    Anyone here planning to attend the MidAmerica race this year? Where can I find official rules? The link on their site doesn’t work ...

    2020 Rules are still posted on mid-americaderby.com, probably won't get updated until a little closer to the race date? I doubt the rules will change from what's posted if you want to get building?

    if you are talking about the Mid-America class itself, for scouts, those rules aren't changing.

    If you are talking pro rules, stand-by to stand-by. Everybody is waiting on those right now... 116 days til the race though

    I can get to a web page that has a link to the 2020 pro rules. But the link doesn’t work. If you have a working link, would you please share it? I don’t really belong among the pros, but I’d like to build a basx car. I think it would be a good opportunity to learn a lot. Thanks for the replies.

    The link does not work, but the differences between a MA car/scout car and a BASX are that you cannot have fenders, air shields, and wheels can be no lighter than 2.4 grams. You can still have washers, machined wheels and axles, and the weight limit is the same.
