QUICK 8 (small tire)
This is an entry level heads up class for local competitors. Entry is $80
PAYOUT (based on 8 cars)
Winner – $1200
Semis – $200
1/4 – $100
We are keeping the rules pretty basic to avoid excluding anyone on a technicality. The tire size is the equalizer, but we reserve the right to reject any entry that doesn’t meet the “spirit” of the rules.
Have a question or concern…CALL ME!! Don’t call me out on the Internet.
WE HAVE MADE A FEW SMALL CHANGES TO THE QUICK 8 RULES IN ORDER TO ALLOW A MORE VARIED ASSORTMENT OF CARS .
One of the challenges we face with Windsor Weekend heads up classes is that very few cars fit any set of rules. No rules seems to scare guys off, too many rules leaves some guys out. Too many classes are hard to manage and there arent enough cars to fill 4 fields. Indexing them based on performance is a problem because the slowest guys in the A division, just sandbag down to the B division. Drag racing is evolving, and our local guys all have different interests, grudge cars, no prep, class cars, fast bracket cars, and some career test pilots who just like building em to see how fast they can go. I have spent some time,listened to a lo of opinions and think i can make this work.
We want to make this fun again. so i have tweaked the rules a bit on the 28 inch tire class to make it so some of our “slower “entries may get interested again. So read em , and try to understand the logic.. truth of the matter is that we have cars around that kill this class if they want to. i hope that everyone can accept the spirit of the rules and come out and have some fun. As well we would hope that all the naysayers who have accused me of not doing enough for them, will come back out as well.
Chassis is wide open, stock dimensions,no aero cars, steel roof and quarters, must have headlights etc, to create stock look. no altered wheelbases. no lettering except for window glass, witty names, and reasonable sized contingency decals allowed.
8 car field, pro tree, pro ladder essex county cars only..
28 x10.5 inch non w. 275/60 radial, 29 inch bias D.O.T. tire such as Quicktime Pro
what most guys consider these days to be a typical 28 inch “grudge” car combination. if you run on this little tire have at it , any power adder….,
28 x 10.5w any other 28 inch tall tire
..little bigger tire, so we will restrict the power a bit no big turbos,( say 80mm) no twin turbos, max.f1c procharger, no foggers. ( small fogger on a factory fuel injected setup will be considered) cast intake etc…
Any size tire.
Naturally aspirated to a max cube of 565.. again this will be tightly monitored to keep a “Killer” out…cast intake, no exotic stuff, a place for a guy with a bracket car to join in and have some fun.
If you choose to run this class its the only class you can run on Saturday. we havent determined format yet, but racing another class on Sunday should not be a problem.
Based on known, raced and parked combinations this is cars as fast as about 8.50 8.60 in the quarter… so 5.60 in the 1/8th, so we will run against a 5.50 bump. Anything in the 9 sec range or faster should be somewhat competitive.
As well there are some solid 10 second low 11 …cars out there that fit the rules and are feeling left out. IF WE GET a minimum 12 cars registered for the class we will add a B division. So there is some incentive to participate. this is a chance to meanifully participate and help re grow the program.
…Now.. i know there are some 29.5 fans out there but so far the most interest i’ve had is from the 28 inch crowd, and i know there are some guys out there who will always find a reason to be unhappy with what we do. we do not at this time have a plan to spread to another class until car counts come up
