The Sportsman class uses an Index for the dial-in time. Each racer’s quickest qualifying ET ( out of 2 rounds in consistency class) will be used to set their Index. This will be set to the one-tenth of a second (.1) quicker than the racer’s ET. For example, a qualifying time of 4.28 would set an Index of 4.20. Entries can run no faster than 3.80 to run this class. Racers must run consistency class to get qualifying time.


The Pro class uses an Index for the dial-in time. Each racer’s quickest qualifying ET ( out of 2 rounds in consistency class) will be used to set their Index.

Anything goes. Each vehicle makes two passes. The vehicle with the most consistent two ET’s wins. This is determined by subtracting your faster time from your slower time to determine the difference. Who ever has a difference closest to 0.0 is the winner. If two or more people run the same ET, then they will run off until winner is determined. For example, vehicle 1 has ET’s of 4.0 and 4.1. Vehicle 2 has ET’s of 4.0 and 4.5. Vehicle 1 wins because the time difference is 0.1 which is closer to 0.0.


Same as Consistency Class rules.


Kids will race atv’s, go carts, golf carts, etc. that can run no faster than 6 seconds in 200ft. This is a consistency class so they will make two passes, the vehicle with the most consistent two ET’s wins. This will be ran side x side but consistency is the name of the game, reaction time does not matter. Tether kill switches on all vehicles were you are not seat belted on, standard kill switch on all others.
