Mario, Please donít take this wrong and tell your Dad Hi for me.
Hobby/Streets in my book is just the hobby being car count filler for the street stocks. There is no way a hobby stock can run with a real street stock. To try to make a class that has been around with large car count and the same rules for many years run with a hand full of street stocks I just donít understand it. USC tried it and now back to the hobby rules they had for years. Hollywood Hills that got their rules from DRC Hobby Stock, you only had to make some small changes to run with USC Hobby Stocks. Still was a cost with going from 7Ē wheels 9.5Ē tires to 8Ē wheels and 11.5Ē tires not cheep. Donít think I have a problem with Street Stocks for I donít. I have a new car that is 3/4 finished that was going to be a Street Stock and had to stop working on it for the rules that keep changing. It is hard to be a car builder with rules changing sometime weeks before the season opens.
All I am trying to say here is when you have meeting think of what has been and has worked for many years. Donít try to kill the Hobby Stocks that has been a class in good standing for many years. I think what may behoove the people having this meeting, to try to look at all the Hobby Stock rules with in 500 miles of this track and try to head down a road that will build this class. Like taking rules from USC and not taking rules from two classes and building them into one class. Street Stocks is a great class but with X-Mod coming on I feel has put a hurt on the Street Stocks not the Hobby Stocks. Good Luck with your meeting and my Hobby Stock cars will head to where the rules fit my cars. What I look at for rules changes for this season 2012 is what I do in the season of 2013.
Side note, for S&S Racing as of today have plans to just run the Hobby Stock at USC and do some testing if it is okay on some new motor stuff with the sprint. In a wait and see on the safety of tracks with the sprints. As always good luck to everyone this season.
