There will be a pre race inspection to ensure vehicles are stock Power Wheels (or similar) brand electric car. Remember, this is for the kids, please do not attempt to cheat, DQ’s will be issued.
- Jump start rule: Kids will be kids, they will be anxious and nervous at the starting line. For that reason, this rule will help with setting guidelines. If a child jumps the start, it will be a no start. Get back in line, try it again.. if it happens again, get back in line and try again. After that, if the same one jumps, they will be set back 2 car lengths as a penalty. If they do it again, 2 more. If it happens again.. they will sit that race out. So, 2 tries for a regular start... After that, 2 more tries with 2 lengths added each time. No fifth try.
- Stock class rules: 6 or 12 volt power wheels as they are when bought new. No performance modifications at all! No rubber added to the tires! No 24 volt power wheels. No bigger motor/motors. No additional voltages added! If it came on a 6 or 12 volt power wheel, it's allowed. May have a aftermarket body for looks. Parents may not be on the track with racers after they have been lined up for start, no push starts. Racers will be DQ'd if so.
- Bicycle helmets required for all drivers
- Race format will be determined by the number of entrants
