Sometime in the next couple months we're going to try and organize a race day for everyone to get together. There are talks about June 14th or any weekend in July.

If you have a preferance let us know. We want to try to lock down a date by the end of the week.

And your car doesnt have to be fast, it doesnt even have to be modded at all. It's just for fun! :D

There is a plan for Saturday the 19th of July.

Check out the info on the night races at California Speedway

I've always wanted to race my car. Even though I know I would be damn lucky to be hitting high 15's, I dont care, I just wanna have fun.

Who all will be able to make it? It's 2 months away, dont tell me that you already have plans! Common people, lets get together and have some LEGAL fun with our cars!!!

I'm planning this ahead of time so we can get some attendance. Let me know if anyone is interested in attending.

Ok Ladies and Gentlemen,

It's 5 days away as from today.

There have been some changes to the track times.

Track will open at NOON!!! Tech Inspection starts at 2:00PM. Races start at 4:00PM!!! Racing is concluded at 11:00PM!!!

I will now post the RULES that are found on the site as posted in the first post of this thread! Read them CAREFULLY!!!! If You have a Loose Sub Box, TAKE IT OUT!!! It's part of the rules!!!!!


California Speedway said:
California Dragway Rules - Updated 05/28/02
Tune Car Radio to 104.7 for announcements

ALL NHRA STREET LEGAL RULES WILL APPLY AND GOVERN THE EVENT (NHRA Rule Book supercedes all California Dragway rules)

Basic Technical Requirements
Vehicle must have current vehicle registration, license and a valid proof of insurance (must have all documentation with you at time of registration). NEW FOR 2002 – Cars can be brought into the speedway on Trailers and approved racing slicks are permitted. All vehicles must enter off of Cherry Avenue. The speedway is located at 9300 Cherry Ave., Fontana. Cost - $10 per person to enter the speedway and $10 for a Tech Card to race your vehicle ($20 total).

Under 18: Anyone under 18 years of age must have a parental permission form completed and signed to race. If parent is not present on race day, the form must be notarized and submitted with registration materials. A new form must be completed on each race day. The form does not carry over from race day to race day!

10-Second Rule: There is a 10-second flat ET rule. No cars quicker than 10 seconds will be allowed. (If you need an NHRA Competition License to drive your car at an NHRA Drag Strip, it is too quick for California Dragway.)

Vehicle: no water, fuel, oil or trans leaks.

Electronics: No aftermarket electronic devices allowed (throttle stops, delay boxes, etc.)

Exhaust: Must be routed through street legal muffler(s). All runs will be monitored on a decibel meter (100db at 100’ from the strip). If it is too loud you will not be allowed to run. NO EXCEPTIONS! It is your responsibility.

Tires: Aprroved Racing Slicks are Permitted, as well as Street legal DOT approved treaded tires, front and rear required on all vehicles. Tires will be inspected for overall condition.

Wheels: All wheel studs, with lug nuts required. Broken or missing studs/lugs must be replaced before racing. Hub caps/wheel covers must be removed for inspection.

Lines & Hoses: All fuel, transmission, brake and power steering lines must be secure and free of leaks. Neoprene fuel lines limited to 12” overall.

Radiator: Overflow catch tank mandatory on all vehicles and no leaks.

Driver: Must have valid state driver’s license. No shorts, bare legs, tank-tops, bare torsos, bare feet permitted when racing. (Insurance requirement).

Helmet: Required in all vehicles faster than 13.99 seconds. Helmet must meet SNELL 90 (effective Jan. 02) or better standards (must have label inside of helmet).

Seats: Must be securely fastened to floor or frame with minimum 4 attaching bolt and nuts. No sheet metal screws.

Seat Belts: All cars and trucks must have as a minimum, an O.E.M.-type lap belt system, securely mounted to frame or floor.

Batteries & Ballast: Batteries must be secured per OEM, or with minimum of 2 (two), 3/8” diameter bolts (no straps, bungee cords, wire, etc.). Loose ballast is not permitted on the racetrack, so be prepared to empty trunks and interiors of all loose items. Spare tires, jacks, etc. must be securely mounted or must be removed. Tools, jack stands, coolers, loose speakers, wheel covers, etc. are considered loose ballast and are not permitted on the track. If you don’t need it, or don’t want to leave it unattended, leave it at home.

