How the Klash Field will be Set:
Qualifying: The fastest 20 qualifiers will be locked into the race.
Position 21: Last Chance Winner: The Last Chance race winner will start
21st in the Kalamazoo Klash.
Position 22: Money in the Bank 125 Provisional: The highest finishing
car in Wednesday July 30th’s “Money in the Bank 125” at Berlin Raceway
that does not make the field through qualifying and finishes on the lead
lap of the Last Chance race will get a provisional starting spot in the
Klash. If no cars meet this requirement the position will go to the
second place finisher in the last chance race.
Position 23: Kalamazoo Speedway Point Provisional: The highest driver in
current Kalamazoo Speedway Outlaw Super Late Model point standings that
finishes on the lead lap of the Last Chance without winning and does not
get the “Money in the Bank 125” provisional will get the final starting
position. If no drivers are eligible for this provisional the race will
run with 22 cars.
Inversion:The inversion for the first segment of the Klash will be eight
plus the roll of two dice. Essentially this will make the inversion
between ten and twenty. The inversion for the Last Chance race will be
the roll of one dice, making the inversion between one and six.
Tire Rules for the three segment 150 lap Klash:All teams will be allowed
a total of 8 race tires for qualifying & racing of all three segments.
You will qualify on 4 of your race tires (scuffed or stickers) and then
it’s your call as to when you are going to put on your remaining 4 tires
for the final two segments.
Segment 1 (50 Laps):At the end of the first segment the leader will roll
two dice to determine the inversion for the second segment. The maximum
inversion will be the number of cars on the lead lap. There will be a
ten minute break before Segment 2 and all cars will need to be in the
tech line when the ten minute clock expires. The winner of Segment 1
will collect $500 from WZUU 92.5.
Segment 2 (50 Laps):At the end of the second segment the leader will
roll one dice to determine the inversion for the final segment. The
maximum inversion will be the number of cars on the lead lap. There will
be a ten minute break before the final segment and all cars will need to
be in the tech line when the ten minute clock expires. The winner of
Segment 2 will collect $500 from WZUU 92.5
Segment 3 (50 Laps):This will be the final segment and the entirety of
the purse will be paid out based on the finishing positions in this
Simplified Klash Race Format/Rules
Due to the large expected car counts, all cars will be parked in the
infield and all trucks and trailers will be removed from the infield.
Bring your easy-ups, tarps and war wagons….no trucks or trailers will be
left in the infield.
The qualifying order will be the determined by the speeds in the final
Kalamazoo Klash practice session. The slowest car in the final practice
will qualify first, while the fastest car in the final practice session
will qualify last. If a car does not compete in the final practice
session it will be the first car to qualify. If multiple cars do not
compete in the final practice their order will be determined by a blind
draw. If any car does not qualify in the position they are scheduled to,
they will lose one lap of qualifying. If there is a tie in qualifying to
the thousandth of a second, the tie breaker will be the car higher in
the current Kalamazoo Speedway Outlaw Super Late Model point standings.
If the tie is still not broken the next tie breaker will be the faster
car from the final practice session. The final tie breaker will be a
coin flip (2 drivers) or blind draw (3 or more drivers).
Sweet Manufacturing will present the fast qualifier and the race winner
each with a $100 product certificate.
The top running eligible lapped car at each caution (and at each segment
break) will receive the “Lucky Dog Free Pass”. A car is not eligible to
receive the “Lucky Dog Free Pass” when, in judgment of the officials, 1)
The car caused the caution 2) The car was in the pit area when the
caution came out or 3) The car has been penalized with a discretionary
call. In the case of a discretionary penalty, it will be made known to
the competitor, at the time the discretionary penalty is imposed, that
the car will not be eligible to receive the “Lucky Dog Free Pass” to
make up the penalized lap(s). Transferring the “Lucky Dog Free Pass”
will only occur when the first eligible car becomes ineligible to
receive the “Lucky Dog Free Pass” because of a discretionary penalty,
because the car pitted under the caution or because the first eligible
car is not in competition at the time the yellow flag is displayed. Then
the “Lucky Dog Free Pass” will be transferred to the next eligible car.
There will not be a lucky dog on a “false start”.
150 laps – three segments of 50 laps, 50 laps and 50 laps with ten
minute breaks between the segments.
All Double File restarts, even in the Last Chance race. The leader will
choose their lane and the second place car will fill the other position
on the front row. Starting with 3rd place on back odd numbered positions
will line up on the inside and even numbered positions will line up on
the outside. In the event there is a car being sent to the tail, a lucky
dog and a car coming out of the pits, they will be lined up in that
