    AGENDA FOR THE DAY

    Track will be fully prep'd so expect excellent traction.  Unlimited passes on the track during 5 hours of test ‘n tune/grudge racing session.  Wait time in the staging lanes should be minimal.

    Open Drag Racing Session: 10:00AM - 3:00PM
    Competitors choose grudge matches or just line up and race.  Dial in your best E/T which will determine whether or not you make it to the finals in your respective class. Drag radials or slicks are recommended but street tires are allowed.  If there are a lot of vehicles with street tires, lane 2 will be designated for street tires or drag radials/slicks and lane 1 will be drag radials or slicks only.

    LUNCH SERVED: 11:00AM - 1:00PM (Test 'n Tune & Grudge Racing will continue while lunch is being served)

    Drag Racing Top Gun Finals: 3:00PM - 5:30PM

    Both lanes 1 & 2 will be fully prep'd for drag radials/slicks for heads up competitive racing.  This Top Gun finals session will include the Top 8 cars from each class test 'n tune/grudge racing session which will be seeded into a single elimination bracket based on E/T time slips. Cars will be placed in each bracket based on E/T time slips "fastest vs slowest".  Your best E/T will determine seeding and which bracket class of competition you will compete in during the finals.  For example, if you run a 10.99 E/T and you registered to compete in "Daily Driver" class, you will be bumped up to the Street Racer class and not be allowed to compete in the Daily Driver class. 

    Every competitor is allowed to compete in a maximum of two drag racing classes plus the roll racing class for a maximum of 3 classes.  The exception to this rule is a competitor is not allowed to compete in two E/T bracket classes.

    Roll Racing Top Gun Finals: 5:30PM - 6:30PM

    Advance “buy-in” required at time of registration.  Payback is guaranteed based on a full draw of 16 entries for any class of driver who wants to compete in a single elimination roll racing bracket.  Big 3 manufacturer non-Cadillac V-Series vehicles may compete in this class.  You will get 1 “practice” roll race pass before competition begins.  First round pairings will be determined by a blind draw to be placed in the bracket. Winners will continue to advance to next round in bracket until the champion is crowned.

    The left lane will always be designated as the pace vehicle.  Vehicles will be staged approximately 200 feet behind the starting line "tree" and will be traveling 30-40MPH when they enter the launch pad.  Both vehicles MUST remain side by side within one half car length and the "tree" will go green.

    Award Presentation to Class Champions: 6:45PM - 7:00PM

    A total of seven TOP GUN Champions will be crowned from the Drag Race and Roll Race events.  Special recognition and awards presentation for "Top Gun" drag race finals and roll race finals.  All class champions will receive custom laser cut steel award plaques.
