FAQ’s about Street Drags:
Q: What are they?
A: Street Drags are drag races using street vehicles. They are held on a short “drag strip” (300-feet for cars, 275-feet for cycles) using the front stretch of the race track.
Q: How many cars participate in each race?
A: The Street Drags are drag races. Only two cars in each race, both vehicles are in their own separate lane.
Q: Would my car have a chance at winning anything?
A: Absolutely! We have at least nine different brackets. Our goal is to put similar style and powered cars/trucks/etc. together. It makes for better racing and is a lot more fun for the competitors and fans.
Q: What about non street-legal, specialty, or “real” drag race cars?
A: Sure! Bring ‘em! That’s what that “Open Competition” class is for. As long as you can “hot lap” it and get it shut down before the trees, we’d love to have you!
Q: Do you do ET’s (Elapsed Times)?
A: No. This is not a serious, all-out drag race. The event is about having fun and speeding without putting that risk on the streets.
Q: How many times do I get to race?
A: During the “Grudge” racing, as many times as time permits. Note: Grudge racing means you against your buddy, or whomever…advantages (“handicapping” – in car lengths) are given, If you so choose. For the Brackets, typically you will have to lose twice to be eliminated. The number of cars will determine the “elimination” number. You can always “Buy Back” into your bracket. With a “Buy Back” you may continue to compete until you lose again (single elimination).
Q: Can I race in more than one Bracket?
A: Yes. However you must move “up” to a stronger Bracket.
Q: Who can race?
A: Anyone over 16 years old with a parent or guardian release on file. For those over age 18, no parent or guardian needed.
Q: Do I need a helmet?
A: Cars – No. Cycles – Yes (plus pants and a jacket – leather). Seat belts are mandatory!
Q: Can I have a passenger?
Q?: What happens if I win my bracket?
A: Way to go! …you win a trophy, and we will put your photo congratulating your achievement on the website.
Q: Is there a protest procedure?
A: NO! If you take this too seriously, we prefer you not race. This event is just a gathering of automotive enthusiasts that can do some racing and HAVE FUN. We do not tolerate stupidity, nor any participant that drinks alcohol prior to racing. Again, this is about having some clean, old fashioned fun…period.
