The booking fee for the 2001 season will be $7000. This is adjusted for 2-day events.
All races will make qualifying runs at the same time. No exceptions. Any runs made outside the scheduled qualifying session will not count towards the ladder sheet. Anytime a driver stages and the tree is activated is considered a run. If the driver has a problem and backs up to start again the run does not count.
Numbers will be drawn to deterime the run order in qualifying. In the first round of qualifying the odd numbers take the left lane and the even numbers take the right. Number 1 runs first in the left and number 2 in the right lane and so on. Durning the second round of qualifying the order is reversed with the person that ran last in the first round now runnning first.
All qualifying passes should be side by side unless otherwise specified.
DPS uses the same qualifying ladder as IHRA & NHRA with cars pairing up for eliminations as follows: 1-8, 4-5, 2-7, 3-6
The ladder is adjusted with the same format for a 16-car field.
Any member attending an open competition event on the same day of a DPS event will be penalized by not being allowed to compete in the next race. This does not include match races or national events only open competition for fast 8 events.
All members are asked to contact Ellis Milner at (706)582-3413, on Thursday prior to the race to confirm their plans to attend. This is to assure that there willbe enough cars at the event.
All cars are asked to meet the folowing weight requirements:
2250 lbs small block
2400 lbs automatic transmission
2450 lbs all others
2550 lbs 710 CI or more
The margin of error for weight is 10 lbs. Any car found to be more than 10 lbs light during eliminatios will be disqualified and will receive no points or money for that race. Any car found to be light during qualifying will have their ET from that round disqualified.
Ther will be a fee of $125 per race taken from the purse to pay the person that is weighing the cars.
Any driver may choose to protest another driver and have the engine checked for cubic inches. The driver that makes the protest is required to pay $50 to the driver in question. The engine will then be checked and if the driver is found to be illegal that person will lose all accumulated points for the year and will receive no money for that particular race. If the P&G results are found to be questionable an additional $50 will be taken from the points fund and paid to the driver in question and the head will be removed after the race and the engine checked.
If a car breaks after qualifying, but prior to the first round, the ladder will be adjusted and the car in the #9 postion will move into the #8 postion. The car moving into the #8 postion will recieve $100 of the qualifying money of the car that was unable to race. If a car breaks during eliminations that driver's competition that was previously eliminated may return to competition. The car that is broken will receive all money and points for that round. The car that re-entered the race will receive any money and pionts earned in future advancement. If the car that was previously eliminated chooses not to re-enter the race the fast loser from the previous round may re-enter the race. There is no longer a borrowed car rule in DPS.
Points will be awarded to each driver attending any race. There is a possibility of 8 points at each race. Points are awarded as follows:
3 points- Show/DNQ
4 points- First round loser
5 points- Second round loser
7 points- Runner-up
8 points- Winner
Points are awarded to the team, which may involve more than one driver of a particular car during the season or a driver that uses more than one car during the season.
The points fund consists of membership dues and $100 from each race. The money is used for the annual meeting, which is held on the first Saturday in February, trophies, and the remainder is divided between the top five points earners for the season. The payout is:
40% - First Place
20% - Second Place
17% - Third Place
13% - Fourth Place
10% - Fifth Place
Any car touching a boundary line during eliminations will be disqualified. The starting line official will make the call, which will be final. Any other behavior found to be unsportsmanlike is grounds for disqualification per the starting line official or any other track official. Although DPS has a set of guidelines we must still abide by each tracks rules.
These rules and amendments wer presented and voted on at the DPS Annual Meeting on 02/01.
