2020 RULES

  1. Qualifying vehicles must be domestic four-wheeled street capable vehicles, domestic vehicles only. No purpose built race cars will be allowed to compete, but are welcome to run and have fun. This event is designed to be a fun and spirited competition to showcase vehicles conceived and built within the “pro-touring” concept. Vehicles must be set-up to be street driven daily in all  kinds of weather and any convertibles must have rollover protection & seat belts.
  2. Cost to compete in the event is $360 for one car and driver before April 1st. The event will be limited to the first 60 registrations, after which a waiting list will be established. * This is a non-refundable donation to the charity. Sorry but we can no longer allow changes, if you can not make the event we will do our best to sell your spot to the next person inline on the waiting list.
  3. Each vehicle is limited to one driver per entry.  However you can register the same vehicle more than once for another driver.
  4. The registered owner must drive the vehicle during all events.
  5. All drivers and passengers must sign a liability waiver. Passengers must be at least 18 years of age, identified and registered before the competition begins and only one passenger may be in the vehicle during any event (Passengers are not allowed at all times of the event)
  6. A mandatory driver / passenger meeting will be held prior to the first competition.

  8. All competitors must have current registration, proof of insurance, and a current driver’s license. All of the following are required: current registration, safety belts, working headlights, taillights, brake lights, turn signals, all convertibles must have a roll bar and all cars must have safety-glass windshield.
  9. Each entrant will be issued a number that must be clearly visible on the windshield, side windows or rear window. Decal package must be applied per specifications.
  10. Participants must use DOT approved, non-competition, treaded (non-grooved) street tires (no competition radials, no R compound, drag Pokies radials or shaved tread) with a manufacturers tread wear rating of 200 or greater.
    We have always tried to be reasonable with tires and clung tightly to the 200 TW rating, while trying not to rock anybody’s boat.  BFGoodrich Rival and Rival S tires are acceptable. Tires will be required to pass a technical inspection at the track. The event requires the use of a DOT approved “non-competition” tire – any modifications to tires will be unacceptable. The race director and technical inspector reserves the right to exclude any tire that does not appear to be a legitimate street tire regardless of tread wear rating. Any vehicle with tires showing any evidence of modification will be immediately disqualified from the event. Segments of the Midwest Musclecar Challenge will incorporate competitive elements that will make race tires unsafe and uncompetitive. Safety is of the utmost importance and the race director will not hesitate to disqualify questionable tire selections.
  11. Competitors must use a single set of tires for the entire event, no tire changing between events will be allowed. Tires will be marked during tech. Tire changes will be allowed in the event of a catastrophic failure, but replacements must be of the same size, manufacturer and model as those approved during tech inspection.
  12. Helmet use is to be required during any competitive event with the exception of street driving. No motorcycle helmets will be allowed and helmets must be certified in SA2005 or newer.
  13. Participating cars must pass a safety and technical inspection that will emphasize safety. Safety features that do not offer a competitive advantage such as racing specific harnesses roll cages/bars, fire systems, etc, are acceptable.
  14. Scoring guidelines will be based on a simple per element system, we do include social media post and special decal placement as points, if you do not like this being part of the event, please do not come.  This event is for enjoyment and for the charity so if your focused on only winning because you feel you’re the fastest and best driver, you might want to consider another event.
  15. Race director and event management staff will have COMPLETE discretion to deny or remove from competition anyone in the event for any reason.
  16. Rules interpretation will be at the sole discretion of the Midwest Musclecar Challenge committee, race director and event organizers.
