Mini Car Drivers: There have been some calls about "kickers" to the front frame rails. We will allow you to have them but here's how this will go. Say there are 3 cars total with kickers and 8 cars without kickers...you will CUT 2-3" out of the middle of the kickers before you will be allowed to run! Most have said this area has more hard cars but we are going more with the total basis of what cars will have at time of inspections when considering these kickers! So, be prepared to cut them or come without them if you feel that you will end up cutting them....

Posted rules with the exception of this one kicker! I wouldn't push the limits to much, we are just allowing them since majority of calls have all been about this one particular kicker. You can contact Clayton if u need too.
