2021/2022 RACE RULES  

These official rules are in addition to the Safety Rules and Operation of the Race

All All-American rules will apply for both days. All cars will be inspected, make sure your car complies with current AASBD rules. 

All cars must meet their minimum/maximum total weight for their division per All-American Rules.  A 15lb. max tail and nose weight will be allowed.

Car inspection will be done by the Race Director or SEGA committee member.  Be sure your car is compliant with the most current AASBD Rules.

After weigh-in, all cars must be parked in the designated area until pits are clear. No exception until eliminated from the race. If you want to work on your car between heats, there is a work station set up near the scales.

No scooters, rollerblading or skateboards are allowed in the pits or impound/staging area.

Have car “race ready” at time of check-in.   No spinning of wheels after weigh-in.

You can be weighed at random during the race.

Working on cars during the race or after elimination will be done in pits designated work stations. Torque or spindling may be done with supervision of race official or car handler from the SAME division as long as you DO NOT hold up the race.  ANY change in weights or if car is taken outside pit/work station area, you must be re-scaled with a race official or someone appointed by the Race Director.  

Car bodies must be fitted to the board – no overhanging the nose.  Nose screws should be secured.

RACERS/HANDLERS – Be sure to listen for your name to be called to not to delay race.  Lane Tickets will not be used.

Driver and handler responsible for the correct wheel swap which will be determined by the Race Director on race morning.

You may wipe the wheels only before rolling into the ramps. Once racers are set, there is to be no movement in the cars. One wheel of the car MUST be touching the stripe in the ramps. Please keep your time reasonable in setting the racer. Drivers will be allowed to get into race position in the ramps as follows:  30 seconds – stock and super, masters 45 sec.

With running by divisions, it is essential to have help with your racers.  You need someone to pull off the racer off the track or make friends quick and work together.  Racers should drive to the end of runout or cones.  DO NOT STOP AT THE FINISH LINE.

Drivers must remain in race position during the race.  Anyone moving in their cars, moving the ramps, caught scooting or changing their race position or “ducking” during the course of the race will be disqualified.

There will be a break between races only if time permits.

Centerline – if you cross the centerline at any time, including the run out area or hit the timers, you will be DQ.  You will also be financially responsible for the costs to repair or replace the timers or damage to another’s car.  Damage to an opponent’s wheels or car is the race family’s responsibility.

Top 4 racers in each division may be re-weighed. 

Sportsmanship is expected by the racer, family members and friends.

If you should have an issue with your car or another person’s vehicle, please find an Official immediately.  There are “Protest” forms available should a situation arise.  Once completed, please provide to a race official.  A committee of (3) will review the form and subject vehicle to provide a ruling.

Do not talk to the official at the Official Results table. 

We are asking that the rules be followed and that we are not put in a position to have to make a decision of disqualification.
