- Our classes are determined by time brackets and
vehicles competing must meet the safety rules for the bracket they will be
competing in. In some cases
that may present problems, since you may not know what bracket you will be
competing in when you register. Therefore,
Racers may be asked to have their vehicles reinspected once they have done
several time trials.
- Elimination’s will be run similar to NHRA rules.
NEORVCA recognizes that the ideal situation in any drag race is to
determine one (1) winner and one (1) loser; thus the policy is that should
both vehicles in one (1) race foul, the vehicle fouling the least will be
reinstated and the other vehicle will lose.
(In final round, loser will finish second).
NEORVCA will have full responsibility in cases involving dual
disqualification or electrical problems with timing devices.
In cases when competitions are called from staging to race and an
individual car has a problem – the competitor will be given three (3)
minutes to make it to the starting line under his own power.
A vehicle must stage under its own power.
Once two vehicles are called from staging, they are the only two
vehicles that can compete in that round.
If one cannot make it to the line within 30 seconds after the first
vehicle stages, the lights will run down and the first vehicle will by-run,
then fall to the end of the proper lane (winners or losers).
lane boundary crossing violations will be left entirely to the discretion of the
NEORVCA officials. Contact with
guard railing, barriers or any other track fixtures is grounds for
disqualifications. In situations
where a driver is making a single run in eliminations, he is considered the
automatic winner once he stages, and receives the start.
(No time will be given on a by-run).
