WE could also have a 2.0 liter category as well that raced at the same time.

Cars must have production body panels, and hard points for suspension must be in the same locations as stock. Drop the minimum weight of the 5.0 liter cars to 3000 lbs and the minimum weight of the 2.0 liter cars to 1600 lbs.

There would be a spec tire everybody would have to run.

The season would be a series of north and south American tracks so Canada and Mexico can get some time as well. Maybe have an endurance race in the middle and end of the season for extra points.
Let Hyundai and Kia come play and prove themselves as well. They have a good 5.0 to start with.
