BMS Asphalt Modified

2016 Champion – John Cote

The “BMS” or Bethel Modified division is a limited cost, open wheel, pavement style modified class. The
rules have been formulated to encourage participation of cars from numerous similar divisions, with concessions designed to blend the different cars together in a single race with equal competition.

Dirt Sportsman

2016 Champion – Kyle Redner

The Dirt Sportsman division is based on readily available dirt-style fabricated open wheel chassis with limited smallblock engines. There are many dirt tracks with similar classes, so these dirt style cars are plentiful and rules have been formulated to allow cars from numerous tracks to be competitive.

Pro Stock

2016 Champion – Kenny Atkins

The Pro-Stock division is a stock based class designed for more advanced racers, thus it allows more modifications and adjustments than other, more limited, stock classes. The Pro-Stock class is intended to attract cars built for the DIRT Pro-Stock division, Super Stock divisions and “Street Stock/Pure Stock” cars from tracks with much more liberal rules than Bethel’s.

Street Stock

2016 Champion – Gary VanOrden

The Street Stock division is rigidly based on stock production type cars with limited eight cylinder engines. While not a “strictly stock” class like the 4-Cylinder division, Street Stocks must compete under strict guidelines to keep the cars performing and looking stock as well as controlling the costs. Bethel’s Street Stock rules have been written to coincide with the other nearby tracks’ rules as closely as possible, so as to encourage participation.

4 Cylinder Pure Stock – Expert

2016 Champion – Brian Bauernfeind

The 4 Cylinder division has been created as an affordable, entry-level class. The intention of the division is to allow beginners and those on extremely low budgets to participate easily and still be able to be competitive. All modifications made to the cars in this division must be for safety reasons only.

4 Cylinder Pure Stock – Novice

2016 Champion – John Houghtaling

Enduro/Bomber

The ENDURO division is a strictly-stock class designed for beginners as a low-cost and fun way for new participants to enter the sport of auto racing. Rules have been formulated to allow easy construction of the cars and no performance enhancements are allowed, as the speeds of eduro events are intended to be slower than other racing events. Generally, enduro events are of extended laps without stopping the action for spins and minor accidents. The object of enduro events is to learn the basics of racing and survive long distances without damage to the vehicle. The
drivers in enduro events need to focus less on speed and more on negotiating traffic and avoiding accidents. It is hoped that the experience obtained in enduro racing will encourage those drivers to move onward into the regular racing divisions at Bethel Motor Speedway.
