Just so people don't freak out.... this part:

The popular Sundae Cup class, focused on front-wheel drive economy cars with a spec Falken RT660 tire, features some changes focused around parity. The class officially becomes a power-to-weight class (25 pounds per horsepower) with percentage modifiers for weight like the Touring Cup series. Percentage modifiers range from 1% to 3% extra weight for engine displacements beyond 1.5 liters. 

is incorrect. There is a new height limit and modifier going in there:

VEHICLE OVERALL HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT Due to disparity in vehicle design and frontal area/drag, the following measures are enacted in 2023 for SC

● Vehicles 57.5” tall off the ground, with driver, and higher can run at their minimum weight for 25:1 ratio.

● Vehicles between 57.5” and 56.01” tall off the ground, with driver, must run 1% weight above their minimum for 25:1 ratio

● Vehicles between 56” and 54.51” tall off the ground, with driver, must run 2% weight above their minimum for 25:1 ratio

● Vehicles between 54.5” and 53” tall off the ground, with driver, must run 2% weight above their minimum for 25:1 ratio

● Vehicles below 53” tall off the ground, with driver, must run 4% weight above their minimum weight for 25:1 ratio.

● Vehicle height used for the above assessment is measured at maximum height of vehicle roof, ignoring antennas, but including spoilers and / or factory aero (if applicable)

● - Height shall be measured with driver and full fuel, by placing a level long enough to reach to at least the midpoint of the vehicle roof at its highest point above the ground, held level to the ground (using level indicators). A straight edge or rigid measuring tape held vertically immediately adjacent to the side of the vehicle, measuring from the ground to the bottom of the level.

 

Just FYI.
