OGS1320 PRESS RELEASES
Press Releases are sent via email. If you are a SFWD or ALL MOTOR racer, please inform tech@ogs1320.com so we can add you to our email list.

DRAG RACING PROTEST GUIDELINES
A racer protest must be filed by a competitor of the same class. All protests must be filed in detail and accepted in writing with OGS1320 Tech Officials by no later than the completion of the last round of qualifying. Protest forms will be available at Tech. OGS1320 Tech Officials reserve the right to protest the filing and choose to accept or reject the protest, at their discretion. A racer protest must be accompanied with the proper cash protest fee of $500. The protested vehicle and/or vehicle components in question will be sealed as necessary and inspected at some point before the first round of eliminations. The protested vehicle and/or vehicle components must be disassembled for inspection and re-assembled by the vehicles owner(s) and/or his designated crew.

During the inspection, only representatives of the protested vehicle may be present. If the protested vehicle is found to be within the rules and guidelines of the class, the protest fee will be given to the owner of the protested vehicle. If the protested vehicle is found to NOT be within the rules and guidelines for the class, the protest fee will be given back to the racer who filed the protest and the vehicle owner will be required to pay a fine of $500 (this amount will be put towards the Annual points series payout — OGS1320 will not keep the money) and will be disqualified from the event. Any infraction(s) to the rules and guidelines of the class, even those beyond those in the original filed racer protest, will be grounds for disqualification. OGS1320 reserves the right to impose fines, suspension, disqualification, and/or revoke competition privileges for non-compliant entrants.

Refusing inspection and/or disassembly may result in the following:
1. Removal of the vehicle from competition.
2. Race suspension of the driver and loss of competition points for all previous points series events.
3. Removal of the vehicle, owner, and crew from the racing facility.

SFWD & ALL MOTOR FUEL GUIDELINES
Beginning at Spring Nationals on 4/30/16 and 5/1/16 at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park, OGS1320 will require all SFWD and All Motor racers to purchase their fuel for the event directly from the racetrack. SFWD and All Motor racers will NO longer be allowed to use their personal fuel during qualifying and eliminations at all HDAY and BIG3 events. The fuel for the event will be owned by the corresponding track and the track guarantees that there will be more than enough fuel to last the entire event.

GENERAL RACER GUIDELINES
All OGS1320 events are hosted at NHRA sanctioned tracks, therefore all NHRA safety rules and Guidelines must be followed at all times. It is the sole responsibility of each competitor to ensure that their vehicle is in absolute compliance of any and all 2016 NHRA rules. OGS1320 class rules are solely for the purpose of insuring side by side competition and in no way shape or form supersede or conflict with NHRA safety rules and Guidelines. All NHRA safety rules and Guidelines must be followed at all times during the course of each event.

Full OGS1320 class rules are listed on OGS1320.com

All racers who participate at OGS1320 events are agreeing to conduct themselves in a sportsmanlike manner* and obey tech official decisions. Failure to adhere will result in suspension from racing at OGS1320 events. The length of the suspension will be determined by OGS1320 and any racer that fails to abide will receive a written letter to define the violation and length of suspension.
*Unsportsmanlike conduct is a foul or offense in many sports that violates the sports’ generally accepted rules of sportsmanship and participant conduct; including arguing with/or abusing officials.

Each racer tech card entitles the purchaser: admission, ability to tech/race a vehicle, parking space for the race car and tow vehicle/trailer (if the vehicle is towed).

Racers are not permitted to set up displays (includes: manufacturer tents/flags/product displays) or sell new products of any sort in their space in the pits (this includes promotional handouts and apparel).
Exceptions:
– Racers are permitted to use a manufacturer’s tent in their pit area for the sole purpose of parking their vehicle under the tent.
– Racers are permitted to sell up to 1 team t-shirt and hat design (The sales of apparel for individual manufacturers/sponsors is not permitted. A team that has multiple cars, each with their own sponsors is only permitted to sell 1 t-shirt and hat design for the team.).
– Racers are permitted to display shop/team flags.
