The use of pit bikes, golf carts, ATV's, bicycles and any other mode of transportation other then foot is prohibited. The only exception is for towing vehicles to the staging lanes or back to the pits.

We will have a wrecker on duty for on track breakage. Speaking of breakage, if you do break during a run, pull over as close the the wall as possible, that keeps fluids on the racing surface to a minimum.

Burnouts: Keep you burnout inside the allotted area, extent length burnouts or burning out past the starting line is acceptable only for vehicles without front brakes. Make all the smoke you like, just so long as you do it in the appropriate area.

Only one crew member allowed on the starting line, He/she must stay behind the car, except for backing assist on dragsters. No crewmember may touch the car during burnout or staging. No one under 16 allowed in the burnout or staging lanes.

Racers wrist bands must be worn on left wrist, show your wrist band to the nice lady each time you pass through the staging lanes to the line. No band, no pass.

Any instance of a non-registered driver found behind the wheel of any vehicle on the racing surface, will result in the car & crew's immediate expulsion from the show.

All cars must pass tech inspection based on common sense and basic racing/safety guidelines you would expect at any track.

Purpose Built Race Cars and Highly Modified entries will be more thoroughly inspected. The techs will be looking for such items as: drive shaft loops and expiration dates on belts. Have your SFI specs handy.

Vintage and Historic Race cars: Consideration to the history of these vehicles will be used when inspected

Open Headers are O-K

Cars with an aftermarket shifters require a reverse lockout.

Vehicles with highly modified engines require an approved transmission clutch/flywheel, blow shield or trans blanket as required by most racing regulations.

Foot brake starts only: Disarm any delay boxes, throttle stops, trans brakes, electric/air/CO/RPM operated shifters.

If your car has a rev limiter, and the linemen hear your car on starting line up against that limiter, during test and tune - no pass, in competition that is a loss.

If your car is plumbed for NOS, remove the bottle before leaving home, your car will be checked. No bottles on the grounds.

Cars must be in good working order. All wheel studs and lug nuts, cotter pins, hoses, brakes, steering, throttle linkage, and so on will be inspected

Cars must have full floor boards and firewall.

Drive shafts may not be open to drivers compartment.

Drinking, pot and open profanity are not allowed at the show.


Track Info

The blacktop racing surface is a section of airport runway, there is some cracking but overall the condition at Fitchburg is good enough to result in broken u-joints and ring gears.

The track will not be sprayed for traction, there will be water for burnouts.

Racing will be 1/16th mile (330'), shut down area 550'

Extra low gears and top condition brakes are your best friends, you'll need them both!
