PRO STICK Racing â

 

 

WELCOME!

 

Real Race Cars Have A Clutch!  By popular demand, in 1996 a few long time stick shift bracket racers got together and held a race at the famed 75-80 dragway in Maryland.  The class became known as Pro Stick.  Over the years since, this Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia based group continues to attract new cars and grow in spectator popularity.  This site is intended to provide some general information to our racers and fans.  You will find current news, a list of our supporters, our rules, the schedule, race results, and series points.  For additional information other than what is provided below, or to purchase our Real Race Cars logo T-Shirts etc., please phone 301-416-2319. 

 

PRO STICK CURRENT NEWS

The site was last updated on March 31, 2014

 

The schedule is final in the usual spot below.

 

As you may have noticed on our Facebook page, the April issue of RPM magazine has done an article about our group, and Ed Brady is the cover shot.  Other cars pictured within the article include Frank Jenkins, Freddie Leyland, Greg Corbin, Brian Barker, Matt Bergenstock, Dan Hoyler, Larry Carasea, Michael Ford, both Charcalla cars, Wayne Whittington, Fred House, Leonard Long, and Eric Kitchen.  Eric ordered thirty copies of the magazine and will give one each to the drivers who are pictured.  The magazines are available at Walmart Supercenters, Books a Million, and News Center stores.

 

ARC Racecars continues to sponsor the reaction time award.  New for 2014 though is that you must display the ARC decal on both sides of the car in order to receive the money.  Eric will have the decals available in his trailer.  ARC also now offers either a bolt on or weld on header collector retention device which has been approved by NHRA to comply with the new rule.  For more information call ARC at 717-624-8181.

 

The banquet was held on 2/22/14.  A sincere thank you from Eric Kitchen to all who contributed to the very nice gift that he received at the banquet.  Todd has pictures posted on his web site from the banquet.  Visit www.tdspeedshotz.com to check them out.  Todd is also taking orders for calendars.  We ran out at the banquet as they were a big hit and more are needed.  Contact Todd through his web site to order yours.  The couple of photos below from the banquet are courtesy of Todd and Deb.

**  Some sponsors updates:

 

The bounty program:  Phil Marshall is one of our original sponsors.  In recognition of that, and to promote his newest division to Marshall Automotive, Gravely Lawn Tractor Sales and Service, the bounty program will undergo a name change.  The program will be called the Marshall Gravely ‘we keep you cutting’ Bonus.  New decals will be available at the track.  You are required to display them on both sides of the car to be eligible for the bonus.  Remember our long time sponsor for your automotive and now, mowing needs!  You may visit www.gravely.com to view company products, or www.philmarshallgravely.com to visit our sponsors site.  Check out the Custom Z section!

**  Al Matteucci:

 

 

Fellow racer Al Matteucci was seriously injured in a racing accident on November 2, 2008.  Al is in great spirits and wants to get back in the car.  However, he will have an extensive recovery period.  Al will need a very expensive wheelchair during his rehabilitation.  Our group is selling decals in an effort to offset the cost of the wheelchair.  The decal as pictured above is 4 ½ inches in diameter.  They are being sold for a suggested donation of $20 each, but any smaller or larger donation will be accepted in return for a decal.  All of this money goes directly to Al.  The decals will be available at the track through Paul Hillier or Eric Kitchen.  You may also send a check made payable to Al to Pro Stick Racing, 115 Orchard Drive, Boonsboro MD 21713.  Please state the number of decals wanted.

 

Al has moved in to his new home in Virginia.  The address is below, he is about twenty minutes away from the dragstrip in Manassas.  Al continues to make progress slowly.

PRO STICK CLASS RULES AND SAFETY INFORMATION

 

WARNING

 

Drag racing is hazardous.  Injury to participants or spectators is possible in all areas of the racetrack.  Promoters, organizers, etc. assume no liability for injuries.  You are attending the event at your own risk.  Your attendance acknowledges your acceptance of all risks associated with racing, and releases all other parties from any liability.

 

Always keep your speeds down in the pit area to 5 MPH or less.  There are spectators, small children, golf carts, etc. moving around all the time, and they are not always paying attention.

 

1.  The vehicle must use a transmission that is clutch operated off of the starting line.  A clutchless type transmission is also permitted (lenco type or similar).

 

2.  The class ET cut-off is 7.50 through 11.49 in the quarter mile.  (4.75 through 7.39 eighth mile)

 

RULE EXCEPTION for cars running 11.50 through 11.99 (7.40 through 7.65 1/8 mile).  These cars may run if you meet any one of the following criteria stated in 2a, 2b, or 2c.

 

2a)  If you traveled with the group from track to track running at least five events in 2007, and at least five events in 2008, you are grandfathered in and you may run.

 

2b)  If your car is a legal, currently registered NHRA or IHRA stock class car, you may run.

 

2c)  If your vehicle is a 1979 model year or older, you may run.

 

3.  The class will run on a five tenths bracket style full tree with handicap dial in.

 

4.  Absolutely no type of delay devices are permitted, electronic or otherwise.

 

5.  MSD type ignition and/or 2 step / 3 step is permitted.

 

6.  No street legal tires are permitted on the rear axle.

 

7.  No dragsters allowed.

 

8.  No front wheel drive vehicles allowed.

 

9.  No hydraulic throw-out bearings with release buttons allowed.

 

10.  Once in eliminations, you must drive the same car in all rounds.  This rule does not apply to a run-off of a rain-out of a previous event.  

