I'm planning to attend the VARA and get some pictures Feb 9th and 10th 2008. This always gets me motivated to get my car done. If any one is in the area of Button Willow Raceway around these days PM me. It's a blast. Only 10 whole huge bucks a day or both days maybe.... not sure of that. The cars are listed below.
Its about a 3 hour drive for me but worth it.

It is recognized that steel/factory type body parts are difficult to obtain for some cars. Body parts of fiberglass or other materials may be substituted without affecting classification if the car’s weight is the same or more that of steel bodied cars. Substitution of fiberglass or other materials that results in reduced vehicle weight may result in re-classification into a faster class.
