For 2002, the Cartek Corvette Challenge will be run under the rules and guidelines set forth by Raceway Park.   Please click on the link below to go to the Raceway Park web page.  Then click on the link for "Racing Rules".  Also, please click on the link for "Classes" for a description of the Corvette Challenge Class.  Click here for the Raceway Park web page.

Basic Safety Rules

A helmet must be worn.  If you do not own one, you can rent one at the track for $3.00 and your license will be held until return of the helmet.  Drivers must wear long pants and a shirt with sleeves (except where a fire jacket is required) when on the track.  During the hot summer days many of use just wear shorts under gym pants and take off the gym pants between runs.  Then throw the gym pants on for the run.  Cars running faster than 12.00 seconds will require a rollbar and the driver to wear fire jacket.  Convertibles must have a rollbar if they run faster than 14.00 seconds.  (However if the convertible has a hardtop, it can run up to 12.00 without a rollbar.  If you have a convertible, check out the hardtops from Smooth Line.  Additionally, if your car is required to have a rollbar, it is also required for the driver to wear a 3" wide 5-point safety harness and fire suit.  Keep in mind, we are a group of Corvette drivers having fun and the track has the right to impose any rule for the safety of the participants.  This paragraph is not intended to be a complete rules list but a guideline for those that are unfamiliar with drag racing rules.  In addition, rules can be read in on the race track web page at the link provided Raceway Park Drag Racing Rules.

Raceway Park will enforce noise levels at the track

Raceway Park has to adhere to maximum noise levels on its Saturday night programs.  All drivers have to adhere to the noise level guidelines.  Most Corvette Challenge drivers will have no issue with the noise levels, however we need to ensure that you are aware that noise levels will be monitored.  Modified Corvettes with aftermarket exhaust and headers will pass the test.  However, if you think you car is too loud, you should test it to ensure you are not louder than the maximum allowed noise levels.  Many of our drivers have been tested and have passed the noise level restrictions.  Following is a message from Raceway Park as well as a link the Raceway Park official notification.

A message from Raceway Park

The decibel (DB) level will be measured in the following way:
The car will be 100 feet away from the meter (the meter is a $45 Radio Shack analog type).  The driver will bring the RPM up to 5500 and hold it for 5 seconds and then "gun" the motor two times.  The test will be done 2 times.  This will give Raceway Park a representative DB reading on your car.  It should not measure over 90 DB. If your car is over 90 DB at the tech inspection booth, you will not be able to race.  Also, if the management of Raceway Park feels your car is too loud and measures the DB level on the track it cannot be over 96 DB under load (launch or burnout).  If you go over the 96 DB limit on the track, which is done 100 ft to the side of the car, you will not be allowed to race. 

There will be no exceptions to the DB limit on Saturday or Friday nights.

Points information

The following information is extremely important.  For the 2002 Cartek Corvette Challenge, points will be kept by Raceway Park.  You MUST sign up for points.  You do not have to sign up for points to participate but you do have to sign up for points to be eligible for POINTS prizes.  For 2002, the Cartek Corvette Challenge has been added to the Raceway Park Sunoco Saturday Points Series.

If you plan on competing in the Raceway Park Points Series for 2002 the points series will be as follows;

  1. By signing up for points by the first point's day (April 6th, 2002), you will receive 1 point.
  2. By staging your car in the first round of eliminations, you will receive 1 point.
  3. For each round you win during eliminations, you will receive 1 point.
  4. Tie breaker positions are as follows
    1. Number of elimination wins
    2. The rating point system will be in effect.  At the end of each race, you will be assigned a number based on what position you are in (or tied for).  That number will be represented as a negative number next to your total points. This rating system rewards drivers who end up tied but have maintain higher rankings throughout the season as the lowest negative number will come first.  For example if in the first week you finish first, you will be assigned a -1.  The following week you are in 3rd place you will be assigned a -3.  Your total negative number will be -4.  If a driver finished in fourth place (-4) week one and then first in week 2 (-1) and you both have the same number of points, you will win the tie breaker because you have a -4 vs. his -5.  Confused, email me and I can try to explain better edgarperez@corvettechallenge.info.
    3. A Run-off on the last day of Points.

As the points will be kept by Raceway Park, a link will be provided to the Raceway Park site as soon as it is up.

If you have not signed up for points contact Raceway Park at 732-446-7800 or at www.racewaypark.com.
