About the So Cal .5 Pro Lite Series

So Cal .5 Pro Lite Series got a bunch of great companies on board as series sponsors and partners, set up a Facebook page, wrote the rules and got ready to race at the series debut on April 5, 2018. “One feature that we really like about the So Cal .5 Pro Lite series is that the rules are designed to take bracket racing back to where it all started,” Steve Cox stated. “With door car drivers who have to rely on their reactions, skill and wits instead of on electronics and techno-wizardry.”Every car in the series must have operating doors. No dragsters, altereds, roadsters, or motorcycles are allowed. Trans brakes and 2-3 step rev-limiters are allowed, but no delay boxes, electronic throttle stops, crossover boxes or any other reaction time aids are allowed. We race 1/8 mile and use the .5 Pro Lite.
