For Autocross – two drivers CAN use the same vehicle however, both participants MUST purchase the "Fun Run" option. Neither driver can be eligible for competition or prizes. Unfortunately, due to our method of keeping track of points and standings, only one driver per vehicle for the Grand Champion competition. Example: Two drivers in one vehicle with one number will throw off any results if they are not recorded properly. One driver per vehicle helps ensure that all standings are accurate throughout the entirety of the event. Two drivers may register the same vehicle for two different drag race classes but, at least one of the classes must be an index-style run class. Two people may not register the same car in the car show.
