Jaclyn, do your kids and yourself a favor and start them out in the cruiser or hornet class, if racing is something your kids want to progress at, it maybe best to start them in a rear-wheel drive car. I say this only so they can learn on what every higher class car runs, you won't find any front wheel drive cars outside the hornet or cruiser divisions so really no reason to learn in one. Unfortunately the "street stock"(formally Hobby) is not a good beginner platform. Personally I think they will just get discouraged starting at that level, too many experienced drivers running to really make it where a total rookie could run without being leaned on or moved. That's a lot of un-needed stress that will take away from the fun. The streets are fast, and to run up front is a big investment, I am not saying it canít be done for a rookie to run with the front runners in the streets, I am just saying the odds slim. Personally I would find a descent running rear wheel drive car, V-6 or V-8, Chevys seem to be a good choice since parts are everywhere including at the track, and try the cruiserís at least while one is driving the other could be riding, they could take turns. Best class to start in, but thatís just my opinion.
