The Street Stock class at Seekonk originated in 1971 for one season, returned in 1974 through 1980, and weekly since 1985. This class is designed for the racer who has a limited budget. The chassis on these machines are a stock chassis from the mid 1980s, such as Camaro, GM cars such as the Grand Prix and Monte Carlos. In 2014 the speedway started using fiberglass bodies that showcase newer style cars from Ford, Dodge & Chevrolet. The building of these cars helps teams gain the experiences needed to continue up the ladder of competition.
The cars run on a 7” tire manufactured by American Racer. It is not uncommon for these competitors to be on the edge of out of control, all while driving down Rt. 6. Two and three wide racing is the norm in the Street Stocks, while the drivers learn how to control their cars, and the crews learn the basics of the setup and fine tuning of a race car.
This is an entry level division for our competition which races weekly on Saturday throughout the spring and summer. Many competitors have used this class to move into the Late Models and Pro Stock ranks. The experience learned here can give you many opportunities to show your skills in many areas.
