Next year, is there a possibility of adding an outlaw 8.5 class to the line-up at shootouts?

Well, no ladder bars and no turbos are allowed in mean street. So i figure you add a class that allows either of those small tire cars (26x8.5). Make as little of rules in the class as possssible since they dont get followed as is in a couple of classes. Maybe some of the mean street guys would step up and try it out. Same thing as the "small tire in the backwoods" race just make a class out of it.

This sounds like a good idea. There are a good number of cars locally that are just outside the rules of some of the regualr shootout classes for one reason or another so having a small tire class that is pretty much run what you brung on a small tire sounds interesting and would help the car count and be a good show for the spectators also.

The VAMP series is going away next year Dave Hight has decided to take a break so we decided to start a group called MW8.5RA(Midwest 8.5 Racers Association) to continue on with our 8.5 class we have going up here in Kansas City area. We kept it a plate class but added some NA and boosted combo rules with some basic weights. Pretty open rules but some limits to try and keep it from being ridiculous. Anyways you can check us out on Facebook and we have a section on http://www.purposebuilt.org. We are in talks with all the tracks and hoping to grow this type of racing in the midwest. I've included the rules below if you wanna check out. Thanks for looking! Chris
