Re: Interesting

Maybe we need to canvas the stock racers at clubs to find out why they actually run stock, is it the speed of the cars or is it the cost etc etc. Once we have a better idea of WHY the majority of people run stock we might have a better shot at helping those people who run it. I have never run stock ...
