All teams get some sort of handicapping points to start the event and then each lap completed is worth points. The team with the most points at the end of the race gets the perpetual Cup (which now has some totally incorrect name on it since I have a need to change the title of this thing every year). The handicapping makes winning the race a possibility for every team entered.
EVERYONE on the team must use the same TEAM Name. Whatever your Team name is for the day - and this can be whatever you want it to be - it has to be the same for all team members.
Please do not use the same team name as another team. In other words, if there are 4 teams coming from your club please make sure that all four teams have a different name for the event. This can be as simple as adding a "1" "2" or "3" to the end of each team's name or getting all creative and stuff.
Costumes are encouraged.
Really good ones are rewarded.
Past results show this actually works like we planned!!
(which is sort of amazing since I pulled the whole thing outta the back end of a tauntaun...and you thought they smelled bad on the outside.)

If you still don't think you can win it or if you are more concerned about drinking some brews than going hard then dress up and get yourselves the costume prize.
Or just drink.
Its a kick ass way to start the season, the short hard lap efforts are superb race training, and its almost too much fun. Almost.
Except for the puking at the end of the lap bit.
