    Change #1 to the rules for the GB1100, 8 May 2021

    1. Effective this race, the Ralph Thorn Titan NASCAR bodies are now legal. Rear spoiler height is maxed out at 1 5/8". This is above the standard cut line. Racers will have to measure and cut their spoilers to meet this 1 5/8" standard. Cars presented at tech with bodies that don't meet the 1 5/8" standard will be returned to the racer to have the body lowered.

    2. Super 16d motors for 2021 will now be allowed to have ball bearing installed in the end bell.

    These changes have been made in coordination with my partner, Tony Moore, and input from select racers.

    We hope this will allow more racers to participate in the 10th Annual GB1100 by utilizing cars that they already have and race in other series.

    See you all on 8 May at SpeedZone...

    Folks,

    One more consideration for the 10th Annual Gaithersburg 1100. A recessed tech block will be used to measure the rear height of the Nascar bodies.

    Thanks!
