Free entry for driver and up to 5 crew members. Teams must contact Gerald Kramer at 641-780-3534 prior to the event with their car info to assist with promotion and rig length for parking. $100 entry fee for teams that attend without prior announcement.

 

We will have some cash and product contingency awards available for the participants of this event.

 

Both qualifying sessions are not mandatory. We expect that all cars will make the 1st session qualifying run as the track expects spectator attendance Friday Night.

 

 

At the end of the qualifying sessions, if an A Class car cannot make first round they will be awarded ½ pay for first round ($500) and an alternate car from the B Class will be offered their position. Ladder will not be adjusted – alternate car will replace the broken car. This offer will begin with the #9 position car (1st qualifier in B Class) and be extended to lower qualified cars if the first alternate wants to stay in the B Class. Alternate car will receive ½ pay ($500) for round one and full round pay should they advance. The B Class ladder will be set after an alternate has been inserted into the A Class.

 

During eliminations if a car cannot make the call then their opponent will have a competition bye run. The race director may ask the quickest loser from the previous round to participate in this round as a “Match Race” entry to provide a good show for the fans, but will not be allowed to advance. All cars need to stage and break the starting line beams to receive round pay. Failure to stage and break the beams (if you are shut off on the line, do a burnout only, etc.) will result in ½ pay for the round.

 

Intentional and/or deliberate reduction in performance may result in a penalty. The penalty (reduced payout) is at the sole discretion of the race director.

 

Please be prepared to send out thank you cards and/or letters to the sponsors after this event. A list of sponsor names and their mailing addresses will be provided at the race this year.
