The new body rule is what's in question here not what's underneath

If I read correctly on here one of the rules changes is to close up the back of the car. It's been proven time and time again during end of year races that a car with a closed back end cannot win against cars with an open back end. It totally takes away the ability for RUSH crate stock racers to go elsewhere and be successful unless they open up the back end. It's not trying to hurt stock racing, it's a simple business matter of grabbing your customers by the balls and twisting until they either give in or pass out.
Maybe it's what Lernerville crate stock drivers and owners asked for, for next year?
Maybe there's a lot of similar cars out there racing now and there's already a customer base in place to exploit? We all have to remember Crate racing is not about racing it's about selling parts and services to racers, potential racers and tracks. It's about putting your customers on tracks for no cost out of your pocket or at absolute minimal cost. Stan explained it to us all on here when he honestly said his customers are racers and tracks. It's not about racing it's about servicing and expanding your customer base.
Lernerville might just drop stocks and replace them with something else. Open Emods would be my choice there as much fun to watch as sprints, big blocks and lates. It would enhance the quality of the show at Lernerville not screw with it for the sake of feeding parts pedlars and suppliers.

I'll leave what I wrote. I just saw the 2020 reference and 2020 is a long way off. Ideas and things can change.

Yep... Im talking strictly appearance... I still like a stock car that looks as its title proclaims... cant imagine there arent impalas, Taurus, etc bodies in the junkyards around... I do understand the need for a stock car chassis for safety, performance, and available parts... I just like to see something resembling a factory car out there... again, I think its just a nostalgic thing for me

your right. these people need to get over it with this stock body b.s. there are no more. unless you want to spend 1200 on a body kit from performance body. to get hammered up

I believe racers would like them too
jeff Bronsishesky had a Camaro nose for a couple seasons and it always looked cool ! But those MD3 noses make suck a big difference ! ( at Pittsburgh anyways!)
you end up chasing a little more speed like you would naturally do !
Mandate a stock looking nose and outlaw the MD3 would not be such a big deal to make them look more like stock cars .
The point about " being " late models is that THEY WERE THE LATEMODELS of the 1970s and some of the 80s ..and still are the LATEST stock frame cars still racing !
what they call a " Late Model ' of today is Absolutely not a passenger car .... but a Race car ! and not the latest model passenger car the was the original meaning of the acronym !
but as I racer I would not mind a plastic Camry nose or Mustang or charger looking car ..
It would cost about the same or less for a plastic Camaro nose vs. a full kit MD3 nose ...
the body is another story .. but you put that nose on you will see a mustang or charger in your mind from the stands

I'm all for stock appearing cars. As addressed earlier it sets the cars apart from Late Model classes. As a driver who runs an MD3 wedge nose (came on the car when I bought it, so have just stuck with it) while aero dynamic, the MD3 bumpers are not meant for Stock cars. Personally I would prefer a stock style nose with a better reinforced bumper that lines up with the rear bumper of the other cars. I wasted two bumpers this year because they're designed to fold out of the way. They're not designed to be used as a chrome horn....Every now and then you need to let them know you're there.
