    Good to see Huntsville opening up.
    I would like to see Friday night racing again, that would give Montgomery and Sayre cars the chance race.

    I would like to see American Racer tires or a tire that will make a few races and still be the same.
    The weekly cost of buying tires every race to be up front tends to keep some from making it every race.

    Outlaw Late model should be called Late model sportsman, people expect to much when they hear outlaw, maybe its us outlaws driving them! lol
    “the rules are really limited in the class” which is good to keep the cost down.

    I would like to see Aluminum heads allowed but keep them at 23deg. there are so many of these out there sitting in race shops because late models are running more advanced,

    clutch- 7.5 is not as common as a 5.5 these are about the same price, more used 5.5 clutches out in the race shops also.

    coil overs – should be allowed is just common with a late model of any kind but not the bump stop package.

    Thanks for letting me give my thoughts and hope all goes well getting this track opened up!!!

    The engine,clutch,and transmission rules should be the same as listed in the modified section.

    The tire rule needs to be an eight inch tire like Sayre and Montgomery are doing and a tire that will last more than one race like the American Racer. Let the tire equal out the competition and put more in the drivers hands.

    There are lots of old out dated late models sitting for no reason other than everyone can’t go buy the latest and greatest every year and buy tires every weekend.This class with some tweaking on the rules can be a great division that guys that can’t go plm racing can still enjoy and be competitive.

    I hope whatever happens you are successful with the track as there is to much history at this track to let it end up like BIR and so many others.
