The qualifying points start at 37 for the # 1 qualifier,
36 for the # 2 qualifier, 35 for the # 3 qualifier,
34 for the # 4 qualifier, 33 for the # 5 qualifier, 
27 for the # 6 qualifier, and then 1 less for each qualifier thereafter.....


The round points are figured by

WCPGA RACE SEASON MEETING RESULTS



Bump Boxes are illegal in WCPGA. Bump Boxes are legal in NHRA Pro Mod for use by Turbo Cars to allow them to stage while spooling the turbos. One advantage of Bump Boxes is they allow precision staging exactly the same way pass after pass.

If you have an issue at a track, do not go to the tower or take your issue directly to track officials. You should always contact your Class Representative who will represent you. This is also a request from the track officials.

Some of our burnouts, pass the starting line, are of excessive length which are taking up too much time. It is requested that we reduce the length of these burnouts to a much shorter distance.

All on-track tuning of fuel, throttle, clutch, transmission, and ignition systems must be a direct function of the driver. Data recorders are allowed for data acquisition only and in no way may be able to make a control function that enhances the drivers or tuners ability to control the performance of the car while it is on the track. No microprocessor feedback controlled ignition systems allowed. Rev-limiters are allowed. Three-step controllers are allowed. Use of unapproved electronics will cause immediate disqualification.

Ladder Formation and Procedures:
All ladders will be set after the last qualifying pass. After the ladder is set, no changes will be made except alternate insertion for no-show cars of the first round. These insertions will be placed directly into the no-show cars qualifying spot in an ascending order, if more than one spot exists. If alternates are not available, the open slots will be considered break singles and not bye-runs. Full points are awarded to the original qualifying driver; alternate accumulates points after the first round. Prize money will be awarded to original winning driver; alternate can win money after reinsertion round. All ladders will be constructed on a professional format, with number one running number thirty two, number two running number thirty one, etc.
Lane Choice:
Lane choice is the responsibility of the lowest qualifying racer. This must be done before leaving the staging lanes. Lane choice does not have to be selected until the point of entry into the burnout box. The car without lane choice should refrain from blocking entry into either lane, regardless of earlier verbal agreement between the competitors. If both cars have set in the burnout box and a track oil-down or facility problem occurs causing a delay of the run, the car with lane choice may request a lane change.
