Attn: Racers.

Starting this Saturday June 3rd we are starting a new tie-breaker procedure for Dash for Cash. In the past we drew cards for the first potential bye and split the money with the tied racers. This Saturday, June 3rd we are going to start using your reaction time from your Dash for Cash run as the tie-breaker. We are not going to best package for dash for cash. This is only a tie breaker. Closest to the dial will still win dash unless it's a tie. For instance: If you and another racer both run dead on your dial with an 0 and you had an .009 reaction and they had an .020 reaction, you would win dash for cash. You would get the money and the 1st potential bye. The main reason to do this is for ties down the list that can be overlooked. This way all the ties will be settled when the list is printed. In the unlikely event that racers are tied with dial and reaction we will have to use a card draw.

Starting this Saturday May 20th we are starting a new procedure during time runs. To speed up the program during time runs when we have cars in one lane only we will be paring them up. The car at the head of the line will have lane choice and the car behind them will have the other lane. We know some will not like this but last week it would have saved us an hour of time. If you really have to have your lane I would suggest coming to staging as soon as your class is called.

We also want to encourage you to come to the tower and get registered as soon as you get to the track instead of waiting until 1:45 to do it. We have waited to start time runs until the line in the tower cleared out. We can't hold up the program each week for this to happen. We are going to make every effort to start time runs at 2:00 each week. If you miss your first time run you'll have to fall in with another class to get it. If the Dash for Cash round has already started you may not have a chance to get a first time run.

These changes should help us get you guys home at a reasonable hour when we have big car counts or a lot of classes scheduled. Other changes may be required.

Attn: Footbrake racers. If you are also running Super Pro (Top) and use a delay box in that class please remember the delay box needs to be unhooked (disconnected) before running in Footbrake. This will keep you competition from suspecting you of using it in footbrake. The starter and other track staff are always watching for any suspicious movements or actions of the car and driver. Please help us with this issue so we don't have to ask you to remove the delay box between classes.
