"BOZO", could you elaborate a little bit on this? Some of us, myself included, may not be aware of what endeavor of Tommy's that you're speaking of......

Here is the story:

And here is the rule set for the new 602 crate class:

And even a price sheet from Rocket Performance for a 602:

Here's a section of the article that describes the when and where:
"The division is intended to only race at Spencer Speedway in Williamson, N.Y., and in a special event as part of Race of Champions Weekend at Lake Erie Speedway in September. When details become available on Spencer Speedway for the 2021 season, the schedule will then be released."

There is still a wealth of young talent coming out of the Sodus Microd Club hub that may not see the 4 Cylinder/6 Cylinder/Super Stock divisions as the next step and want a different stepping stone to eventually get into the premier weekly division of B-Mod/SST/Sportsman Modifieds.  Also, some of the more veteran competitors in the weekly mods that may have an old chassis and kids coming out of go-karts/microds may now find a way to dust off that old chassis all while getting their kid some seat time in V8 open wheel division.

Should be interesting to see how it all works out.

That's good information, and something to look forward to. HOWEVER, it raises the question, 'will Spencer Speedway be available for racing next year'? As we all know, the track's ownership has been, shall we say, "fluid" over the last 2-3 years, and as we also know, the so-called "neighbors" have been trying to get the facility shut down for decades. And as if that's not enough, keep in mind the illustrious Governor's apparent disdain for motorsports.

Believe me, I'm not trying to be a "wise guy", just thinking in a logical manner....
