General Race Rules
•Pour your own puddle race (glue only, no water burnouts). 2 burnouts max (tire turns it’s a burnout) All glue burnouts must be done behind the burnout line. A dry hop can be done infront of the burnout line.
•No Front End “Pecker” Extenders Allowed in Any Class
•All pairs will be done by random draws every round.
White Chip: Left Lane
Red Chip: Right Lane
Green Chip: Bye
•You can not double enter the same car in two different classes unless noted.
•Each race will start off flashlight start. Your crew member will bring you to the “ready” line and the flagger will pull you to the starting line. Once on the starting line, if you move forward before the light, it is a jump. Tire crack rule will be in place (if tire cracks after set by the flagger but before the light, it’s a jump). We will have a camera setup to determine any jumps or tire cracks.
•Crossing the center line results in disqualification. Tire must cross the center line, not the body. No out of bounds in the lane, hitting your wall does not result in disqualification.
•Flagger has final call no matter what. Camera will be at the 1/8th to determine close races, but call will be made by the flagger.
•When we page for your class, you will go all the way to the second shutdown entrance and pull into staging on the second half of the shutdown. We will run without you if you do not make the call in a timely manner.
•Each racer will receive 1 driver armband and 4 crew armbands. No one else will be permitted with the car on the line.
•0 Tolerance on test hits within Darlington Dragway property. If you do this, you will be disqualified, forfeit entry fee, and be escorted off the property.
•Be respectful of your fellow racers and show sportsmanship.
•If a car cannot crank or has a problem in the staging lanes, once their opponent reaches the burnout box they will be put on a 3 min timer. If car does not make the time, then they will be disqualified and their opponent will have a competition bye. Once both cars have crossed into the burnout box, if any car has issues they will have 2 minutes to resolve the issues before the competitor is given a competition bye.
•The only cameras used to make any calls are those of Darlington Dragway, we will not use an outside source.
