The SCCA’s Classic American Muscle category had a great year in 2014 with participants all over the country sampling the wares of the popular SCCA autocross program. Our own Dave Nutting hit the autocross course more than a couple of times in his trusty Monte Carlo to do battle with the likes of some heavier duty machines. While Dave was not a top finisher, he was out there racing and participating in a class where he had a “home” and that was the whole point. It looks like the SCCA has made positive changes to the layout of the CAM class for 2015 that will help keep the competition close and grow the participant base. The class will continue to allow cars and pickup trucks. Corvettes older than 1984 will be allowed however Vipers of all ages are excluded.
Body modifications are pretty much wide open. There are regulations on air damns and splitters not jutting out too far, how spoilers can be located, and stuff of that nature. Wheels can be metal or carbon fiber assuming that the non-metallic wheels have a recognized certification on them. Tires must be treadwear rated at 200 or higher. Electrical is unrestricted, brakes are unrestricted, engines are unrestricted, etc. There are three sub classes. CAM- T (traditional) is for cars from 1954-1972. These are for four passenger cars with a 108″ wheelbase minimum and a minimum weight of 3,000lbs. CAM-C (contemporary) for body styles originating in 1978 or newer has a four passenger seating style minimum, a 100″ minimum wheelbase and a minimum weight of 3,000lbs. Lastly is CAM-S (Sports) where the minimum wheelbase is 90″ and the minimum weight is 2,600 or 2,750 with a Lexan windshield. The car had to sit at least two people to start with.
That’s a quick cruise of the rules. For the full boogie listing click the image below for an exploded version. MAKE YOUR PLANS TO TRY THIS OUT. Nutting loved it and he’ll be back in 2015!
