We will make our best effort to give every racer two time trials on Friday and one on Saturday. If you are competing in the Gambler race and lose 1st Round you will be allowed to run your second time run with the non-gamblers. If the need arises, we will have a special session Saturday morning for the Race of Champions participants, and then fill in between ROC rounds with the remainder of competitors.
Gambler Race and Dash for CashOn Friday there will be a Gambler Race. There will be 6 classes: Super Pro, Pro, Sportsman, Motorcycle/Sled, Jr. Thunder and Jr. Lightning. Entry fees: Super Pro - $50; Pro - $40; Sportsman, Bike/Sled, Jr. Thunder, Jr. Lightning - $30. The Gambler Race will begin at 8 a.m. on Friday. If you are eliminated in the first round of the Gambler race you may get a second time run with all non-gamblers. Once a person has had two runs down the track their day is complete. The exception is for those Gambler racers that are still in competition after the second round.
The Dash for Cash will take place on Saturday for racers who are not a part of the Race of Champions. During Saturday morning’s time trial session, racers who sign up can dial in, and the top 16 drivers in Super Pro, Pro, and Sportsman with the best total package will run for cash and a trophy in each class (any Motorcycle/Sled racers can enter Pro). Entry fee for all classes: $20. Sign-ups for the Gambler Race and Dash for Cash will take place at the NHRA trailer.
Oil-Retention DevicesAll racers in cars running quicker than 9.99 seconds in the ¼-mile or faster than 135 mph, must have an oil-retention device equipped.
If you are racing in a car running quicker than 14.99 please do not use antifreeze in your vehicle. Antifreeze is very difficult to clean up and excessive delays could cost your fellow competitors valuable time on the track.
Pairings and Lane Assignments
All classes will be called to the lanes in sessions. Each team will be assigned specific lanes and sessions throughout the event. From those assignments, a random draw will be made to pair the lanes for each elimination round.
The driver in each class with the best reaction time during the first time run on Saturday will earn the potential bye for first round on Sunday. During subsequent rounds, the best winning reaction time will have earned the potential bye for the following round. For the Race of Champions, the first round bye will be based on a random draw, with the best reaction time earning the bye in following rounds.
Lane choice will be done by a coin toss at the head of the lanes.
Each team is allowed 2 team captains. Team captains will handle any and all problems or discrepancies that one of their competitors may encounter. Only one team captain will be allowed in the tower at any one time. Any disputes must be brought to the event director by a team captain. Division Director will rule on any issues and have final say on such.
Summit Series Decals
Each competitor will be required to run the series decal for the duration of eliminations. Those not having the decal will not earn points for team or be eligible for any prizes or awards.
Contingency Decals The NHRA Trailer will have a very limited supply of these. All racers are encouraged to have and/or get decals from the manufacturer prior to the event. Decals must be on vehicle for duration of eliminations. The contingency verification will take place after the race, but will be checked against photos from earlier rounds to see that decals were in place.
ET Finals Rules and Regulations
All drivers will be required to have an NHRA Membership and License/Competition number prior to the event. Contact your track officials if you need assistance.
All classes, with the exception of Bike/Sled, will be run on a five-tenth full tree with optional staging.
Deep staging will be allowed, but it may not be written on the vehicle, nor will the starter make any changes to the starting procedure for those deep staging. Those deep staging assume all risk and must get in first as Autostart will be on for ALL categories.
Bike/Sled will run on a split tree. Racers wanting a Pro Tree must put a P at the end of their dial (i.e. 9.00P). Look for a U on the scoreboard prior to your dial-in.
CrossTalk will be used in Super Pro only. Racers not wanting CrossTalk need to place an "N" at the end of their dial-in (i.e. 9.00N). Look for a U on the scoreboard prior to your dial-in.
Racer accepts all conditions of the race including dial-in, crosstalk, and tree type (.400 tree for bikes) once the vehicle is pre-staged.
No passengers will be allowed in any vehicle during time trials or competition.
Dial-ins and numbers must be on the front, right side, and rear windows
Shoe polished numbers are only allowed in Sportsman and High School.
Dial-ins must be displayed prior to leaving the head of staging lanes and entering the ready area, and may not be altered beyond that point unless OK’d by the event director.
Once a driverpre-stages their vehicle, they have accepted the posted dial-ins on the scoreboard .
Excessive braking may be grounds for disqualification. Starter and/or Event Director will have final say on issuing a warning or an expulsion. If a warning is issued, any subsequent infraction will be grounds for immediate disqualification.
Any racer or crew member found to be under the influence of alcohol or other substances, during racing hours, will be immediately excused from the event and the facility.
All tech cards must be filled in completely and legibly, front and back, being sure to indicate your team name or designator at the TOP of the tech card.

High School racers will also be able to enter either Pro or Sportsman on Sunday. No Motorcycles or electronics allowed. If Saturday’s race is rained out, High School will be contested on Sunday. If that happens, High School competitors can only run one class with one car, and must race a separate vehicle in Pro or Sportsman.
Jr. Dragster drivers are eligible to make runs during the Test & Tune on Thursday. Friday is time trials and a Gamblers race. Saturday is the Race of Champions (Division Champion) and Sunday the Jr Dragsters will compete with their team for the Team Championship. Each track may send up to six drivers.

In that case, the parent or student (not both) can run time trials on Friday, the student would compete in High School on Saturday, and the parent would compete on Sunday. Under no circumstances can a car make multiple runs in a time trial session, regardless of who is driving. Drivers are allowed to compete in a maximum of (2) classes provided they have a separate car for each class.
