PLANO, TX (November 8) -- In an effort to fulfill his vow to make sprint cars racing with the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series "look like sprint cars again," Ted Johnson announced Wednesday the series will amend its rules. When the series opens the 2001 season at Kings Speedway in Hanford, CA, February 23rd, each car must have a full hood. The hood must extend to the front of the torsion tubes or a similar location on coil-over sprint cars. While the hood may be a multiple-piece design, it must appear to be one continuous panel. Drag lengths and tie rods must utilize 4130 of at least one inch in diameter and a minimum .058 wall thickness. Heim ends must be made of steel only. A magnet must stick at any time. No swedging of the tubing will be allowed. Drilling of any bolts, fasteners or heim ends will be strictly outlawed. Johnson also said the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series races will run more laps in its feature races next season. Therefore, the series recommends teams utilize 33-gallon tanks.
