I wish you all the luck you deserve. A vehicle like that will run in the Classic Category and the 311 will be at the bottom of the C engine class. A dual purpose car will be very difficult to make competitive in the 230-240 mph range.

Yeah. C/Pro I would guess. Depending on what your plans are for the bodywork. Puts you up against 370 inch Monzas and such. Tough group.

Ouch sounds a bit out of my reach.  The car is an 84...whats the cut off for classic?   200+ seems a bit out of my reach monitarily wise.  Maybe ill just focus on making it there and back at this point

USFRA's 150 Club?  https://www.saltflats.com/I50_Club2015.htm

Mike

Thanks for the  response...looks like this or even the 130 class.  I'll poke around that website more.  I have no idea what this car would do

Take it to WoS and get your first taste of salt in the 130 Club.... unfortunately after you are hooked.... that "a bit out of my reach" thing will start to fade away.... say goodbye to your savings.....

Got the rule book the other day...yikes even if I drop down a size class the record is still well north of 200.  Definitely a bit out of my reach.  The 130 class seems to fit my needs just fine

Hi all, my name Joe Nelson, from the Seattle, Wa area. Have been wanting to participate in LSR at Bonneville since I was a kid.... finally have the time and money to give it a try, at 55 yo. :)
I would like to give it a shot with both a classic (pre 1981) bike, a 1980 Suzuki GS1100e in the 1350cc production class. And, I just bought an old pickup truck specifically for LSR, a 1995 Dodge Ram 2500 standard cab, 2wd, with the Cummins 5.9 diesel. Would like to run this one in the production class also, either at the stock 5.9 liter size, or possibly pump it up to a 7 liter or 426ci if the rules allow. Anybody on here know what the the particular rules are for both my bike and truck? Current records?
The truck will looke just like the Banks/Cummins truck they ran back in 1997. I think they went 141 mph. I'm sure that has been bumped up considerably since.....
Thanks, JN

Joe, do you have a SCTA/BNI Rulebook?  That is the first step toward you goals.  A lot has happened in the Pickup Truck classes in the last 20 years. 
Good luck with your quest...
See ya on the salt  8-)

     On the homepage here click on SCTA-BNI or USFA under organizations at the top left of the page.  Both organizations run under the same rules at their events on the Salt and recognize the records set at each others events.  BMST is a motorcycle only event and have their own classes,rules, and records.

     Fair warning - being on the Salt at any event under any organization is very likely to lead to addiction!

The records can be found here
http://www.scta-bni.org/bonneville-records.html

I would suggest get a rule book now... even though it will be a little outdated, so you can get started.  Then join the BNI after the first of the year to get a new rulebook, pit pass, the ability to run Bonneville at a SCTA event, poster, patches and stickers. 

If you want a smaller, more laid back event than the big show, join the USFRA.  Same rules, same records, same salt... long weekend event in September instead of August

 The BMST is the all bike event, usually around the end of August, first of September.  They run on AMA and FIM rules.

Of course, my preference is race at all of them... and I do.  :cheers:
