    Default Possible new racing class (grudge style ) in BG during GS Nationals! Please comment!

    Ok there has been talk of implementing a new class at BG for racing on Friday night under the lights. Steve Kessler who has built TSM back up the last several years has come up with the idea.
    I would like to get a primary V8 sponsor and have a V8 class as they are doing one for 109 block (stock 3.8 Turbo Buick motor).
    Here are the rules so far for the 109 class:
    King of the 109 Cash Days
    16 car field - buy in required
    275s or 28x10 tires
    109 blocks
    Door cars with stock style suspension
    Instant green tree
    Chip draw for matchups - callouts allowed. Repeat each round.
    Winner take all
    No rules, no excuses, RWYB
    So V8 guys what do you think? We have a primary sponsor designed for the V6 and would probably have a king of the hill run off between 109 vs 455 etc... Looking to be Friday night under the lights at BG! Could be a great resurrection of grudge racing especially in BG. Let me know your thoughts. Trying to get this all finalized by the end of the month!

    RWYB - Sounds like fun,

    However for us V8 guys it would be much simpler if each of us that wanted to run this just mailed a check for $1000.00 to Rod Hendickson, results would be the same.

    I am going to get a lenient set of rules and see if i can get a halfway decent car count together for this class.

    Wayne will we see you in BG this fall with the GSX drag car?

    Yes, I plan on being there with the car. That said I planed on it the last 2 years. However problems on the dyno and the date move got in the way of my plans.

    I Have it on the race schedule, my crew chief is also looking forward to missing school for the race.
