OSBA Adds Index Racing in 2009

The Outlaw Small Block Association (OSBA) will be adding four (4) heads-up index classes to its 2009 program. They are 9.00, 10.00, 11.50 and 13.00 sec. indexes. This will give some added excitement to the already established small block racing program. These classes are in addition to the already established C/1, C/2 and Unlimited classes. C/1 class (2350 lb all motor) will be re-named “Pro Stock” and C/2 (2750lb all motor) will now be called “Extreme Modified”. Unlimited class will remain the same. This change was implemented to give more character to these classes and if you saw them run in 2008, you can relate. The OSBA will again host the 275 Drag Radial cars again in 2009. We are also looking to add an Extreme Unlimited class, which would be a true run what you brung small block class. In this class there would be no weight limit, no bore spacing limit, any chassis and power adders would be allowed.

The OSBA wants to give all of it’s racers a chance to win. Some of our racers could not compete in the OSBA classes and should not be penalized for this. Index racing gives everyone in the field an opportunity to be competitive in an all heads-up racing field. Our Index program nicknamed OSBA vs. the World is designed to allow other engine sizes including big blocks a chance to compete against our strong contingent of small block racers. Somewhat of an index grudge race, so to speak. We are looking at Index racing as old school/new school heads up drag racing. Index racing will pay less to win, but will pay more racers on race day.

What is Index racing? This means you pick one of the indexes groups that your car is capable of running. To win you must be first to the finish line but, you cannot run faster than your index! All races are heads-up format with a .400 pro tree. During a race if you run faster than the index time, you will be disqualified. If both cars run faster than the index time, the one that runs the closest to the index wins.

We will hold the OSBA Index World Series at VMP in September. Get your cars ready for the challenge and the excitement of driving to the end. Oh yea, did I mention that 80% of the races will be won at the starting line. Are you ready?
