We have a lot of fast to decent stock Muscle Cars in our collection, so we started speed testing tonight pre-graphite. I told the girls...don't choose because it's a favorite car of yours, let's get it down to eight (8) best cars and then we will have a lottery like we did with the Funny Cars and then will send them to the Graphite Bay and be ready to race with our eight (8) best stockers. I have to build a few more mods before we have the Modified Lottery, but I've got time....hopefully the two (2) I sent out to Utah for the Mustang vs Camaro will be in the mix, however, The Lady of Speed may race the Hot Johnny Camaro come hell or high water...she likes that car a lot.

It's also great that the track is already built this go round...more attention and time can be spent on the cars!!!

Definitely count me in for the stock division ... I've got the perfect contender for that! I might even put graphite on a couple old slow modifieds and throw them in for the heck of it, but we'll see. Might not be worth the cost of shipping....

Glad your going to be racing with us again....just check the weight on the Stock Division

Thanks! But ohhhh, don't worry--fifty-five grams should work just fine!
