Front Overhang Body Measurement Revised For SSS
Phase-In Year of ABC Body Requires Adjustment
(Salem-IN) -- Following a meeting with technical officials of the Sunoco Super Series and discussions with teams and other industry leaders, Series officials announced that the front overhang measurement of the pre-ABC bodies has been adjusted. There will be no weight break for a 45" front overhang and all cars can be 46", the same as the new ABC body is.
"We knew we would have to make a few adjustments along the way," stated Sunoco Super Series managing partner R. J. Scott. "It's all just part of the growing process with the new ABC body program. From a tech enforcement standpoint, we were getting where there were too many weight variances. So we eliminated one, but gave the old bodies the same advantage of the new. It really seems to be a mute point because so many of the teams have already switched to the new bodies, but we still wanted the teams with the old bodies to have the same front overhang as the new bodies in 2004."
The Sunoco Super Series teams have two open practices before the season opener at Anderson Speedway on April 17th. For more information on the Series interested parties can visit www.sunocosuperseries.com or call 812-883-0455.
