As I look around the field of cars at any regular IHRA event I see a group of potential competitors we believe have been ignored in our sport. It’s the people with bone stock cars that never go down the track because of the perceived thought that they are out classed. They look at our Hot Rod Trophy eliminator and see cars with open headers, slicks, gutted interiors etc. and think they’d never have a chance of winning a single round.
That is about to change with the inclusion of our highly successful Friday Night’s True Street eliminator. The rules are simple: The eliminator is open to all cars and trucks, both domestic and imports. Modifications are limited to: Computer re-flash, Performance air intake. and you can swap out the stock tires for a DOT radial. With these rules it makes for a level playing field for our rookies. The cost to enter is the same as Hot Rod Trophy at $25. The winner and runner up will receive trophies. The winners trophy being a JR Iron Tree.
That’s the rules, pure and simple. Come on out with your Mustang, Camaro, Challenger, Honda, Subie, EVO, Accord and have a fun day at the Beaver.
Classes restructured for 2015
After watching the gradual changes in racing habits over the past 3 years we are adjusting our classes to reflect the reality of Friday Street Racing. Classes will be streamlined to make for more competitive racing. By joining classes, it will become more competitive by making larger classes and there by meaningful when you win.
