BYE RUN:        First round is awarded to the competitor that records the lowest Reaction Time R/T in the final round of time trails. That driver must have recorded an ET that is within the Eliminator parameters on the qualifying run. If no bye run is available then that person has lane choice.

DIAL-IN:        BIKES- Required to be on a Dial-In plate. CARS- Required to be on both side windows and windshield. Dragsters and altered must be on a visible body panel. Please do no place Dial-In on tires. The Dial-In will be displayed on the scoreboards. Verify the correct Dial-In is the sole responsibility of the competitor If the Dial-In is incorrect do NOT stage. Simply point to the scoreboard and the starter will notify the tower correct your dial-in. Please take the time to write legibly. What we see is what you get. Note: Dial in must be finalized before the car moves to the front position in the staging lanes. Drivers, be Sportsmen, No game playing with Dial-Ins.

EXCESSIVE BRAKING: As stated in the IHRA rulebook, a participant is subject to disqualifications for any condition considered unsafe, unfair of out of order in the inters of safety, if any track official perceives that a driver has intentionally engaged in excessive braking in order to avoid running under, that driver will be disqualified. Excessive braking will be defined by, but not limited to, locking the brakes, smoking the tires, and swerving due to braking on top end. Dial your car correctly and run a safe race.

LANE CHOICE: Lane choice is determined by coin toss between the drivers before entering the water box. The only exception to this is in the first round of eliminations. Holders of low R/T from the final qualifying time trails have the right to lane choice if no bye run was available. Remember Sportsman at all times.

PAIRINGS: All eliminators will be paired at 8 cars or less based on R/T as much as possible. Any eliminator that has less than 8 cars will be paired for the first round of eliminations. Pairings will be based on your R/T in the previous round. Bikes are paired for the first round of competition based on their R/T from the final round of time trails. If you missed the final round of time trails, notify the tower to be put on the pairing sheet. It is a driver’s responsibility to make sure they are on the pairing sheet. Failure to do so is not grounds for re-instatement. BSD reserves the right to change pairings procedures when necessary.
