those boys down there aren't real happy with his "late model".  Well it certainly isn't that but he has more gimmicky tricks in that setup to artificially try to "act" like a late model then those other actual stock cars do....

 

He teched an illegal wheelbase on the 4th one but to be fair the whole top 5 was illegal on wheelbase being too short.

no you can't, that's what racing is all about, trying to get an edge.  And he didn't pass on the 4th win since they checked the wheelbases.  But none of the top 5 passed sooo....

The stock cars up here are a different animal than what they run down that way.

He's running a crate engine in a fab'd chassis. Those guys down there are running mostly if not all home built cars. Hagerstown big 1/2 is a perfect track for his motor and chassis combo.

Roy Anderson Race Cars are big there ARC, young boy setting next to me at the lucas race said the 19 had a new Hershey race engine to start the year$$$$ that's one reason they don't want the outsider there also the 58 told me the top 7 car had wheelbase issues

Racer67. Maybe you need to go look at some of the sportsman chassis of today. You obviously have no clue. Call Chris from S & S chassis I'm sure he will explain it to you. Very nice guy and really will be able to help you out. Gimmicky, LOL.
