After a show car is registered and displayed, it will be reviewed by a panel of judges through out the day. Winners will be presented their trophies and prizes during the awards ceremony.


    1)Car Show

    If you want everyone to see your car, enter it into the car show! Audience parking will be far from the action.

    2) Bracket Racing- Why YOU should race…

    EVERYONE has a chance to win no matter how fast or slow their car/bike is!!! Bracket racing, or handicap racing, works as follows…
    Practice runs are made in order to get a feel for how fast the car/bike will run. For example: say you make three runs and they average 12.50 seconds. You may choose that as your dial in time and shoe polish that time on your window. You will be paired against another vehicle, faster or slower. The slower vehicle gets a head start determined by the dial in time. Say the other vehicle dials in at 13.00…he'll get a .50 head start.
    The object is to beat your competitor to the finish line without going quicker than your dial in time. If you "break out", or go quicker than your dial in, you lose, unless your opponent breaks out worse than you or red-lights (goes before the light turns green) or crosses the centerline (drives into the competitors lane). Bracket racing pits driver against driver, with little regard for how fast the car/bike is. If you think you are a good driver, enter this category!
    It is the driver's responsibility to make sure the dial in time on your vehicle is correct. If you stage with the wrong time, there will be nothing we can do. If your dial in is wrong, alert the starting line official BEFORE you light the top bulb on the tree. Bracket cl***** work off a full, sportsman tree (starting light), or a ".500" tree. The tree will light up like this… yellow, yellow, yellow (hold), green (GO!)

    3)Heads up racing

    Heads up racing works as follow… Both racers start off at the same time. The first car to the finish line wins. As simple as that! So if you think you have a fast car enter this category! The Heads-Up Class works off a Pro-tree, or a “.400” tree. The tree will light up like this… yellow (hold), green (GO!)
