PRO STICK Racing â

 

 

WELCOME!

 

Real Race Cars Have A Clutch!  By popular demand, in 1996 a few long time stick shift bracket racers got together and held a race at the famed 75-80 dragway in Maryland.  The class became known as Pro Stick.  Over the years since, this Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia based group continues to attract new cars and grow in spectator popularity.  This site is intended to provide some general information to our racers and fans.  You will find current news, a list of our supporters, our rules, the schedule, race results, and series points.  For additional information other than what is provided below, or to purchase our Real Race Cars logo T-Shirts etc., please phone 240-271-0876.

Celebrating over twenty years of PRO / STICK!!

 

Recent News:

 

We had a decent weather day for our season finale at Capitol on November 11.  We had 29 cars come out.  Dan Hoyler took the win over Denny Henry while Codey Clites ended his day in the semi-final.  The Hoyler family had a special day as Dan won our class and daughter Daylin won the junior dragster class!  Congrats to both!

 

Top 10 ties:  To break the ties in the top 10 at the end of the year, we looked back to the next to the last race to see who had the most points among those tied drivers.  As a result, the top ten are listed in order first to tenth in that area of this website even though you will note some ties as far as numbers of points.

February 23 – Pro Stick banquet

 

April 20 – VMP moving race from October to April

 

May 18  - No points race at Edgewater Park near Cincinnati - $5,000 to win

Pittsburgh aftermath:

 

First of all, thanks to everyone who attended, there were nearly 80 cars signed in over the weekend.  As many of you know, the weekend was unfortunately surrounded by an unusual set of circumstances.

 

On Saturday:

Due to deteriorating track conditions, the race was cancelled during first round by the track management.  All Pro Stick cars who signed in will receive their show up points.  In addition, what we will do is what we have done in the past when a rainout occurred during first round.  That is all winners of the round will receive their 10 points.  Those who were in the lanes and did not yet run will receive 5 points.  Pertaining to refunds, there were a total of 61 cars for first round, 26 winners, 26 losers, and 9 left in the lanes.  All 61 cars could run on Sunday for no charge.  If you were among the 61 cars and were not able to stay to run on Sunday, you are entitled to a refund.     

 

On Sunday:

Due to multiple track down times, the race was cancelled before first round by Eric strictly for safety concerns.  All cars who signed in on Sunday are eligible for a refund, and the Pro Stick cars will receive their show up points. 

 

Most refunds were paid.  There are some loose ends to tie up yet.  If you qualify for a refund per above and did not get it, or have other questions, contact Eric at 240-271-0876.

 

Pittsburgh 2019:

 

We will be making a change in 2019.  For one, we will be starting earlier in the day with the program.  Also we will consider the following proposals.  First, move away from time runs and eliminations each day (not have two separate races) and instead have only one race over the weekend.  That one race will be a $2,000 to win event.  We could run with the ‘show’ cars on a schedule and have two time runs only on Saturday.  Then on Sunday come back with first round of eliminations.  We could consider other models such as two time runs on Saturday and first round also, then round two and beyond on Sunday.  However with that model the spectators on Sunday only get to see half of our cars, and with that being said, the track may wish to cut the amount they contribute to our purse.  Also making hotel reservations for Saturday night would be an uncertainty. 

 

Eric would like to hear input on the above from the racers, including UMTR.  Let him know your thoughts!  Contact him at 240-271-0876.             

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Completed Gear Jammer race on Saturday June 16:

Ten cars from our group went to North Carolina to represent Pro Stick.  In 2019 we will work with the Gear Jammer group to schedule this race so that maybe more of us can attend.  It was a great event at a great track.  Stay tuned for this race in 2019.

 

Please be mindful:

The first area to address is the use of social media such as Facebook or the like.  We do not need anyone from our group posting negative remarks of any type on social media regarding any track.  This is true for our group Facebook page as well as your personal page.  The bottom line is that negative remarks not only make the author look unprofessional, they are seen as a negative reflection on our entire group.  The second topic is the use of alcohol at the track.  If you choose to drink after the race, do so responsibly.  Again, please consider the reflection on yourself and on our entire group.

