hello all,

is there such a thing as written rulebook for the uscra? the rules section on their website was last updated in 1999. i was looking for something more recent, like say circa 2005. anyone got any answers of where i could find such an animal?

i'll take all kinds of answers (informed, uninformed, educated guesses, theories, propaganda, bullshit, etc....)

so as they say in dallas, fire away lee harvey!

Texolio,
Last printed rule book was 2002.
A 2005 issue is due to come out soon. Should be in the next several weeks.

Rules smules.....

USCRA rules are all arbitrary and are mostly written to impede people like branson. Run what you brung, bitch a hole lot and they will let you run what you brung.

Belly pans SUCK !!!!

belly pans rule, and you only need rules if you plan to follow them. and, also, if someone plans on enforcing them. doh! i know tex, getting the new rule book from wera every year is nice. and them having vintage on the cover is a nice touch, dontchya think? hey, did you notice th page with the pictures of the kids in the pits at the wera races, pretty funny. what a great idea.

thanks everyone for your responses.

johnny b, i assume that the new rules will be posted to the uscra website. hopefully in a pdf format so anal retentive types like myself can print it out to have it trackside for reference.

i am curious about the new rules like in bellypans and such. i disagree that belly pans suck. i will admit that when wera went that way a few years back i resisted. however, after being subjected to numerous track clean-ups for oil at loudon last year, i can see where they might help to AVOID track spills, and thus give us more practice/longer races, etc....

joe, yep got my wera rulebook friday. very cool to see vintage on the cover. wish it would of been that sweet shot of chris marshall, eric cook, buff harsh, mike ewer, and me coming thru t1 at vir, but oh well, i guess i'll just have to be famous here on the cafeboard. don't make fun of those kids pictures, i'm sure the one in the helmet is bucky.

on the subject of rules, i follow them all. i think cheating for a piece of wood is pretty lame. uscra tropies are rarely a piece of wood (i think they have the best awards of all the clubs). did you ever see what ahrma gives you when you win daytona? it's a fricken piece of plexiglass/lucite or a varnished square of mdf. on that subject, the first year ahrma and wera did the co-event at jennings, wera had the first day, so they had the first award ceremony. the winners got some impressive trophies (1st thru fifth) and the three podiums were all given bottles of champagne (well, it was sparkling wine). ahrma was a little embarrased at what they had brought to the party for their awards on the following day.

bucky, or jd. its hard to tell with that tinted visor. youre a funny fucker you. i hear buckys not making vir, so that means "chef" probably wont show up. which means i wont have the scooter. that bastard. you know, i knew letting him have that was just a bad idea. goddamned.

hey, anyone looking for a beater car. i have an 87 buick park ave. 78k on the clock. runs great, but needs some work. (rear brake light lense, tune up, tires, maybe shocks, no headliner) repainted a few years ago and looks pretty good. lots of electric stuff. velour interior. it aint show quality, but its ok. if you want pics, drop me a note. first owner. clean title.
