OFFICIALS
DRAG RACING IS A SPORT, THEREFOR, THERE MUST BE OFFICIALS TO OVERSEE THE EVENTS. WE REALIZE THAT THESE OFFICIALS MAY MAKE
A CALL THAT YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH. WE WILL TRY TO BE FAIR AND HONEST. THE COMPUTER IS ALSO AN OFFICIAL. THE COMPUTER HAS
THE FINAL SAY.
RACE PROCEDURES
1. ONCE A CAR REACHES THE FRONT OF THE STAGING LANES FOR A RUN IT MUST BE PREPARED TO FIRE AND RACE. NO DIAL-IN MAY BE
CHANGED AFTER EITHER CAR HAS LEFT THE HEAD OF STAGING. AFTER RACERS PROPER STAGING AND RECEIVING THE STARTER SIGNAL TO
GO,IT IS NOT ALLOWABLE TO RE-STAGE FOR A SECOND ATTEMPT. THIS INCLUDES ALSO QUALIFYING FOR THE HEADS-UP RACING.

2. PROPER STAGING IS THIS: BOTH CARS TURNING ON BOTH STAGE LIGHTS. ONCE BOTH STAGE LIGHTS ARE PROPERLY LIT, NEITHER CAR CAN
BACK OUT OF THE STAGE BEAMS. THE STARTING LINE OFFICIALS OR COMPUTER WILL BEGIN THE COUNTDOWN TO START THE TREE. IF YOU
BACK OUT THIS WILL NOT STOP THE COUNT OR THE STARTING OF THE RACE. THE ONLY THING THAT WILL STOP THE START AFTER BOTH
CARS ARE STAGED WOULD BE THE STARTING LINE OR TOWER OFFICIAL FOR SAFETY PURPOSES.

3. FAILURE TO STAGE WHEN SO INSTRUCTED BY THE STARTER OR OVER STAGING, OR LEAVING THE STARTING LINE BEFORE THE START
SYSTEM IS ACTIVATED, OR FAILURE TO LEAVE THE STARTING LINE BEFORE THE START SYSTEM HAS BEEN RESET WILL RESULT IN NO "E.T"
ALLOWED FOR THAT RUN OR DISQUALIFICATION.

4. ALL CARS IN STAGING SHOULD BE PREPARED TO RACE. IF CARS FAIL TO START WHEN PULLED FROM STAGING, RACER HAS 2 MINUTES TO
START VEHICLE BEFORE DISQUALIFICATION. ONCE IN WATER BOX YOU ONLY HAVE 1 MINUTE BEFORE DISQUALIFICATION. ONCE EITHER CAR
STAGES, THE AUTOMATIC TIMER TAKES CONTROL WHEN THE OTHER CAR PRESTAGES. THE PRESTAGE CAR HAS 20 SECONDS TO STAGE
BEFORE THE TREE AUTOMATICALLY BEGINS TO COUNT AND COME DOWN. THIS 20 SECONDS IS ENOUGH TIME FOR 2 TEN SECOND CARS TO
MAKE A PASS DOWN THE TRACK BACK TO BACK, IT IS AMPLE TIME.

5. ALL CARS MUST LINE UP STRAIGHT WITH THE STRIP WHEN MAKING A RUN. NO ANGLED STARTS. ONE CREW MEMBER IN HEADSUP CLASSES
MAY ASSIST IN STAGING THE DRIVER. NOTE: CREW MEMBER IS NOT TO TOUCH THE CAR ONCE IT LEAVES THE HEAD OF STAGING, UNLESS
THERE IS MECHANICAL PROBLEMS AROUND THE WATER BOX.

6.MOST VIOLATIONS AROUND THE STARTING LINE WILL CARRY A ONE TIME VERBAL WARNING DURING ANY ONE RACE. AT THAT TIME THE
RACE TRACK OFFICIALS WILL MAKE A JUDGMENT CALL AS TO WHERE UPON THE SECOND VIOLATION DURING THE SAME RACE, MAY RESULT IN
DISQUALIFICATION.

7. NO BURN OUT ACROSS STARTING LINE UNDER POWER FOR BRACKET CLASSES, WITH EXCEPTION TO RACE CAR WITH NO FRONT BRAKES.
THOSE EXCEPTIONS MUST BEGIN FROM THE WATER BOX. HOWEVER IN THE HEADSUP CLASSES BURN OUTS ACROSS THE STARTING LINE ARE
ALLOWED.

8.ANY RACE CAR THAT CROSSED THE CENTERLINE WILL BE DISQUALIFIED. NOTE: GETTING ON THE CENTERLINE IS NOT CROSSING. THE
STARTING LINE OFFICIAL WILL BE THE SOUL JUDGE OF THIS VIOLATION.

9. IN SITUATIONS WHERE A DRIVER IS MAKING A SINGLE RUN IN ELIMINATIONS, HE IS CONSIDERED THE AUTOMATIC WINNER ONCE HE STAGED
UNDER POWER AND RECEIVES THE START. THIS TRYING FOR LANE CHOICE WILL ALSO STAND. LANE BOUNDARY LINE CROSSING AND RED
LIGHT DISQUALIFICATION RULES DO NOT APPLY ON A SINGLE RUN OF ELIMINATION.

10. ALL CONTESTANTS MUST TURN OFF AT THE END OF THE STRIP AND KEEP THEIR SPEED TO A MINIMUM OF 10 MPH ON THE RETURN ROAD.
VIOLATIONS COULD RESULT IN DISMISSAL FROM RACE FACILITY.

REINSTATE YOUR OPPONENT.

ALL ATV'S MUST BE IDENTIFIED WITH THE THE RACER'S CAR NUMBER. JOY RIDING WILL NOT BE ALLOWED.

BYE-RUN RULE

16. ALL BYE-RUNS WILL BE DRAWN IN THE TOWER FROM THE PREVIOUS ROUND AND OR LAST TIME TRAIL AND ALL BYE RUNS WILL BE
SELECTED BY THE BEST REACTION TIME IN THAT PREVIOUS ROUND. IF MORE THAN ONE HAS THE SAME REACTION TIME THEN WE WILL TAKE
THE ONE CLOSEST TO HIS DIAL-IN. IF MORE THAN ONE HAS THE SAME, THEN RACERS CAN ODD MAN OR FLIP A COIN TO DETERMINE THE
BYE-RUN. ALL BYE'S WILL ROLL OVER TO THE NEXT ROUND, YOU WILL KEEP IT UNTIL YOU USE IT OR LOSE THE RACE. WE NEVER ALLOW OR
HAVE A BYE INTO THE FINALS, IF BOTH CARS WANT THE SAME LANE IN THE FINALS, THEN FASTER CAR WILL HAVE LANE CHOICE. BYE CAR
ALWAYS HAS LANE CHOICE.

17. IF AT ANY TIME BEFORE STAGING YOU FEEL THE TRACK IS NOT SAFE, STOP YOUR CAR AND NOTIFY THE STARTER.

18. 10 MPH AT ALL TIMES IN THE PITS, STAGING LANES, AND RETURN ROADS. PLEASE BE SAFE. PEDESTRIANS HAVE THE RIGHT OF WAY.
