Josh, I hear ya. But, you have to see it is what rush and Fastrack have both Tryed to accomplish. They are controlling motor costs. Fastrack and RUSH both understand shock costs are out of line. I don't know because I don't look at there rule books. The BIGGEST area each sanctioning body can't control is chassis cost in the SLM.

It's hurting both series. Rush has come up with the mods and sprints because there is a ton of used equipment out there. Rocky, who started this thread, was hounded by officials because he was dominate. Rush can expand because we have the 3 major series in the tri state area. Fastrack does not and it hurts them.

You've seen some big SLM teams closing shop. My opinion is they spend a ton of money but these cars of today need more. Many of the top lucas and WoO guys haven't forgot how to drive. They just cann't get a handle on what these new cars need to get around the track. So what do they do ? Spend 40K on a new xr-1.

Rush and Fastrack. Look what your champions are unloading, how does the entry level or small team compete ? They can't!

Rocky, you started this and got a lot of folks thinking about your ideas.  Ain't it about time you came back in and explain who's ideas are good and why other ideas are not good?   Up front I figure my ideas are no good.

At the Mod Tour banquet last night the new owner of Mercer Raceway Park said they will be running 602 sportsman modifieds under Fastrack sanctioning in 2019.

I have a question about the news from Mercer Raceway Park. Could this 602 modified division be,  IMCA style Modifieds and NOT DIRTCAR Northeast style modifieds?