Drag racing is hazardous.  Injury to participants or spectators is possible in all areas of the racetrack.  Promoters, organizers, etc. assume no liability for injuries.  You are attending the event at your own risk.  Your attendance acknowledges your acceptance of all risks associated with racing, and releases all other parties from any liability.

 

Always keep your speeds down in the pit area to 5 MPH or less.  There are spectators, small children, golf carts, etc. moving around all the time, and they are not always paying attention.

3.  The class will run on a five tenths bracket style full tree with handicap dial in.

 

4.  Absolutely no type of delay devices are permitted.  A delay device is ANY mechanism, electronic or otherwise, that can be adjusted to create ANY delay between the driver reacting to the tree, and the car moving forward.

6.  No street legal tires are permitted on the rear axle.

 

7.  No dragsters allowed.

10.  Once in eliminations, you must drive the same car in all rounds.  This rule does not apply to a run-off of a rain-out of a previous event.  

 

11.  Courtesy staging is recommended.  Wait until both cars are pre-staged before either car stages.

 

12.  NHRA, IHRA, or other host track sanctioning body, and local rules apply.

 

13.  Absolutely no use of drugs or alcohol will be tolerated. 

 

14.  The use of nitrous oxide is NOT permitted by anyone.

 

15.  In appreciation of our sponsors, it is suggested that their decals be displayed on both sides of the car.

 

16.  During random elimination rounds, once you pull in to the staging lanes and have secured your spot, do not move your car in an effort to avoid running any particular opponent, or in an effort to run a particular opponent.

 

 

ADDITIONAL GENERAL INFORMATION

 

It is the responsibility of the driver to take their car to the pre-race tech. Inspection.  The host track officials will check driver credentials/safety equipment, and vehicle safety equipment as described in the NHRA/IHRA rulebook.  The track may disqualify any driver or vehicle for failure to meet these requirements.  All drivers must be a dues paying member of the sanctioning bodies of NHRA and IHRA.  The decision of host track officials regarding win/loss disputes, crossing of boundaries, or infractions of any rules (sanctioning body or local) is final.

 

Safety Suggestions For Your Own Good:

1.  If you are unfamiliar with a track, always look around before making any runs to get yourself familiar with the surroundings and operation of the track.  Pay special attention to the shut down area of the drag strip should any emergency type situation occur.

2.  Consider wearing a SFI neck collar no matter how fast your car is.

3.  Tighten down your seat AND shoulder belts before every run.  Loose belts will do you no good.  

 

Warren Frank is working a deal to get a group discount for anyone who is interested in purchasing a Hans device.  A sportsman model is available that you can easily put on yourself after you are in the car.  ARC also offers bolt on or weld on header collector retention devices as approved by NHRA.  Call Warren at 717-624-8181 for more information.   

 

Event Registration and Drivers Meeting:

The racer entry fee for most races will be $50 unless otherwise posted on this web site per event.  The entry fee is paid at the gate.  Anyone can run with the group as long as they meet the specific track rules, and our group rules.  Check the white board in Eric’s trailer for pertinent information pertaining to each event.  You can locate the trailer by looking for the Pro / Stick Racing flag at the yellow Chevelle H118.  Make sure Eric knows you are at the track for tracking of your points.  Let Eric know of breakage if you can not run.  There are no refunds for breakage if you pulled in to the staging lanes to attempt at least one time run.    

 

The drivers meeting is usually 10 minutes after first round of eliminations at Eric’s trailer, please plan accordingly.  First round of eliminations is always random pairings.  At the meeting, we will establish our race ladder sheet by drawing cards.  We use a bracket type ladder sheet as is used at local tracks. Lane choice may be discussed and determined by a coin flip.     

Bye Runs:  

 

Bye run for first round:  Of all cars appearing for first round of eliminations, the driver with the best reaction time during our time run session(s) will earn the potential bye run and $25 from SRS Fitness.  Both time run sessions count toward earning the potential first round bye, the best light regardless of which session earns it.  To determine a winner in the event of a tie – If there is a tie BETWEEN time run sessions, the first session driver gets the bye.  If there is a tie DURING the same session, we choose from those same drivers in the OTHER session. Check the board in Eric’s trailer for the car number, especially if YOU had a good light, sometimes the track makes mistakes on the run sheets! 

