Sport Modified Rules

2019 Sport Modified (Sport Mod) Monster Truck Rules & Class Information

This class is in the spirit of the first generation of Stage 3 monster trucks that participated in the Penda Series era in the 90’s.  This is intended to be a more budget friendly version of the modified class, wherein the trucks are also easier to control due to lower speeds. This is a race only class, vehicles will not participate in freestyle.

These rules were decided and voted on by the competition committee and are good for the 2019 Calendar Year.

General/Axles: All vehicles must have a minimum of 2 solid axles. Motor on Axle (Clod Buster) gearboxes are legal. Shaft driven trucks are legal.

Tires: Any Clod or USA-1 sized tire is legal, and cutting is allowed. Any traction compound and/or any cleaning chemicals are not allowed to be used on tires during an event.  These substances will not be allowed on venue grounds.  Water is the only solution allowed for cleaning tires.

Wheels: Any scale appearing Clod Buster sized monster truck wheel is legal.

Chassis: Any scale appearing chassis is legal (tube or plates). Season points are tallied with a given chassis.  If chassis is changed during season, points will not transfer.
