From Ken Pelkie
With the drop of the green flag little more than six weeks away, the final piece of the 2010 rules package has been put into place. This tire rule will apply for September 16, 17, and 18.
Rule 18 of the CSCN Technical rules package states the following:
Open tire rule except right rear tire. Right rear tires are limited to only the approved right rear spec tire by each affiliate series. Official list of approved right rear tires will be released August 1st by Ohsweken Speedway
All five affiliate sanctioning bodies have been contacted with 4 of the 5 responding. The Southern Ontario Sprints have neglected to respond therefore it is assumed no changes in spec tires within that organization exists for 2010. The official list of legal Right Rear Tires being utilized as of July 31st therefore are as follows:
ASCS – Sprints On Dirt (SOD) – Hoosier 105/16.0-15 Medium
or 105/18.0-15 Hard
Southern Ontario Sprints (SOS) – American Racer MC2
Empire Super Sprints (ESS) – Hoosier RD-15 (stamped HTC)
or Hoosier D25
ASCS – Patriot Sprint Group (PAT) – Hoosier 105/18.0-15
or Hoosier 105/18.0-15 D25
or Hoosier 105/16.0
ASCS Med or Hard
NRA Sprint Invaders (NRA) – Hoosier SC-1 (stamped NRA)
The host Corr/Pak Sprint Series based in Ohsweken utilizes the Hoosier HTC R.R. spec tire also.
These tires are the only spec R.R. Tires allowed for the 2010 “Arrow Express – Canadian Sprint Car Nationals”.
Any team may run their choice from the tires listed on the Right Rear. The other 3 corners are open. TEAMS ARE ENCOURAGED TO LOCATE AND BRING NECESSARY TIRES WITH THEM. Be advised that Hoosier Racing Tire Canada through HB Motorsports and BRP will have a supply of the Ohsweken / ESS / Patriot tires on hand for the event.
Also – A SUPPLY OF ALCOHOL RACING FUEL WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE TRACK ON ALL THREE NIGHTS.
Teams are reminded that early entries are being accepted until August 15th at a substantial saving. Entry forms are available on the Ohsweken Speedway website or by contacting Cheryl Pelkie. Entries post marked by August 15 will cost $45 and include a Pit Pass all three days for one team member. That represents a potential saving of $130 over the three days of the event.
