Ozark Raceway Park is excited to announce a new shootout class for 2010 called "Mean Street". Mean Street will be an 1/8th mile, .400 Pro Tree, entry level small tire class with rules designed so a wide variety of cars can participate. The class is setup as a restricted single stage nitrous power adder, stock suspension, street car type class geared to be very basic, economical and "entry level".
The base tire for the class will be the popular 26x8.5 slick, with 275/50 radials and 26x10.5 ET Streets also allowed for automatic cars. Electronic aids will be kept to a minimum, with no MSD 7531, progressive controllers, or traction control devices allowed. Power will be restricted by allowing a maximum 750 Holley Carb, or OEM EFI 75mm throttle body and a single stage plate or nozzles before the throttle body on OEM EFI vehicles. Nitrous will be restricted with a maximum orifice solenoid of .093" allowed and a smaller .083 single jet restriction on big blocks.
To keep any one particular combination from walking away from the rest of the field, the rules are setup to restrict the nitrous jet on any car that runs .011 faster than the 6.00 class ET record. This and the other rules for the class should generate some very close and exciting racing, and it's a great class to get started in for those that want to run "Heads Up".
For a look at the full rules, visit the Mean Street Rules page at Ozark Raceway Park. There is also a huge forum thread going on for this topic in the Ozark Raceway Park forum if you are interested in discussing the class.
