2-Day Event Qualifying

For the NCQMA and HQMA, 2 day shows, qualifying will be conducted a little different…

Qualifying for 2 day events in Huntsville and North Carolina will be held on the first event day, following one round of practice. The drivers first fastest lap will be used for the first day’s event and the second fastest lap will be used for the second day’s event.

Fuel to be purchased at Chevron on Saturday morning…

The track will NOT supply fuel. You need to purchase 87 Octane from the Chevron that is on Castleberry Road (directly up the hill from the track). Remember to drain your tank completely and use fuel purchased the morning of the race.

A sample from the Chevron station will be taken each race morning and cars that are subjected to post-race Tech Inspection may be checked for proper gas, at the discretion of the Tech Director, using NGQMA’s fuel testing device. If post-race testing indicates improper fuel and/or additives, it will result in a race disqualification.
