We recommend you purchase a 2014 NHRA Rule Book which contains a complete set of rules.

Paid Parking Stalls

Parking stalls are marked with white squares and blue numbers. All stalls marked this way have been rented and paid for the entire season. Those with paid parking stalls may have one tow vehicle and race car and one personal vehicle with pit stall # card in window per paid stall. That vehicle must have the parking permit displayed in the windshield at all times. All vehicles in the pit area need to remain in their pit area. They are NOT to be used as general transportation in the pit area. All other vehicles will park on the North side of the Expo buildings.

Armory Area Restrictions

All of the area (six acres) leased to the Armory, including the grass, is OFF LIMITS TO ALL VEHICLES. You may picnic on the grass, but please do not damage or leave trash on it. The Armory lease actually extends five feet onto the concrete all the way around the perimeters. Technically, they could ask us to move out of our pit stalls.

Absolutely NO dumping of oil or any other product on the Armory Grounds!! Used oil containers are located between the storage containers behind the tower. Use them, NOT the trash cans!!

Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

AutoStart

Our starter is in control of the starting line. His or her decisions are FINAL. SRCA utilizes the autostart system. When both competitors are pre-staged auto start takes over.

Tech

Our tech personnel have the final say in any technical matters. He or she is specially trained in the area.

Dial-ins

Dial-ins and car numbers must be on left side of car. Poorly written dial-ins will not be accepted. Tower personnel must be able to read dial-ins at all times. One warning will be given if dials are too small or not legible. The next infraction will be grounds for disqualification. If you do not have a permanent number from NHRA, you will receive a track appointed number the first time you enter a race. Please use this number for the remainder of the season. It will help tower staff as they enter racers into the computer. SRCA contestant may change dial-ins between rounds. Contestants may not dial out of their eliminators. All dial-ins must be on your car and cannot be changed once you are motioned into the water box and past the yellow line in front of staging lanes. The competitors dial-in will be visible on both the dial-in boards and the score-boards.

If you feel a dial-in is entered incorrectly, DO NOT PRE-STAGE YOUR CAR until you are sure the dial-in is entered correctly. Once you have PRE-staged your vehicle, you are accepting race conditions “as is”. After this point, no other consideration will be given.

If a competitor competes in a category that provides the cross talk option and that competitor does NOT want cross talk, they MUST place an “N” by the dial-in number and be legible from the tower. It is the competitor’s responsibility to verify a minus sign in front of the flashing dial-in number on the scoreboard. If this is not correct, competitor must notify starting line official before staging occurs.

Burnout

No burnouts past the starting line unless NHRA rules state otherwise. No burnouts may start until motioned by a SRCA starting line personnel!

Staging Lanes

Once entering into staging lanes which is defined by the stripe, you must remain in that lane. When staging lanes empty, and one lane remains, the first car up will have lane choice, unless there is a bye car, then that car has lane choice. In final money rounds, cars lined up in the same lane will have to agree on lane choice. If this cannot be determined, a coin toss will determine lane choice. Staging will be routed around the armory. Do not come to the staging lanes until your class is called. It is your responsibility to listen to the PA system or radio frequency (88.5 FM) for class call. Lane one – Jr’s. Lane two – Left hand lane. Lane three – Right hand lane. Lane four – Left hand lane. Lane five – Right hand lane. Lane six – Bikes. Time onlys can run during time trials with respective class. NO TIME ONLY’S AFTER ELIMINATIONS START UNTIL COMPLETION OF THIRD ROUND. Deep staging will be allowed only with “DEEP” written on car. (This pertains to all classes except Jr. Dragsters.)

Time to stage
A reasonable amount of time will be permitted for drivers to stage. The time limit will be determined at the sole and absolute discretion of the official starter. Time limit will be activated upon being flagged into the water box.

Disqualification’s

Should a driver receive a red-light foul start and the opposing driver should cross the lane boundary line, the latter infraction would prevail and the driver committing the foul start would be reinstated. In determining lane boundary crossing violations, it is considered a disqualification when any portion of a tire completely crosses the painted center line. In cases where both opponents cross the centerline or contact guard wall, both drivers will be disqualified. Anytime it has been judged that excessive braking has resulted in loss of control that results in contact with the guardwall and/or light fixtures, or crossing the center boundary lines, the contestant will be disqualified. Contact with barriers, or any other track fixture (rubber cones, when used, are considered visual aids not fixtures) is grounds for disqualification and/or other actions. Intentional crossing of boundary lines to leave the track or avoid depositing debris on the track is not grounds for disqualification.

Buybacks

Paid Entries over 125  may buy back 1st round only. Paid entries between 100-124 may buy back 1st or 2nd round. Paid entries below 99 may buy back 1st and 2nd round. Buy backs MUST be purchased prior to the buy back rounds. Any participant that makes a pass (accepts the tree) without having purchased the buyback run, will be disqualified immediately from the event and have 25 points deducted from season points totals. Two incidents of the above action will result in the participant losing racing privileges at SRCA events. Only competitors who purchase their tech cards before the start of the first round of competition may exercise the right to buy back into competition. If you break in the pits or in staging you will need to let head of staging know you broke. 

Track Personnel

Track personnel can be identified by red shirts. Some personnel have radios. If you have any questions, contact a track employee and they will help you. DO NOT GO TO THE TOWER!

