There are fun runs, have a grudge match against your friend or fellow enthusiasts. No pressure and no trophies, just bragging rights at stake. The number of runs is unlimited as long as time allows. Note that 13.1 second and slower have to have a seatbelt and are allowed to have a passenger; 13.09 and faster are required to have a helmet and seatbelt, and passengers are not allowed.

To run True DOT, cars must have DOT-approved tires with full street rims. Power braking launches only, no trans brakes, no delay boxes, no electronics, no two-steps, or add-on shifting units. Must have full street steel body and trim. Must be street legal with full interior and working lights, mufflers encouraged, but not required. All NHRA rules apply.

And there’s the Show-N-Shine car show. In the promoter’s words, “This car show is meant to be fun for everyone, regardless of level of finish. We encourage everyone to participate. If you register your F-body, show up, and park, you're in the show. Judging will take place in four classes: stock, street, modified, and platinum—in all five generations of Camaro and four generations of Firebird. In addition, specific awards will be given for special recognition in performance, appearance, and build. You built yours in the garage with custom fabrication? Who knows, you may be selected for a special recognition award.”
