2016 Class Rules


 

Class Guidelines
  The Triple Index Class is based on a 12.60/11.60/10.60 Index and uses a "5/10ths Pro Tree" start system and will utilize a Sportsman ladder for pairings. Triple Index offers an "All Run" field, so everyone will make it to elimination day!!!   "Door slammer-type" vehicles only are permitted. Any and all performance modifications are legal, no tire size limits (Slicks OK), no minimum weight requirements, and all power adders are accepted. 

Electronics Policies:
The Following Devices are Illegal: (And Have To Be Completely Removed From Car)
*Electronic / Pneumatic / or any Remotely Activated Throttle Stops
*Optical Sensors / Stutter Boxes

The Following Devices are Legal:
* 2 & 3 Step Rev-Limiters

*Electric / Hydraulic Pneumatic Clutch Release Devices
*MSD-7 and/or any other Ignition Box that contains Programmable Timing Functions

Qualifying:
  All Triple Index cars will receive 3 qualifying runs (.500 Pro Tree) on Saturday (Time Permitting), #1 Qualifier will be determined by the closest run to the 12.60/11.60/10.60 index without going quicker. In the event of 2 or more cars running the same qualified ET, the driver who posts the time first will be awarded with the qualified spot. If you run quicker than the 12.60/11.60/10.60 Index on all 3 runs, you will be placed at the bottom of the ladder for eliminations. Since this is a "All Run Field" if a racer misses all qualifying sessions, they still can be placed on the bottom of the ladder if the driver notifies PSCA Officials prior to the Sunday Morning Mandatory Drivers Meeting

Staging:
  All drivers must stage the car on his/her own without the assistance of a crew member (You will be Disqualified by the starter if you have assistance). Deep staging is permitted but not recognized by the starter (if you want to go deep it's on the driver) Auto-Start will be on.

Burn-Out Procedure:
  Triple Index does not allow burn-outs across the starting line. You must complete your burn-out and stop without crossing the starting line.

Lane Choice:
  During 1st round of elimination's the higher qualified car will have lane choice.. In the 2nd round and beyond, the driver that is closest to the 12.60/11.60/10.60 Index without going quicker will be awarded lane choice. If both drivers go under the Index, the driver that is closer to 12.60/11.60/10.60 will be awarded lane choice for that round.

Tow Vehicles:
  Triple Index does not allow tow vehicles of any sort in the staging lanes. You can tow your vehicle back to the pits at the conclusion of your run after exiting the racing surface.
