Old- school racing.... as it was in the 50's, 60's and up to 1974.

(Also: If you have a 1975 to 1985 classic car, we have a class for that now too. The Directors are trying this class for this season.)

If you have a '74 or older vehicle without NOS or a delay box (see full rules), come see what we have to offer.

New class starting in 2020 for cars/trucks from 1975 to 1985, you can now join in with us as a ‘classic’ class. Gasoline engines only, fastest allowed times are 11.50 (¼ mi) [7.37 ⅛]. See rules page.

Don't have a car ?? ... join us and support us anyway.   --------------------------

There is a point system for our members. Even though fun is the number one rule, we do take competition as a fun portion of the race day. Our day ending campfires are usually well attended too! 

We do several newsletters each season with up to date information and reading material.


You must be a current member of ONDR to race with us. Cost is $30 annually. 

Cars must be 1974 and older, and our new classic class for 1975 to 1985 gasoline engines. ***SEE RULES FOR THE NEW CLASSIC CLASS.

You must sign in to play on every race day.

Your car must pass track technical inspections.

Electronic fuel injection allowed (only aftermarket carburetor style, self-contained) and must be on carbureted manifolds.  Also, electronic fuel injection is allowed for stack style injection and on roots style blowers. These are only allowed on older, originally carbureted engines.

NO DELAY BOXES ALLOWED. All delay boxes must be taken out of cars. No exception.


Data recorders allowed only FOR TIME TRIALS for safety purposes, but must be taken out for elimination rounds. Solenoid shifters & air shifters allowed in Front Engine Dragsters and Altereds’ only. These must be manually activated.

Slider clutch data monitoring allowed in time trials only.

Trans-brake and two step allowed in Comp class only. Trans-brake buttons allowed to be adjustable. Please be sure that all trans-brake wiring is completely traceable from switch to solenoid.

Air activated launch RPM limiter allowed in place of two step in Comp class only.

Any car in any class with a standard transmissions will be allowed to use a two-step for launching.

High speed retard allowed.

Steve Klein is technical advisor and will ensure all cars comply with rules regarding electronics. Cars may be disqualified should they have any of the above “performance enhancing devices”. REMEMBER THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE NOSTALGIA.

Number 1 Rule is still HAVE FUN! If you can’t get past this rule, ONDR is probably not the group for you.

**UPDATED FOR 2020**





Drivers must wear helmets. If car is quicker than 13:99 (¼)/9:00 (⅛) driver must have Snell 2015 helmet. Neck support collars strongly recommended. Cars will be inspected by track tech or ONDR and must have:

Proper seat belts, radiator overflow container with enough empty room to contain any coolant expansion, securely mounted batteries and be in generally safe condition with no loose parts that may fall off

Cars running slicks must have a driveshaft safety loop, 1/4"X 2" steel minimum. Cars running quicker than 11.50 require roll bar/cage and SFI seat harness. See current NHRA rule book for details.

Track Tech officials have final say in all questions of eligibility

Air Conditioning and Defrosters which use A/C must not be used on any pit road or the staging lanes and track This avoids water spills on pavement.

Runs will be made at the end of Open Class.

Cars will be given several chances each day in rotation with other classes Drivers will pay to enter the track front gate

A $15 tech card fee will be paid at the ONDR booth for each day of Fun Runs ONDR memberships are not required to do this.

     Race Format:

You have to be a member to race with us. Race fees will be $15.

This format will give all racers the opportunity for least one time trial.

The winners will go on to race other winners, the runner-ups (losers) will go on to race other losers.

We now get 3 to 5 random numbers between 1 and 20 from track staff members at the start of each day. The people who sign in at those numbers on the sheets are given spots at the top of the ladder. The remaining spots are filled in the order of the rest of names on the sheet as signed in. The lists then are held until the end of time trials so we can account for missed sign ins, wrong class etc. Then... the ladders are printed, hopefully correctly. Because we are using sportsman ladders it is very unlikely that 2 friends who signed in together would meet each other in the 1st round and more people may get a shot at a bye. Also, the double ladder never was used as you know. Anyone who loses in rounds 1, 2, and 3 is welcome to come back up in the OPEN class to continue racing for practice and fun, at no additional charge.

Points will stop after you have lost. 

Based on the new format, there will not be any consolation races, and you do not have to pay another $10 like you did with the consolation race. 

There is therefore no double dipping allowed, except at Shannonville.

We usually have 9 points races and count 6, and we have 6 non-points races as well.

Points will be based on your best 6 points events.

Points setup ... 

2 points for signing in,

2 points per round win,

1 point for class winner. 

TIE BREAKING PROCEDURES FOR FINAL POINTS: If there is a tie in points at the end of the last race of the season, it will be broken down as follows: 1. Most event win points, if still a tie, then 2. Most event runner up points, If still a tie, then 3. Most round points. If still a tie, then 4. Head to head competition. If still a tie, then 5. Furthest in competition at a single event. If still a tie, then 6. The awards will be split between those tied.
