We have the new class info posted along with the changes for Shootout. ET Class will remain the same entry/payouts. The streetbike rule changes stated last fall will be implimented - no sliders, air clutches...........There are links to my email if you have any questions on any of the new classes. Sorry, the Harley info is not complete yet.

Dan, why no buy-backs in the .400 class as you had initially proposed
11-24-2004, 09:40 PM
At this point we were figuring that most of the faster bikes wouldn't want to put the extra passes on their bikes. If we get enough input from racers who will run the classand they want buy backs, then we can add them. I'm like you Dave, I want to race as much as possible. We're flexible.

corect me if i'm wrong but pretty much drag et is anything goes except delayboxes,and still meet safety requirements such as full leathers faster than 120 ect....
11-25-2004, 11:39 AM
You're extactlly right Ken. Anything goes in Drag Et except Delay Boxes are a no go. As a rider you must meet saftey requirments as far as anything over 120 mph requires full leathers and 9.99 and quicker you need an IHRA license.
Bob, if you have any questions while your out here, there are a ton of racers who are willing to help out.

Those links are perfect. If you already hold an NHRA license it is only a $10 cross-over fee to get an IHRA license. IHRA is $55 a year and NHRA is $50. You don't need a license if you are running 10:00 or slower.

You only need any IHRA license, for Byron....

"You only need any IHRA license, for Byron...."
This is true...but...
If you later decide to race at an NHRA track, say RT66, than you have to redo the whole license procedure for them.
If you get the NHRA license first, you can send a copy to IHRA and they
will issue a license without making all the observed runs.
What I don't know is how the AMA PROSTAR fits in...
I think they have there own license, correct

Prostar has their own competition license. Nothing to do with eihter of the others. However, to one of theirs all you need to do is bring two of your qualifying time slips to the control tower and they use those for your license runs. However, if you have never help a Prostar license, they may want you to attend one of the qualified drag racing schools before they will issue you one. Contact them directly for exact details. I know I've damn near got a full house of license in my hand!
