Box class racers will compete for a top prize of $15,000 on Friday and Saturday for a weekend entry of only $350. Single day entries are $200 each while buybacks are $125 each day; first round only. The Box purse is based on a 100 car minimum.

There will be $7,500 up for grabs each day for the No-Box competitors. Weekend entry for the No-Box class is just $250 while single day entries are $150 each day. The No-Box purse is based on an 80 car minimum. Delay boxes must be removed to compete in No-Box although two-steps and transbrakes are allowed.

The 1/8 mile bracket race allows double entries in any form and dragsters and doorcars will run separately in the first four rounds. Friday 1st round bye run is determined by the best reaction time in the last time trial. Saturday 1st round bye is the previous day winner. All byes carry over and all other byes will be determined based on the previous rounds reaction times.

Racers who fell to make the third round can purchase last chance lotto tickets for $10 a piece for a chance to re-enter the third round of competition. One ticket will be drawn for each class.
