Clarification of class rules. “This past weekend the 5L car of Jon Lee who races in the 358 Semi Late class who also drives the #61 Super Late Model owned by Rick Peterman, raced in both 358 Semi Late and Super Late Model classes. Let me clarify some misinformation that has consumed social media over the weekend. Dog Hollow Speedway has allowed a driver to compete in two classes since 2014. Both Dog Hollow Speedway & Thunder Mountain Speedway run under Hummingbird Speedway’s 358 Semi Late rules. In the Spring of this year, I informed the tech department of Hummingbird Speedway of our existing rule as well as an adjustment in the Spoiler rule for 358’s running a 602 crate motor that they can run a 12” spoiler. I was informed that there would be no changes in either areas for the 2018 race season. I decided that the spoiler rule would be implemented at Dog Hollow and Roaring Knob Speedway after confirming with owner Rick Jones that they would be following our rules. As pertaining to the dual driving clause, that was simply a clerical mistake of not clarifying Dog Hollow Speedway’s position at the same time we clarified the Spoiler rule.” If you have any questions, please contact Dan Savino by phone at (814) 502-8898.
Thank you, Dan
To all Pure Stock Drivers & Team Owners! Track Promoter Dan Savino would like to thank everyone for their comments pertaining to the new rule modifications that were announced last night. We apologize for a few clerical errors that were brought to our attention and are now rectified. After receiving input we have decided to make a few adjustments. Please view section 36 pertaining to the Rev Limiter and section 40 pertaining to Weight. Once again, Dan and the Tech department would like to thank everyone for their help in trying to make this class grow and prosper.
To all Pure Stock Race Teams at both Marion Center Speedway & Clinton County Speedway. Now that Dog Hollow Speedway has announced that we will be racing as a Saturday Night Track, we have decided to allow the Pure Stock Classes from both tracks to compete on a weekly basis as long as these cars adhere to Dog Hollow Speedway rules with specific attention to the following:
Shocks must remain in stock location!
• All cars that do not meet the 358 cubic inch threshold must weigh a minimum of 3,250 lbs w/o triple disc and 3,350 lbs with triple disc.
• All cars that do meet the 358 cubic inch threshold that have been pumped and sealed, will have a weight break. Must weigh a minimum of 3,100 lbs w/o triple disc and 3,200 lbs with triple disc.
• Cars running a 602 crate engine must weigh 2,900 lbs w/o triple disc and 3,000 with triple disc.
• *All weights are based after the feature with the driver!
Rev Limiter Box is mandatory with a 6800 RPM chip: MSD PN #8728 Soft Touch Rev Control. Track provides the chip!
• DHS highly recommends the continual use of the Rev Limiter as engine protection for unforeseen situations where the box can prevent over revving that could lead to engine failure.
Tires: Open Compound.
Engines: *See section 26, 29 & 31 of the 2018 DHS Pure Stock Rules!
