New changes for 2019: (Super Pro / No Electronics / Jr Classes)
This year the Flash for Cash will replace the former Dash for Cash. On race day, the final time trial (or only time trial) will have the option to pay $10 to be entered into the Flash for Cash. The paid driver with the best reaction time will be the winner of the Flash for Cash winning 1/2 of all the entries collected. The Flash competitors will be ran with the non-paid drivers (no separate run as previously) but only those drivers paid prior to the round will eligible to win. The winner of the Flash for Cash will have the wait and see bye-run for 1st round. Bye-runs after first round will he determine by best reaction time.

2019 Changes for Green Eliminator
The first wait and see bye-run will be determined by a random tech card being pulled from the tower before 1st round. Bye-runs after first round will be determined by best reaction time. Bye runs will carry over if they are not used. Only earned bye runs will carry over. Random tech card bye run will not carry over.

· If you stage your car with the wrong dial-in, the race will be considered valid and there will NOT be a re-run. (This includes accepting a dial-in that is incorrect on the dial-in board.)
· Excessive breaking at the finish line will result in a warning or disqualification depending on the severity of the action (i.e. tire smoke or loss of control). A track official will be responsible for this call.
· A driver may not drive more than one (1) car in the same eliminator. A driver may drive the same car in separate eliminators.

· There is no break rule if you win a round and cannot return for the next round you will receive points and/or money as if you would have appeared in the next round.
