QUICK 16 CLASS

We're always looking for the fastest cars topping out the drag strip and to find them, we created the Quick 16! The Quick 16 Shootout is a fast, loud, and wild class designed to showcase extreme Door Cars, Dragsters, and Altereds all in one Shootout. With Top Sportsman, Top Dragster, and Altered vehicles in a qualified field with competition conducted in a dial-in ET format. This will be a 1/8th mile race on a .500 sportsman tree with scoreboards on. It is "run what you brung", but the car must meet NHRA safety requirements for the times it runs.

This class is ideal for any of those scenarios. The class will run throughout the entire weekend. There will be a staging lane specifically for No-Time racers during Grudge Test-N-Tune. When this lane runs, the boards will not be lit.
