DRAG RACING RULES

  • Cars must be American made, 1963 and older to qualify to race on Friday night and all day Saturday - no modern cars, no newer muscle cars, no euro sports cars, no Volkswagons, etc. This weekend is focused on early American drag racing.
     
  • We are running 1/8 MILE RACES on the dragstrip.
     
  • Your car must pass tech inspection in order to race.  That means good tires, no loose pieces on car, no fluid leaks or any other safety issues.
     
  • Seatbelts and helmets are are required for ALL cars and racers - we want everyone to be safe.
     
  • To race in elimination races, you must return to the staging lanes after time trials and we will mark your dial-in time and class on your windshield.
     
  • During elimination rounds, racers will line up within each class and face off by dial-in time.
     
  • Your dial-in time is set by your fastest pass during time trials, no sandbagging and brakes at the top end - run as fast as you can, this is a race!
