  1. When viewing the races, feel free to bring a blanket or lawn chair. We also have bleachers around the track and a wonderful hillside by the food stand to take in all the sights and sounds.
  2. Please be aware of your safety at all times.
  3. Alcohol is not permitted in pits or staging areas.
  4. If you are not racing, you will park in the grass around the race track. (Please see map)
  5. Please drive slowly when entering/exiting Road America, as there may be children in this area.


1) No Burnouts!

2) Riders are welcome (over 12 years old). If you have a two-door vehicle, only two people are allowed in the vehicle; if you have a four-door vehicle, four people are allowed. EVERYONE must have a seat belt on.

3) There is no limit on practice runs (as time permits). Just pull up to the line. We will release you, one car at a time. You may get in line in the pre-staging area.

4) No speeding after drag runs. SLOW DOWN!

5) If we have determined you have “red-lighted,” you will be notified on the backstretch.

6) You MAY enter in more than one Bracket ($15 each). Once you win the Bracket- we ask that you not participate in that Bracket for the next event. (Except for the Open Brackets).

7) When bracket racing begins, we will separate you into your “bracket.” Brackets are Dbl elimination and may combine brackets depending on the number of vehicles entered. Brackets are run in a respective order as well.

After each bracket run, you must stop in the designated stop area. The stop area will have proper signage that lets you know where to stop. Once you have stopped,  an Official will guide you on where to go. You must go into the pits if you are eliminated from your Bracket. We may split (break out) a Bracket if we have a large number of cars or have performance differences.

8) CYCLES are required to wear helmets, long-sleeved clothing, and closed-toe shoes.

9) No Buybacks.

10) Be aware that we will not tolerate stupidity. This means while racing or at any other time. People who may have consumed alcohol before or during the event WILL NOT participate. This is about having fun. Relax and enjoy the camaraderie.


You may do both…drag and shine and show. We will judge the shine and show around 8:30 and then award on track (time allowing). Park your car in the shine and show area. Our judges will be around to check your ride out.

Tech Officials determine your Bracket before entering the track. If you have any questions, contact them. They are located in the staging area. Additional Brackets may be added.

NOTE: You may be moved up a Bracket if we determine your vehicle does not meet the parameters of the current Bracket you are participating in. Be honest with the Tech Officials about what you have in or have done to your vehicle. Relax and have fun.

HANDICAPPED BRACKETS – Means the start of the race is handicapped. We try our best to line up cars as fairly as possible. Be aware that we are not always correct- help us- if you are part of the race. Do not enter this Bracket if this is an issue for you.

REMEMBER YOU MAY “Buy Back”- Anyone that loses in their Bracket may buy back into the Bracket. However, Buy Backs are single eliminations and must be purchased on back stretch as long as time permits.
