We will be checking Can-Am bodies at the January 14 race. Please be ready when you get to the tech table! Please note the official rule below. Please let me know if you have any questions.
 
IRRA Body Thickness Rule:
 
Section E, Rule 1a: Bodies must meet the following dimensions: .008" minimum thickness on the nose of the body without any tape and .007" minimum thickness on the sides of the body, which may be accomplished using tape that must cover the entire side from wheel well to wheel well (on F1 bodies, from the front axle opening to the rear of the body side).

Me and Buddy Mitchell were planning on making it but I just found out Billy changed the Dungeon race to the 14th due to the weather so it's up in the air right now. :unknw:

Will,

You're doing a nice job promoting this race.

Doubt Jay Guard will be there, as he is still in FL overseeing the construction of his new house in Deland.

 

AFAIK he is planning to race in a FSCS event at Bill Pinch's RACEWAY in Melbourne tomorrow.

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap
