What to expect at the track
When you enter the track, you'll receive a tech card after paying your entry/participation fee.
After completing your tech card, you'll drive your vehicle to tech, where a simple safety inspection will be performed on your car.
You'll then check in at racer registration, where you'll sign a release form and show your valid driver's license.
4. Staging lanes
Once you're registered, drive to the rear of the staging lanes and get ready to race.
When it's time for you to race, an official will motion to you. Do a burnout if you'd like, or drive around the water box and get ready to stage. When both cars are ready, you'll stage using the Christmas Tree. (link to staging section from media guide) At the end of your run, slow down and exit.
6. Timing booth
After your run, you'll pick up your time slip at the timing booth to see how your vehicle performed. Then return to the pits to get ready for more runs.
