2019 KCORRA Mini Stock Rules

The following rules will apply the Mini Stock class. All rules are intended to meet the safety requirements to afford a safe, competitive, and fun event.  It is understood that many vehicles may feature modifications that fall outside the KCORRA rules.  It is the responsibility of the driver to contact KCORRA prior to competition for approval. 

Safety Equipment

Helmet-Full face helmet required. SA2010 or better required for events at Lucas Oil Speedway.

Eye Protection-Shatter proof goggles or full face shield required.                                                                                                     

Clothing-One-piece fire suits and gloves with a minimum rating of 3.2A/5 are required. Motocross type race gear will NOT be allowed as it is extremely flammable. Full coverage footwear required.

Head and Neck Restraint-Neck collar is required for all KCORRA events, but a head and neck restraint, such as D-Cell, R3 Hans, Hybrid or other restraint certified to SFI 38.1, is highly recommended. Head and neck restraints will be required for events at Lucas Oil Speedway.

Fire Extinguisher- Each pit area must have a portable UL approved 5+ lb. ABC-class dry chemical type or equivalent fire extinguisher. Fire extinguisher must have a gauge, be fully charged, and be easily accessible. This is in addition to race vehicle mounted extinguishers.

No passengers allowed   


All driver will be required to have an onboard radio capable of monitoring the KCORRA channel.  This will be used by KCORRA officials to communicate with drivers on the track. Radios do not need to be able to transmit and drivers should not transmit on the channel. We will have radios available to rent at the track for $10 per event or for sale at $25.  These will be preprogrammed with the KCORRA channel.  Raceceiver is the preferred receiver.  They are designed specifically for this purpose and can be purchased new for $100.  There are several lower priced alternatives such as the Baofeng UV-5R which can be found for under $30.  Nascar style scanners that can be programmed to one frequency will also work.

KCORRA main driver channel 454.0000 and must be monitored by all driver’s while in staging or on track.  Backup channel will be 460.0000.  Spotters may also monitor KCORRA channels and communicate to their driver.

Order of events

There will be one open practice session.  Practice time will be posted at sign in.  Practice is open to all classes.  Track officials will control track entry, number of machines on track, and possibly lap count to ensure safety and track access for all competitors. 

There will be a mandatory driver’s meeting between practice and the start of heat races.  This usually takes place at sign-in and times will be posted.

For most events, we will be using a two heat races format. Competitors will draw a starting number at sign-in.  This number determines your starting order for your first heat race.  The starting order for your second heat race will the invert of your first heats starting position.  Your results from both heat races will be averaged and determine your starting position for the main event.  The higher you finish in your heat races, the better your starting position for the main.  In the event that two racers have identical heat results, the tie will be broken based upon the starting number drawn at sign in.  Heat races will be separated per class.  Number of heat races and lap count will be determined by number of entries.  Starting order, heat race time, lap count, and class order will be posted at track entry.  It is the driver’s responsibility to be on time for their race. 

Starting order for the main event will be posted once all heat races have been completed.  Classes may be combined for main event, but will be scored within their respective classes.  Starting order, race time, lap count, and class order will be posted at track entry.  It is the driver’s responsibility to on time for their race.

Driver must compete in a safe manner and vehicles must maintain a safe, operable condition. Driver’s may be asked to withdraw from an event an official determines that there is a risk to their safety, another racer’s safety, or the safety of a spectator.

Some event may require a change to order of events, race format, or starting format.  In these event, the changes will be explained in driver’s meeting.

A minimum of five entries/participants are required per class. In the event of less than 5 entries, those driver’s may be moved to the next most appropriate class. Based upon the discretion of KCORRA officials, classes may be combined or further subdivided.

KCORRA seeks to grow off-road racing in the Kansas City area and f you have any other type of vehicle and would like to participate in our event(s), please contact us at KCORRA@usa.com or on our Facebook page.  Be sure to contact us prior to the event, as not all our locations can accommodate all types of vehicles.
