SECTION TWO -- RACE PROCEDURES

1.         GREEN FLAG:  The start of the race commences when the green flag waves. At that       time, no alternatives will be added.  You must take the green flag to receive your money       in any race. No cars may exit the track any time during a green flag.  You must pull into
the infield only. (Any car/driver that exits the track under a competition green flag, will be suspended for the remainder of the night and will forfeit all competition points.)

2.         YELLOW FLAG:  If at any time you stop on the track or cause a yellow, you will be sent to the rear of the scored lap group.  Once you have caused TWO yellow or red flags, or any combination of the two, in the same event, you will be black-flagged.  If you leave the track and then return, you will be sent to the rear of the scored lap group.  Any car penalized for rough driving will be charged with a yellow.  A yellow will not be thrown for any car safely sitting off the track-racing surface. (Inside the tires)

3.         RED FLAG:  Any car causing a red flag will be sent to the rear of the scored lap group. In the event of a red flag, if you leave the track or change a tire, you will be sent to the rear of the scored lap group.  You may work on your car on the track during an open red flag. No work will be permitted on closed reds.  If you pass the red, you will be sent to the rear of the scored lap group.

(If a yellow or red flag must be thrown after the checkered flag is taken, the race is officially over. Those cars not crossing the finish line before the red/yellow will be scored in the position they were in on the last green flag lap. Any car charged with a yellow or red flag that had not taken the checkered will be scored by flag procedure.)

4.         BLACK FLAG:  If the black flag is waved at you, proceed to the infield immediately. You will not be permitted to reenter the race for that event.  If the black flag is pointed at you, you have been given a warning.  Any car that is deemed unsafe will be black-flagged. (Flat tire, loose sheet metal or bar, etc.)  Any driver that intentionally causes a yellow flag or delays the race, will be black flagged.

5.         STARTS AND RESTARTS: All starts will be double file and will receive the green flag at the stripe/line in turn 4.  A complete lap is scored when the race leader crosses the start/finish line. Restarts will constitute a single line formation so that race officials can correct the line-up as given to them by the scorers.  The leader of the race will start all restarts between the orange stripe/line and the flag stand on the front stretch.  Race line-ups will be posted in advance in which you will be responsible to know which races you will be starting in and your starting position.
Failure of any driver to get into your designated position or to allow another driver into their designated position as directed by track officials will result in a black flag. If you are not on the track in any event by the given amount of time, you will be sent to the tail.  If the one lap signal has been given, you are not allowed to enter the track. 

6.         JUMPING ON STARTS & RESTARTS:  The front row will bring the field to the stripe/line at a moderate speed side by side, nose to tail.  The field must stay side by side until the leaders start at the turn 4 stripe/line.  Cars out of position will be penalized two positions.  If front row starters do not produce a good start, they will be moved back 1 row/position. 
If you pass before the leaders reach the turn 4 starting stripe/line, you will be penalized two positions for every car passed.  On restarts (nose to tail), if you pass another car before the flag stand or are out of single file position, you will be penalized two positions for every car passed or penalized two positions for being out of single file order.

7.         LAPPED CARS:  Lapped cars will be positioned at the rear of the field by lap group in all races on restarts.

8.         STOPPING ON THE TRACK:  Any driver who stops on the track to protest will be disqualified. 

 

9.         SWITCHING CARS:  If a qualified driver does not race in their own car, the driver may     elect to switch to another participating car, but must start at the rear of the field for that     event.  No switching of cars will be permitted during a race.

10.        PACE CAR:  Any driver who passes the pace vehicle on the track during race activity will be fined $50.00 and sent to the rear of the scored lap group.  Any driver that passes the leaders once they are staged will be sent to the rear of the scored lap group.

11.        ENTERING THE TRACK:  When entering the track for all events (Hot Laps, Heats, B Main, or A Main) all vehicles (race cars) will remain at idle speed until you are directed by a track official to take off or to get in line. Failure to do so will result in offending car being placed on the tail of that event or directed to the infield.

12.        ENTERING THE PITS:  All cars entering the pits must do so at idle speed.  Any cars moving at high rates of speed or in an unsafe manner in the pit area will be subject to a penalty for misconduct at the discretion of track officials.

13.        DAMAGE TO CARS:  If you are involved in an accident and you have a part that is          about to come off, we will attempt to remove the part or adjust your sheet metal or tubing   so you can continue to race.  If we cannot remove or adjust the part within a very short         period of time and without the assistance of tools or excessive force, you will be             required to leave the track.

14.        FINISHES:  The top finisher in the A-Main event must stop on the front stretch at the                               conclusion of the race for inspection and awards. If you do not, you will be fined $50.00                              and forfeit your award and points.

15.        No re-entry on heat races and B-mains.

16.        Any car that leaves the track and is scored a lap down will not be allowed to re-enter the                          race.

17.        No additional cars may enter a race after the initial green flag has been taken.

18.        All cars must run in their posted event.  (No switching heat races or B-mains.)

19.        Any race that is scored halfway or beyond and is cancelled due to weather, act of nature, or any situation beyond the control of track officials, etc. will be counted as a complete race.

20.        Claim area for all divisions is on the front stretch of the track.

21.        Pushoff - You are allowed only one pushoff per race.  If a second is required, you will be                                    sent to the rear of the scored lap group.  Exception - Red Flag.
