Q: How does the hop $$ break down?
A: DP - $500
SP - $300
Luxury - $200 (SP or DP)

Q: What are the hop rules?
A: "All entrants will be tech'd by Scrape by the Lake staff, and must be driven into pit under its OWN power. All vehicles must hop on 13 or 14 inch wheels. Batteries (max 16) must have proper disconnect/kill switch and secure tie-downs. Only switch man plus trunk man allowed in pit. Once your hop starts, you will be allowed 60 seconds to hit your highest mark. Any cheating (ie sand, lead, pushing on trunk, etc) will result in disqualification from event."

Q: I have a DP caddy - can I enter DP too?
A: All cars hop in SP or DP...we then take the highest luxury hop from either class and award them the Luxury $$...so if your lac hits the highest in DP, you'll win $500 DP + $200 Luxury = $700
