Cool Down/Return Procedures

After vehicle has completed the cruise portion, they will return to the designated staging lanes for the cool down period. The cool down period will typically last 30 minutes. During this cool down period participants may lower tire pressures, install nitrous bottles, add ice to intercoolers not located in engine compartment. A strict closed hood policy is in effect until vehicle has completed the required three back to back passes. No refueling once vehicle leaves on cruise. Engines must remain off during cool down. External cooling by any means is prohibited. Any engine adjustments or repairs are prohibited. No laptops in vehicle during the cool down period.

Racers must report to their vehicles in the staging lanes when called and prepare to make the three back to back passes.

Additional nitrous bottles or ice for intercooler may not be added between runs, even if located in the interior of vehicle. Tire pressures may be lowered in staging lanes and between rounds. Air may not be added to tires at anytime during the back to back passes. Vehicles are required to make all three passes to complete event. Any vehicle not able to make all three passes will be disqualified. After the racer has completed a pass they must return immediately to the staging lanes for the next pass. Any vehicles trying to gain additional time for cool down between passes by not returning to staging lanes immediately will be disqualified. The only exception to this rule is vehicles that must use a parachute if required by trap speed. The driver is the only person allowed to push vehicle in staging lanes between runs. No laptops allowed in the vehicle during race portion of event or in staging lanes.
