Well, if you're going out to win in HS, a bone stock type 89 will
probably not do all that well.  If you're a very good driver and run
some good tires may do well.  I personally would rather run in a
tougher class and be able to run better suspension and tires and have
more fun.  That's just me though, I'm one of those crazy guys that
runs in SM and is going around turns sideways half the time.  Not the
fastest way, but it is the funnest:)
