RACE DAY POLICY'S
Field Size and Ladder:
Pro Modified will qualify for a 32-car field (with Alternates) and will be put on a 32-car Pro Ladder. If less than 32 cars enter, we will follow the NHRA "Official Ladder" for the field size....
After each qualifying and elimination pass, all cars must stop and weigh at the track scales. If you lose in eliminations, and your opponent fails to make weight you will be reinstated into the eliminations only if you made minimum weight requirements. If both cars failed to make minimum weight, both cars will be disqualified. It is the driver's responsibility to verify with each track scale, the weight of his/her car prior to each race day. There will 5lb error factor allowed.
If there are more than 32 cars qualifying for the 32-car field, we will start inserting alternates (To replace broken qualified cars) starting at spot 33 and so on... If you are an alternate, and a spot opens up, you will be inserted in the 1st available position before the drivers meeting on Sunday morning. This will give the qualified cars overnight to get the cars repaired.
TOW BACK & TOW VEHICLES:
All Pro Modified entries are allowed to tow to staging lanes and to the track scales with a golf cart or other similar small tow vehicle. All carts will be subject to search by a SCSN Official at any time.
Alternating Lanes During Qualifying:
Each Pro Modified driver must alternate lanes during qualifying. If you choose to ignore this rule, your second consecutive pass in the same lane on the same day will be disqualified.
The Auto-Start System will be turned on with a 7-sec timeout
All vehicles must take the tree, and run down the 1/4 mile
