and federal traffic laws, including passing, merging and speed limits.
Burnouts or other illegal acts before or during the road tour are
prohibited. Violators will be subject to disqualification.

three passes. Hatchback owners may reach through the passenger
compartment to access the hatch area only to open nitrous bottles.

2. Tire pressure may be checked, but air can only be removed. No
inflation of tires is permitted during the race; therefore, no inflation
equipment will be permitted in the car.

3. If you experience any problems (mechanical or otherwise,) and
cannot make a pass, do not make it. If you oil down or crash on the
track surface, you jeopardize yourself and others. Promptly inform a

6. All cars and racers must make three runs. Participants must make
their first, second, and third pass together as a group.

7. After the three passes are made, e.t.'s will be added up, and
then divided by three, establishing an average used to place the
drivers.

8. All results and decisions from the Super Chevy staff are final.
Averages will be posted the day of the race at the Super Chevy event
booth/trailer.

9. All cars must pass track and/or NHRA/IHRA technical inspection,
and must be legal for the elapsed time, and speed they run. Drivers must
have proper licensing; i.e., if you have a 9-second car, you must have a
