Vehicles will start from a stop and trap speed will be clocked at the 1/2 mile point on the runway. Drivers will receive speeds at the end of each run.
Saturday & Sunday’s formats are identical. Vehicles choosing not to run in the trophy and prize competition can run openly throughout each day, running side-by-side with another vehicle or solo for trap speed. Those registered for the trophy competition will run in a shootout style competition. Trophies will be awarded at the end of each day for each competition class. Vehicles registered for the trophy competition are also free to run openly, but must make passes during the formatted competition times to qualify for each stage.

All drivers registered in the trophy competition will be competing in a race shootout on the respective registered day(s).
This event is open to the public, however, participants must register their spot during Competitor Registration, and spectators must purchase tickets online. The event is open to all types of cars and all horsepower levels. Each registered driver may bring 2 guests/crew free of charge. All others must purchase spectator tickets here on our website. (Spectators will have the same general access as drivers and guests/crew). We are only selling a limited number of spectator tickets per day in order to meet our capacity requirements. If you are not a registered driver, a guest/crew of a registered driver, or have secured a spectator ticket, YOU WILL NOT BE LET IN THE GATE.

Cars must meet individual tech inspection to insure their safety for the competition. There are also qualifying requirements.
It is required that all cars aiming to trap over 180+ go through our own independent tech inspection in addition to filling out your self tech form. This will occur on grid either before your first run or before your second run.
To be licensed to go 180+mph, each driver must do two solo passes (one in each lane) between 170mph and 180 mph. This is to ensure that you can do a safe pass at that speed as observed by our staff. Once we see you have accomplished two safe passes, we will issue you a wristband licensing you to go over 180+mph.
Qualifying for a license on Saturday will be good for both days of the event.
Licenses issued in our records to drivers at any previous Shift-S3ctor events will carry over. You do not need to go through licensing again if you already did at the last event, your car will still need to pass tech inspection. At our discretion, we may issue provisional licenses for certain individuals we have seen at past events accomplish these requirements already.
If you exceed 180MPH with a car that has not been through our tech inspection and/or you are not licensed to go over 180MPH, you will be restricted to sub 180MPH. If you continue to go beyond that, you will be removed from the event without refund.
The event will proceed rain or shine and will run based on the safety of conditions.
There will be NO REFUNDS issued.
Mechanical malfunctions or catastrophic failure will not allow for refunds either.
