Heat Race Format Change for 2015

Posted: February 17, 2015 by strebfest in Race Format & Rules

Streby Speedway is making a change to its Heat Race Format for 2015:

We are doing away with the fast, and medium qualifiers heats. Those drivers will now race in two mixed heats. We will still be running a slow qualifiers heat only when we have (16) or more racers.

After qualifying, the driver who sets quick time will roll a dice to determine which heat race format we will use for that day.

**With 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, and 15 racers, A dice roll of (1 thru 5) we will run all heats mixed and fully inverted. A dice roll of (6) we will run all mixed heats, everyone will run (1) heat fully inverted, and (1) heat straight up.

**With 16 or more racers, A dice roll of (1 thru 5) we will run (1) slow qualifiers heat fully inverted, and the rest of the heats will be fully inverted mixed heats. A dice roll of (6) we will run all mixed heats (no slow heat), everyone will run (1) heat fully inverted, and (1) heat straight up.

**The only time we will not do a dice roll after qualifying is when we have either (13) or (14) racers. The heats will automatically be, all mixed heats and fully inverted.

So far only #75 Sylvia Mastej, #20 Jessica Dubeau, and #78 Joe Constance are on our waiting list to be invited since both karts have run in the past, but did not make a race in 2014. (As of 1/16/15 we have added Craig Thornton to the waiting list as well.)

All Mean 18 members must make at least 25% of point races run in 2015 to maintain active status for 2016, failure to make at least 25% of the races ran may result in the loss of their Mean 18 member status for 2016.

Donations

  • We would appreciate all Mean 18 members to make a suggested minimum donation of $50 to track owner Jim Streby to help pay expenses and keep the track open. This is less than $5 per race! You pay $40 for less than 20 laps in a race day at most other places.
  • Anybody who would like to sponsor or donate trophies or stickers for individual races and/or season point championship please contact Matt Streby.
  • We will be having 2 50/50 drawings (on July 4th and Sept 26th) and are looking for other prizes to be donated to be raffled off in addition to the 50/50 prize. (Some examples include T-Shirts, Gift Certificates, Parts, Tools, etc.) We will put a list on our website and include a link back to whatever the donor wants.
  • Our July 4th Firework Extravaganza is being sponsored by RelevantRankings.com, but we would appreciate if others would contribute by either donating fireworks or cash to help the show. (A lot of time, money, and effort goes into putting on this awesome free show!)

Format

  • Main event laps will vary and include some of 25 laps, 30, laps, 35 laps, and 40 laps.
  • Heat race lineups might be different based on a dice roll for inversions and for some races we may do away with the fast, medium, and slow heats in favor of all mixed heats.
  • We are going to try and run the show faster this year especially during the heat races. This means it is your responsibility to have your kart in race-ready condition at all times including when you first arrive to the track. If you know you need some help prior to the start of the race day then you should pre-arrange a time to come early and get the work done before our scheduled pit meeting.

Tech / Rules Enforcement

  • Remember we have a BOX STOCK engine rule – this means you are not allowed to alter your motor including the carburetor in any way!
  • We will be doing random techs throughout the season on everyone, but if we suspect you have altered something then you WILL be teched.
  • Any driver who finishes in the top 3 in A-Mains 3 times may be subject to having motor torn down to be inspected. If we do tear down this must be done before the next race.
  • If you are illegal you must either make it legal before you can race again or you may be allowed to run with a restrictor plate.

Staff Help

  • We are looking for some help on race days with the following positions: flagman, back-straight flagman/cone-man, scorers, videographer, and photographer. In the past everyone has filled in where they could, but if anyone knows someone who wants to do any of these duties full-time we would gladly accept their help.

  • No person under the age of 18 will be allowed to race or be in the pit area during races. (Unless OK’d by track owner)

If you continually miss races without letting us know in advance – you may lose your status in the Mean 18.
  • Each kart owner may also have one other driver run their kart. If so one driver will be declared the primary driver and one will be declared as the secondary driver. The secondary drivers can’t advance any further than a B-Main and this might also affect which main event each driver races in since they cannot both be in the same main or heat race.

Tech / Rules Enforcement

  • We reserve the right to do random techs at anytime, for anyone, and for any reason.
  • Any driver who finishes in the top 3 in A-Mains 3 times may be subject to having motor torn down to be inspected. If we do tear down this must be done before the next race.
  • If you are illegal you will forfeit all points for that race day. You also must either make it legal before you can race again or you may be allowed to run with a restrictor plate.
  • Everyone will have to weigh 350 lbs w/ kart and driver before racing. (Except for rookie secondary drivers, If your secondary driver has ever paid to enter a race in any form of 4 wheel vehicle-go kart, mini sprint, midget, cage kart, sprint car, modified, late model, stock car etc. they will need to make the 350 pound weight requirement) Once you make weight you will draw your qualifying pill. Top 3 in A-Main will also weigh in after main with a 5 pound variance allowed.
  • We will sometimes allow a grace period for new racers to get their kart legal.
