Shift-S3ctor is excited to announce that the California Airstrip Attack Presented by Gintani will be October 26th and 27th at the New Coalinga Municipal Airport in Coalinga, California. This will be a 1/2 mile, side by side racing event and trap speed competition. Both automobiles and motorcycles are permitted.

*For those requesting media access, please fill out the application at*

Vehicles will start from a stop and trap speed will be clocked at the 1/2 mile point on the runway. Drivers will receive speeds at the end of each run.

The Breakdown:

Saturday & Sunday’s formats are identical. Vehicles choosing not to run in the trophy 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.

Trap Speed Competition Classes:

  • AWD Unlimited by Sheepey Race – AWD Drivetrain
  • 2WD Unlimited by Elite Finish Detailing – FWD or RWD Drivetrain
  • 6-Speed (Manual) by Pacific Sun Financial– Must have manual transmission and clutch, no sequential transmissions
  • Exotic by ModFind- Vehicle cost $150k+ MSRP when new, bolt-on modifications or less, no aftermarket power adders (Turbo/Supercharger/Nitrous). Forced Induction vehicles must retain factory superchargers (porting is OK) or factory turbocharger housings (impeller upgrade is OK)
  • German Car Shootout by BMW San Rafael – Any German vehicle with factory german-based powerplant, no modification restrictions.
  • Naturally Aspirated by Ticket Dismissers – No forced induction or power adders (turbocharger, supercharger, nitrous, electric, etc.)
  • Sedan by Speed Logic – Four doors required, wagons permitted
  • Motorcycle by Metric Method Cycles- motorcycles only

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.

If a vehicle competing in a class exceeds 180mph without the proper safety equipment, that vehicle will be disqualified from the competition.

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.


Please note our updated 2019 Rules and Regulations found by clicking here.


To further emphasize these points in our 2019 Rules and Regulations at the link above, it is required that all participants exceeding 180mph have the following gear and safety equipment:

  • Helmet – Snell SA2010 or newer (same as all participants)
  • Gloves – SFI-rated
  • Fire Suit – SFI-rated
  • Seat Belts – Properly installed SFI or FIA rated harnesses with at minimum 4-points.
  • Roll Bar – minimum of 4-points
  • Fire Extinguisher – mounted within reach of driver
  • Neck Restraint – HANS device or similar

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 and have record that you have accomplished two safe passes, you will be permitted to exceed 180+ so long as the participant and vehicle have the proper safety equipment.

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 a prior event with Shift-S3ctor.

If you exceed 180MPH without the required safety equipment, you will no longer be able to participate in the event.
