The 100 lbs is nothing but just make the rr 1600/55 did the hard rr for years at certain tracks the rules will get tweaked when only two three crates show up.

With the penn Ohio series rules it would have made better sense for all parties to follow there rules. What you have currently is just going to divide the cars that want to run a particular track.

all the other tracks run under the series rules. except lernerville an now ppms.

PPMS is still running Penn Ohio rules. Only difference is the tire rule and opens weigh 100# more. Suspension, aero, chassis, safety and driveline would be identical. To be honest outside of guys running 1425s on the LR/RF nothing else is changing. To get the best setup % most cars are around 2950 ish anyways unless you have a newer roller.

Street stock rules have been a problem for years. No unified rules,every track doing their own thing,guys can't be legal everywhere. All tristate tracks should adopt Penn Ohio rules. This would give teams the opportunity to go race wherever they want (like how all tracks use WOO rules for late models) This would benefit everyone, racers,promoters,series,sponsors, all except the crate queen Vickie.

Oh one more thing the logic to add 100# to opens is because LV also weighs 2900# and most cars cannot safely get down to 2800# to have a weight break against opens. So thats why the 100# was added. If you remember a couple short years ago opens were 3200# then 3000# so this isnt anything radical.

100 lbs is a big deal !
Its 3% of the weight of a car
200lbs is over 6%!
Its allot for a crate car or a car with a 350 engine
Like he said the opens were 3200. !
And going to 3000 is Radical in my opinion !
When you had a 300 pound difference
Then you had a glimmer of hope to have a chance against what Vince calls a 20k roller and Im sure it is
So for whatever reason and I assume its becauae of what the 33 did at Leenerville one time
Well it worked !
The 33 has not been heard from In a Penn Ohio race since
So you have eliminated a group of people
The people who dont have 2000 dollar bolts and all the way between the 406 plus motor
