Mini Street Division

 

One of the primary objectives of the dB Drag Racing Association is to stimulate interest in auto sound and auto sound competition. Experience has shown that once an individual starts competing in dB Drag Racing, his or her interest in the sport will grow rapidly. The key to growth is to involve first time competitors initially so that they can experience the fun and excitement that dB Drag Racing has to offer.

 

In 2002, the dBDRA is pleased to announce the formation of a new division of competition that is specifically designed for “first time” or “entry level” contestants. This new division is called the Mini Street Division. The Mini Street Division is an optional division of competition that we feel should be included at every dB Drag Racing contest. The Mini Street Division is set up in such a way as to permit the show promoter the flexibility necessary to ensure success in his or her local market.

 

The guidelines for including the Mini Street Division as part of a regular dB Drag Racing contest are as follows….

 

 

 

 

 

 

The show promoter is encouraged to use one or more of the following restrictions to determine eligibility for competing in the Mini Street Division.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The rules for the Mini Street Division are the same as those used for the Street Division with the following exceptions.

 

 

 

EXAMPLES

 

The two examples below represent just a few of the ways in which the Mini Street Division can be offered. Please keep in mind that the show promoter has GREAT discretion over the number of Mini Street classes AND the restrictions placed upon entry into those classes. For example, a promoter might have none, 1, 2, 3 or more Mini Street classes. The classes might be divided by cone area, power, cost, woofer size, or any combination of these items. The show promoter should select the criteria best suited for his or her particular market.
