The intent of the Doe Run Raceway and Coles County Speedway D2 Midget Engine rules is to utilize production engines with stock internal dimensions, with a target range of 200 to 225 horsepower. All engines must be normally aspirated, internal combustion, four cycle, reciprocating piston type, incorporating a maximum of four (4) cylinders in line. Engines must be production engines from a passenger car manufacturer and reasonably available in the United States. No engines may be used from passenger cars that have not been sold in the United States of America by an official authorized manufacturer dealership. No purpose-built race engines, race engine blocks, race engine cylinder heads or race engine crankshafts are allowed. Engine serial numbers and\or engine designation model numbers must remain on all engines.
*Engines will be inspected and sealed by the Doe Run Raceway and Coles County Speedway D2 midget series tech crew to verify that engine has been checked and meets the Doe Run Raceway and Coles County Speedway D2 midget rules and to ease in post-race inspections. Any engine that has not been sealed by the Doe Run Raceway and or Coles County Speedway D2 midget will NOT BE ALLOWED TO COMPETE UNTIL ENGINE HAS BEEN INSPECTED AND SEALED BY Doe Run Raceway and or Coles County Speedway D2 Midget TECH DIRECTOR. Car owners can contact the Doe Run Raceway and Coles County Speedway D2 Midget officials to have their engines inspected and sealed with location and times to be determined by car owners and tech official. No inspection for sealing the engine will be performed on race day at the racing facility. Any engine that has been sealed by the Doe Run Raceway and Coles County Speedway D2 Midget tech director but has had the seal removed will be subject to further inspection and must have the engine reinspected and resealed by the tech director before being allowed to compete.
