Update for the rules package for the Classic NASCAR class. The bodies for the class will be any 1/24 Revell-Monogram NASCAR
body that will fit the chassis. The year range is approximately from 1981-2007. The body trim rule stated no trimming of the body sides other than the sideskirt and front spoiler. Since there is a variation of body heights in the aforementioned year range, the minimum 1.850 height rule will be the standard. You can trim the bodies as needed. No raking of the body is allowed. Thanks for your cooperation.

Here are the final results of the 4.5 Flexi NASCAR Race.
1st - Gary Tipton              511.5 laps
2nd - Bob N. (Racerbob)   495.5 laps
3rd - Scary Gary              494.1 laps
4th - Turing John             485.1 laps
5th - Bill Bostic                455.4 laps
6th - Rico                        452.7 laps
7th - Bartman                  443.3 laps
8th - Herb                       441.3 laps
9th - Al                           430.5 laps
10th-Matt                        424.9 laps

The race at Tom's World was fast and furious. There was a mix of veteran and newer racers which was good to see.
There was some excellent side by side racing, cars flying through the air and some just plain old bad luck. The "B" main was won by "The Good Bob from Roseburg and he moved up to the "A" main which left Mortar Mike from Cottage Grove the winner. The "A" main was won by the masterful driving of Curtious Curt from Bend.. I will post pictures from the race and the full field rundown from both races if I can.
Thanks to Tom and Susan for being such great hosts.

I received an e-mail from a woman who has 3 tubs of Carrera Evolution track she wants to sell.
Her name is Hilliary Demary. Her e-mail is hidemary@aol.com.
You can either e-mail her or I can forward the pictures to you.
Bob N.

Hey Zack,
All the Monogram kits from that era are all about 1.850 plus or minus. You can radius the rear wheel wells for tire clearance and chin spoiler for ground clearance. A few of the kits have side skits on one side and that can be trimmed to match the other side. That is it.
Bob

Practice for the Classic NASCAR race will be Friday March 6th from 4-8pm. Parts will be available during the practice time.
