You can buy 5" #'s at Menards or try a craft store like franks, or pay big money at a dealer for #'s. You can also get stensils from Menards and spray paint them. CCS calls for 6" tall numbers, I've alway rac 5" tall one with no trouble.

Although I wouldn't buy much else from them, DGY had a great selection of high quality numbers. They aren't cheap though, not that they send you into the poor house, but as far as numbers go they are probably the most expensive option short of getting a professional painter to do them.

Any dealer can order factory effex #s they offer Pro #s and standard. The 6" standard numbers are $1.95 for a three pack available in black or white.

Nick, what's your number? I can have them next week for you no charge. Just have to figure a way of getting them to you. Let me know. 8" number up front and 6" number for both sides of the tail.

Just get your numbers at the track. I think its $6 for a set of 3 numbers from Lithium. If by some freak chance they don't have them someone else will. You can use 6 inch numbers up front and on the sides. The rule books says different but there are alot of people who use 6 inch, including myself, tech won't say anything to you, except for Larry, but thats Larry..

Make sure that the numbers are very easy to read. They will make you pull them off.