Neutral Safety Switch: All vehicles must be equipped with an operational Neutral Safety Switch. The neutral safety switch prevents the vehicle’s starter from turning the engine over unless the transmission is in Park or Neutral (or unless the clutch pedal is depressed with a manual transmission).

Nitrous Oxide: Bottles must be stamped as meeting DOT 1800-pound standards and must be securely bolted to the frame or floor (no bungee cords, hose clamps, etc). All fittings, hoses, etc. must be compatible from same manufacturer, vented to outside of driver compartment.

Roll Bars & Cages: Roll bar required in any vehicle running between 10:00 and 11:99 E.T. (convertibles between 11:00 and 13:99). Roll bar / cage structures must meet minimum NHRA standards as found in the 2002 rulebook.

Motorcycles: Must be registered for the street, front and rear brakes, chain guards, ignition cutoff switch, and functioning snapback throttle mandatory. Any pressurized container (air shifter bottles, nitrous bottles) must be stamped as DOT 1800-pound standards. Leather jacket, gloves and leather (above ankle) shoes mandatory (up to 120 mph; over this speed-full leather is required). Full-face helmet labeled as meeting SNELL 90 or better Mandatory.

Convertibles: All racers participating with convertibles that are quicker than 13.99 seconds MUST wear a helmet.

Note: When elapsed times are quicker than 11.99 specialized racing equipment is required. For example, when a roll bar or cage is required, so is an approved 5-point shoulder harness assembly. If you know or suspect that your vehicle will exceed these ET limits, we suggest contacting the NHRA Tech Department at (626) 914 4761 with your questions.


After Tech Inspection
Move your car forward and walk to the “Tech Registration Table” Where you will show I.D., sign a release of liability and get a wristband for restricted area access. Once you have completed registration, return to your car to have your number applied to your windows. You may now find yourself a “pit” location (10’ X 20’ max per car).
Hear the Call
Tune your car radio to 104.7 fm for the Speedway’s PA announcements. All categories will be called to the staging lanes at random rotation. Listen for your category to be called. Please DO NOT come to the lanes until your category is called. Be sure to bring your “RUN CARD” and have all safety items in place with seat belts on. Also, leave all loose items out of vehicle.
Rev it up
When you get to the back of the staging area, you will be directed to a lane. At the front of the lane you will be asked for your “RUN CARD”, get it punched and proceed as directed.
Burn – Out!!!
You will be directed to the “box”, where a 5 second burn – out is permitted. On the Starting Line Official’s signal, roll your car forward until the top two small yellow bulbs on your side of the christmas tree are lit… STOP. You are now STAGED and ready. When the tree is activated, you will see 3 amber bulbs flash ½ second apart then GREEN…GO!!! GO on the GREEN. Hint: Try to leave on the last amber for a better reaction time.
Top Speed…
After crossing the Finish Line, let off the gas slowly apply the brakes. Stay in your lane and drive to the end of the track, turn left and return to the pits, stopping at “TIME-SLIPS” booth. Return road speed limit is 15 MPH.
Quiet Please
In our continued efforts to be good neighbors, we will be enforcing our “zero tolerance” policy for decimeter readings over limit. Also, please be considerate of what our neighbors think of us when leaving the facility…Drive Safely
California Speedway reserves the right to deny participation and revoke all rights and privileges pertaining to this event.

No Alcoholic Beverages or Glass Containers are permitted on the premises.




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

California Dragway Rain Policy
In the event of rain or precipitation in the area of California Dragway, speedway personnel will not start selling tickets for spectators until after it has stopped raining. There will be no refunds for spectator tickets once purchased.

For Street Legal racers, if you purchase a Tech Card and do not get an opportunity to make a pass due to rain, speedway personnel will stamp your run card and it can be used at a later California Dragway date. If you get a least one pass in and have a punched run card, there are no refunds.
See you all there!!! 8)

Yea... not gonna race.

I'll keep what little pride I have left, thank you. Maybe after I either dump some serious $$ into this thing or just give up and buy a real car.


Besides, this thing has to start Monday morning...