 

 

During random rounds, if at the end of the line the bye run car has a car to race, the bye run car gets lane choice.  

 

Round two and beyond: the bye run goes to the winning driver having the best reaction time in the previous round.  If there is a tie, we look back to the previous round (or time session if need be) for those same drivers to determine the bye.

 

When we establish a pairing sheet, bye run cars go to the top of the sheet for the next round.

 

The bye run car should always pull to the designated bye run spot at a specific track.  Depending on specific track rules, bye run cars may or may not have to go down the track, but under full power is at the drivers option.  One bye run per car per event maximum.

 

Break Runs:  After the ladder has been established at the meeting, if a car cannot make a run, the competitor gets a single run and this does not count as a bye run. Single runs are conducted as stated in the sanctioning rulebook.

 

Win/Loss:  If you lose, you are out even if your competition breaks after you lost.  An example of an exception to this would be as stated in the sanctioning rulebook under disqualifications regarding crossing of boundaries (track officials make these calls).  Also, you or your crew must check your dial on the scoreboards before pre-staging.  Be proactive and be responsible, there have been cases where the track makes mistakes.  No reruns due to incorrect dial-ins. 

 

Rain:  Some races have a posted rain date on the schedule.  If no elimination rounds start, it can be expected that we will run the event on the posted rain date.  In the event of rain after eliminations start, a decision will be made depending on the particular situation.  Some example situations would include:

1.  If a few rounds have been completed, we will usually split the purse among the remaining drivers.

2.  If we are down to the last round or two, the purse may be split, or we may run the cars off at another date as decided on by the remaining drivers vote.  If we have a tied vote, the cars are to be run off at a later date. 

3.  If an early round starts and it rains before the round is complete, a decision will be made depending on the exact situation.  Winners so far during the round will receive their points. 

4.  If a late round starts and it rains before the round is complete, a decision will be made depending on the exact situation.  Winners so far during the round will receive their points.  Drivers still in will vote to make a decision.  If we have a tied vote, the cars are to be run off at a later date. 

 

Other:

Make sure Eric has your current address and car number.  Don’t use your engine size or the year of your car for your number.  That is not a unique idea and duplicate numbers show up in the computer.  Keep in mind that the track employees change.  They may not know how our program works.  Staging officials may need reminded that we are on a ladder, etc.  From time to time, tracks at the start of our first time trial will by mistake give us a Pro tree.  If that happens, do not go down the track.  Instead just back out, cut the engine off, inform the starter accordingly that we run on a full five tenths tree.  

 

Clarification on car counts:

If there are over 64 cars, we will run two rounds of random before holding our meeting and going on a ladder.   

 

Points:

There is no charge to join the points tracking program.  The points program is just for fun and bragging rights.  It is a good idea to track your own points as a double check and let Eric know if issues.  Each driver receives 10 show-up points per event at a quarter mile track, or 20 show-up points per event at an eighth mile track.  You will get the points for showing up with the intent of running with the group even if you broke before eliminations.  Intent of running is indicated by bringing your car to the track, paying your entry fee at the gate, and filling out/turning in a tech card.  Each driver also receives 10 points for each round won including bye runs or singles if your competition broke.  The reaction winner of each event will receive 5 points. 

Special note for the last race of the year:

You get 20 show up points regardless if it is quarter mile or eighth mile track. 

 

Additional points are awarded at each event as follows:

Ø      an extra 11 points to the winner

Ø      an extra 7 points to the runner-up

Ø      an extra 4 points for a semi-final loss (effective in 2018  - 4 points instead of 3 points)

 

 

Tie breaker rule to determine the series champion (if necessary):

If at the end of the season there are multiple drivers tied in points for the championship, we will determine the champion from those tied drivers by naming the driver with the most event wins throughout the season.
