The American Iron roadster class was put forward by Mike Spacek in answer to the question - where have all the EM entries gone? He was able to convince some voters that there are many, many of these roadsters sitting around because the cost to run one and be
competitive in the current classes is too high.

Please notice that the rules require that the entries be current with the safety rules - costly? I am unsure of how he will be able to ascertain that the engine meets his requirements beyond asking that the entrant supply supporting documentation. Mike was able to circulate a petition among roadster racers in support of this proposal, I don't think anyone that signed the petition cares about the future issues with this new class. They will be the first to scream about too many classes.

The part I didn't understand is the cars ARE allowed to run now.  And if they get 20 entries (ha!), only one will be the record holder -- the others will be also-rans (and I know how that feels).

I think upgrade estimates may be soft, too.  And the first guy who builds a 33-34 with an almost-late-model engine will discourage the rest -- unless they just like running -- which they can now.

The American Iron roadster class should have gone farther than just OEM heads and block. it should have included OEM rockers, intake, crank, etc. Or a claimer on the motor.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

Why, would you run the class or just pick at it?

From someone who agrees with Dan on the future of said class.

Just seems that special clause that permits big blocks into the class doubles the costs.  And then some.

Okay, the record I'm running on is ~122.  Typically on a rookie pass, it's my understanding that the starter wants you to take it easy, and won't okay you to run until you've demonstrated you know how to follow instructions.

Will the course steward still be asking us slower guys to keep our foot out of it on a rookie pass?  While it would be rude and only serve to aggravate somebody, if I'm asked to keep it under 100 on a rookie pass and ignore that direction, and clock an otherwise clean drive at 123, am I going to get sent down?  Or has the SCTA accidently codified a new minimum maximum, overruling the traditional understanding?

If I can do it in 2, I'll be happy to save the wear and tear on the car.

I could be very wrong as it may apply only to El Mirage but I don't think you can set a record on your rookie run.

no, like it says you have to have a rear floor or aft  bulkhead. There were a number of cars with the driver exposed to fire coming from under the car and up into the drivers compartment from behind.
