Street Stock - sponsored by Golf's Car Wash
The Street Stock Division, sponsored by Golfs Car Wash, is one of the most common divisions in North America with almost every track having some version of a Street Stock. Based originally on a domestic car with a minimum wheelbase of 101 inches, the favourites are Camaros, Firebirds and Monte Carlos with full roll cage and driver safety systems.
A Street Stock chassis is limited to what was originally offered with the car from the factory and the suspension to family line (GM to GM etc.) components that fit without modifications. While these cars originally started life as a street driven automobile, they are lightened by cutting away all of the inner body structures and have enough adjustments to make them handle very well.
Limitations on engines and performance parts help keep big money from dominating but put it in the hands of the drivers and crew, making Street Stock some of the most competitive racing seen anywhere.
The Street Stock Division will be running an American Racer tire for the 2016 season. This tire is an 8 inch grooved racing slick that will be mounted on an 8 inch wide racing wheel.
In 2011, the following cars became legal for the Street Stock Division:
- 1982 to 2002 Camaro and Firebird
- 1983 to 1988 Thunderbird and Cougar
- 1994 to 2011 Mustang
