Anyone get responses to questions sent in?

Been a few weeks for me and nothing... camshaft rules are still unclear.

over two weeks for me. Getting really tight to order custom parts, and without a clear rule on the cam, it's just sit and wait.

Standard iron core? And In the camshaft heading it says "lift". But no mention of a lift , is there a lift rule? Usually

Just buy a couple cams and sets of pistons which will meet whatever rule either way, no matter what the question.

That must be what you are expected to do ... ](*,)

Ever hear anything back on this? Looking over previous years' rules, they had a lift rule in 2017 @ .600" at the valve and unlimited lift for 2016. It's possible there is no limit this year. Wouldn't be the first time.

Anybody got any communication other than a request to pay up on entry fees? 5 weeks to go and everything is up in the air.. Anybody want to lay odds that it gets cancelled?

There has been a very large "changeover" of personnel at Hot Rod Magazine this year.
So, being that this event is on the bottom of their totem pole of events, it is not a wonder to me that things are even worse than in the past.
