This publication supersedes all previous rules and rule updates.
GENERAL STREET STOCK RULES:
I. No equipment on a racecar will be considered as having been approved because of having passed through inspection "unobserved". If this rulebook does not specifically state that a change, modification, or addition is legal, then a competitor must consider that change, modification, or addition as illegal. If a question arises about the legality of a change, modification or addition that is not covered in this rulebook, the question must be answered by I-25 Speedway in writing, and that decision is final.
Registration: Street Stock drivers must turn in a fully paid and completed current year Registration Form with properly assigned car number and pit stall, as well as a current W-9 form prior to competing in any event. (Including but not limited to qualifying races.) Every effort will be made to assign the driver with the pit stall they requested, but I-25 Speedway reserves the right to move any car to another pit of equal construction (when permissible) at any time. Any car not in their assigned pit spot will be fined $50. There will be no duplicate numbers and/or letters used.
Check Policy: A returned check fee of $50. will be payable in cash prior to competing in any event. Re-issue of lost checks will cost the driver $25.
The Street Stock class is designed to offer competitive but affordable racing to entry level and veteran drivers. All cars must remain stock except as noted in the following rules. Visiting care may compete under their home track rules if the car has a current inspection sticker from their home track and is accompanied by a current copy of the track’s rules. Tech inspectors reserve the right to determine safety and competitiveness of any car.
BEFORE you race, all required forms are to be filled out, NO forms, NO checks. (Racing without said forms is Forfeiture of that wks check-NO tolerence) (revised 1.29.17)
