    Default Another Idea for growing the 45 class

    I know a few racers have metioned this and it was brought up again on a call we all had with Fred Miller. How can we get more involved with stock outboarders? I know we need divers and this may have to be done region by region but I think it would be fun to have a laid back weekend racing with those guys and it would put our boats in front of possible new drivers. I'm willing to do whatever I can to make this happen in Michigan.

    All thoughts and opinions would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!

    Default Yes

    Great idea Steve - it is probably the best place for SST-45 to attract new drivers.

    I know in my region (Region 10) that all they race SST-45 in is with Stock, Mod, Pro races and inboard - we have no OPC category.

    Thanks,

    Greg

    In Region 10 I would contact Jeff Kelly - he is the one working to bring the class back here.
