Breaking down the divisions
Short tracks across the nation name their divisions differently, so there is no consistent nomenclature. But at Bowman Gray Stadium, the categories break down like this
Modifieds: Featured cars, lightweight, powerful, designed specifically for racing. They must weigh at least 2,650 pounds and are low to the ground, open-wheeled and race with offset chassis.
Sportsman: Allows Late Model stock cars that are stock in appearance. Both sixand eight-cylinder engines are allowed. Street Stock: Cars are similar to Sportsman cars but weigh more and generally have fewer engine modifications. Stadium Stock: Fourcylinder cars with stock bodies, usually the “starter” division.
