TEXAS MUSCLE CAR CLUB CHALLENGE SERIES - RULES


    Consulation Race

      REVISED 02-01-2013:

      In order to run in the Consulation Race, a racer must have lost in one of the first two rounds of eliminations. Each club may pick two (2) cars from among those racers who lost in one of the first two rounds of eliminations to compete in the this class. This race will be start at the end of the third round of class eliminations. Electronics cars cannot run in the this class. You must be a member of a car club to run in this race. You must “sign up” for this race. The tower will announce the location of the sign-up sheet.

    Driver Rewards Program:

      While the Challenge events are primarily club against club events, a Driver Reward Program is available to recognize individual racers and encourage racers to run as many Challenges as possible. One must sign up for this program within the first two races each year. See separate rules or contact a committee member to find out more about the Driver Reward Program. There is a $20.00 annual charge to be a member of the Driver Reward Program. You can read more on the Driver Reward page.
    How to Accumulate Points for My Club and me

      Points are awarded during eliminations as follows;

      A driver earns one (1) point for each round, win or lose, up to the semi-final round.
      (Ardmore will be considered a long distance race and you will get 4 points for your first round pass)
      In the semifinal round, the winner(s), (who will go on to the final round), earn(s) one (1) point and the loser(s), who are the semi-finalists, each earn two (2) points.
      In the final round, the winner earns five (5) points and the runner-up earns three (3) points.
      Your individual points will go to the class in which you race at that particular event. At the end of the year, all of your points will be combined for drivers standings. (i.e. : if you race in King 2 races and Super in the remaining races, you will have points in each class to go towards the class winner, but the points will be combined for your total points.)

      A racer who races in nine out of ten races receives five bonus points. These are the only bonus points available.
    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) and Other Items

      Q: What is my club’s letter and how does my club obtain a letter?

      A: Your club’s letter is used to accumulate points for your club. Each driver in your club must show the club letter behind the car number and on the windshield. This is the only way we can keep track of points for your club. Your club can obtain a letter at the track by simply telling the tech inspector the name of your club at the time your car is teched. The tech inspector can assign a letter. However, it is better if your club requests a letter before the day of the event by calling Mark Buchanan at 214-727-4324(cell) or emailing him at bbuchanan8@juno.com. Once your club has obtained a letter, it is valid as long as you run Challenge events.


      Q: Can I bring two cars to the event and race both of them myself?

      A: Yes. You can bring two cars to the event and drive both of them as long as you buy two tech cards and race the cars in separate classes


      Q: Can I run the same car in two separate classes as long as I buy two tech cards?

      A: No.


      Q: Can my wife/husband/another driver run my car at the same event in a separate class as long as I buy two tech cards?

      A: No.


      Q: What if my car breaks down during time trials, can I run another car or my tow vehicle?

      A: Yes. But you can only run the other vehicle in the class in which it qualifies. For example: If your car runs in the Pro class and it breaks down during time trials, you can run your tow vehicle but only in the class in which it qualifies.


      Q: What happens if my car breaks down during eliminations but I still won my round? Can I run another car in the next round?

      A: No.


      Q: What if I’m picked for a bye and later, because the staging lane personnel miscounted or a car comes up after the bye was picked and the field is even, do I still get my bye?

      A: No. Technically, you are picked for a bye “if one develops”. If a bye does not develop, then you must run your opponent.


      Q: Are there buy backs at the Challenge events?

      A: No.


      Q: What happens if the event is rained out or track problems interrupt the program and it cannot be finished that day?

      A: The Committee and track personnel will schedule a rain date later in the season to finish the race. If the race is interrupted during eliminations, it will pick up where it left off at the time of the interruption. Information on make-up races will be posted on the website.


      Q: What happens if I discover that I am going to run someone in my own club during eliminations?

      A: Every effort will be made to avoid pairing two cars from the same club to run in eliminations until they have to. However, it is the responsibility of the driver to make sure that he/she is not running against someone from the same club in eliminations.
