APBA Boat Race

KZOK 102.5 Cup

Lets make 2012 the greatest racing the TnR fans have ever seen!! 2012 will showcase the same great racing classes as we did in 2011, only with more boats. We are in most of our backyards, so lets get out the boats!!

YOU MUST have a class of a minimum of 6 legal boats to get time on the water. If your class has less, then we will try to put them in a class closest to their size. So, make sure your class has 6 boats!!

In our efforts to make sure we have enough pit space for the racers, we are encouraging PRE REGISTRATION. Sanction will be available below in late April, and we want you to send in your registrations ASAP, so we can ensure we have enough pit space. You don’t even have to send any money with it!! Help us make sure it is a great event for both fan and racer – register early!!

There are changes:

  • You must ensure that your crew has closed footware – this is EVERYONE that plans on entering the hot pits (APBA Rule 3.3).
  • Drivers/Owners are responsible to ensure that their crew & friends/family are have proper credentials to be in the hot pit area.  You will not be asked twice to remove an un-credentialed person.  You will also have to exit the pits and re-enter twice each day to ensure that all persons in the hot pit area have proper credentials.  TASTIN’ N RACIN’ WILL HAVE A ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY FOR THIS RULE!
  • Tastin’ n Racin’ is also REQUIRING that your pit pass is worn on your WRIST (TnR Rule #1).   This is also a new insurance requirement.
  • There is also NO ONE under 14 years allowed in the hot pits (Scorers Handbook Pg 5) and new insurance rule.  ANY TEAM bringing anyone under 14 yrs. into the hot pits will be immediately disqualified and reported to the APBA.
  • NO DOGS in the hot pits  NO EXCEPTIONS.  DON’T ASK!! (TnR Rule #2) – ANY TEAM bringing a pet into the hot pits will have to take it immediately out.  LEAVE PETS AT HOME!!!
  • There is no smoking in or AROUND the pits (per King County Fire Marshall)
  • TnR will be administering Breath Analyzer tests on Saturday and Sunday morning for all drivers (Rule 1.2.1 General Safety Rule)
  • APBA Rule 24.1.1, states that crew must be in uniform- See rulebook for specifics

Please be aware that we will be strictly adhering  to all the racing rules.   We are in a world of new insurance rules and we have a zero tolerance for the above rules.
