KOTS GENERAL GUIDELINES

KOTS IS AN UNPREPPED EVENT–THE TRACK WILL BE UNTOUCHED THROUGHOUT THE EVENT (UNLESS A WRECK/OILDOWN OCCURS)

  • All races will be “1st round off the trailer”–NO test passes on race day.
  • No track prep or burnouts beyond starting line (cars may not pass starting line during/after burnout for any reason) Any attempts to prep the track beyond the starting line may result in a DQ of the racer whose crew makes the attempt. TO FURTHER CLARIFY: TRACTION COMPOUND (VHT/Pimp Juice/LC7/etc) ONLY–NO WATER!!
    Burnouts must start in the designated area (painted box, just beyond the burnout box), and may be driven out so long as the car does not cross the starting line in any way. “Puddling” of traction compound may be done in the designated area only. Spraying of traction compound may be done from the burnout box to the line.
  • CALLOUTS!! (1st round only) Racers will have the option to choose their 1st round opponents. You can call out any racer in the event, and if they accept then that’s it! In short, two racers must agree to race each other (KOTS rules, heads up only), and may not be from the same team/crew. KOTS staff must approve the matches to ensure no “fixed” races. If racers do not wish to choose an opponent (or accept a challenge), they will defer to the standard draw. (NOTE: CALLOUT RACES WILL BE DRAWN DURING 1ST ROUND DRAW TO DETERMINE WHEN THEY WILL RUN)
  • After any 1st round matches are declared, races will be drawn at random from “SKIN’S MAGIC BUCKET”
  • STARTING METHOD: All races will use an AUTO START instant green (NO ambers), with the track win lights determining the victor. (IN THE UNLIKELY EVENT OF AN ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT MALFUNCTION, THE RACE(S) AFFECTED WILL BE RE-RUN AUTOMATICALLY, NO EXCEPTIONS)
  • We will be using a “2-bulb” green with a ****5 second auto timeout****. Once both racers are pre-staged, the first racer to fully stage starts the clock. The last racer to fully stage has 5 seconds to do so before an automatic red light. Green light will be at random and fully automatic!!
  • Once both vehicles are pre-staged, backing out will result in a DQ. (same procedure as typical pro tree, but 5 second timeout)
  • Once vehicles are fully staged, any premature starts/jumping will result in an automatic red light & DQ.
  • Deep staging OK
  • “Courtesy” staging is *NOT* required (but once your opponent has staged, dawdling will get you red lit after 5 seconds)
  • BYE RUNS: Last racer drawn in the round, will automatically advance (no pass allowed) to race against the first racer drawn in the following round.
  • CENTER LINE: Crossing the center line in front of your opponent (before the win light indicates a winner) will result in a DQ. (crossing behind does not DQ, but use your head please!!)
  • DOUBLE RED LIGHTS: In the event of a double red light, the generally accepted “first/worst” rule will apply. (Trent will prove first/worst to the racers ONLY upon request)
  • RED LIGHT & CENTER LINE: In the unlikely event that one racer red lights, and the other crosses the center line in front of said red lit opponent, “first/worst” will again apply (example: Most likely, the red light happened first, so they would be out)
  • GLD will have their concessions stand & bar open and available for everyone (NO ALCOHOL FOR DRIVERS, SUBJECT TO DQ). Any patrons who appear to be overserved or belligerent will be denied alcohol sales, and may be ejected into police custody if they are a problem
  • BEHAVE!
  • Participant’s entry list will NOT be revealed until the day of the event.
  • ANY UNAUTHORIZED PEOPLE NEAR THE FINISH LINE WILL BE EJECTED IMMEDIATELY WITHOUT A REFUND
  • KOTS staff will hold ultimate authority in making any ruling, and all rulings are final.
  • A racer may be DQ’d for any reason not listed here at the discretion of KOTS staff. (aka: NO bullshit, please)
  • DQ will result in forfeit of any & all entry fees for racer and crew.
  • There will at least 15 minutes between rounds, save for any unexpected delays (wrecks/oildowns). (Time frame will be adjusted if necessary to ensure completion of event.

Our first Cruise was a learning experience, so we’ve gone to great lengths to lay it all out very clearly for the Racers. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask us!!
