Fast Lane Fridays will run under a lightweight rule package to ensure equal competition and allow almost all vehicles and modifications to be eligible. There will be three classes for the 2017 season.
The Outlaw Class (formerly Competition / Pro) features cars that are not necessarily completely street legal. Most cars are classic muscle with performance modifications and racing slicks and others are full blown drag cars featuring full roll cages and 600+ horsepower engines.
The Street Class features cars that are completely street legal. They may not necessarily be completely showroom stock; but if they can pass emission testing and not have the police need to site them a ticket for excessive noise and/or ‘non-legal components’ they are welcome to race on most DOT approved tires.
The Bike Class is where it gets really interesting. This is the broadest of all the classes whether they have two wheels or four, motorcycle or dirt bike, quad, lawn mower, or snowmobile, if you can race it this is the division for you. The Fast Lane Friday events will also have a point system and will award a champion in each class at year’s end.
