The Grove was always the leader in bringing the newest forms of racing to the east but that is no longer the case. 360's probably outnumber 410's by 20 to 1 and if that doesn't tell you something you are asleep. 305's are the next generation of 360 and 410 owners and drivers. There are more and more of these cars coming to life because the owners know how little it costs to go sprint racing in a 305 and mostly because the rules are so strictly enforced. Ignoring these two forms of racing is absolutely asinine and total proof of having no foresight into saving 410 sprint racing.
This is all well fine great and dandy BUT...
What happens when the guys who have more money than most others want rules changed? They'll out dollar everyone and you'll be left with the same debate everyone is having now. 305's are great and all but the amount that you race for in them doesn't come close to putting a dent in offsetting the cost. If they ran for $500 to win I would consider moving to a 305. The problem is, I can make just as much (some instances more) money finishing top 5 at some tracks than what the winner of a 305 feature makes. Which makes more sense? Spend the money to get a big car and race for less? Or stay in a class that is relatively cheaper (micro sprints) and still have some cash in my pocket at the end of a night?
