Object and Rules of the Race

  • This is not a race! The purpose of the race is the destruction of other competitors' trailers. The last running vehicle with a trailer adequately attached to the tow vehicle and has an axle in place on the trailer will be the winner. You will be black-flagged for hitting a tow vehicle.
  • Any participant who hits a tow vehicle on the Driver's side will be red-flagged and removed from the race.
  • Race officials may black flag you for not hitting anyone's trailer. Again this is not a race; it is a Night of Destruction! If the trailer comes off the ball, officials can flag you if they feel it is unsafe. If you lose the axle on your trailer, you are out!
  • We will run heat races. There will be at least two feature races. There will be an intermission between feature races for repairs. Top 4 in the consolation feature move to the main feature. The number of cars will determine the main feature qualifiers entered that night.
  • We may run an 18-year-old and under heat, if there is enough entered.
  • All vehicles must pass inspection. Officials have the final say on all rules.
  • If a red flag comes out, stop immediately. You are out if an official with a black flag points at you. Remember, we are here for a show for the public, not how fast you can drive.

Modified

  • We will run a modified race based on the number of participants in this class. The number of participants in this class will also determine the purse.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with Hall County Fair officials.
