    Hey Gene,
    This is the all Ford event right?

    I'm going to try to make it down there, but the forcast looks a little bit like rain.
    Who's a good person to contact about rain out?
    If it's raining in the morning, will they still try to run it in the afternoon?

    Thanks,
    Jerry

    The track's phone number is the best one to try...still good chance you'll get the machine though. You got a cell number? Shoot it to me in a message if you want.

    The classes that the track is running are for Ford Powered only...our OpenComp class is open to all brands. The O/C rules are a bit different than regular bracket race rules though:


    Midwest Open Comp Series

    Open Comp class is designed for any year, make, and model car & truck. Dragsters and roadsters prohibited. Door vehicles only.
    The Open Comp class will run on an Open Comp format with a 1-tenth (1/10th) breakout. (Your race index is set at 1/10 below your best qualifying pass.)

    Qualifying Information, Ladder Type, & Tree
    All Run, NHRA Sportsman Ladder, Pro .500 Tree, Handicap Start.

    The class will be qualified by positive reaction time (r/t) closest to “.000” based on a Pro .500 Tree. “.000” is considered perfect. Any negative r/t (-.001, -1.231, etc.) will be placed at the bottom of the qualifying ladder, the more negative the r/t is, the farther down the ladder the run will be placed. For cases in which identical reaction times are made, qualifying position will be based on a first-come first served: the first occuring r/t will be placed #1, the second occurance of said r/t will be placed #2, and so on. Class will be paired according to qualifying positions, and then advance to eliminations.

    The Open Comp class with over 32 cars will be contested on a random (all run) basis until the field reaches 32 or less competitors. At the point in which 32 or less competitors is reached the field will be laddered accordingly.

    A 32 or less car field is laddered on a sportsman ladder using the final qualifying sheet to determine ladder positions.


    RULES & REGULATIONS

    Any modifications, vehicle weight, or power adders permitted. Any gear change must occur as a result of an internal function of the transmission or from direct action by the driver. Pneumatic, electric, hydraulic, etc. shifters prohibited. Trans-brakes and 2-steps permitted.

    RACING AIDS
    Delay boxes, cross-over boxes, or any "reaction-time related" electronic bracket racing aids prohibited in this class. Throttle stops and all related throttle-stop type accessories prohibited.

    ET LIMITS
    The quickest qualifying ET permitted in this class is 8.700. Any qualifying pass quicker than 8.799 will be disqualified and will not be counted. The slowest qualifying time permitted will be a 15.800 flat. Competitor will be permitted to re-qualify if additional qualifying rounds are left. Competition will be regulated under standard IHRA/NHRA "First or Worst" competition policy during qualifying and eliminations.

    CREDENTIALS
    CREDENTIALS: See IHRA/NHRA general regulations.

    DEEP STAGING
    Deep staging is permitted, however not advocated. If you plan to Deep Stage it is strongly recommended that you boldly display the words DEEP on all four windows, in plain view of the starter. It is always the driver’s responsibility to stage the vehicle prior to the tree being activated. In any event, the driver must be prepared to leave as soon as the final stage light is lit.

    A competitor with the words DEEP displayed on the window is not necessarily obligated to deep stage. As well, the starter is not necessarily obligated to wait on a driver to deep stage, even if the words DEEP are displayed on the vehicle. All drivers must be prepared to leave as soon as the final stage light is lit.

    CLASS & SAFETY REQUIREMENTS
    It is the participant’s responsibility to familiarize oneself with the safety requirements as found in the current IHRA/NHRA rulebooks.
    The participant agrees that the participant bears the ultimate responsibility at all times to ensure the safety of participant’s vehicle and to ensure that participant complies with all applicable IHRA/NHRA rules. The participant agrees that participant is in the best position to know about the construction and operation of participant’s vehicle, equipment, and clothing, and whether there has been compliance with all applicable IHRA/NHRA rules.

    LANE CHOICE
    During qualifying and eliminations, it is the responsibility of the competitors to determine lane choice. If the competitors are unable to establish lane choice, a staging official will make the determination in the manner he/she chooses (i.e., coin flip, random choice, faster car, etc.). We have used the "Best Reaction Time" from the previous round as a way to set lane choice as well.

    They have changed it from an All-Ford Day to all brands(the Ford races will be run as scheduled)...with the weather conditions being abit 'iffy' the track has opened up the day to everyone.

    The O/C race was an all-brands from the get-go but if ya have some brand x and y buddies bring them along for some T&T, a Trophy, or a bracket race if they're so inclined.

    IF IT RAINS OUT we will use the 24th as a rain-date for the O/C final race. The 24th is a scheduled T&T day.

    The last MWOC race will be held on the 24th of October at Cedar Falls Raceway, today's race was rained out.
    The 24th will probably work better anyway as it's scheduled as a T&T day and there are no big money brackets that day....should be plenty of time to run'em!!!
