Click here to learn about the newly revised rules for our MVSDRS racers.
This is a significant change with the intent of making racing safer, more competitive and fair to all participants.
One official writes:
There have been many changes made to our set of rules for the upcoming season next year. A lot of thought has been put into these changes and will affect a lot of racers. It was our intent to make a set of rules that did not make a racer have to make drastic changes to his sled to meet the new rules, and at the same time do what is best for the sport to allow it grow. We feel these rules accomplish both. Mod Stock will now be a class where a guy can build a modified stock sled at a lower cost to be competitive and still be able to jump up in the new Pro Stock class. This should allow the Mod Stock class to grow again and hopefully some racers that have felt they couldn’t compete can come back out and race again. It will also allow some of those sleds that just plain can’t compete against triple port sleds a new chance to be competitive. The new Pro Stock class lets the racers that like to push their sleds to the limit with newer technology do so. In the stock class we now allow rubber track conversions for the guys that are looking to update their old worn out tracks that are getting hard to find.
It is also our intent to not make major changes in these rules in the upcoming years. As race promoters we need to have a certain amount of entries to make an event cash flow. If that continues to happen, we will all be done racing. With the number of entries falling off this past year and the feedback we have received as the reasons why certain racers have not raced it has forced us to adapt to what is needed to meet all needs to keep the entries up, and make it fair for the majority of the racers. I’m sure some racers will question why triple port exhaust sleds were taken out of the Mod Stock class. This is not a personal attack on any racer at all, it is what we feel is best for the sport. When one sled dominates a class, it doesn’t take long for that class to shrink in entries. This will also allow other sleds to compete more effectively in the Mod Stock class. A 440 triple exhaust Pro Stock sled still has 5 classes they can run competitively in. Let’s all keep in mind what is best for the sport so it continues to grow.
