Club Racing Briefly Explained:

How to know what race you are in?
- For the qualifiers, there will be several sheets posted. These are called the heat sheets. These will identify what race number you race in and what fellow racers you race with. This list will be the same for the first and the second qualifier. Following the qualifiers, there will be a new set of sheets printed. These are called the mains. These will again, identify what race you race and what fellow racers your race with. Pay special attention to the order of names in your race. This will be the order in which you line up on the front straight to start your race.

Electric Qualifiers:

- From the time the clock stops, which is as soon as the last car crosses the line from the prior race, there will be just 2 minutes on the clock until the next race starts.
- This is enough time to get situated on the drivers stand, and take just 1 lap around the track.
- During your 1 lap, make sure you cross the loop so that you are checked in.
- Do not take another lap and do not go backwards down the straight
- After you have successfully checked in, immediately turn around and stage at the start of the front stretch in front of, not on, the loop.
- Please listen to the RD to make sure you are checked in properly.
- The RD will call you out by name to start your race.
- Do not leave until your name has been called
- You are racing the clock, not each other
- When a faster car comes up on you, take a wider line and let them past, you are racing the clock, not them.
- Race your qualifier and do not pull into the pits until the RD calls you by name and says you are done.
- Pull into the pits safely after your race to avoid impacting another driver who may not be done yet.

Nitro Qualifiers:

- From the time the clock stops from the prior race, there will be 3 minutes only on the clock. 
- This is enough time to get situated on the drivers stand, and take a couple warm up laps to warm up the motors. If your motor requires more pre-heat, please pre-warm up the motors outside the main gate. Your pit guy can walk the running car into pit lane as soon as the last car has crossed the line from the last race.
- During qualifiers, the starting clock will be on live loop format. You will be on your own to make sure you are fueled up and well positioned to make sure you cross the loop before the first guy crosses the loop for the second time.
- Please listen to the RD to make sure you are checked in properly
- You are racing the clock, not each other
- When a faster car comes up on you, take a wider line and let them past, you are racing the clock, not them.
