|"Thunder in the Valley" is run based on the rules put out by the NHRA in regards to safety and
general procedures, but PLEASE keep in mind that this is NOT a sanctioned track and that we have different standards regarding insurance etc
so there are some rules we apply that may be different. Among those includes
A driver may only race in 1(one) class ,
All drivers must be the sole occupant of the vehicle during a race
All drivers regardless of speed/class MUST wear a helmet.
Helmets must be SNELL 2005 or Newer.
2000 helmets are now
The most common are SNELL, and the 2005 dated
helmets are good until 1/1/2017 and 2010 dated
helmets are good until 1/1/2022.
These are just a couple of examples, feel free to contact us if you want more information. Remember, this is what we would like to
consider a "fun" weekend of racing, a bit of a break from the regular grind so please understand if things are not quite they are at your home track.
Now lets go burn some rubber!
