A Finals “Grand Finals” Heat will be run with the Top 12 cars from different builders using Composite Time – There will be 12 cars that advance to finals representing 12 different builders. It not possible for a builder to have multiple cars advance each builder will have to choose which qualifying car to advance.. The finals will consist of 6 more runs. Again the slowest time will be dropped and the average of the remaining 5 times will determine the results – Composite Time.

Notes on Rules:

These rules are written to include all cars built to the following national league rules:

  • NPWDRL – Street Rod

  • APR – Door Slammer Muscle Car, Door Slammer Sports Car, & MOG

     

    The rules were nearly the same to start with, but the longer phrases from each league’s rules were combined to form one united set of rules.  No league is expected to have an advantage or disadvantage, if you feel one is created please contact the Pro Division Race Director
