About Festival of Speed, 2017.

In past events, the car that takes Beast of the East normally walks away with almost half of the awards. This year, in an effort to “spread the wealth” so more people have a shot at those amazing Jason Schmuck awards, we will be trying something new.


Introducing the Beast Coast “Pro” Tournament.

  • 16 cars
  • Single Elimination
  • Strict Pacing rules (cars must be within 1 car length at start)
  • Start speed is the same
  • Start distance is the same
  • Entry into the Pro tournament will disqualify you from the other awards, BUT qualify you for the Beast of the East and the $1000 cash prize.
  • Being “eliminated” from the tournament will not disqualify you from racing the rest of the day. You will be allowed to continue running, just with no eligibility for any of the awards. Your MPH will be tracked.
  • Seeding will be chosen at random. Cars will need to disclose their horsepower prior to the event. The start and pacing section of the race will be ultra important. This Pro tournament/ranking is aimed at seasoned racers with high horsepower cars so, as such you will be expected to race as professionals. This means that more emphasis will be placed on nailing the start every-time otherwise there will be consequences (more details on that later).

Open Roll Racing

  • All races will be started from a 45 MPH +5/-5 roll side by side for 1,500 FT.
