    We will see how attendance is and go from there. May eliminate some classes due to lack of participation.

    For those of us race challenged what are the rules in particular for the stock and work class as far as Muffler mods chain style all that kind of thing. Who knows I might even choose to embarrass myself a couple times.

    Generally it's something like this:

    Stock = No muffler mod or modification allowed.
    Work = Must have muffler with deflectors or holes that are suitable to use in the woods, must have functional air filter, chain brake intact if it had one.
    Race = Runs on gas, has muffler.
    Open/ Alky = Pipes!
    Firewood = Under 4ci, round chain, + rules for work class.

    Rules 4 type of chain would be nice when you get it all figured out.

    Usually no rules on chain except for the firewood class. Which has to be round. But, for your gtg you could specify your own rules if you see fit

    We are thinking of doing round chain for the stock class. Possibly get some non racer types to participate
