As it stands this class will be a premier featured class at BRRP. We want to see that older iron on the track. This is a VERY easy class to build for and with out the need for a motor builder, machining tools, and a mountain of cash.

The rules have no reason for change. We are working to clarify a couple things but use what you see on the sledsracing.com with the exception of the year '98 rules change.

Thanks,

Randy

I would like to see some research done on the ski stance issue.  Yes I understand these are the SLEDS rules, but I am pretty sure the '98 yamaha srx's have a ski stance of 41 inches. 
I would hate to be sent home........

I am kinda waiting to see what they say about the 1995 XCR 600, as they also have a 41 inch ski stance from the factory. They are listed in the specs as having 41 inch as well.
