The American Drag Racers Affiliated Guild of Competition Acceleration Recreation
DRAGCAR PROTEST PROCEDURES
does not currently
mandate post race teardowns on a regular basis, reasonable suspicion inspections
and racer initiated protest procedures may be executed.
Any racer refusing to comply with the protest inspection will forfeit all season qualifying and race points accumulated as well as 66 percent of all monies awarded at the event of the protest filing, and the protesting racer shall be refunded the full protest fee.
In the event that the protested racer's vehicle is found to be correct as claimed on their technical data sheet, that racer shall receive the full protest fee as compensation for parts and labor. Said racer's protested vehicle shall also be exempt from any future protests for a period of 6 consecutive months so long as his/her under index performance does not exceed that of any single quickest run during the event at the time of protest by over 1/2 of one percent of that racer's current index.
Example: Protested racer's index during the event at which he/she was protested was 11.10 and their best posted E.T. during the event was 10.697.
11.10 - 10.697
= Under Index Performance .403
This protested vehicle is exempt from protests unless it's under index
performance exceeds .459 seconds, meaning that if while still running on an
11.10 index at a subsequent event during this 6 month period and it runs as
quick as 10.641, no racer initiated protests will be executed on this vehicle.
NOTE: Considerable atmospheric conditional changes will be taken into consideration in any event that this may have had an impact on performances being better than those allowed for in the protest policies stated here.
In the event that the protested racer is found to be racing an incorrectly claimed vehicle, that racer shall forfeit all qualifying and race points awarded at the event in which the protest took place as well as 33 percent of all monies awarded at this event. Their vehicle index will be corrected according to the inspection data and their under index performance will be established based on the corrected index. This racer's vehicle will now be exempt from any future protests for a period of 6 months as long as their under index performance does not exceed that of any single quickest run during the event at the time of protest by over 1/2 of one percent of that racer's current true found index. The racer initiating the protest will be refunded the full protest fee in this instance as well.
