PONCE INLET, FL -- The All Star Circuit of Champions sprint car series has updated their 2002 rulebook with a pair of minor rule changes effective at the Eldora race coming up on April 6.

The first new rule is a change in the way the A Main is lined up. Cars advancing from the B Main to the A Main still receive their qualifying times back, but can not start better than seventh in the A Main lineup. The top six starting spots for the A Main will be made up of the six fastest qualifiers transferring to the A main from their heat race.

Carbon Fiber air boxes are now allowed on sprint cars racing with the All Stars. This change has been instituted since these air boxes have dropped in price, supporting efforts by All Star President Bert Emick to keep down the cost of racing. According to Bill "Barn" Lyle, All Star Competition Director, carbon fiber air boxes also keep the engine cleaner. For technical information regarding All Star car specs, contact Lyle at (386) 679-6536.

New cars specs and rules will be posted on the All Star web page at www.allstarsprint.com later this week, and new rulebooks will be mailed to All Star members shortly.
