2020 VP Racing Lubricants Mid-America Heads-up and Super Index Series

 

World Wide Technology Raceway is continuing the VP Racing Lubricants Mid-America Heads-up Series for the 2020 season. This series features track prep geared more toward small-tire cars than your typical bracket car. The Mid-America Heads-up Series provides an alternative racing program from the bracket classes and gives drivers more opportunities to win.

Schedule: August 7, September 26, September 27 (with IFO; heads-up only), October 17.

 

HEADS-UP CLASS RULES:

General rules and guidelines

  1. Five-minute clean-up rule: If you release any fluids on the track and it takes more than five (5) minutes to clean up you will be disqualified.
  2. Guaranteed: Three passes for the event. If a racer is eliminated they can race in Test ‘n’ Tune only for their final pass.
  3. All racers will be given one (1) time trial prior to elimination rounds. This is assuming you make it to the track in time for time trials. If you are late and miss time trials you are only allowed two (2) passes for the night.
  4. All Racers are expected to meet at MAHUS table after each round for chip draw and callouts. If you are absent we will draw your chip for you. If you break but still win your race you must contact us immediately after your pass. You can send someone to pull for you in the chip draw.
  5. All classes require racing tires – no street tires allowed.
