Courtesy staging is recommended. Do not final stage your car until your opponent has pre-staged. In the event of a burn down situation, when the official starter has given each driver sufficient time to stage, he will then motion both cars in. At that time, you will have 10 seconds to stage. If neither car has staged at the end of the 10 seconds, both cars will be disqualified.
Your dial must be clear and legible on the front windshield, driver’s window and the rear window. The dial-in must be on your car prior to crossing the line at the front of the staging lanes. Check your dial-in box and do not stage your car until your dial-in is on the scoreboard. If your dial-in is wrong on the scoreboard, notify an official immediately. If you stage your car, you have accepted the run and the results are final.
If you red light and your competition is unable to cross the finish line, they are still the winner of the round.
If your car breaks in the staging lanes, you have five minutes or until the end of the round, whichever is greater.
The line at the front of the staging lanes is the commitment line to race. If you break after you cross the line, you then have twenty seconds to make the start before the other driver is told to stage. This applies to bracket classes only.

NOTICE TO MINORS
Motor Mile Dragway will not permit minors to participate in any way without a completed minor waiver. If BOTH parents are not with the minor at the track, the minor must have a completed and notarized minor waiver with them in order to participate. A completed waiver will be good for the entire 2021 season.
Letting minors participate in the sport is a privilege, and therefore, it can be taken away. We will be enforcing this rule, so if you are a minor and you do not have your minor waiver signed by both parents/guardian and notarized, you will NOT be allowed to participate. NO EXCEPTIONS! You can pick up a waiver at our office or call (540) 639-1700 to have one mailed to you.
