In the event that racer wins a second race with a double break out of 9.99 or faster they will be DQ'd and his/her opponent will be declared the winner. DQ'd racer will not forfeit any winnings he/she is entitled to.
Example - Racer A dials a 10.01, Racer B is dialed a 12.21. Both racers break out with racer a running a 9.98 and racer b running a 12.03. If first infraction racer a will be declared winner but will be warned they can run into the 9's again. If second infraction racer a will be disqualified and racer b will be declared the winner.
Race Vehicles stalling/Restart policy: In the event that a competitors vehicle fails to start upon being give instruction to move from the bottle neck/final staging area into the burnout box, he/she will be given 1 minute to start their vehicle and proceed to the burnout box. In the event a racers vehicle stalls after completing the burnout, he/she will be given 45 seconds to restart their vehicle. Failure to start in either situation within the aloud time will result in a competition bye for the other racer. Countdown will be done by highest ranking personnel at the starting line (Charlie fallowed by head starter fallowed by head of staging)
Motorized Vehicle Policy: All motorized vehicles are for race operations only, NO JOYRIDING, see NHRA Rule Book for specifics.

Tires: All tires are/will be allowed on our track. However, there are a few restrictions. Slicks and Drag radials will be allowed to line up where ever the driver chooses to line his/her car up. All street tires WILL be "coned" (see description below), no exceptions.
A cone will be placed out in the inner groove of the lane directing the vehicle to move over slightly and out of the groove. This will be done to any vehicle running street tires, radials, or has been deemed by the starting staff not fit to run in the groove. If a cone has been placed in the groove in front of you, please move over to the outside of said cone and proceed with your run. DO NOT attempt to get as close as possible to the cone and/or line up at an angle to attempt to enter the groove immediately after leaving the line. Any contact with the cone and/or lining up purposely at an angle will result in being pushed off of the line and sent to the back of staging, a second infraction will result in suspension from running for the day.

Time Trials/Qualifying: Wait in pits for your call to staging. We run 3 rounds of time trials (unless adjusted for weather/other issues). Time trials can be made only in the class/s a racer has entered. Ex. a Super Pro competitor can not make a time trial with Pro ET (unless he/she has signed up for both classes), he/she must only run when Super Pro is called for time trials. Quick 16 and Jr. Dragsters are the only classes who qualify during morning time trials and are laddered for first round. All other classes are random draw first round, qualified and laddered off of reaction time in first round eliminations.
E. T. Dial-In: It is your responsibility to post your dial-in on the tower side and front windshield of your entry so that the tower can easily read it, and also remember it is your responsibility to check the scoreboard for your correct dial-in before pre-staging. As soon as a driver moves there vehicle into Pre-Stage, that drive has accepted his/her dial-in and must make the pass using that dial-in. Dial-In's will NOT be changed for any driver who pre-stages but then back out before the race has started.
Dial In Note Dial-in's can NOT be changed once you have crossed the yellow line at the end of the bottle neck just before entering the burnout area.
