The Juniors will run vehicles 11.90 and slower separate from other entries until one 11.90 vehicle remains.  Junior 11.90 and slower vehicles will have their own bye run per round until one 11.90 Junior remains and is mixed in with the rest of the vehicles left in competition.  11.90 and slower entries must dial 11.90 or slower throughout the race.
  • First round bye determined by random draw of tech cards.  Remaining bye runs will be determined by best reaction time of the previous round.  In the event of a tie, the tiebreaker will be closest to dial (excluding breakouts).  If there is an even number of cars the bye run has lane choice.

  • No competitor will be allowed to have multiple bye runs unless all remaining competitors have already had one.
  • racers will run the lane they select when pulling into the lanes.  When only 1 lane of vehicles remain a card pull will determine lanes for the remaining pairs and high card gets lane choice.
  • If weather shortens a race, payout will be split among the winners of the last completed round.
