Bracket Classes


All below classes are a “Run What You Brung” class, ran within RCDRL bracket race rules: By far the most popular form of drag racing is a handicapped form of competition known as bracket racing. In this form of racing, two vehicles of varying performance, can race on a potentially even basis. The anticipated elapsed times for each vehicle are compared, and the slower car receives a head start equal to the difference of the two. With this system, virtually any two vehicles can be paired in a competitive drag race. Full/Sportsman Tree
