 LANE CHOICE –Use lanes 1-3-5-7 (ODD) for LEFT lane. 2-4-6-8 (EVEN) for RIGHT lane. In eliminations where we get down to cars wanting the same lane, cards or pills will be drawn for lane choice, not fast car (this rule change was voted in during the banquet). NO SWAPPING of lanes, once past the rear of staging line you are committed to the staging lane you are in. You can be disqualified for switching lanes. Track has option to pair cars.

 STAGING 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.

 PIT VEHICLES - You must be a licensed driver of your state to operate a golf cart, 3-4 wheeler, mopes, mini-bikes, etc. NO ONE under the age of 16 will be allowed to operate these vehicles. You will be warned once, and DISQUALIFIED the second time to whom ever the vehicle belongs to.

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. One crew person is allowed on starting line behind starter, everyone else must be behind the line. All Top ET cars coming to Modified must have the delay box out of the car to compete. No swapping of drivers or cars once you complete the first round or if you buy back. 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. Deep staging is not guaranteed, If you hesitate and drag around while going DEEP the tree may come on. You must be going DEEP at a forward motion, don't stop at stage. You must have DEEP written on your windows. It is advised for DEEP stagers to go in first. Please use a safe speed of 15 MPH on the return road. 5 MPH in the pit area. WATCH FOR KIDS! Touching or crossing the center line disqualifies racer. 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.
