Class Descriptions

"Thunder in the Valley" is run based on the rules put out by the NHRA in regards to safety and general procedures, but PLEASE keep in mind that this is NOT a sanctioned track and that we have different standards regarding insurance etc so there are some rules we apply that may be different. Among those includes

 A driver may only race in 1(one) class ,

 All drivers must be the sole occupant of the vehicle during a race

All drivers regardless of speed/class MUST wear a helmet.

Helmets must be SNELL 2010 or Newer ! 2010 dated helmets are good until 1/1/2022.

 These are just a couple of examples, feel free to contact us if you want more information. Remember, this is what we would like to consider a "fun" weekend of racing, a bit of a break from the regular grind so please understand if things are not quite they are at your home track. Now lets go burn some rubber!
