PREFACE    (Complete Rules Can also Be DownloadedHere)

The Western Fuel Altereds Racing Series has been developed to provide fun, safe and affordable heads up racing.

This is not an alternative sanctioning body and with that must comply with all rules and regulations of the track sanction.

At NHRA tracks we are considered an “association”. Therefore we are required to meet the rules outlined under ET and/or Adv ET in the NHRA rulebook. The “Nostalgia Rules Supplement” does not apply to our “association”.

Prior to competition all cars must pass a safety technical inspection by the track, or track assigned personnel. Failure to comply with track requirements is grounds for dismissal and forfeiture of any monies and points associated with the event. Any dispute that cannot be resolved between the competitor and the track shall be brought to the attention of the series director prior to competition.

SERIES MEMBERSHIP

Every competitor must be a member of the series to compete at an event. Membership dues not paid prior to the event will be deducted from the competitors final payout at the first event attended.

Annual Membership is $250. 

RACE PROCEDURES

Format   

Modified Shootout..  Everyone runs, whether it is 8 cars or 20 cars.  First round the quick 8 get paid. Second round the quick 8 in second round get paid. Each round stands individual to determine payout. The quick 2 ET’s, from either round, come back to RACE in the final. Red lights do not count during round racing for payout, only in the final.
