2019 will bring some important changes that are sure to ratchet up the cone-dodging thrills.

In addition to the normal classes We have added a new PRO-X class, each national event will now include two 8-car shootouts on Saturday late afternoon (the Shootout will be on Sundays at All American Get-Togethers).The two 8-car field will be comprised of the quickest PRO-X and PRO cars in one shootout and the quickest Street Machine, Hot Rod and Truck in the other shootout.

Two 8-Car Shootout:

The winner of the PRO-X/PRO shootout will be invited to Scottsdale for the Duel in the Desert. If the winner has already received an invite, it will go to the runner-up. If both have received or decline the invite, no one will be invited. The winner of the SM/TR/HR shootout will get an invite to Scottsdale for the Duel in the Desert. If the winner has already received an invite, it will go to the runner-up. If both have received or declined the invite, no one will be invited.

National event shootout points will be earned from the top finishers, 1st- 8 points, 2nd- 4 points, 3rd- 2 points and 4th- 1 point. Points will be added to your total from each shootout (except the Duel in the Desert and the Sponsor Shootout).
