Street Stock

12-14-17 Rule Change-

LT1 exhaust has to be stock. Meaning no after market LT1 exhaust. Meaning no filing or machined LT1 exhaust allowed. Summit, and other racing websites make racing exhaust out of these.

5-20-17 Rule Change-

Option on Rear Control Arms for Metric Full Frame Cars, may use parts # 916-34051 (Speedway Book).  Top & Bottom

2-10-16 RULE CHANGE-

For the 2016 Season we will allow the BUILT engines to run a 500 4412 carburetor with a cast iron intake OR run a 350 carburetor with  aluminum intake.  See below rules for that intake number.  You CAN NOT run both an aluminum intake and a 500 carburetor.  Five Flags has been running built motors and crate motors together for 4 years BOTH on 500 carburetor.

Why this decision was made:

When crate motors were first ok’d to run in Street Stock it had to be purchased from a Chevrolet dealer only.  Now you are able to purchase them from whomever.  The 500 carburetor was to be stocked only.  Now you are able to run VDL or other modified carburetor.  The intake is so high that you have to modify the hood so it will fit.  The crate motor has more horsepower than built motors with the 350 carburetor.  We do reserve the right the right to modify or change this rule if we believe an error has been made.  There is no need of whining and complaining about this.  Some need to stop whining and start practicing. As a car owner you do have the right to race somewhere else if you do not agree with this change.  We are trying as hard as we can to make it a level playing field.  We hope that you will still decide to race with us.  – John Dykes

Street Stock Special Events: MIS & FFS cars can run under their rules and their tires with OUR 5800 chip.  Cars must match their track rules are will be subject to dq.
