Contest Info:

Come and join the Texas Outlaws for three days of slalom fun in Houston (Hockley) Texas April March 23rd 24th & 25th 2018
Friday March 23rd: Giant Slalom & Downhill Speed Trap
Saturday March 24th: Hybrid Slalom & Classic Tight Slalom
Sunday March 25th: Tight Slalom
All three days will be held at the Hockley Soap Box Derby Hill.
The soapbox derby hill is closed to traffic, has lights, restrooms and seating for spectators. The Asphalt on a scale of 1-10 is a 9, (9 due to some wear this past years) the hill is a quarter mile long and drops at 1st a 6% then a 4% grade speeds can reach 30-35 MPH due to an almost constant tail wind.

: Giant Slalom will be single lane jam style A Class B & C class will be chosen by the timer. Racers may go off the big ramp the small ramp or no ramp. There will be one lower start that may be chosen by the racer but a 30 second penalty will be added to their time Cone penalty .20 per cone 15% cone DQ limit, all racers get two runs.

Bragging rights downhill, no Prize money no ISSA points. Fastest through the trap (88 feet you time is converted to speed) wins. The racer can go down the BAR the regular ramp or push you can pump or tuck or push all the way before the trap but both feet must be on the board while you go through the trap
Hybrid slalom will be 1st qualifying and then head to head racing. Cone penalty .10 per cone 15% cone DQ limit; we will be using Ricky Byrd style start ramps and Trakmate timer with false start detection. If you false start it will be a DQ for that run.

Tight slalom will run 1st A class from the top with Ricky Byrd Style start ramps a class will be the top 16 only. Qualifying then head to head ladder style racing. Note if you do not qualify for the A class then the racer will be allowed to race in the B/C race. But their times will be reset.
B& C class will run down farther on the hill, it will be run single lane jam style; all racers will get two runs. Note there will be two lanes fr0m the A class race already set up, so we will both lanes but still it will be run jam style.

Please note: There will be A, B and C classes for Pros and AMís Masters, Womanís and Juniors this year, only your time will seat you nothing else, and all points will be to where you place after head to head racing within the entire class. So, this means that if there are for example, 8 racers in the A class and you come in 1st in the B class you will be in ninth place for the whole class and so on down the line. If we have enough Masterís & Juniors or woman to make a division (declared the magic number is 4) then they will be eligible to win both their class as well as they place they earn over all.

Entry Fee is 80$ includes all three days of racing and lunch on Saturday and Sunday. : Lodging info to come.
