This year’s event includes:
- 3S Challenge
- Drift Challenge
- Burnout Contest
- Drag Racing
- Dyno Challenge
- Car Show
- Dirt Destruction
- A large vendor midway & much more!
Can my friend and I be placed in the same run group?
Run groups are selected as you register, make sure to speak with your friends BEFORE you register. Run groups can not be changed once you purchase them.
I can no longer attend, how do I request a refund?
Unfortunately, no refunds will be issued. The only exception is any unforeseen circumstance that would prevent the event from happening. In this case, full refunds would be issued.
I have a co-driver (parent & child, couples, friends, etc). Can there be more than one driver registered for one car?
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.
