BATTLES - In
the event, drivers don't want to Pre-Stage or Stage, both drivers' will be
pointed in. Then, both cars will have 90 seconds to stage, after that a
five count warning will be given by the starter. If the racers still
refuse to stage after that they will be backed off and will race (same
pair) at the end of the round. A driver can't get out of the car and must
be ready to race when called. If they both still refuse to stage after
being moved to back of staging they will be Disqualified and receive NO
Round Money or Refund.

allowed to operate these vehicles. You will be warned once, and
DISQUALIFIED the second time to whom ever the vehicle belongs to.
MORE RACE INFO - Dial-in must be on car before leaving staging,
no changing of Dial-Ins after leaving the staging lanes. All windows must
be rolled up. Dial-Ins and Car Numbers need to be on the drivers side and
front windows so we can get your Dial-In correct! They need to be READABLE
from the tower. Don't Stage if Your Dial-In is Wrong: Check your Dial-In
on the score boards in the water box. Those crossing over need to check
their competitors Dial-In also. Courtesy Staging will be used in Top ET. If a
competitor puts both bulbs on before the opponent stages, the starter will
direct him/her to back up. Excessive braking at the finish line evident by tire smoke or other car
control issues are grounds for disqualification. Drug or alcohol use while
competing is automatic grounds for dismissal from the track.
