2021 General Rules

General Rules

All cars and drivers must meet NHRA rules and regulations and participating track rules and regulations. Your 3 day average will determine your position in all classes except the 10.00 index. All rulings of any track officials is final. Vehicles must be street legal, licensed, and insured for highway use.

Rules will be enforced and subject to change.

The total mileage for the route is 340 miles

Drag tires are required for racing. You can either make the trip driving on them or change them at the track. Drag tires are defined as 100 tread wear rating or lower numerically. Radials, bias ply slicks, etc., just no hard as a rock street tires tearing up the racing surface. I would advise changing to a dedicated drag tire. The track operators and other racers appreciate it. Hard street tires tear the rubber off the track and create bald spots.

If your race vehicle has to go onto a trailer or be towed in any manner at any time, you will be disqualified. It must run 100% of the time on its own power. Pushing by hand is accepted.

You are not allowed to tow your race vehicle from track to track. You have to carry anything you will need for the weekend in or on your race vehicle or pull a trailer with your race vehicle. We are not having any size restrictions on the trailer you can pull.

We are not regulating the vehicles your family or friends may be following along with. We welcome and encourage you to bring them to this event.
