QUALIFYING: Qualifying for all eliminators will be by allocated sessions.
Competitors should note that the start line officials may give instructions as
to which lane is to be used during qualifying. During qualifying the staging
lanes are deemed to be closed for an eliminator’s session at the advertised
start time. Once a vehicle has started and moved into the starter’s hands
(started when called upon and moved towards the start forward of the control
tower) it is deemed to have completed the qualifying run. All qualifying passes
are to be paired runs except in the case of uneven numbers in an eliminator.
All competitors are to ensure they are in the staging lanes when bracket is
called. In the event of a tie for top qualifier’s position on elapsed times the
vehicle achieving the time first will be awarded the position.

notified they will not be reseeded.

BURNOUTS: Water/Static burnouts on concrete pads only. VEHICLES MUST BE KEPT MOVING FORWARD to avoid
