    Some people have been pushing SCORE to allow longer WB vehicles into Class 3. This would make K5's not competitive in the class, and that is really the only class where they are competitive. In my opinion those folks want SCORE to tinker with the rules of a Historic class for their own gain. There is an extinct class existing where those vehicles are a better fit: Class 6
    Ironically Class 6 was killed by the very type of vehicle now being proposed to be legal in Class 3, i.e. 2wd SUV mallcrawlers.
    If this matters to you enough to have an opinion I would encourage you to drop SCORE a note @ info@score-international.com

    What I wrote SCORE:

    To whom it may concern,
    I am not a Class 3 participant, however I do have association with poeple who are. I do not see the need to change Class 3 rules when the essentially extinct Class 6 rules will accomodate those pushing for rules changes with less impact on existing race teams. The whole premise and history of Class 3 is for short wheelbase 4x4's. Changing the rules would be a death blow to teams campaigning vehicles in Class 3 that spectators identify with the history of Off Road Racing, such as Early Broncos and K5 Blazers. Given the current rise in popularity of Vintage Racing in all aspects of vehicular competition, such a change in rules would be a disastrous mistake.

    It's rac'in..........SCORE

    That's a lot of horse crap about the change. There's already a class for the 2WD mallcrawler if they want to race Class 3, make them run Stock Full.

    I have a vested interest in this matter since actively run a Class 3 Chevy Blazer. www.rafforacing.com is my website. I have been vocal about my objections to these rule changes. Most of us that are currrently race are in agreement about what changes we think would benefit the class, meaning what it will take to add new trucks as well as keeping those that are already racing. I have posts on the JeepSpeed website that describe the impact of the rules changes. SCORE has just sent a survey to those of us that are registered in the class. I'd be happy to talk to anybody that has an interest in racing in this class. 800-372-4356 Chris Raffo
