Let's start the conversation for the 2015 season. What changes would you like to see? What rules need looked at, changed or added? Once again this year we had plenty of complaining so I'm sure there will be some great discussion and some great ideas for next year. We have talked about when the next meeting will be and it's looks like January again so everyone can get through the holidays before worrying about making a meeting. That should give everyone plenty of time to make any needed changes to their cars. Remember to keep it clean, no personal attacks and please add some reasoning to your ideas to help make your point. Thanks
First off, I would like to see us determine how the voting will be done on any new rule changes. I thought the online voting that was done two years ago, was the fairest way to do it. Everybody got to vote, not just a handful that showed up at the meeting. We are an organization and all members should have a say in rule changes, not just a few. Secondly, if rules are gonna be voted in, why aren't they enforced. I believe we said everyone should have four working brakes, but when the season rolled around, it wasn't enforced for the stock class. Never really got a good answer why. I would like to applaud the officials for cracking down on the over enforced front ends in the stock class.
Stock Class hoosiers.. there a dime a dozen and it would help keep the tracks from rutting out not everyone is going to run them but i think the more guys that would the better off we would be as far as track conditions the hoosier is not that expensive to begin with and they are still just a 4 ply nylon cored tire they cut just as easy as any other tire we can run in stock..

I agree with Jeremy. The hoosiers would save people money. There cheaper and there easy to find. I believe the track would also hold together a lot better throughout the race and not tare up as many cars as it does bouncing through the ruts.

How bout headers in the stock class. Part of my shoe melted cuz of the down manifolds. Reason we could never run them was ppl in the crowd couldn't tell cars apart from open and stock. Well now they can cuz of the bodies. And I think tall valve covers should be illegal. No reason for those unless ur running roller rockers.
I'm likely the only one this effects, but why not allow front wheel drives in stock? Yes, write the rules so someone doesn't bring a Neon, Caviler or some other toy car. As it is, a Mustang II with a 302 or a Pacer with a 401 can go. What I run is a full framed, American made, 5 passenger car, factory built with a V8. I will admit I am biased in this but, why not?

they will have to allow bead locks, cause if not the tire will peel off the rim which will cause rutting in the corners from the bead of the rim. if you cant run bead locks then there is no reason to allow hoosiers.

You don't need beadlocks for the tires to stay on the rim.... I've ran them plenty without beadlocks. You can find these tires all over dirt drivers and different groups on fb any circle track driver has piles of them.

I drove them corners the exact same as I do around here and never had a problem..... They were not much wider at all if any... If people want to run them that doesn't mean you have 2 if u don't want too!
So, if the reason to run Hoosiers is to keep from rutting the track, couldn't we just ban snow and mud tires and just allow p series street tires and accomplish the same thing? That way we don't have to deal with the running of beadlocks or not. I'm just talking stock here.
You know the open class is already ruined by first allowing box cars into them and now u wld like to see hoosiers in the stock class? The problem is we are not iowa and just look at how many drivers and cars quit because wanted to be like iowa with the box cars and the hoosier tires. Yes they do save the tack but in the stock class they are not going to do much more then add and add and add things, then sooner or later it will be were the open class was when we first started and the people coming into the sport wont want to get into it cause it will cost to much and the sport will die out completely. just my 2 cents worth on it
