All classes will be charged an entry fee to compete. All collected money will pool to form one big pot. Each class will take a percentage of that pot, and each podium finish will take a percentage of that class's money.
EXAMPLE: Total pot is $2500. You place 1st in the Modified Class.
Modified class pays 25%, 1st place pays 50%.
$2500 × 0.25 × 0.50 = $312.50
Any class that has 3 or less racers will pay out only to 1st place. Payout amount will be 75% of that class's pot.
The following is a calculator to show how much each class will payout. Change the number of trucks in the left side, and watch the prizes in the right side! Click reset to use the numbers from last year's competition.
Remember, the more trucks that compete, the larger everyone's prizes are! Bring your friends!
Running order will be determined randomly before the competition. All drivers are allowed to run twice. Second runs are in reverse order. Once the running order has been determined, registration is closed. There will be no late entries.
Each vehicle will only be allowed to run with one driver.
Each vehicle can run in two different classes if a tire change or class mod is performed. Another driver MUST be substituted. Entry fees apply for both classes.
Drivers are responsible for ALL damage to their vehicles.
Drivers will be responsible for the correct staging order.
All drivers will submit to a pre-race vehicle inspection. Helmets are strongly recommended.
All drivers that are awarded prizes will submit to a post-race vehicle inspection as well.
When a vehicle number is called, the driver has 1 minute to start heading toward the line or face disqualification.
All drivers must obey the starting line judge. Entrants will line up with the center of the front tire on the starting line and will not move until signaled by the starting line official.
Drivers will stay between the mud pit edges and have 5 minutes time to make it through, but must be moving forward during all that time. If the vehicle ceases to move forward for longer than 30 seconds, the flagman will signal to the driver who will stop the competition.
Distance measurement will be from the starting line to the final resting place of the center of the front tire.
Time measurement starts at the first movement of the vehicle and continues until the center of the front tire crosses the finish line. Time measurement will be taken by two independent judges with two stopwatches. Final time is the average of the two recorded times.
The driver must approve the tow hook up.
Drivers must not exceed 5 MPH while exiting/entering the competition area.
All vehicles must be removed from the competition area within 24 hours of the event ending.
No alcoholic beverages will be allowed before, during, or after competition, or on the New Mexico Tech campus.
Disobeying these rules will result in disqualification and the driver/crew may be asked to leave the grounds.
All drivers must have a current, valid driver's license. Drivers under the age of 18 must have a legal guardian present and must have written permission from guardian to compete.
Official's rulings are FINAL. Disputes of class placement must take place before first run. Further disputes of class placement, or recorded times, distances, final standings, etc. will incur a fee of $50. Fee will be refunded if dispute is accurate.
