Pro Division Info

Format for Pro Division Racing
  • The 2019 Mid America Pro Divisions will be held on a state of the art 6 lane 42′ Best Track that has been upgraded and dialed in so that consistent and performance results happen - providing the best you can race on.
  • Each car will get 6 runs, one run in each lane - the average of the best 5 runs will be used to compute composite time in determining who will advance to finals.  After the preliminary 6 runs either 6 or 12 builders (depending on size of class) will move to a championship round to determine a winner. The number of cars taken will depend on how if the class size is larger than 36 cars if it is less than 6 will advance if it is larger than 12 will advance. Only one car per builder will advance.
  • The finals will consist of 6 more runs. The fastest average of those 5 runs (dropping the worst time) will determine the winner. Each builder can only claim one spot in the final standings.
  • 1st through 6th place will be awarded in Each Class - 1 trophy per class per builder
  • Best of Show Trophy - voted on by VIP Mid America Derby Panel of Judges
  •  Awards will be announced throughout the Day in the Awards Auditorium
**There will likely be some special Awards above and beyond - stay tuned**
