ORP’s FRIDAY NIGHT STREET FIGHT Rules & Procedures 2023
CLASS DESCRIPTION: This is a No Time, Heads Up, Instant GREEN, shootout, ran on the 1/8th mile, for points. This class is exclusively for street legal vehicles which must be able to possibly “Hot Lap/Round Robin”.
SHOOTOUT: All shootout competitors must meet all the rules stated.
After shakedown runs the vehicles will be separated into 2 classes. Since this is a N/T event, the tower will identify the “Top 10” cars for that night. No times will be posted or disclosed and only the tower will have this data. The remaining vehicles not identified as the “Top 10” will be run in a separate bracket.
The classes will be paired randomly in the staging lanes with a deck of cards, where drivers will draw for their pairings. Before drawings start for 1st round, drivers in their respective brackets may call each other out for 1st round and if the challenges are accepted, they will be left out of the drawing for 1st round.
The “Top 10” (Street Fighter) and bottom bracket (Street Warrior) will compete for points and a winner for each race night. The winners in the Top 10 Street Fighter class as well as the Street Warrior class will accumulate points equally, allowing for 1 winner in both brackets each race night.
Crossing the centerline, hitting a cone, hitting the wall or a red light will all be considered a loss.
ALL cars must be driven to the staging lanes and from the end of the run to the pits. Towing from end of run to the pits or to staging lanes from pits is grounds for disqualification, excluding break downs, break downs will be verified. If you break during a run, including the burnout, it will be considered a loss.

WHEELS: Spindle-mount front wheels prohibited.
PROTEST/ROAD TRIP: If you feel that a competitor is not a true “street” car you may challenge them to a road trip for 1st round. The road trip challenge must go through the race director and be announced at the drivers meeting at time of 1st Round. Both vehicles will then be required to make the road trip and race each other for 1st round. The road trip will start from the rear of the staging lanes to the “Hot Spot” convenience store and back to the lanes (15 miles). Once the road trip is completed, the racers will be required to shut the car off and have 60 seconds to re-start the car again, under its own power, by the driver, from inside the vehicle, without assistance. Then both racers will be directed to suit up and race each other for 1st round. If you refuse to take the road trip, you break or cannot complete the road trip you will be disqualified, and no longer be able to compete for the remainder of that event. Failures include mechanical failures, running out of fuel, or being pulled over by police.
A racer that is challenged to a protest road trip may switch from a “non- DOT” tire to a “road approved” DOT tire for the protest road trip. Driver must be able to switch tires and conduct the road trip in a timely manner (i.e.: have them readily available/on hand and mounted on rims). This change must be pre-approved by the Race Director and is subject to change without notice.
There is a $100.00 protest fee to force a competitor to complete the road trip. If the protested driver successfully completes the road trip, he/she keeps the money. If the driver fails to complete the road trip, the protest fee returns to the driver who initiated the protest.
POINTS SYSTEM : Points members will receive 20 points once their car is teched in and they have run first round (the purchase of a tech card without the car present to receive the 20 attendance points is prohibited).
Thereafter, each round won will grant 10 additional points, and a bonus of 1 point for class win. In a 6-round race, for example, 1st round losers receive 20 points, 2nd round losers 30 points, 3rd round losers 40 points, 4th round losers 50 points, 5th round losers 60 points, runner-up 70 points and winner 81 points. In the event of breakage prior to first round, you can receive a credit (no points will be earned). You may also waive the credit and receive 20 points. If you cannot run and wish to receive the 20 breakage points, you must notify Race Control before the tower closes that night. Points are tracked by car number; therefore, you must run the same car number each race to accrue points.
At the completion of the season, the driver who has accumulated the most points will be crowned the ORP Top 10 List champion and will be presented with a championship belt and any money donated by sponsors.
TIE BREAKERS: To eliminate the need for runoffs between racers that are tied in the final points, tie breakers will be used to determine higher position. This system will ensure that the class has a definitive Top 10 with no ties in points at the end of the year. When tie breakers are used, any drivers tied will be sorted in tie-breaker order, and those drivers will have a “TB” listed after their points.
OFFICIAL TIE BREAKER ORDER
1st – Driver with the MOST POINTS RACES WON during the current season
2nd- Driver with the MOST POINTS RACE RUNNER-UPS during the current season
3rd – Driver with the MOST SEMI-FINAL ROUND APPEARANCES in points races during the current season
Note: This set of class rules is presented to all competitors under the assumption that any modifications not specifically written within these rules shall be deemed illegal unless the competitor has the expressed consent from the Race Director.
Event Director Decisions: Every effort has been made by ORP to promote fair and honest racing for all participants. Event Director may waive, amend, or modify any rule at any time for any single occurrence, for any good cause to maintain the spirit of the program. The Event Director’s decision is final and entry in the competition is acknowledgment that the participant accepts this ruling without recourse.
