    Just a thought...a very popular class downstate is the 73 and older 440 stock stuff, Marion, BEVRA, Saints, Gladwin all offer this class and would possibly make for a good turnout of sleds.  Totally understand that Relic Mod's would be way cool, but not sure how many you would get to show up.

    Would this be in additional class to the Brad Redmon Memorial race?

    I'm no longer running glass which does the brad Redman this is all my fault lol. Have enough to run a race already stepping up. They think if we can get 7 or 8 sled atleast we will set , this race should be just before the brad Redman same night

    Mod stock 85 and older at the soo I think would be huge!! I would try build a new sled to run there 👍🏻

    I think keep 15 laps do a mandatory pit stop for gas half way through the race....

    Looks like to make this race happen it will be 71 and older sleds. I'll talk to the powers that be and see what else we can do for the newer stuff

    There is no reason to stop for gas. back in the day, even 650 triples got over 5 mi. per gallon

    Well if it is suposed to period correct then the sled would have the stock tank, right?

    I have a problem with the classification mod stock. In my estimation, it is mod or stock. hope George can keep isr out of it

    Sounds good Randy, thanks for the info. I'd still put on a stock tank, or least a bigger one. But then again it's only 15 miles plus parade laps. To me if a mod stock sled has a small tank that's his problem.
