Official Big Rim Pioneers
2024 RuleBook

The goals of Big Rim Pioneers are to provide racers with structured rules that enhance competition and safety. We accomplish this via our rulebook to guide our participating members, tracks, and spectators.

All drivers must be over the age of 18 with a valid state-issued driver license. 

our rules

All sanctioned Big Rim Pioneers events will be 1⁄4 mile heads up racing. Races will utilize a .400 pro tree for the start. Red lights will count, and crossing over the centerline is an automatic disqualification. The scoreboards WILL NOT display ET or MPH, but racers will receive a time slip for their run. Time slips will be cut in half; therefore, racers will only receive the printout for their performance, not their opponent. All racers will follow NHRA &IHRA safety specifications.

Helmets are mandatory for AL participants. The helmet must be a full-faced helmet meeting Snell M2015, SA2015 certification.
