Looking to buy a race-ready(or almost)car to run in rookie stock.
Rookie Mods Anyone?
01-26-2010 11:22:40 AM CST
There has been a lot of talk on another racing board about starting a "rookie modified" division at Hudson. There seems to be quite a bit of interest and a handful of teams say they are all ready and willing to build cars if the idea gets the green light. I've attached a picture (created by someone else) of what these cars might look like.
The idea is basically to use a rookie-stock type chassis to build a low-budget, open-wheeled modified type car. Here are some proposed rules as posted by someone else:
wheels and tires any off set 8" wheel with 60 series street legal tire.(it's a mod need to let them tires hang out there still need a treadwidth rule i guess dont want zero back space all arond with 1 1/2 spacers on the right or then again do you see next rule)
stock as from factory front upper and lower a arms (as in metric only fords would also have to be stock limits the play with geomtry and keeps tread width with in reason)
10 bolt gm rearend only no 9" i may even go as far as 7.5" ring gear to keep cost down
rear jacking bolts permitted
any automatic trans with working tourqe converter
engine 355 ci max no strokers.hard to tec but needs to be a rule. no vortec fuelies bowties or any aftermarket head. (now your down to just dime a dozon heads) d shape style crank only no scolloped cut or round style cranks
stock oem style fuel pump with no bigger then 3/8 fuel line (if you can't get the fuel there you may think twice about putting one of them huge blake carbs on there)
shocks any oem style, mounted how ever you want (front style must be in the front rear style in rear)
i like the 4412 but i think it would have to be on a castiron two barrel intake
What do others think of this? Anyone else interested in building one? We have yet to talk to Mr. Webber about it but if enough people show interest there is a good chance we will try it out.

Ronald - Weekly Enduros would be fun IF they kept the Rookie Stocks and Roadrunner cars OUT. other wise its just a benifet diner to the 4th and 5th place guys that cant get trophies in there own divisions.
Racefan - I personally would love to be apart of a post/pre race autograph session. would let the fans get to know their home track drivers.
Johnny Refer - if last year is any indication i would say the year should start off with about 8 or 9 RR's and end with close to 20. i know of 2 new guys that are going to be running weekly. the 07 and the 27 (also has the 95CRX and a 98VW) that raced there last year were talking about coming back full time in 2010 the 13 might come over full time and i think that the 66 is coming back with a mustang. so right there you have 5 new guys to the division.

Hey how about getting the fans involved this year by having fan lap sponsors or pick order to win like horse racing possibly a good way to get more revenue in during feature races
or fan /driver picture autograph session how about a raffle to win season pass for family 4 pack those stands last year were full just bouncing ideas off

Have any of you Rookie guys ever run your cars at Lee in the Hobbys? My guess is that the front-running Rookie cars could keep up with some of the Hobbys. Anybody ever tried?
01-21-2010 10:41:13 AM CST
so are the rookies going to be teched this year with strict rules or is it going to be a free for all again. just curious so i know how to set up the car.

Would love to see weekly enduros. Get in touch with some of those former fast-8 cars from the other track.
As for the rookies, with the 22+ car fields last year and all the talk of people getting more cars ready this year, we very well may see A and B rookie races.

Been hearing a lot of people on this board and others saying they are building/buying Rookie cars for Hudson next year. Looks like that division is going to be even bigger next year. Should make for some more great racing!

Any plans on paving the track or sealing the cracks.....there's a asphalt plant I believe 2 miles up the road

Awesome job to Hudson Speedway, this year.
Bob it was great to see the track turn around!!!!
Wasn't quite like the 80's, but sure was real close. (:

The banquet was a great time glad to see a good turnout of drivers and families...

I just want to say the v6's had alot of fun racing at Hudson Speedway the past years. Going to miss the track. For we are not on the schedule for 2010. Maybe I will stop in to see a race once awhile.

Great job to all this year at Hudson. The owners, staff, drivers, pit crews etc all did a great job of putting on a great show week in and week out. I think we saw a rebirth of an old, tired track this year. Where else in NH did they have such large fields in every division each week? Great job everyone, lets work to make next season even better.
