ASedan numbers have been fairly good, compared to a number of other classes. Reorganization of GT2 and some of the T classes have bumped their numbers, but AS is in no danger of dropping out of the Majors/Runoffs programs. That being said, participation is the key to the future success of the class. Since entry numbers on the west coast have been very low, even with the Runoffs being held at Laguna and Sonoma, the SMG cars should help bump the numbers out there. I doubt that anyone will be buying/building these cars at their price, and given how cheaply you could build a car like Kevin drives, (or a RP Ford) I do see the same issues that some of you have pointed out. ABS, bigger wheels and tires, aero, etc. Data now rules, and if data shows a problem, the ASAC and CRB will fix it.
