The Breakdown:

Saturday & Sunday’s formats are identical. Vehicles choosing not to run in the trophy and prize competition can run openly throughout each day, running side-by-side with another vehicle or solo for trap speed. Those registered for the trophy competition will run in a shootout style competition. Trophies will be awarded at the end of each day for each competition class. Vehicles registered for the trophy competition are also free to run openly, but must make passes during the formatted competition times to qualify for each stage.

Competition Format:

Vehicles can register for the trophy competition or open runs. Registration type and class must be selected at the time of online registration.

All drivers registered in the trophy competition will be competing in a trap speed competition on their respective registered day(s).

  • Stage 1: Drivers may do as many passes as possible from 9:00 AM-1:00 PM.  At 1:00 PM the top four (4) qualifying vehicles in each class will be announced.
  • Stage 2: The top four (4) qualifying vehicles in each class may do as many passes as possible between 1:00 PM-3:00 PM. A minimum of one pass must be made between 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM to qualify for the next round.  At 3:00 PM the top two (2) qualifying vehicles will be announced.
  • Final: The top two (2) vehicles will report to grid at 4:00 PM for the final run. The final run of each day will determine 1st and 2nd place for each class. Both vehicles will line up and will go at the same time, with the fastest trap speed taking 1st place. There will be no reruns and fastest trap speed of this run will take 1st place and the other vehicle will take 2nd place for the respective day and class.
  • Both 1st and 2nd place drivers are required to be physically present at the trophy ceremony to collect their trophy once racing ends each day.
  • Trap speeds for each stage and the finals will only apply to that specific round. Trap speeds from previous stages or run outside of the time frame, will not count for later stages.
  • If a registered vehicle does not qualify for Round 2 or Final Round, it can still make open runs until racing ends each day, but will not qualify for a trophy.
  • Cars must register to compete online or on site before the first race of the day. (Competition entry must be selected at time of registration)
  • Trap speeds for the race shootout will only apply to that day. Trap speeds set in runs on Saturday will not count for Sunday’s race shootout.
  • Drivers may only enter one class at a time. A driver cannot register a vehicle in multiple classes per day.
  • Any competitor may request for race officials to inspect any competitor car to check the validity of the vehicle and the class entered at any time before trophies have been presented, whichever occurs first. Requests after this time will not be accommodated.

On Sunday, the format will be identical to that of Saturday.

Who Can Come:

Drivers: The event is open to all types of cars and all horsepower levels. Each registered driver may bring up to 2 guests/crew free of charge.

Spectators: All others who wish to spectate must purchase spectator tickets available here on our website. We are only selling a limited number per day in order to meet our capacity requirements. We will also be selling tickets at the gate subject to availability. Once we reach capacity, we will not let anyone else in. We highly suggest purchasing tickets in advance. Spectators who purchase tickets are required to print out their emailed ticket.

What To Bring:


  • It is mandatory to bring a helmet (Snell 2000+)
  • Each participant is required to completely fill out and sign a waiver/self tech form to submitted upon arrival at the event
  • All vehicles attempting to go over 180MPH are required to do 2 solo passes at 180MPH, observed by tech staff, to ensure safety and stability. Only after will they be approved to go 180+mph.
  • All vehicles that run over 190MPH require a mounted fire extinguisher, 4-point roll cage, and fire suit/jacket. Failure to maintain these requirements will result in immediate removal from the event.
  • We recommend additional safety equipment FOR ALL PARTICIPANTS including but not limited to: Roll bar or full cage, fire suit and clothing/gloves, fire suppression system, hans or similar type of restraint for neck protection, arm restraints or window net
  • We recommend additional safety equipment FOR ALL PARTICIPANTS including but not limited to: Roll bar or full cage, fire suit and clothing/gloves, fire suppression system, hans or similar type of restraint for neck protection, arm restraints or window net
  • You are responsible for ensuring the safety and capabilities of your car at this event
  • All convertibles require roll over protection: either factory or an aftermarket roll bar


It is required that all cars aiming to trap over 180+ go through our own independent tech inspection in addition to filling out your self tech form. This will occur on grid either before your first run or before your second run.

To be licensed to go 180+mph, each driver must do two solo passes (one in each lane) between 170mph and 180 mph. This is to ensure that you can do a safe pass at that speed as observed by our staff. Once we see you have accomplished two safe passes, we will issue you a wristband licensing you to go over 180+mph.

Qualifying for a license on Saturday will be good for both days of the event.
Licenses issued in our records to drivers at any previous Shift-S3ctor events will carry over. You do not need to go through licensing again if you already did at the last event, your car will still need to pass tech inspection. At our discretion, we may issue provisional licenses for certain individuals we have seen at past events accomplish these requirements already.

If you exceed 180MPH with a car that has not been through our tech inspection and/or you are not licensed to go over 180MPH, you will be restricted to sub 180MPH. If you continue to go beyond that, you will be removed from the event without refund.

  • Helmets must be full face, rated Snell M2005 or newer, with appropriate stickers. Shell, liner, and strap must be in sound condition. Shatterproof shields required with adequate visibility.
