This must be why it takes so long to get our letters answered:

Agreed. Kinda surprising how AS is shown and mentioned is a top "withering" class. Can you hear me now!?

Default The Ball is in Our Court

So is AS withering due to:
A) Economy -- sucks for all classes, but might be a stronger influence for the high-$$ classes of which AS has become.
B) The move to Kansas -- The stongest AS divisions (from a car count perspective) traditionally have been CenDiv and NE. The move has taken the Runoffs farther away from the "core" of the class. That could be a reason.
C) The rules -- the sooner we get the engine "issue" worked out, the sooner we MIGHT see an influx of new drivers and a return of some to the usuals.
D) A normal ebb and flow of participation

And with the new classes bringing in Speed GT equipment, AS has another class competing for participation #'s.

It is so in our best interest to not let the "issues" linger. Bringing the costs down could make AS a "must see" race. Think of SM with real engine noise.

The new "Prepared classes" are allowing cars back to 1990. I have not looked at the rules, but is there going to be better engine parity ect.. Maybe change the engine and run the Camaros in BP.
