Thanks jeiB. 

Since this thread is getting attention I will like to ask if someone has some advice for designing dog clutches. I am kind of lost as to what loads it sees. I know of bearing and shear but what about contact forces, etc.

First iteration gearbox & dog clutches, be careful bud, don't go too far over your head. They are relatively simple but I think you are asking for trouble for a first iteration.

Why do you think that? I know it is risky but having a reverse requires a dog clutch and the reverse proved to be really helpful in our last car

Its just another component that can fail, create a lot of headaches and isn't required to go around the track. Maybe I'm just far too conservative on virgin components, but I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed either. Dog clutches and shifting mechanisms aren't the most complicated things in the world so I'm sure you can figure it out but just think about what percentage of the time reverse gets used and if its worth the headache and cost.
