This is simply an updated version of the old rules that the board asked me to review. The board members were all sent a copy back in October, I only received one response. I told Jimmy I'd post them weeks ago and it seemed Big Lar had some questions as well, so it seemed like the perfect time to post them. These are not my rules, they are the clubs rules and are subject to review by the board at anyone's request.
Ken
Hot Rod rules have been updated.
