Default 2018-2019 Dog Days Race Series


Welcome to the 4th season of the Dog Days Race Series.
This race series has always been by racers, for racers with the emphasis on having fun.

$30 first class, $25 each additional - $10 Sportsman - $10 off 2wd Short Course Truck and 2wd Stadium Truck

2018 Dog Days Schedule:
Sun Oct 28th - Race #1 @ DRP Raceway(Old Forge, Pa)
Sat Dec 1st - Race #2 @ Trains & Lanes Indoor (Easton, Pa)

Sat Jul 27th - Race #9 @ Trains & Lanes Outdoor (Easton, Pa)
Sat Aug 10th - Pizza Race (Location TBD)

Awards:
Race Awards will be given out for the top 5 A-main finishers in each class at each race.
There will also be a mini-series award give out (to be determined) at the end of each mini-series. No drops in mini-series.
The overall series award will be given to the top 5 finishers in each class.
There will be two drops in the overall series.

Top Dog Awards will be given out to the top 3 racers with the most combined podium finishes in the series.
We will maintain a list throughout the series similar to how Olympic medal counts is done.

Furthest Traveled will be given out at each race to the racer who has driven the furthest from home.

BullDog Awards will be given at the end of the season to racers that make it to all 9 races in the series.

This season we will be adding a special incentive for our Dog Days hosting tracks to encourage their local racers to follow the series with a bonus Pizza Race!
How this works is when you register there will be a checkbox list across the top of your registration form. You check off one, and only one, track signifying which is your home/favorite track.
At the end of the season we'll tally up all the entries and whichever track has the most racers following the series will receive the special Pizza Race.

Race Program:
IFMAR style qualifying
2 rounds of 6 min qualifiers
Single Mains
7 min Lower Mains
* 10 min A-mains for All Classes

* A-mains may be cut back to 7 minutes if we're running behind. This is the race directors call.
If you want to keep your 10 minute A-mains then make sure people are out to Marshal as quickly as possible to keep the program moving.

Marshalling
There will only be 45 seconds between heats.
Drop your vehicles and head right out to marshal.
Anyone not at their bucket before the tone starts will be docked a lap from their best qualifier of the day.

We will enforce a limit of 1 practice lap before a race to keep the program moving at a decent pace.

Race Classes:
2wd Stock Buggy
2wd Mod Buggy
2wd Short Course Truck
2wd Stadium Truck
4wd Short Course Truck
4wd Stock Buggy
4wd Mod Buggy
* Sportsman

* Non-award class $10 entry

Class Rules:
We follow the basic ROAR class rules.
You can find the latest rule guide here: ROAR Racing
To sum it up we're looking for:
All classes - 2S lipo only with maximum charge of 8.40v.
2wd Short Course Truck - Open Motor and Speed Control.
2wd Stadium Truck - Open Motor and Speed Control.
2wd Stock Buggy - ROAR approved 17.5t motor and ROAR approved speed control in no-timing ("blinky") mode.
2wd Mod Buggy - Open Motor and Speed Control.
4wd Short Course Truck - Open Motor and Speed Control. 1/8th scale motors not allowed. 4pole 550 motors not advised.
4wd stock Buggy - ROAR approved 13.5t motor and ROAR approved speed control in no-timing ("blinky") mode.
4wd Mod Buggy - Open Motor and Speed Control.
Sportsman - Any 10th scale vehicle, open motor and speed control. The idea of sportsman class is to allow a driver to improve their driving to the point where they can race in their corresponding class.
If a racer in sportsman's qualifier laps is greater than 80% (rounded up) of the top qualifier time in the corresponding class then they will be moved to that class. (For example, a sportsman racer is racing with a 4x4 SCT. The top qualifier in 4x4 SCT is 12 laps in 5:00. If the sportsman racer gets 10 or more laps then they are ready to race in the regular class and they will be bumped into the 4x4 SCT class). The final decision is up to the race director.

Tech Inspection
Stock classes
2wd 17.5t buggy, 4wd 13.5t buggy
Checking weight, battery voltage, roar approved motor/esc
Everything will be out on the tech table to check throughout the day
Double check before coming up to be officially tech'd
Get your vehicles tech'd during the heat before your race.
Bring your vehicle to the tech table with the the body, batteries strapped in, radio on, ready to be plugged in.
Your vehicles stay in staging until racing starts.
Failure to go through tech will result in your qualifier being thrown out.

We will have Track Officials this year to watch the races to ensure it's fair and encourage clean racing.
Track Officials will watch the race from the drivers stand to call out wrecks, leaders in traffic, rough driving, etc They will issue a stop and Go if they see any rough driving. If you don't stop, they can 2-way the announcer to dock you a lap
It's in your best interest to listen to them because they can save you from hitting a wrecked vehicle or being docked a lap.

Door Prizes:
Each entry will give you 1 raffle ticket.
Additional raffle tickets can be purchased at the Dog Days table. The proceeds from raffle tickets go towards the purchase of a gift certificate from the hobby shop that the race is taking place at.

50/50 raffle tickets can be purchased up until the end of the 2nd round of qualifying. One ticket will be pulled from the 50/50 pool and that ticket holder will win 50% of the cash received from the 50/50 raffle sales. The other half of the proceeds will go towards the purchase of a gift certificate from the hobby shop that the race is taking place at.

Smaller door prizes awarded throughout the day. These will be a combination of the race entry and additional purchased raffle tickets. Winners will play a chance game (ducks, cups, etc) to determine which prize box to choose from.

Hobby Shop Gift Certificate will be purchased with the proceeds from the additional door prize and 50/50 ticket sales. This prize will only pulled from the original entry raffle tickets for this prize.

Larger door prizes awarded at the end of the first and second round of qualifying by drawing from the original entry tickets and additional door prize tickets.

Dog Days Staff:
James Furgeson will be the race announcer and run the program at each event.
Jason Houseman will be running the Tech program for stock classes at all 10 of the races to ensure that the Tech program is consistent throughout the series and bonus race.
Jamie Groff will be in charge of the Track Officials at each of the races in the series.
Ethan Houseman will be managing the Dog Days table where the additional door prize tickets, 50/50 tickets, t-shirts, and awards mounts can be purchased. He will also be pulling raffle tickets throughout the day for the door prizes.
Shaun Duffy will continue to be the series organizer.

We will be following up with a track spotlight interview for each of the tracks so you know what to expect before you come to them.

Looking forward to the 3 Carpet races this year.

Also, as for the tshirts, do racers get a t-shirt with their first signup like last year, or do we have to buy them this time?

There's still plenty of races left in the series. If you're concerned about points we're allowing 2 drops so you're still good there. Hope to see you at the next race on Saturday January 5th at Richfield Raceway (Richfield, Pa)
