Click here for a Digital version of these rules

In addition to the General Flashlight Drag rules, the NO-PREP rules lised below will be used.

These events are intended for street-cars and trucks only.

  1. The racemaster/Official has final say in all calls and discrepancies.
  2. All races will be 1/8th mile, heads up, from a dig.
  3. Each racer will be allowed only 2 crew members which will be set at the drivers meeting and receive wristbands. Once the cars are staged all Crew members must be behind and off the concrete part of the runway.
  4. This is a NO PREP race. Staging will take place just in front of the burnout box safely out of the water to give the racers and cars the best possible chance to put power down. This allows for the first 70ft of the race to be on concrete.
  5. All racers must attend a mandatory drivers meeting before each round. During the drivers meeting the racemaster/Official will go over the rules and do pairings.
  6. Pairings and lane choice will be decided with a chip draw. At each meeting call outs can be made instead of drawing chips if both racers agree.
  7. Each racer can only draw one BYE. Competition byes do not count towards this.
  8. The starting light will be the classic FLD flashing light tree. Racers will be staged manually .
  9. WATER burnout only!
  10. If you jump the start it will be up to the official to make the call. If there is a dispute the start camera will be reviewed.
  11. Crossing the centerline will result in disqualification, unless the race is over.
  12. If a piece of your car comes off and goes into the other lane IN FRONT of your competitor you lose, unless the race is over.
  13. There will be ONE 10 minute call to the lanes. When the time between rounds is up, you must be in the staging lane or you can be disqualified.
  14. All cars must be able to pass a safety inspection and meet the class rules outlined on the next page. Drivers are required to wear all required safety gear, according to the NHRA/IHRA handbook for your vehicles ET. Track staff will have final say on safety Concerns.
