CLASS RULES & INFO
The Women’s Class is a Choose Your Own Dial In, bracket style class. This means the fastest car does not always win. You can race a stock daily driver, or a fully modded 7 second race car! It does not matter if you have never raced before, or you’re a seasoned racer, there is a spot for you with us- and a chance to win money, prizes and points!
Each driver MUST attend the SCT Driver's Meeting and the additional Women's meeting directly afterwards. It is your responsibility to be there on time for each meeting. The SCT meeting times are posted on the Street Car Takeover event pages on FB, the Women’s meeting is directly afterwards. They are typically held Saturday mornings. We will go over the entire class, any questions, and we will collect phone numbers to start a group chat. When it our time to be called to the lanes you will receive a text message telling you when and where to go. This makes it far easier to know what to do because a lot of tracks we attend have horrible PA systems and you can’t hear anything in the pits.

MUST PASS TRACK TECH
Full face helmet required at a minimum. Safety gear requirements based on car.
The class is a $100 Buy In - $1000 Pot – 80/20 Split – There will be a small number of classes that have different payouts, this may be because a company has sponsored an additional cash bonus etc. Unless we (Women & Wheels) have specifically posted and advertised a change in pot, the Women’s Class payout will always be $1000: 80/20.
***The Women's Class at Street Car Braggin' Rights in May of 2023 has an increased pot!***
You must purchase a tech card also. You must pre-register for the Street Car Takeover events, tech cards will not be sold day of. (You can purchase a class entry day-of but you must have at least pre-purchased a tech card)
All you need to race with us is a Tech Card & a Class entry!
You can pre-register at TheFoat.com, search ‘Street Car Takeover’ and select the event you will be attending, and you will find tech cards for $50 and class entries for the Women’s Class that already include a tech card ($150) If you want to wait until day of to register for the class, just purchase a tech card only.
INDEX – You will choose your own index/dial in. If you are unsure what your car will run - it's okay! We aim to run 1 to 2 qualifying passes for each event, if time and weather is a factor, you may run 1 qualifying pass and another during TnT. You will have the opportunity to make passes before eliminations. *UPDATED AS OF 4/25/23 - YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR DIAL IN BETWEEN ROUNDS*
The class will go off a .400 Pro Tree, this is a very easy tree to learn and pick up. If you are racing for the first time ever with us, we recommend you watch YouTube videos on this tree to get familiar with it. But don’t worry- our entire crew will be on the ground with you to walk you through whatever you need. We will help you stage and go over the light again in our private driver’s meeting, so there is no questions or confusion.
The class is ‘First To The Finish Without Breaking Out’ – This means if you line up next to a 15 second car, and you are a 10 second car; the 15.0 car will get a 5.0 second head start. The slower car leaves first and it is first to the finish, BUT you can’t go quicker than your dial in.
If you dial in a 10.5, and you run a 10.3, that is breaking out. Sometimes you may line up with a car that is very similar to you on dial in, so you will likely takeoff very close to each other.
*UPDATED AS OF 4/25/23 - YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR DIAL IN BETWEEN ROUNDS*
First round pairing will be decidied by a ladder based on qualifying if racer count is over 12. If less, chip draw. Every round after will always be chip draw.
1st Round Buy Backs – We will continue to offer 1st round buybacks! If you lose the 1st round, you have the ability to buy back in. Lose in the 2nd round or further and you are out for good.
We reserve the right to refuse a car entry if we feel like it does not fit the spirit of the class.
The winner of the class will receive a Trophy, a custom RaceBabe box full of drag racing themed swag, a pink hat from our sponsor 'The Shop', as well as being invited onto W&W owner & founder's podcast 'Ladies Night at the Track' (Find it on IG or FB at @TrackChatPod)
