Sunoco National Tour to Allow ABC Bodied Cars to Compete
Weights Are Adjusted to Allow More Teams to Race
Series PR Report
The Camaros and Mustangs on the Sunoco National Tour have earned plenty of praise this year for their appearance, but have been a factor in recent signle-digit car counts.
Officials with the Sunoco National Tour have decided to allow ABC bodied cars to compete alongside the Mustangs and Camaros for the remainder of the 2010 season with the possible exception of North Wilkesboro Speedway in October. This is a move designed to increase car count and improve competition within the Sunoco National Tour. This move is also intended to spark more fan and driver interest in the new Mustang and Camaro bodies so that there will be more competitors that make the move to the new body style for 2011 and beyond.
Although the ABC bodied cars will be able to compete, there will be some rules implemented to establish parity amongst the two body styles. ABC Cars must weigh a minimum of 2750 with a maximum left side weight of 58 percent.
“While this is something I did not want to do, I know that this is a temporary thing and the goal of having an all Camaro and Mustang field will be a reality, hopefully by North Wilkesboro.” Commented series President Ron Varney.
