7.00 Index

7.00 Index is returning in 2018 for another one of the largest and most thought out sportsman programs in heads up racing today. Our sportsman program in 2017 was a huge hit with the racers with two complete races in one weekend, kicking off the weekend with our Thursday Throwdown. This program is a guaranteed purse with a selected car count but if the car count goes over the selected amount, the purse will grow as the car count increases. In 2017, 7.00 Index packed 51 cars into the Thursday Throwdown shootout with in turn paid the remaining eight competitors and a cool $4,000 to the winner. As the main event rolled around, we took the top 64 entries in qualifying and slammed them into a qualified ladder that was one of the highest car counts in the history of the event. The sportsman contingent have been huge supporters of our program since the beginning and we are always looking to make this program bigger and better for all involved. Listed below is the purse and class rules for the fifth running of the Outlaw Street Car Reunion.

CLASS RULES & REGULATIONS
2018 Rules Set, Last Modified on November 27, 2017

DESIGNATION:
The class designation is 7.00. All entrants must display this designation on all four corners of their car along with car number.

FORMAT:
This is an 1/8th mile index class run on a .500 Pro Tree. Courtesy staging and auto-start is in effect. Cars will qualify for run positions based on elapsed time, closest to 7.00, without breakout. Entries that run quicker than 7.00 will be placed at the bottom of the qualifying sheet unless a future run is slower than 7.00 and they will fall into the normal system. Professional ladder will be used, lane choice is determined by the higher qualified car in first round of eliminations. After the first round, lane choice is determined by previous round’s elapsed time with reaction time as the tie-breaker, if needed.

STAGING:
Courtesy staging is enforced. AutoStart is in effect with a time out of 7 seconds, complying to NHRA rules. Any time either pre-stage bulb is lit, that particular race is in motion. If you back out of the pre-stage beam, you will be disqualified. The official starter is the only person who can stop the staging procedure and motion you to back out of any pre-stage or stage beam without disqualification. This rule stands in qualifying and eliminations. Deep staging is strictly prohibited, foul start will occur for any deep staging fashion in qualifying and/or eliminations.

DUAL ENTRY:
A single car may enter once in any class it is legal for. A driver may enter each class once. Two drivers for one car or one driver for two cars is prohibited, as time constraints become an issue. You must run the same car during eliminations that you start eliminations with. If your car breaks during eliminations, you cannot substitute it with another car. Only exception to this rule would be if a car breaks in qualifying, you may substitute another legal entry, all your previous runs will be disqualified and you will have to make atleast one round of qualifying in the new car to qualify. Any racer wanting to run in two different classes at the same event may do so if they adhere to the rules in each class at the time of running for that given class. Example: Racing in 6.00 and 7.00 Index.

All NHRA and Local Track Safety rules apply for the car and driver, including the use of an oil retention device and/or engine diaper is requested for safety.
