Beginning on September 8th, HMP will add an X275 class to our monthly events. HMP will follow the X275 rules as published on Temporarily for the last three races this year (Sept, Oct & Nov), we will allow the Chevrolet Tall Block above 588 cubic inches up to a maximum of 632 cubic inches with a weight penalty of 150 lbs. At the end of this season, we will make the decision on whether to continue this exception for 2013. Should the rules change on, so will the rules at HMP. The X275 class will be part of the entire 2013 season as well. Click Here for 2012 X275 Rules

We are currently seeking sponsorship for the class and hope to publish a purse soon. In the absence of sponsorship, HMP will commit to a purse that will pay back 8 places with a minimum of $1000 to win. Any sponsorship dollars will be added to increase the purse. 

In addition, Dean Baker has committed to do whatever is necessary with regard to track prep for the radial. He won’t be happy until the track hooks hard enough to break any and all weak parts of your drive train. Lol. We hope that everyone will support the X275 class as both racers and spectators. 

Finally, HMP has changed the Small Tire class to Outlaw 275.  Purse will be Winner Take All.  Rules are posted on the HMP website.  Visit for more more information.
