Anything in particular?
Pro Outlaw is just like it said, 150" max wheelbase, any motor any fuel.

Pro Mod, full body vehicles, no altereds or dragsters, any motor any fuel.

Super Mod, full body vehicles, no altereds or dragsters or bud body types. Must run at least 50% of the factory frame, 4 links OK, and must run at least 2 DOT tires.

Super Street, full body vehicles, no excessive gutting, must run full factory frame, no 4 links, ladder bar or other traction aids OK as long as they are used with the factory suspension, must run at least 2 DOT tires, No power adders.

Exhaust is not required in any of the classes, Super Mod and up should have 5 point harness, factory seat belts OK for Super Street.

I think that that pretty much covers what i am looking for is there going to be early registration?
Also you say DOT tires If they are cut is that ok also?

Yes, there will be early registration as soon as I get a chance to work up some forms. I'll be sure and let everyone know when they are available.
For anyone that might not know, when there was mud racing at the fair in the late '90s yet, they would draw 3,500+ spectators for an event. I fully expect the same kind of crowd for this race, so if you ever wanted to run in front of lots of people, this might be the time.
I want to make sure and thank Basil and Jason from Dads and Jasons mud runs for their help/advice on classes and stuff for this race, its been quite a while since I was involved in anything to do with mud and their help was great.
Also, cuts would count as a DOT tire.

Sounds great and with Jason and Basils help it should run smooth. Is there a truck count limit or will you be taking all who show?

There is no total truck count, we will take everyone that wants to run. However Pro Mod Truck, Super Mod and Super Street will be 16 or 32 truck fields for eliminations. However, every one will get at least 2 qualifying runs before we set those fields.

Any chance of putting a rock garden in along with a wall for the rock guys to show off their extreme sport?

OK, I'll take them 1 at a time.
Greg, the Pro Outlaw and Pro Mod Truck classes are Pro Light, the Super Mod, Super Street and Jr.s classes are all a Sportsman Light.
No Rock stuff, honestly we are gonna be pressed to get all the racing done in the time frame the fair wants it done in, and with the tractor pull track plus our track, I'm not sure how much room we would have anyway.
The surface is tilled dirt, it will be watered from time to time, but definetly not mud.

Why the "no power adders" in Super Street?

Daryl, we are trying to keep Super Street to a "street" driven type of class. I know a lot of guys spray, but there are just as many that don't, and it was one way to keep a distinction between the Super Street and Super Mod classes.
Just run it N/A in Super Street and put the bottle in for Super Mod, I think you'll do well in both classes.

Ok. Thanks for clarifying. I just didn't see that on the other forum, so I wondered if something changed.
Sounds like it'll be a really fun time!
