Trial Rule Change
 Myrtle Beach Speedway 
Posted by:  Steve Zacharias on September 8, 2014 at 3:41pm

In an effort to better the division for 2015, we will be conducting a trial rule change this coming week in the Late Model division. With this being the final race for the regular season, we feel it’s best to attempt this now rather than in 2015 when it may jeopardize season long point standings.

The Chevy 604 crate engine and the Ford 347SR will be allowed to run the 500 carburetor. In conjunction with the 500 carb, the Chevy 604 will be mandated to run a 6600 chip while the Ford 347SR will have to run a 6800 chip. The speedway will supply the chips on race day and we will get them back at the end of the night. We will place a sticker over the chip to insure that there is no tampering with it. All boxes will be tested with a 3000 chip before the race chip is given out. If your box has an issue reading the 3000 and chips don’t work, you will be issued a 350 base plate to run with the 500 carb. This will give you the 450 Hybrid carb which is what we have had for those engine packages in 2014. The weights will be the same. 3100 lbs total / 1400 lbs right side

This decision was not made without some research and thought. We conducted conversations with numerous engine builders and they all felt this was the fairest method to run with, giving all engine packages in the division a fair shot. This change is done in an effort to bring in some more teams to compete at our track. We have lacked cars in 2014 who own the Chevy 604 and Ford 347SR due to the 450 carb.

We would like to thank everyone for understanding that we are doing everything we can to make the division and speedway the best it can possibly be moving forward. All divisions are being closely monitored and opinions noted as we plan to grow more in 2015 with higher car counts, fan attendance, etc.

There will be an open practice this Friday September 12th for all teams wishing to attend. The practice will be $50 per car and will last from 2 pm – 7 pm. Teams can also utilize this time to mount race tires and get pit passes to speed up the process Saturday. Below is the race day schedule for Saturday:
