There will be 6.00 index class at Sunshine Dragstrip on Wednesday May 12th. There will be two qualifying sessions with the first round at 6:30 PM, round two will be at 7:30 PM, times are approximate. Eliminations should start about 8:30. At this time the class with run an 8 car qualified field with a $50 tech card. Purse will be 100% payout, 70%-30% split for winner and runner up, semi’s $50.00. This is a new class we are trying out here, if you are interested in sponsoring please contact Chevelle Rob: [email protected]

This class is designed with the idea of street looking cars with limited lettering/decals and these are the preliminary rules adapted from last years ORSCA rules and the ODRA with some minor modifications, some of which were discussed at the divers meeting we had last week. Racer turnout and input will be taken into consideration for any future changes, just please keep in mind the intent and direction we would like this to go. In keeping with the 6.50 and 7.50 index classes already run at Sunshine this is an effort to open up the rules a bit to allow some backhalf cars a place to come race and have some fun.

6.00 Index

Rob as of right now I have nothing to race with in this class but it says stock front suspension. I'm thinking about converting my Falcon over to a Mustang II or a strut front end to fit a 460 in there. Plus get rid of all them steering linkage but will still be on Leaf springs and cal trac. I know some class aloud older cars to do this conversion?
