I've always been just a spectator at the races for 20 or so years...never looked much into the rules just curious if the bedford semi lates are not legal with the Penn Ohio series...bedford is my home track and the semi lates are by far the best racing every week...a few of them are very strong cars in my opinion just wondering if maybe they cant run with that series? Thanks for any info

I don't think you can run your rear springs 1 in front of the rear end tube and 1 behind, but you can use a bigger carb. the semi -lates do put on a very good show at bedford

Bedford Semi-Lates are a street stock anywhere else.  Stock frame front to rear. Some replace the front stub with a Camaro stub.  We can run tubular upper control arms on the front.  All other control arms front and rear must be stock.  Rear bushings must be some kind of rubber no spherical bearings.  Engine is flat top 350 with stock vortec heads or stock replacement aftermarket vortec castings.  Fords can run one of the world heads.  Flat pistons, flat tappet cam.  350 cubic inches weigh 3000 lbs.  400 ci weigh 3300.  The magic of the class is the carb rule.  We are restricted to a gauge legal 4412 2 bbl.  This really helps to equalize the cars in this class.  Makes for close racing.    We would be at least 100 horsepower under a decently designed penn ohio 4 bbl engine because if this carb rule, though.
