Vehicles can register for the trophy competition or open runs. Registration type and class must be selected at the time of online registration, or on-site before racing begins that day.

All drivers registered in the trophy competition will be competing in a race shootout on their respective registered day(s).

Qualifying: Drivers may do as many passes as possible from 9:00 AM-1:00 PM.  At 1:00 PM the top four (4) qualifying vehicles in each class will move on to the Semi Finals.

Semi Finals: The top four (4) qualifying vehicles in each class may do as many passes as possible between 1:00 PM-3:00 PM. A minimum of one pass must be made between 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM to potentially move on to the next round.  At 3:00 PM the top two (2) qualifying vehicles move on to the Finals.

Finals: The top two (2) Semi Final vehicles will report to grid at 4:00 PM for the final run. The final run of each day will determine 1st and 2nd place for each class. Both vehicles will line up and run at the same time, with the fastest trap speed on that pass taking 1st place, and the other taking 2nd place. There will be no reruns

Both 1st and 2nd place drivers are required to be physically present at the trophy ceremony to collect their trophy once racing ends each day.

Trap speeds for each round will only apply to that specific round. Trap speeds from previous rounds or speeds ran outside of the competition time frame will not count toward the competition.

If a registered vehicle does not advance to the next round, it can still make open runs until racing ends each day, but will not qualify for a trophy.

Trap speeds for the race shootout will only apply to that day. Trap speeds set in runs on Saturday will not count for Sunday’s race shootout.

Drivers may only enter one class at a time. A driver cannot register a vehicle in multiple classes per day.

Any competitor may request for race officials to inspect any competitor car to check the validity of the vehicle and the class entered at any time before trophies have been presented, whichever occurs first. Requests after this time will not be accommodated.

Drivers may change classes between Saturday and Sunday.  (For example, a Mitsubishi Evo can race in the Sedan class on Saturday and decide to race in AWD on Sunday as long as these changes are in place before the first race occurs on Sunday morning).
