TIME TRIALS: Time trials will begin at the time scheduled. Every effort will be made to provide a fair amount of time trials for each racer before elimination's. There is no guarantee on the number of sessions offered. Racers should allow themselves plenty of time to make at least one time trial at an event. Time trials will not be offered to any driver after eliminations unless he or she has purchased a time trial tech card from the pit gate. Time trials for points racers will not be offered until after the completion of the second round of eliminations. RUN ORDER: The standard order for time trials and eliminations. is as follows: 5.7L and Under Late Model HEMI Outlaw Shootout 6.1L and Up Late Model HEMI Outlaw Shootout Late Model MOPAR Bracket Race This run order may be altered to accommodate additional classes, weather conditions, and car count. Stay tuned to the track PA system to be aware of any changes. Race will consist of matched pairings determined by track officials at the line. STAGING LANES: Once you are at the front of staging, you are required to be ready to race at that point. Ample time will be given to set delay boxes, tires, and such, but the driver must be in the car, strapped-in and wearing all safety equipment. You will be moved quickly to the racing area after you have been instructed to do so, Please be courteous to your fellow racers by being ready to race at the front of staging. STAGING: All competitors will be given a reasonable amount of time to stage their race car. Drivers having difficulty staging will be given two chances to properly stage the race car. You are allowed one roll through. Should you roll through once the tree has been activated, you will receive the red light. The second time you stage, you will have to accept the tree, regardless of how you are staged. The competitor in the opposite lane has the option to back out and restage if their opponent has rolled through the light once. DIAL-INS: Dial-ins must be posted on the vehicle before leaving the staging area. There may or not be a sign noting that dial in’s may not be changed past this point and reminding drivers to check their dial-ins before staging. "It is the drivers responsibility to check the dial-in before staging the car." All dial-ins must be posted on the tower side of the racing vehicle. Poorly written dial-ins make it very difficult to be entered into the computer and may not be accepted. It is the racers responsibility to make sure that their dial-ins are legible. The only time a dial-in can be changed is in the event of downtime. Once you pre-stage, you have accepted the dial-in as posted on the boards, it is the drivers responsibility to check the dial-in before staging the race car. There will be no re-runs as a result of a wrong or missing dial-in. *These rules are subject to track and time availability. Track officials may change dial in procedures at their discretion. BYE RUNS: If there is an uneven number of cars in the round. a bye run will be given by default to the racer with the best qualifying run, or best previous round reaction time as determined by officiating track employees. In this circumstance, the single racer moves forward to the next round with round points won. If there is an even number of competitors, the person with the best reaction time will not receive a bye run and the bye run is not cumulative. A driver may pass on his bye and then the bye will go to the next best reaction time. Once a driver has taken a bye run, he will no longer be eligible for a bye in other rounds, unless all the remaining competitors have also taken a bye run. RE-RUNS: From time to time, problems may occur that require a pair or pairs of competitors to have to be re-run in eliminations. It is the sole discretion of the Englishtown Raceway officials to engage in re-runs. It will be the policy to re-run pairs in the event of computer malfunction or other uncontrollable circumstances whenever possible. Each situation is different, and will be dealt with in the most fair and expeditious manner. At times a clear winner can be determined without the need for a re-run. Be aware that the practice of re-runs will be kept to a minimum. When the need arises, every effort will be made to accommodate the racers involved to allow them to cool down and rejoin the rest of the field in competition. Failure to agree to re-run will result in loss of round and round points. DRIVING IN MULTIPLE CLASSES: Racers may only participate in one HHP race category per event date. Competitors may race multiple classes throughout the season and amount season points in those respective classes. No point transfers will be allowed for points received from rounds won. Racer may elect to transfer registration (aka tech card) points only on a one time transfer before November 1st, 2008.
