______________________

 

The Track:

The track length is 132 feet (scale ¼ mile) We call this no prep meaning we only sweep the racing surface; no traction additive is applied to the surface.

 

The Race:

The two basic types of racing we do are called

“Cash Day” and “Top Ten List” we normally do each type at a day of racing.

 

Cash Day:

This is a cash buy in (10-20 dollars per racer) winner take all. All drivers draw a number from a hat each round, the hat contains two of each number, after all the pairs race the winners will do another draw to pair up again, this will continue until there is one winner.

 

Top Ten List:

This is a list of the top drivers at our track, to become number one you simply must challenge the driver above you on the list, beat him and you can move up and take his spot, lose and you have to wait till the next event to challenge. If the higher challenged driver loses their spot, they are allowed one rerun option to get their spot back.

 

Points

1+ point earned per round you win.

1+ bonus point for making the finals.

+1 point earned winning the finals.
