NO RERUNS PRIOR TO THE QUARTER-FINAL ROUND - if a winner cannot be determined by computer then both drivers will be allowed into the following round. The Race Director MAY call for a re-run if needed to prevent an extra round of competition. No points will be awarded for the round in which the winner could not be determined.
Driver accepts track condition and dial-in when car is staged. Losing drivers will not be reinstated if the posted dial-in is incorrect. Please do not stage if something is wrong. Computer print-out determines race results.
Dial-ins must be posted 2 cars back.
No burnouts across starting line for cars with front brakes.
No sliding tires at the finish line.
Time runs in session - one per session. Open time runs will be run on Test & Tune events and Super Street when possible.
Bye-runs will be drawn before starting eliminations. Bye-runs will be carried over until used. After a bye-run is used or the driver is eliminated, a bye-run will go to best reaction time from the previous round among drivers who have not had a bye-run. Bye-runs are limited to 1 per race. Break byes do not count. A bye run may be declined by a driver with the bye going to the next eligible driver. The bye-run will be pulled out of staging by the staging director before the semi-final round.
Odd staging lanes run left land, even run right and as the staging director points to 2 cars at the head of staging that is a pair. Cars are not considered paired until this point and no break byes will be given until the staging director directs the two cars at the head staging to enter the restricted area. Pairings will be drawn starting in the semi-final round.
Car failure limit - 2 minutes in staging - 1 minute on track.
First car in line has lane choice when cars are in single file until semi-final round. Lane choice will then be by coin toss. The exception to this rule is that all drivers with the bye-run who have to run in eliminations will have lane choice until the semi-final round.
Drivers can race only 1 car in each eliminator and only 1 driver is allowed for each car. Driver may enter more than one eliminator in each event, but must use a different car in each. A driver MAY run the same car in Super Street and one of the other eliminators when the Super Street Series is contested.
If a car wins a round and breaks, both are out. Driver cannot enter another car after eliminations have begun. Drivers can substitute another car before the first round of eliminations.
NHRA rules are in effect. The "policies" listed here are in effect at all events conducted by Silver Dollar Raceway unless otherwise stated prior to conduct of event.
Cars must have working tail lights when running at night.
Sportsman eliminator is foot-brake only. No trans brakes or delay boxes. Pro ET is now a "no box" class which does allow trans brakes and two-steps, but no delay box. If so equipped, prohibited devices must be rendered unusable to the satisfaction of the tech director. Compulink's "Auto Start" is used set to NHRA specs and deep staging is allowed, but the auto start is active.
No switching lanes during eliminations. In order to insure "random pairing" drivers may not switch after committing to a lane.
Zero tolerance of alcohol and drugs for drivers. We reserve the right to administer a breath test when alcohol use is suspected. No alcoholic beverages or glass containers are allowed in staging lanes.
At least one portable dry chemical fire extinguisher of rating of a at least 12 BC will be required for each pit space as per Georgia State requirements. (See Rules of Safety Fire Commissioner 120-3-18-10) Pit space is that area occupied by each trailered race car.