Time Only

Time only cars may time only during time trials in a like class that matches their car and once eliminations start they may start time only again after 3rd round is completed or when exception is made by track official. Example would be someone trying to complete their licensing runs. Any cars left in competition in any class are NOT allowed to time only between rounds.

Class Rules

The following section is intended to outline the class rules and regulations for each class.

All Classes

Nothing allowed on the door side windows or windshields that would impair drivers vision. Category dial and drivers name are allowed.
One functional taillight must be visible to the starter for the full length of the run and must be on when track personnel designate. Strobe lights are NOT permitted. Driver will be disqualified if taillight is not on when designated.  This rule also applies to BYE runs.

No multiple drivers in one car/bike entered in the same class. A vehicle may NOT be entered in a class with two drivers.

Warm Up Rules

It is mandatory that a driver be seated in the car in the normal driving position anytime the engine is running.  The practice of trans-brake testing, converter stalls, line-loc testing, and/or transmission warming is prohibited in all classes, in all areas of the event except in starting-line approach areas beyond staging, exceptions are if vehicle is on jackstands,  coupler or drive-line is removed from vehicle.. Non-compliance is grounds for disqualification or such other and/or action as deemed appropriate by NHRA.

Jr. Competitors may move to a different age category within the season, but may not take their points earned with them in the change of category.
SRCA is a NHRA Member Track and will operate by NHRA requirements and specifications. Your best source for the detailed safety, general guidelines, and bracket racing requirements for 2014 is the 2014 NHRA Jr. Drag Racing League Rulebook. All drivers must have a valid PARTICIPANT CARD from the Jr. Drag Racing League to be
eligible to drive.
Jr. Competitors will draw cards to determine what lane they are in and who they will run. Jr.’s will be called to the staging lanes with the first round of Sportsman class so that they can draw cards. The Jr. driver should draw their own card, however, if they are unable to draw for themselves the person in charge of the cards will pick a suitable replacement for that driver to draw in their absence. The bye run will be determined by the best reaction time from time trials for the first round. Bye runs for the following rounds will be determined by closest to dial in from the previous round. In the event there is an even number of cars, no bye run will be announced. A bye card will be put in the deck if the first one offered the bye refuses. The odd card drawn will receive the bye and CANNNOT REFUSE IT. The person in charge of the cards will be responsible for shuffling the cards and managing them during the card draw. Cards are to be returned to that person after pairings are matched. The drivers will find the competitor with the matching number or face card and that will be their competitor for that round. One card will be black and the matching one red. Black card is designated to the left lane and the red card the right lane. If there are 4 cars left in the semi finals, card draw continues. If there are 3 cars left in the semi’s and the 2 cars to be matched want the same lane, a coin toss will determine lane choice. The final round will be the same way if the two cars want the same lane, they will flip for lane choice.
Anytime a car is started in the staging lanes, a licensed driver must be seated in the car at all times.
Anytime car is started in the pits, the car must be on jack stands, or a licensed driver must be seated in the car at all times.

Re-Runs

From time to time problems may occur that require a re-run in eliminations. It is the sole discretion of the starter to allow re-runs for situations that may occur on the starting line. It is the policy of SRCA Dragstrip to re-run pairs in the event of a computer malfunction or other uncontrollable circumstances whenever possible. These re-runs will be determined by the tower personnel. Each situation is different, and will be dealt with in the most fair and expeditious manner possible. You can not change your dial, it must remain the same for the re-run.

Time Between Rounds

When 8 cars or less remain in competition in all classes, the following rule will come into effect. Upon the last car or cars leaving the starting line in their respective class, their next round will start in approximately 15 minutes.  This should give ample time for cars that are double entered or cars that require a little more attention to return to the staging lanes. This is at the discretion of the staging lane director. This will help keep the race moving.

Events can be rescheduled at tracks discretion.

Refund Policy

If a competitor breaks on or before their first time trial they will receive a rain check worth the amount of their tech card. If rain out check issued you will need to take the tech card to the front gate and they will issue you a new card. If you do not follow this rule your rain check will not be honored.Prorated refunds are NOT allowed.

High Wind Policy

On days with excessive strong winds the management has the option to switch 1/4 to 1/8 mile racing for the safety of participants. If the weather continues to deteriorate once the 1/8 mile call has been made the event may be cancelled due to safety issues. The wind must be 29mph sustained to initiate this policy. The Great Bend Airport weather station is used to determine the sustained wind speed.

Spectators

In the event of any uncontrollable cancellation prior to or during any attraction, no cash refunds will be made. Rainchecks will be honored for the next scheduled points race. If the event is stopped by weather, etc. at the end of the first round of competition, the even will be considered complete.

Controlled Substance Policy

Any participant found to be under the influence of any controlled substance is in violation of NHRA’s substance abuse policy and will be referred to NHRA for disciplinary action.

Participant Conduct

These rules apply to all racers, pit crew, and spectators alike. Please conduct yourself in a professional manner. There will be NO ALCOHOL allowed in the staging lanes or at any point beyond there. Absolutely NO glass bottles allowed in the staging lanes. No firearms or weapons are allowed on the grounds. If it comes to our attention that these items exist, you will be turned over to local authorities.

Electrical Hookups

They are NOT to be tampered with for any reason!! Any tampering will result in the loss of electrical power to that outlet and possibly all hookups. If there is a problem with an outlet, contact a track official and we will try to get it repaired as soon as possible.
