    - The class will be an all-run field, based on minimum 1 qualifying run on an 1/4-mile format (only one NHRA tower person and driver will know their times; no 352 Shootout staff will know times. Driver will get half a time slip with only their information after each run). The minimum single pass will be run after the class returns from a 30-mile cruise. Vehicles MUST complete the run without breakage, being pushed or towed at ANY point before, during or after the run.
    - A 30-mile cruise will be done starting at the track to verify the "street ability" of each vehicle. Vehicles must complete the cruise to be eligible to qualify for eliminations. Vehicles will go directly to staging lanes from the cruise, and you will get cool down time. No changing of tires / refueling / working on the cars is permitted after the cruise / before the qualifying pass. After qualifying pass, vehicles can return to their pit area.
    - Any pass in eliminations faster than 10.00 can result in a loss for that competitor (will be determined by a single NHRA tower official). The 10.00 limit is being done to maintain a fair playing ground (352 Shootout staff will not have any knowledge of a vehicle’s time).
    - This class will be random paired for first round eliminations, based on call-outs and chip draw. A driver’s meeting will account for all drivers in the class, then 30 seconds are given to make a call-out. If a call-out is made and accepted, that pair becomes the first pair of the round, second call-out would be second pair out, etc. Once time has elapsed, chip draw determines remaining pairs and bye run (if needed). NO CALL OUTS WILL BE ACCEPTED / SWITCHING OF PAIRS ONCE CHIPS ARE DRAWN.
    - Round one winners go on a competition ladder for second round eliminations. The ladder position / pairing will be based on random drawing.
    - Any lane choice questions will be determined by coin flip.
    - Any entries that lose in competition may make additional runs at no charge after 2nd round of eliminations is complete as time / schedule allows.

If we get 33+ cars in round one, we’ll pay quarterfinal spots).
    - The class is based on individual indexes, based on 2 qualifying runs on an 1/8-mile format. All vehicles must make at least one pass to set personal index, otherwise we will default to an 8.50 index for that competitor.

The ladder would be based on round one winner’s reaction times (positive reaction times closest to .000 will be laddered #1, #2, etc. Any red lights go to the bottom of the ladder; the more negative the red light is, the further down it goes).
    - Any lane choice questions (remaining competitors in one lane / waiting the same lane, etc.) will be determined by coin flip in round one, ladder position determines lane choice for remaining rounds (higher position gets lane choice).
