    All cars will be inspected before the race. If any cars fail inspection and have not followed the rules, that car will be disqualified and the entry fee will not be returned. Please take this very seriously, as we want to deter anyone from trying to bend the rules in their favor. Let's stick to the rules and make this fun for everyone! If it doesn't specify that something is allowed in the rules, ask me first or just don't do it to be safe.

    Format: The 12 cars will be split into two groups randomly. Please note that if we have two of the same livery, they will automatically be in opposite groups for the heat race. The two groups of six cars will then have a short qualifying session to determine starting position for the heat race. Once the starting position is determined, the two groups of six cars will have a heat race. The heat races will be a total of 120 laps, broken down into six 20 lap segments where each of our six drivers will drive each car once. At the end of these heat races, the top three cars from each group will advance to the final.The starting order for the final race will be determined by the finishing order and number of total laps in the heat races. The final race will be run just as the heat race, a total of 120 laps broken down into six 20 lap segments where each of our six drivers will drive each car once. The car with the most laps at the end of the six segments will be the winner.

    Content: Each race will be recorded. I will then edit each video with commentary. I will do my best to release the videos very soon after the event is over, but it will be a lot of work with the amount of footage we will have. This is something that I believe everyone can enjoy. I will also post live updates on FB and here on the forums once qualifying is done so that people will know where there cars are starting etc. My goal is to provide everyone that is participating with a premium experience!

    For those interested, I have run one other proxy before here at Snyderville Speedway. Here is a link to that one, I have some experience under my belt now and feel like this will be a much better proxy all around! If you would like to register, please sign up here and declare which car you will be using. If you have any questions, please feel free to post here or contact me at Thanks!
