Grand Stock Question.


Recommended Posts

I know that Grand Stock is a claimer class. I have looked at posts that say if you spend more than a grand on a car, you spent too much.

 

OK. I have a grand. But havent been able to find any car that I can get and convert to meet the standards for around a grand.

 

So, the question is: If I decide to "come out of the stands" and claim a car to drive the following week, is that cool? I dont want to take someones car that they may have really put time and money into just to lose it to me because I had a grand to spend.

 

I guess I am lookin for some advice on this subject.

 

thanks,

TxTerror

San Antonio Speedway is selling Grand Stocks. You can reach them @ 210.628.1499 or 210.827.4524, ask for Rick Day. They've got a caprice with a 350 in it that needs a roll cage, seat and belts. Also needs the doors welded or bolted shut and some other minor items. I think they want around $800 for it. Also, Oval Components has a package that included the Roll cage, Seat , Fuel Cell and Belts for $500. They can be reached @ 210.977.8222

 

Hard to build one for a grand. But just like any other car out there. Soon as you drive it off the lot you've lost a bunch of money. Especially a race car or in our case " a car that races".

It's hard to build one for a grand in most cases.

 

You may tick somebody off if you claim their car, but that's the way it goes...That's why it's a claimer class.

 

However, just remember that they may just claim it right back the following week. Because of that, you might be better off looking into one of the cars bigfat is talking about.

 

I believe THR may also have a few that they would sell.

SAS has a claim rule. Come down and claim BigFat's car, take it to THR. He won't find you. :D Then someone else around here can win a GS race :lol: Now I just need to put a sportsman motor in the old el camino and get er ready :ph34r:

Zoom,

You don't need more motor. Just let me knock some more bondo off the Camino to lighten her up a little more. It's not the 305 Sportsman motor that makes the #12 Chevy run so well. It's the MSD ingnition and the Blake.......... :ph34r::o Not to mention the Lunati Cam. I'm just glad they haven't teched ride heigth yet<_< ;):P

 

My car sucks at THR.
