Default Bracket class at home track

There is no motorcycle bracket racing at our home track, which is NHRA track, very nice facility etc. ( Castrol Raceway Edmonton ).

I've made some inquiries at the track and said they'd run a class no problem.

Having said that, they'll be a mix of bikes ( metrics and V-twin ) I'd imagine, ranging from 8.XX bikes and up. Looking for input on class or classes with a low bike count ( for now ) to keep it simple.

Not sure what you’re looking for but at Lebanon Valley Dragway we run NHRA Division One rules. Handicap start on a .500 sportsman tree with TrueStart, low reaction time gets the bye. I’ve run with as little as 7 bikes and more than 32. Simple, no problems.

I like that truestart! ( had to read up on it ).

Not sure our track has that but will look into it. Thanks Mac.

Tinz, The base MC rules are the same at New England Dragway for the MC/ sled ET Eliminator class. NHRA already has a rule package in the books for this type of class. NED also has an amateur (no money) MC class for "street" (no bar, no 2 step, hand clutch, no slider/ slipper clutch) bikes that is held on TnT days.

Thanks CW, we've got a fair mix of bikes so will blend some existing rules and try to keep everyone happy and racing at a fair price.

Speaking of price, what does a day of racing at your track cost? Gate plus entry fee?....how many runs on a good day?

Thanks fellas, were about the same then, $40 Friday night Street Legals where pretty much anything goes if it's safe, had 24 runs one night on the Sporty.

Our 'events' are $200 for the weekend plus gate ( ~$50 ) might get 10 hits, more if ya go rounds.
