Sport Modified Rules
2020 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 2020 Calendar Year.

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