Thanks Dennis and Rob. I dont have facebook so might have to use the girlfriend for that one.

Salem Ohio actually isnt that bad of a drive for me, might not be able to do a 1 day event but if they had a 2 day thing it would definitely be something to try and make

This is definitely a conversation that is subjective to what a person runs. Where as the OP says the limit should be a 4 link back half small tire, there are many with frame rails all the way back, stock type suspensions and small tires that will argue otherwise. One might say a back half is back seat rearward, really what difference does it make running the chassis 4 more ft to the firewall? If the weight is the same and the suspension is the same, what does it matter? If people believe a good stock type suspension is as good as a 4 link then tire size and weight should equal the class, but it doesnt seem to work that way. Personally we have all of them covered as we have a true back half big tire car, a 3/4 back half big or small tire and a full frame small tire car. And where as I do think a good stock type suspension can work very well, the adjustability of a 4 link cant be beat.

True back half should be permitted. Stock floor and suspension from B pillar forward. Tube chassis big tire only. IMHO

It is a 1 day event....I know 3 of the races will be on a Friday and 3 on Sunday..

But..... the 3 of the Friday grudge races will be followed by the DADs heads up series at Quaker....and the other 3 will follow the DADs heads up series..

So it is two different events ( 1 prepped 1 not) but on the same weekend..

The DADs event and rules are on the quaker city dragstrip website....the grudge event and rules I don't believe are posted yet.

I agree , SS or true back half only and a tire rule is all ya need for no prep...keep it simple.

Small tire
Stock type front suspension, no fiber/carbon bodies less it came that way, and small tires.. If you want more rules then that go class racing..

Big tire
No fiber/carbon bodies less it came that way and whatever tire you want..

stock style rear suspension rules are fine....as long as you drive a mustang. but what happens if you prefer a body style that came with leaf springs, or god forbid, irs??? a true back half has NO advantage over the modern mustang bolt in stuff.

IMO, a well thought out leaf spring car.....because of the way the suspension works, has just as good a setup as a Mustang for no prep. Call me crazy if you want.

Agreed, no prep is a different animal. The double frame rail 3/4 chassis can shed a couple hundred pounds mote than a true back half with stock floors and firewall. That is my issue. I personally wouldn't run a double framerail small tire car because there is zero flex and is harder to get down cleanly on no prel
