Attention Street Stock Teams:

It has been brought to our attention that some street stocks are running ratcheting style lockers. These are NOT LEGAL per Williams Grove rules. The rule states: "Rears must be locked and must be mounted in stock position on stock appearing fixtures." (P. 31 #7)  Random cars will be checked and if a car is found that does not have a locked rear, it will not be allowed to race until a locked rear is installed, NO EXCEPTIONS!
