6.2 All runs will be measured by official measuring tape/string/instrument, measured from the side of the hole at the point at which it intersects the official scoring device placed across the hole by the pit judge.

6.4 In the event of a tie on distance, the fastest running time to achieve the furthest distance run in your class will be deemed the winner. YOU, the driver, must let the pit official know your run is over in order to stop the clock. The instruction to stop the time must come from the driver themself and not a team member.

If only one machine can make the re-run, under that machine’s own power, the driver of that machine will be deemed the winner. In the event that both machines are broken and unable to make a re-run, the result will be declared a tie, and the points and prize monies will be split between the competitors.
6.8 All runs will be measured and recorded in the official results on both distance and time.
