MIROCK officials have made a rule revision to the 2 inch ground clearance rule on all sportsman classes and the grudge category that will go into full effect on August 5, 2013. See the following rule revision below:
GROUND CLEARANCE: The motorcycle must have a minimum of 2” ground clearance with rider sitting on the bike. Bikes equipped with a billet flat oil pan (not cast) or a wheelie bar are exempt from the 2″ ground clearance check.
Jason Miller, the promoter of the M/T Tires MIROCK Superbike Series had this to say, “The main reason for the 2 inch ground clearance rule at MIROCK was to prevent oil downs from busted stock style oil pans resulted from wheelies. These oil downs caused significant downtime and delays. In an effort to still target the problem of busted stock oil pans without throwing a blanket rule over everyone we have decided to make this rule revision exempting the 2 inch ground clearance check for bikes equipped with a billet flat oil pan (not cast) or a wheelie bar.”
