There may be 6.50 contested at other tracks which don’t follow our rule set and there may also be other events held at Emerald Coast outside of the points series that have their own variation of the 6.50 rules.
GENERAL GUIDELINES -All N/T classes will be randomly paired by a chip draw indicating number and lane assignment, for example 1R will race 1L and they will be the first pair down the track. -Semi-finalists get their entry fee back while winner and runner up split remaining purse 75/25%, 100% payback if entry fee’s exceed purse amount. -Unless otherwise specified drivers will get two time shots (qualifying for 6.50) prior to eliminations and run order will be as follows; Prep/28X/TS/FS/6.50/other/repeat. -Entering the race consists of passing tech inspection & pulling through the burnout box onto the racing surface, at this point there will be no refunds as show up points are assigned and your entry fee will go towards the purse. -Testing with your class after being eliminated from the race is acceptable, pull into the respective lanes after round pairing and feel free to run singles and/or grudge race. -Crossing center or making contact with any piece of the track safety or timing equipment is grounds for disqualification, this also includes any parts of the vehicle crossing the center line – “first or worst” -If there are potential grounds for disqualification that need to be brought to the racemasters attention it must be done prior to the start of the race or prior to the next round of eliminations if the infraction happened during the prior round of eliminations. -Racemaster has final discretion to make rule change without notice in an effort to maintain class parity.
