Procedure Update.

 

Pre-race:

  • First entry to officially sign up earns the right to qualify last when the lane is all cleaned and rubbered up.
  • We will follow this pattern and the last guy to sign up qualifies first. 

 

Race day:

  •  All drivers will get 1 minute practice with every entered car.
  • The Driver who has the fastest lap in practice qualifies all the cars on the Blue Lane.
  • Tires will be cleaned with the tape roll pre-qualifying
  • Post qualifying impound rule is in effect.
  • Motors may be checked for Falcon II stamping.
  • A car that needs an unapproved adjustment or repair goes to the back.
  • Winner gets first pick at the door prizes, from there it is round robin by finishing position (if we get any sponsor donations). 

Any questions, concerns, comments or requests ?

PM or post in discussion thread.

:excl: Set-Up information update:

 

  • Track Braid Depth is .040"    ==========

 

For best handling please set your guide flag spacing depth accordingly. :thank_you2:

 

 

Also -  

Most of the cars have three races on them, if you've been in a bunch of wall shots consider a new guide flag as wall shots on the oval can be 'postbusters'
