Heads-Up Outlaw All-Stars Series at Gateway Sat. May 16th!



Saturday, May 16th: The 2009 Outlaw All Stars Series at Gateway International Raceway

On Saturday, May 16th, 2009, true heads-up racing finally comes to Gateway International Raceway! With spectator admission only $10 and a class for almost every car, the new Outlaw All Stars Series makes its debut at Gateway International Raceway in Madison, Illinois. The OAS, designed to offer affordable non-handicapped drag racing on a local level, will include five Index-based Eliminators and three Heads-Up categories.

As promised, the OAS will offer very low entry fees for equally modest purses but will accommodate virtually any vehicle. The program and its rules were created with a goal of offering nearly all competitors a class in which to compete without the expense of adding new equipment. All purses will be based on the number of entries in each competition division and, initially, will be presented to the winner and runner-up in each class. Purse money will be accrued from all competitors above the basic $20 GIR entry fee for all contestants. Payout to the finalists will be 70% of the total accrued awarded to the winner and 30% of the total accrued awarded to the runner-up in each eliminator category.

All vehicles entered for competition must pass a basic NHRA technical inspection and must comply with all rules for the eliminator category entered as well as the NHRA-mandated regulations for advanced performance including additional safety equipment, chassis construction and driver licensing requirements.


SPECTATORS

Spectator admission: $10 with children under 12 years admitted free.


GENERAL OUTLAW ALL STAR SERIES REGULATIONS

1. All vehicles in all categories must utilize a body produced by a recognized production automobile manufacturer. Any modifications to bodies are permitted within the parameters of NHRA General Regulations. Hoods are optional.

2. Maximum wheelbase for any vehicle is 130 inches measured from front axle centerline to rear axle centerline. Street roadsters, (left-hand drive), and altered roadsters, (center drive), are permitted in Index categories only.

3. Burnouts under power past the starting line are permitted, (and strongly encouraged), in all heads-up categories. Burnouts under power past the starting line are prohibited in all Index categories.

4. All eliminator categories will be started utilizing a Pro Start system set at four-tenths of a second. Deep staging is permitted.

5. All Index Categories will allow all cars entered to compete. All Heads-Up categories will include only the eight quickest qualifiers based on elapsed times recorded during the official qualifying sessions. Alternates may be inserted into the field and will assume the position of any qualifier unable to compete in eliminations. Non-qualifiers in the Heads-Up categories may compete in the Index category of their choice at no additional charge.

6. All pneumatic, electronic and hydraulic throttle stop devices are prohibited in all categories.

7. All electronic ignition interruption devices are prohibited in all categories.

8. All electronic throttle delay driving aides, (i.e., “delay boxes”), are prohibited in all categories.

9. All categories will compete in quarter-mile competition with the exception of Outlaw Eliminator which will compete in eighth-mile competition.
