Gates open at 8am.

If you have a wristband already from the Meet and Greet you will drive right in on the right lane. Left lane will be for those needing to pay or pick up their bands.

Vendors can enter at 7am

If you have a wristband already from the Meet and Greet you will drive right in on the right lane, this is a very important piece of information.

So what would be the reasoning behind the 18” or larger wheel rule on the V8 super modified class? I have a very mild twin turbo 5th gen SS but just because it has 17” wheels on it, the car would be bumped up into the unlimited class where it would not be competitive whatsoever.

This event is one where most drive their cars so we have lot's of force inducted cars on street tires or drag radials. Cars running 17's and slicks are normally modded more and setup for racing.

The 18" wheel rule is also super easy to police without opening hoods and reviewing all the mods and it splits the class right down the middle every year, just like you see in this thread. There are lots of ways to class cars and it's never perfect for everyone but this rule hasn't changed since Fest 4 or 5 and it's worked very well. It's also easy for folks to swap tires if they want and run the class of their choice.

There's also Bracket racing and plenty of open racing. Also looking at a 5th Gen vs 6th Gen face off too. If you're running 10's you'll be very competitive in the unlimited class. I think 11.1 won super mod 2 years ago.

Yup... just stick your arm out the window, show off your pretty new wristband and we'll keep the right lane moving... Or at least that's the plan...

I can understand the rule being easy to enforce. The issue I have with it is that a 17” wheel does not take a major car change like say a 15” wheel. A 17 will bolt right on just like an 18 whereas a 15 takes a full conversion kit in order to fit which is where I personally think the wheel rule should be implemented instead. Strictly just my opinion which doesn’t carry much weight, I’m aware.

I would have been driving my car to the event on 17’s with a drag radial just as it goes down the track. I strongly disagree that a 10 second car would be competitive in the unlimited class considering I see a few cars listed that run bottom 9’s. But regardless, hope you ladies and gentlemen have fun at the event
