Fees, Format, & Prizes

Track Fee + One Class: $15 

Each Additional Class: $5

Prizes: Plaques and towels will be awarded weekly. The top 3 drivers in each class will be given a trophy after the Point Series is completed.



The Tree will be setup as a Full or Pro Tree with lane widths 10-12 feet. 

Organizers will use a deck of cards to arrange drivers into a bracket.

  • If there are fewer than 14 vehicles, drivers who draw the same card will race against each other.

  • If there are 14 or more vehicles, drivers who draw one of the four face cards (Jack, Queen, King) will race against others with the same face card, divided by color. For example, if four Jacks are drawn, the two red Jacks will race each other, and the two black Jacks will race each other.
