I just chose the topics discussed in the 2012 CBP page, I think there are a few that overlap.

In addition to what Zenrat said about the unlimited build, the car must appear street legal. Headlights, taillights, license plates and appear to be capable of running cross country at a high rate of speed. A pro street with a ten gallon fuel cell for instance (someone tried it) would not be a good choice.

And Zen, no one might have tried a full Nascar racer, but the Nascar chassis' have been used a few times. My Monza and a clever Nissan Cherry come to mind.

I put the Cherry body onto a Taurus NASCAR chassis Jant but didn't think anyone had done one with the original body.

I stand corrected.

I think you are right about that one. I don't recall anyone doing a full Nascar build.

It's looking like an unlimited build...

I have some ideas brewing already. Oh, wait, my 2012 entry is still on the bench.

Yeah, me too.  :(  :angry:

 

However my unlimited build will be just a simple engine and wheel swap, and single color paint. Even I should be able to pull that off.

Well I think the Poll is done it is clear the Forums choice. So watch in the next couple days for the CBP Topic, and yes There will be rules that the vehicle must follow, unlimited as it may be you still have to have a semi level playing field.
