DRAG PIT POLICIES

DRAG PIT STALL POLICY

To ensure a smooth and welcoming experience, please take a moment to review and get acquainted with the following guidelines at RAD Torque Raceway:

  • Authorized Parking: Only competition vehicles, haulers, personal vehicles, and self-contained motorhomes are permitted in the Pit Stall area. All other vehicles, including guests and crew, should be parked in the main Spectator Parking Lot and enter through the Main Spectator Gate.

  • Event-Specific Pit Space: Pit Stall space is exclusively available during Bracket Drag Series event days. No other events or facility rentals allow pit stall occupation without explicit authorization from RAD Torque Raceway management.

  • Post-Event Vehicle Removal: All vehicles must be removed from the RAD Torque Raceway facility at the conclusion of each Bracket Drag event or weekend. Exceptions can be made if approved by RAD Torque Raceway management and parked in a designated area.

  • Owner Responsibility: Owners are solely responsible for their rented Pit Stall, including general upkeep, maintenance, and overseeing who uses the stall. This includes handling spills, disposing of garbage and oil, etc. Adequate receptacles are conveniently placed throughout the facility. Please note that RAD Torque Raceway must be informed at least one week in advance if someone else will use your stall.

  • Early Entry: On Fridays, early entry is available from 11 AM to 3 PM and after 7 PM. However, early entry does not guarantee access to the rented stall. Pit Stall Holders must wait until the scheduled event (e.g., Street Legal) concludes before parking in their rented stall.

  • Occupancy Guidelines: Due to limited Pit space and the aim to accommodate as many competitors as possible for the season, consistency in space occupancy is crucial. Additionally, the owner of the race car must also occupy the allotted space. Only one stall is allotted per competition vehicle, and juniors may share space with their guardian’s primary competition vehicle.

By adhering to these rules and guidelines, we can ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone at RAD Torque Raceway. Thank you for your cooperation.