 

11.  Courtesy staging is recommended.  Wait until both cars are pre-staged before either car stages.

 

12.  NHRA, IHRA, or other host track sanctioning body, and local rules apply.

 

13.  Absolutely no use of drugs or alcohol will be tolerated. 

 

14.  The use of nitrous oxide is NOT permitted by anyone.

 

15.  In appreciation of our sponsors, it is suggested that their decals be displayed on both sides of the car.

 

16.  During random elimination rounds, once you pull in to the staging lanes and have secured your spot, do not move your car in an effort to avoid running any particular opponent, or in an effort to run a particular opponent.

 

 

ADDITIONAL GENERAL INFORMATION

 

It is the responsibility of the driver to take their car to the pre-race tech. Inspection.  The host track officials will check driver credentials/safety equipment, and vehicle safety equipment as described in the NHRA/IHRA rulebook.  The track may disqualify any driver or vehicle for failure to meet these requirements.  All drivers must be a dues paying member of the sanctioning bodies of NHRA and IHRA.  The decision of host track officials regarding win/loss disputes, crossing of boundaries, or infractions of any rules (sanctioning body or local) is final.

 

Safety Suggestions For Your Own Good:

1.  If you are unfamiliar with a track, always look around before making any runs to get yourself familiar with the surroundings and operation of the track.  Pay special attention to the shut down area of the drag strip should any emergency type situation occur.

2.  Consider wearing a SFI neck collar no matter how fast your car is.

3.  Tighten down your seat AND shoulder belts before every run.  Loose belts will do you no good.  

 

Warren Frank is working a deal to get a group discount for anyone who is interested in purchasing a Hans device.  A sportsman model is available that you can easily put on yourself after you are in the car.  ARC also offers bolt on or weld on header collector retention devices as approved by NHRA.  Call Warren at 717-624-8181 for more information.   

 

Event Registration and Drivers Meeting:

The racer entry fee for all races will be $45 unless otherwise posted on this web site per event.  The entry fee is paid at the gate.  Anyone can run with the group as long as they meet the specific track rules, and our group rules.  Check the white board in Eric’s trailer for pertinent information pertaining to each event.  You can locate the trailer by looking for the Pro / Stick Racing flag at the yellow Chevelle H118.  Make sure Eric knows you are at the track for tracking of your points.  Let Eric know of breakage if you can not run.  There are no refunds for breakage if you pulled in to the staging lanes to attempt at least one time run.    

 

The drivers meeting is usually 15 minutes after first round of eliminations at Eric’s trailer, please plan accordingly.  First round of eliminations is always random pairings.  At the meeting, we will establish our race ladder sheet by drawing cards.  We use a bracket type ladder sheet as is used at local tracks. Lane choice may be discussed and determined by a coin flip.     

Bye Runs:  Of all the drivers appearing for first round of eliminations, the driver with the best reaction time during all time run sessions will receive the bye run if there is an odd number of cars.  Bye runs needed for all other rounds go to the winning driver having the best reaction time in the previous round.  Depending on specific track rules, bye run cars may or may not have to go down the track, but under full power is at the drivers option.  Bye run cars always go to the top of the ladder for the next round.  One bye run per car per event maximum.

 

Break Runs:  After the ladder has been established at the meeting, if a car cannot make a run, the competitor gets a single run and this does not count as a bye run. Single runs are conducted as stated in the sanctioning rulebook.

 

Win/Loss:  If you lose, you are out even if your competition breaks after you lost.  An example of an exception to this would be as stated in the sanctioning rulebook under disqualifications regarding crossing of boundaries.  Also, you or your crew must check your dial on the scoreboards before pre-staging.  Be proactive and be responsible, there have been cases where the track makes mistakes.  No reruns due to incorrect dial-ins. 

 

Rain:  Many races have a posted rain date on the schedule.  If no elimination rounds start, it can be expected that we will run the event on the posted rain date.  In the event of rain after eliminations start, a decision will be made depending on the particular situation.  Some example situations would include:

1.  If a few rounds have been completed, we will usually split the purse among the remaining drivers.

2.  If we are down to the last round or two, the purse may be split, or we may run the cars off at another date as decided on by the remaining drivers vote.  If we have a tied vote, the cars are to be run off at a later date. 

3.  If an early round starts and it rains before the round is complete, a decision will be made depending on the exact situation.  Winners so far during the round will receive their points. 

4.  If a late round starts and it rains before the round is complete, a decision will be made depending on the exact situation.  Winners so far during the round will receive their points.  Drivers still in will vote to make a decision.  If we have a tied vote, the cars are to be run off at a later date. 

 

Other:

Make sure Eric has your current address and car number.  Don’t use your engine size or the year of your car for your number.  That is not a unique idea and duplicate numbers show up in the computer.  Keep in mind that the track employees change.  They may not know how our program works.  Staging officials may need reminded that we are on a ladder, etc.  From time to time, tracks at the start of our first time trial will by mistake give us a Pro tree.  If that happens, do not go down the track.  Instead just back out, cut the engine off, inform the starter accordingly that we run on a full five tenths tree.  

 

Clarification on car counts:

The 64 maximum car count is no longer.  If there are over 64 cars, we will run two rounds of random before holding our meeting and going on a ladder.   

 

Points:

There is no charge to join the points tracking program.  The points program is just for fun and bragging rights.  It is a good idea to track your own points as a double check and let Eric know if issues.  Each driver receives 10 show-up points per event.  You will get the points for showing up with the intent of running with the group even if you broke before eliminations, or you do not qualify as described above.  Each driver also receives 10 points for each round won including bye runs or singles if your competition broke.  The reaction winner of each event will receive 5 points.  Additional points are awarded at each event as follows:

Ø     an extra 11 points to the winner

Ø     an extra 7 points to the runner-up

Ø     an extra 3 points for a semi-final loss

 

Tie breaker rule to determine the series champion (if necessary):

If at the end of the season there are multiple drivers tied in points for the championship, we will determine the champion from those tied drivers by naming the driver with the most event wins throughout the season.
