The Nostalgia class consists mostly of authentic oem framed coupes and coaches, restored to their former glory featuring 6 cylinder, flat head and small block Chevy’s, Ford’s etc. The Modified class utilizes a more modern chassis such as a Bicknell, Teo, Troyer etc with steel Gremlin, Pinto, Coupe, Coach, Vega etc bodies to replicate the cars of the 70’s and early 80’s. Mud Bus style cars mounted on period correct 80’s chassis are also permitted to compete with a weight penalty. Engines are restricted to small blocks with a 2 barrel carburetor. The series features full on competitive racing and keeps track of points earned to ward the top point getter in each division for the DMNT Championship.
