Numbers are allocated on a
first-come, first-served basis based on the date/time stamp of the email
request. Occasionally there may be duplicate car number at an
event when a team races outside their home region. This shouldn't be a
problem most of the time, but if this situation does arise, the local team gets
to keep its number and the traveling team will need to cover up one of their
digits. There will be no duplicate numbers within a region.
2013, there is no fee for
reserving your permanent number. For 2014 and beyond, there may be a small
annual fee to keep your number, but we'll deal with that next year.
THE FINE PRINT.... Here are the
2013 Rules in more detail....
Car Numbers: One, two and three digit numbers are
One- and two-digit numbers are HIGHLY PREFERRED TO ENSURE THAT THEY
PROPERLY FIT ON THE NUMBER PANEL - 1 through and including 99. No cars may use
"0" or "00" before their one- or two-digit car number.
Numbers must be shown on both doors and the roof. Open cars (convertibles
/ no roof) must have a car number on the hood.
ALL CARS SHALL USE CHUMPCAR SUPPLIED NUMBER BACKGROUND DECALS
Three (3) 14" x 24" backgrounds are required per car
One background shall be applied to the roof (or, as required, hood) of
each car; numbers on the roof panel must be aimed towards the passenger side of
the car. The number panel may be angled up to 30 degrees from center.
One background shall be applied to the front driver and passenger door of
No other number backgrounds are approved or allowed.
Number backgrounds can be ordered and are available EXCLUSIVELY from
www.VRO.com in the US, and from www.streetrateparts.com in Canada.
ChumpCar will have a limited number of panels available at most events.
ALL CARS SHALL USE BLACK NUMBERS (self-supplied)
Numbers shall be 12.0" tall. (That's TWELVE INCHES. Not 11 or 13.)
Fonts shall be a minimum of 1.5" wide (brush stroke) and a maximum of 2.5"
wide; one- and two-digit numbers can use wider numbers... three-digit numbers
will have to use 1.5" thick numbers or they will not fit on the panel.
Therefore, ChumpCar PREFERS teams to reserve one- or two-digit numbers.
All numbers shall use ARIAL or Helvetica fonts. No exceptions. Stylized
fonts are NOT allowed.
ChumpCar will NOT supply teams their car numbers at any event.
SPACING OF NUMBERS
Teams with regional permanent numbers are advised to leave enough room
before or after their number to add a simple "1" (or "11") using black duct or
electrical tape in case their number has been taken and they are competing
out-of-region. All numbers MUST fit within the standard number background.
NUMBER ILLUMINATION for all night racing events:
All cars participating in any event where headlights are required shall
have both door number panels illuminated using an approved ChumpCar lighting
system. (Two lights required per car.) Instructions for mounting lights is
included in the shipping package.
ChumpCar lighting systems are available EXCLUSIVELY from www.VRO.com in
the US, and from www.streetrateparts.com in Canada.
ChumpCar will have a limited number of lighting systems available at most
Other than numbers, no other decals, paint, tape or themed item (of
any type) are allowed on the ChumpCar number background decal.
