MINIS / PEEWEES / JUNIORS

The Minis, Pee Wees, and Junior brackets run like Sport Bracket, with "handicapped lights."  Dial-in is the responsibility of the attending adult.  Handicap may be waived at the race committee's discretion.  The brackets are determined by age.

Minis

Ages 5-7 years, ET no father than 11.00 seconds.  ET quicker than 11.00 seconds will be a disqualifying pass. An ET quick than 10.00 seconds will disqualify the driver for the day.  Maximum engine size allowed is 110 CC.

Pee Wees

Ages 8-10 years, ET no faster than 9.00 seconds.  ET quicker than 9.00 seconds will be a disqualifying pass.  An ET quicker than 8.00 seconds will disqualify the driver for the day.

Juniors

Ages 11-13 years, ET no faster than 7.00 seconds.  ET quicker than 7.00 seconds will be a disqualifying pass.  An ET quicker than 6.00 seconds will disqualify the driver for the day.

Junior Sport

Ages 14-15 years, ET no faster than 6.50 seconds.  ET quicker than 6.50 seconds will be a disqualifying pass.  An ET quicker than 5.50 seconds will disqualify the driver for the day.

SPORT/QUAD

The Sport/Quad Bracket is determined by the performance of the vehicles themselves.  Fairness and absolute equality are assured by using a "handicapped" starting system whereby a slower car gets a head start electronically, via the "Christmas Tree," over a faster car.  Since the racers determine their own dial-in, a stock "week-end" racer has as much of a chance at winning as the seasoned driver.  These cars are run on a "full tree" and indexed to the dial-in provided by the driver.  Trophies are awarded for sport bracket.

ELIMINATOR (PRO)

Eliminator Bracket consists of predetermined "brackets" consisting of an ET of .1 second.  This allows a racer to build a car specifically for a particular bracket.  These cars will be run on a "pro tree," with the driver providing the dial-in.  Cash is awarded in each Eliminator Bracket.

CLASS

Class Brackets are determined by the construction and the weight to cubic inch ratio of the vehicle.  All vehicles run a class index with handicap light.  Cash is awarded for this bracket.
