Welcome back one and all after a long harsh winter. Worse for some I'm sure but too long regardless for all. I'm rather sure were all anxious to get back out on the road and back to the track . I see the recent conversation is in regards to a new FX class and pilot program looking to see if this is something that will attract new racers to Victory? Attract or reenergize a fan base to make our style of racing more appealing to the fans in the stands? As I'm lead to understand from what I've read so far, is a group of racers approached Victory in Indianapolis liking what they see in the Victory organization asking if Victory would be receptive to the idea of creating a new class called FX to showcase that class that was run in the mid sixties. I would be remiss if I didn't say there are members within the Victory organization that have also floated this idea. Just so were clear on that. The class would not only give these new racers and car owners a place to race their cars but also current car owners within our own Victory group that have cars that would fit in that class. So far it looks like the small number of members that have commented on this are liking the idea. With that said there are always a question or two. 64 to 66 AWB cars will be permitted to have straight axle steering and suspension? All non AWB cars will be required to have " Full interior " similar to what most of us have now, two bucket seats, rear seat omitted , carpeting, headliner etc. Yearly membership dues required and that allows a member to participate in either class FX or the current index eliminator we have now but NOT at the same event. Has a payout structure been discussed regarding the new FX class? Where will the funding come from to pay those who participate in the new class? In the past because this is considered a exhibition class, racers who have participated in a class like this have been granted a "guaranteed payout " for a certain number of runs made on any given day. To be clear, I like the idea of the new FX class. After all this is where stock and super stock evolved in the mid sixties and to have that class represented only seems right. Lets put our hands and heads together to make this work.
