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.
