Mikey my wife in my partner she's the one that lets me spend money on my car she the one that helps me in my shop she's the one that I get up to go to work for every morning she the one that give me the will to win , hopefully you have a woman like her .

As far as Brett I know how hard we all work on these cars and the money that goes in to them we all can't have mustangs and if we did they want all be the same so little stuff like hood scoops and muffler and seat don't mean much to me . These are race cars not street cars

As for supporting the class I've supported this class for a long time and will continue to and hopefully you and the others will also see you at the track

Well considering the class is called "Real Street", little things like hood scoops, passenger seats, no screws in windows, and mufflers mean a lot to me. You don't have to have a mustang to fit simple rules like that. Hell, I couldn't tell you what car needs to be backhalved to fit a 28 inch tall tire. Those rules we just let slide, don't enforce, or let our buddies in are what built the class. They built the class to 30-40 cars. Tell me, just how much growth have you seen in the class each time rules are adjusted to fit "more cars"? Go ahead....I'll wait.

Those rules are so simple. If you can afford a car that runs 5.50's you can afford to make your car fit the rules and not the other way around.

30 of them cars can't afford to race cost to much money and they think they can't win so they don't race. Add it up what it cost it's not in there budget

Make it a free race you will have more cars

Stop screwing with the index and letting bigger tire and back halved cars in and maybe you get those guys back. Index got lowered but did anyone make sure we'd gain enough cars to make up for the guys who decided they wouldn't be fast enough

And I don't make the rules the people that raised the purse make the rules so you need to take that up with Ricky and Mitch

All I will say is thank you Mitch and Ricky for the great purse we have !!!

10 cars =1000.00
This class paid out 3100.00

I'm only going to say that it's not about the money the reason cars do not show it's the way the class is being run. I have said it for years. You need a neutral guy to run any organization to make it fair and equal to all racers. You need rules set and enforced that are not manipulated or changed to suit certain cars. The original EC rules worked for years.Hats off to Ricky for what he has done and Mitch for all the money he puts into it. Without these 2 RS be done.

Default 5.50 Real Street-- New Beginning

I don't understand why it would take letting w's in to get guys that can run on non w's. Changing that is bullshit. They want to race they can't put true 10.5's just like everyone else. No class that has ever opened up the rule book to let more cars in has been successful. Forget the index, whatever. Those rules have been successful for almost 10 years. There was no point in changing them. If they want to race Real Street, they should make their cars fit the rules. That's just my opinion, I'm not a rule maker. Just a little muffler man college student trying to make a statement in what I considered to be the best thing going.

I understand weather this weekend, thats why I didn't go. Appearently I need to find a new weatherman. Was forced to make a decision at 8 am when all I had to do was put car in trailer and hook truck up after working until 9 to get it ready. But I hope alllll these guys we're destroying a rule set for show up in April so I can make them all feel like dickheads when a car with all glass, power windows, no good scoop, passenger seat, stock frame rails, working head llights tail lights and brake lights, mufflers, true 10.5 tire, that in perfect cool weather conditions has been no faster than a .54 loads them all up and takes all their money.

Yes...But it is dwindling on Down. Somebody needs to start it back up with original rules and index....weed out the baby pro-mods ...you won't have their money...but maybe participation will bring back the fun excitement,and generate sponcers.
