Just a start at the top of the hill would be great. That down hill stuff with a manual trany is just a pain in ther a** any way. Than most of the pull back mud would not affect the start line any where near as much. Part of the problem Sat. was the start line. It got so bad that the end of the class was starting in 10"-12" of mud.

we are plaining on pushing all the slop out of the hole take 6 to8 '' of sand off the starting line push that into the hole and have some sand brought in two build up a base again then push the slop back over that . hopfully there will be a good starting line and everyone is stating out flat with the pit instead of at a downward sloupe plaining on putting some more fencing up around starting line and put somemore dirt over in pit area so we can get the crowd back behind the innouncer stand

Maybe just leave about 1/2 the slop out altogether.

it seemed like the low horsepower rigs like the stock class and that big black chevy that could barely spin the tires went the furthest, maybe everyone should pull a plug wire.
