Race Format:
Qualifying in the morning. Quick 8 in EACH CLASS will run Heads-up Eliminations for $1,000 purse money.
EVERY ELSE in-class will be paired with the car closest to their ET, to run a Heads-up best 2-out-of-3 Shootout through Eliminations, for bragging rights.
Everyone makes heads-up passes all day against cars in the same class, nobody gets their doors blown off, everyone has fun, and the "slow" guys are just as important as the "fast" guys.

We had 200 vendors at the swap meet last month, WITH the Charlotte Auto Fair the same weekend... we're anticipating 200-250 vendors for The Gear Jam.
