2017 SM Limited Late Model Rules Released – Updated!!
Santa Maria Raceway has released new rules for the 2017 Santa Maria Late Model Series. These rules have been designed to allow more Late Models to compete in a local series with more affordable options. These rules apply to the Santa Maria Limited Late Model Series and not the Super Late Model Open Motor class. The Super Late Models will ONLY be running at the Spring Nationals and the Simkins Memorial. The Santa Maria Limited Late Models will run all the Late Model Shows on the 2017 Schedule as the SM Limited Late Models. This is a separate class distinct from the open class of Super Late Models, But the Supers may run with a restrictor plate as specified below in the engine rules. The ultimate goal is not only to increase car count, but to allow some teams with LM equipment to get those cars out of hiding and onto the track. The PDF copy of the rules is available for download below:
