With Atomic and Jackson going unsanctioned and using a combo of AMRA/UMP rules for 2018 here are a few questions and answers.
Please note: On the Sport Mod part of all this if your running the PRP style Sport Mod it has to meet their rules. It cannot be a mixture of the two. So in other words it needs to be a PRP style Sport Mod with the AMRA style carb or the Atomic style AMRA legal
1)Any changes to the Late Model or Modified Rules?
No Late Model changes and only Mod change is the Tire Rules. All UMP and AMRA
Late Models and Modifieds are legal following those rules.

3) What are the changes in the Sport Mod Class?
Sport Mod Class rule updates for 2018 at Atomic and Jackson is as follows:
We will now allow stud mounter roller rockers. We have actually found that these are stronger and cheaper for racers. And if the PRP style Sport Mods the have engines that pull vacuum they must run and follow these guidelines on the AMRA style carb and engine blocks that all other Atomic Sport Mods have been using.
a. Chevy 350, Ford 302 or 351W, Mopar 340 or 360. OEM steel block only (Max Cubic Inch 390.)
b. 602 Crate Engines will be allowed with cast iron heads (no aluminum heads). The

the rest of the rules
