2013 SHAKEDOWN AT THE SUMMIT Rules

General Rules For The 2013 Summit Racing Equipment SHAKEDOWN AT THE SUMMIT presented by Mickey Thompson Tires:


General Rules and Race Procedures

I. SUMMIT RACING EQUIPMENT SHAKEDOWN AT THE SUMMIT PRESENTED BY MICKEY THOMPSON TIRE Rules: All competitors must follow these General Rules and race Procedures in addition to the rules for their particular class.

II. Call to Lanes: There will be three calls to the lanes. If a car is not ready to compete, with diver belted in, when class is called to the starting line, the opponent will be granted a competition single.

III. Qualifying: Every attempt will be made to initially qualify cars in the lane you wish. Due to time restraints if single lines form, cars will be dispersed every other car to an open lane. Run lane will be marked on stage ticket. It is mandatory to alternate lanes after initial qualifying pass. Lane choice goes to higher qualifier first round. After the first round lane choice goes to the lower E.T. from the prior round.

IV. Bye Run: All vehicles must take the tree and attempt a pass under full power down the track to be considered a win.

V. Waste Oil: Collection centers are provided throughout the pits. Waste oil must be dumped in these bins. Contaminated oil must be placed in provided barrels marked CONTAMINATED OIL. CONTAMINATION MEANS ANYTHING BUT PURE USED ENGINE OIL (brake clean, Carb Clean, Anti-Freeze). Safety-Kleen provides collection as a courtesy. Please respect the service.

VI. Contingency: It is the competitor’s responsibility to fill out a contingency form and have it verified at the scales. Competitor then turns contingency form in at pay out suite.

VII. Pay Out: Payout suite is located on the east side of track at guest services (in the Quarter Mile Clothing Company).

VIII. Driver / Vehicle: All NHRA safety rules, license, chassis requirements in effect

IX. Oil Containment: All vehicles will be required to utilize an engine oil-retention device. The lower engine containment device must cover the sides of the block and pan up to one inch of the head-mating surface and extend within 1 1/2 inches of the front and rear of the cylinder case area. A belly pan may be used in lieu of a device attached to the engine. The belly pan must extend from frame rail to frame rail and extend forward of the harmonic balancer and to the rear of the engine block and must incorporate a minimum 2-inch-high lip on all sides. A nonflammable, oil-absorbent liner mandatory inside of retention device. Any device that fails to perform as required must be replaced or repaired to the satisfaction of the technical staff prior to any further runs.

X. Disputes: All Event Directors’ decisions are final. Event Directors include the Race Director, Tech Director and the Official Starter.

XI. Clarification: All clarification must be submitted in email form to mycomments@summitmotorsportspark.com.

XII. Rule Revisions: In order to maintain a level playing field, Summit Motorsports Park will monitor the performance numbers of the numerous combinations and power adders found in this event. It may be necessary to adjust the minimum weights, ground clearance, and wheelbase to help promote class parity. Parity changes will take place before Q1.

XIII. Multiple Entries: A vehicle may only be entered in one class by one driver. The vehicle may only be entered in one class during the Shakedown event.
