High School Drag Racing League

Post by wayneg on Sun Nov 20, 2011 9:05 pm

My name is Wayne Griffin I have been in some talks with Jackie and Wayne to start a HSDRL class to run at both tracks alternating months. What we are looking for is opinions on rules and so forth. What we have come up with so far is 7.0 max time in 8th no slicks and no electronics car must have tags and insurance student must have license or permit and maintain a c average in school. We would like to develop something that would bring the youth back to dragracing and try to start it when the season kicks off in 2012. The more the better and we will plan to have some type of meeting this winter to set up dates and rules.
Thanks

We will be working on the rules on Dec 17 the idea is that you must have your license or permit to race. If you want to be in on the meeting we will have lunch (1 o'clock) at Golden Coral in North Little Rock. The more input the better we could make the class.

HSDRL rules and schedule (Tenative)

Post by wayneg on Thu Dec 22, 2011 12:32 am

Ok these are the tenative rules for the HSDRL class also the first race is planned for March 10 at Prescott then the 2nd saturday of each month alternating between Prescott and Centerville with the Championshiop being at Centerville. Any opinions of rule changes will be taken and discuss with both track owners and HSDRL officials.
Rules for Competition

1) You must have a driving permit or legal license to compete.
This requires a 2.0 grade point to obtain, and grade points will be verified for those students who are invited to compete in the Championship race. If a student does not have a 2.0 grade point at the time of verification (end of September, first of October), they will not be invited to the Championship Race, regardless of the number of accumulated points during the race series.
2) A DOT approved helmet must be worn while competing.
3) A shoulder strap style restraint harness/seatbelt must be worn while competing.
4) The vehicle in operation must be licensed, registered and insured, meeting all state and local requirements for safe operation on the roadway.
5) All standard track rules for street class cars are to be followed.
6) Vehicles will be required to pass a visual inspection for competition. Any decision by the track officials as to the competition readiness of the vehicle will be binding and non negotiable.
7) All tires must be a DOT street radial tire as would be supplied from the factory. No DRAG RADIALS will be allowed-no exceptions!
Cool No trans brakes, stutter boxes, throttle stops, air shifters, 2 steps, etc.
9) No Non-factory power adders such as NOS, turbos or superchargers. VIN numbers will be verified for factory equipped super-charged vehicles. It must have been installed on that vehicle from the factory, not just across the carline you are operating. No exceptions!
10) NO Air Conditioners are to be run in staging lanes or on the track.
11) No excessive drips (oil, coolant, tranny fluid, etc).
12) All vehicles must be equipped with a functioning coolant recovery tank or “catch can.”
13) All participant vehicles in the HSDRL will be required to have a HSDRL sticker.
The sticker signifies registration and confirmation of the vehicle the student uses for competition and must be on file for the specific student. An HSDRL sticker will be placed on the windshield once the vehicle is confirmed. A student may use any qualifying vehicle during the race series, but that vehicle must have a sticker and be registered to that specific competitor. Only a vehicle that has been registered and raced during the series will be allowed to compete at the Championship invitational that year.
14) 7.90 Index. This means that a competitors vehicle cannot run faster than 7.90 in the 8th of a mile.
15) Bracket race with full tree
16) No buy-backs
17) “First is worst”. A red light will finish you for the day, even if your competitor breaks out that round.
18) Breakouts will remove you from competition for the remainder of the race day. There is only one exception to this, and that is in the event the other competitor red lit in the round, when you broke out (First is Worst). You will receive the win and advance to the next round, BUT YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE THE POINTS FOR THAT ROUND.
Example: A competitor red lights, and the other competitor breaks out with a 7.89 to finish the round. The break out gets the win, and advances to the next round but WILL NOT receive the round win points (1 if Semi round, 2 if Final Round).

POINTS TOWARD SERIES AND CHAMPIONSHIP RACE

A competitor must participate in 5 of the 7 races in the series in order to be invited to the Championship at the end of the race series.

You will receive 5 points for every race you enter, regardless of the number of rounds you compete.
Every round winner will receive 1 point for a win.
Bonus Points:
Final Round Winner: 2 Points
Runner Up: 1 Point

Demerits: In the event of unsportsmanlike conduct or actions on the part of a racer or their support personnel, that is deemed sufficiently heinous, points or partial points won on that race day CAN be taken away from the racers and schools accumulated total. This will be at the decision of the track and HSDRL officials, and will require a majority agreement.

The racer with the most accumulated points at the end of the 7-race series will be awarded Series Champion.
The school with the most accumulated points will be awarded Series School Participation Champion.

You will receive 5 points for every race you enter, regardless of the number of rounds you compete.

On rule number 4, why does vehical need license and insurance? Have a car for daughter to race but will not be her everyday driver. Car will be left at track most of the time. Have another car to trailer to track.

Just what was decided by the panel. Everybody felt like cars should be street legal as if student would drive them to school this keeps it more even for all racers
