I did some major discussion time with Wayne today, and think I can without a doubt address any questions or concerns about who can or can / not compete in this class.
Couple of these will answer most of the questions, but please feel free to ask any I haven't answered.
1, All equipment in the Vehicle must have been purchased, without compensation from a manufacture. ie: go to 10 shows and we will give you this amp as sponsorship.
2, No Team Names, Vehicle must be ran and owned by the same name that is competing. ie: Bob Nobody is running Craig Butlers car to circumvent the rules.
3, No previous World Finals contestants are ever allowed to enter this class. If you have ever been to any World Finals you may not be in Street Stock.
4, You may own a term-lab and be in this class.
5, you may receive help from a team, or other veteran competitors, as long as the vehicle is in the owners name and they are operating it.
6, You may be on a team or get help from a team. ie: your on Team Sundown, as long as you are not receiving compensation for competing.
7, Manufactures, reps, or audio industry employees in any way are not allowed in this class.
8, You may be part of a retail shops team and compete in this class, again as long as you are not receiving compensation from the retailer, and you are not employed there.
9. You must run commercial grade equipment. No hand built or prototype equipment allowed in this class.
10. Another important rule people seem to not read that is CLEARLY written....
Street Stock Division Passenger Compartment Restrictions
3-9a Nothing in the sound system may interfere with the normal use and / or operation of the vehicle in front of the B-Pillar.
3-9b Seats may be folded for competition, but may not be removed from the vehicle. Competitors who fold their seats must be able to demonstrate that the installation of the sound system does not interfere with the normal operation of the seats that were folded.
This class in intended for beginner level competitors, in order for this class to grow and help people cycle into dB Drag we all need to make sure no one is trying to jeopardize the integrity of this class by circumventing the rules.
