    Last bog I did ran had tractor tires in the X class.
    People said nothing, i complained and some people didn't like it.
    I was told that I shouldn't do that.
    Guess what? they changed the rules. No more tractor tires in that class.
    This is the second bog that has changed their rules cause I opened my mouth
    This goes to show that most operators are open minded and are willing to listen to the racers.
    So... if there's something that doesn't sound right speak up!

    Everytime I open my mouth I seem to wind up throwing blows!
    But if it works for you I say go for it. As for me I like to stay quiet!

    You should have been at our local one a couple years ago! This guy in a nice K5 ran 3 classes with the same truck. They even let him run the stock glass and his engine was far from stock. His times were about half of what everyone elses were! People bitched, but they said it was legal. Real fair huh?

    Sure;

    The basic classes are as follows;

    usually;
    Stock: up to 32"

    Modified Stock: 33" to 36"

    Super Stock: 37" to 40"

    Super Modified: 41" to 44"(sometimes called X Class)

    X-Class: Larger than 44", non dot. tires,nitrous,alhocol( sometimes called XXX Class)

    These are for the average guy that wants to play. They don't really look at engines unless of course you are modified to the tilt. It's a once day event usually . The bogs I've gone to have about 40-60 trucks that compete. First prize is between $250-400 and so forth . It's fun and you get to meet a lot of people. We have about 7 of these bogs that one can compete in our area each season. I only made it to 3 ( I also like to wheel)

    Then, there are the more serious bogs where rules are very strict. They will check for engine mods very closely, any other mods done to the original truck etc etc, dual carbs etc etc. In these you race for points as well as cash. You race every weekend and travell all over the province to compete so you can stay in the standings. If you keep hitting first here you can make $500.00 a weekend ( yes , this one is a two day event).These are big and fast boys. When you go for this it tends to get more political ( not always) because it's much more competitive.

    'Round here there's also a street class. The requirements are that it's got plates on it, and it's allowed to have plates (got what's required to be street legal - E-brake, etc.). Guys with 44's will go against guys with 31's. :-) But at least they let you enter more than one class.
