Inspection & Registration

Inspection & Registration

  1. Each car must pass an inspection before it may compete. Typically, the inspection is held the Thursday night before the race. Please see the Pack calendar on this website for the date, time and location.

  2. Note: The Race Starter will place the car on the track according to axle location. The back axle is nearest to the end of the car. The front axle is furthest away from the end of the car. This determines the direction the car will race unless the contestant clearly marks "Front" on the car.

  3. The Inspection Committee shall disqualify cars which do not meet these rules. If a car does not pass inspection, the owner will be informed of the reason his car did not pass (too long, too heavy, altered wheel base, or the like). Cars which fail the initial inspection may be modified for final inspection and registration.

  4. To enter the race, cars must have passed inspection and be registered.

  5. No cars may be altered in any way after it has been registered. Damage repair shall be allowed during the Derby only if it does not delay the race, but no modifications shall be allowed. After the cars are inspected and registered, they will be held in secure place.

  6. After passing inspection, no car shall be re-inspected unless repaired after damage in handling or in a race.

  7. Ungentlemanly or unsportsmanlike conduct by any participant or spectator will be grounds for expulsion from the competition and/or the race area.
