed to either have a 1″ tall steel body spacer OR you may run the factory rubber spacer and REMOVE the steel inner from the rubber puck, the rubber puck MUST still be used between the body and frame. This is being done to better even the playing field for cars that are already built and have ran and cars that are part way through the build and are too far to turn back on their build by removing the body.
3.) ALL cars will be allowed plates immediately.
FRESH cars are allowed 6 total plates 4X4″X1/4″.
PRE- RAN cars are allowed 10 total plates 4″X4″X1/4″.
You are allowed to bend, fold, and form these plates any way you see fit but all patches must remain on the OUTSIDE of the frame. If you cut your patch plate, you lose what you cut, one plate cannot be turned into more than just one plate. NONE of these plates should be inside of your frame!! IF YOU ARE CAUGHT WITH PLATE INSIDE YOUR FRAME YOU WILL BE LOADED NO QUESTIONS ASKED, NO CHANCE TO CUT SO DON’T DO IT!!!
4.) Core support spacer may be changed to a 6″ spacer!!
5.) Any work done to your car after tech other than unlimited #9 wire between the firewall and bank bumper will be cause for disqualification if you are in the money!!!!! In other words I don’t want to walk through the pits and see your welders fired up and going after tech!!!
6.) TOP 3 CARS WILL BE RE-TECHED POST DEMO SO DRIVERS STAY BY YOUR CARS, TELL YOUR CREW TO STAY BACK, I WILL NOT TOLERATE ANYONE BUT THE DRIVERS AND MY CREW ON THE TRACK!!!!!

Minis:
1.) Pre ran cars are allowed 10-4x4x1/4″ patches
2.) I will allow a simple header protector, dont get overly creative, just protect your investment. This is NOT the go ahead to create a kicker for the firewall, so again DON’T get creative!
3) I will allow one 3/8″ chain one the drivers side and one on the passenger side with 2 links welded to the unibody, and 2 links welded to the sub frame in order to join the two together. Must run vertically, DO NOT ABUSE THIS OR YOU WILL LOSE IT!!!! I’M DOING THIS BECAUSE I HAD PROBABLY 90% OF YOU GUYS WITH THIS DONE, AND IT WAS REQUESTED, SO AGAIN DON’T ABUSE IT OR YOU LOSE IT!!!!

Mini Vans & Trucks
1.) Your allowed 10-4x4x1/4″ patch plates if pre ran
2.) You may chain your rear end down with 1 piece of 3/8″ on the driver’s and passenger side. Keep it simple, just get it chained

2.) Kickers may be ran flush up against the back of the a-arms, but MUST NOT BE WELDED TO THE A-ARMS!!!! WELDED TO THE FRAME ONLY!!!!
3.) I am going to allow any spindle, but your front bumper Must NOT exceed 30″ to the top of the front bumper, YES I AM GOING TO CHECK THIS WILL BE ABOUT THE ONLY THING CHECKED OTHER THAN SAFETY!!
4.) I am going to be LENIENT with this class on getting cars fixed, I want to see a good turn out on this class with how much plate your being allowed!!!

I WOULD RATHER ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS AND GIVE YOU A STICK AT THE TRACK THAN YOU NOT ASK AND I LOAD YOU BECAUSE YOU GOT CARRIED AWAY!!!!
