I'd love bangin bars on a 250 at some of those tracks. Should make for some interesting racing.

I'd be interested in learning what "race prepared" actually means in terms of mods.

Probably not much, but then again this is at the world level. My guess would be suspension, tires, minor power mods and hopefully bodywork.

Maybe they can throw some old Hudson Hornets in the class too. Paint 'em pink with zoomerang pipes through the hood. Gotta keep it interesting. Charlie Sheen would approve.
