There will be some rule changes for the 2013 season, will be
announced by the Banquet.
Payout has been posted on the schedule page.
Rule changes were announced, no. 1 being that Raceceivers will
be mandatory in 2012, no. 2. making the use of Quickchange
rearend optional for 2012 (rule to be reviewed at the end of
If q/c's are used, the drive shaft must be located in the center
of the chassis, the motor must be inside the chassis and have
operational clutch and starter, meet existing motor and weight
The race tech will continue to consist of measuring bore &
stroke and weighing, however, if the protest rule is applied the
part protested will be inspected, if determined NOT to be legal
it will be disqualified. The motor rules were made to discourage
the high cost of after mkt. internal parts, alcky conversion
was/is allowed to prolong motor life, not to gain an advantage
The 2011 rules are now posted
on the "RULES" pg. major change is the weight requirements for
cars using alcohol/methanol and ethanol, this change was made in
the effort to equalize the competition with cars on gas, a power
commander may also be used on gas fueled cars, they were already
legal on alcohol cars. The plan to go to an all gas class is not
feasible at this time, we need to increase the cars counts in
order to continue scheduling the 1/4 mile tracks which appear to
be less demanding on motors and equipment, I realize that any
rule and rule change will be not please everyone, I hope you
will consider that we are attempting to advance min sprint
racing in general as well as the MMSA.
