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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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 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.
