2013 GENERAL RULES APPLICABLE TO ALL SERIES EXCEPT

WHERE EXEMPTED IN SERIES-SPECIFIC RULES

 

Interpretation and implementation of these rules will be the responsibility of track officials. Any situation not specifically covered in these rules will be acted upon by the official or officials in charge as they deem proper at the time, and that decision will be final and binding on all participants. These rules may be changed, modified, or deleted at any time for any reason or for no reason by track officials. These rules shall not be construed in any manner as to create a contract by and between the competitors and the race track.

 

THE RULES AND REGULATIONS SET FORTH HEREIN ARE INTENDED TO PROVIDE FOR THE ORDERLY CONDUCT OF RACING EVENTS AND TO ESTABLISH MINIMUM ACCEPTABLE REQUIREMENTS FOR SUCH EVENTS. THE RULES SHALL GOVERN THE CONDITION OF ALL EVENTS, AND BY PARTICIPATION IN THESE EVENTS ALL PARTICIPANTS ARE DEEMED TO HAVE COMPLIED WITH THESE RULES. NO EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OF SAFETY SHALL RESULT FROM PUBLICATIONS INTENDED AS A GUIDE FOR THE CONDUCT OF THE SPORT AND THESE RULES ARE IN NO WAY A GUARANTEE AGAINST INJURY OR DEATH TO A PARTICIPANT, SPECTATOR, OR OFFICIAL.

NO EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED WARRANTY SHALL RESULT FROM SUCH ALTERATION OF SPECIFICATIONS.

 

ALL PARTICIPANTS SHOULD KEEP THE FOLLOWING IN MIND: IF THE RULES DON'T SAY YOU CAN DO IT, YOU CAN'T. ASK FIRST.

 

ANY MODIFICATION TO ANY PART IS SUBJECT TO APPROVAL BY CORBIN SPEEDWAY OFFICIALS.

 

IMPORTANT: Any division or series not listed in Corbin Speedway’s rules shall be considered a “visiting” series and rules regarding their technical specifications will be governed by their own club or sanctioning organization.

 

GENERAL RULES

A. CONDUCT

         1.       The track Is privately owned. Your right to participate can be revoked at any time for violation of any rule.

         2.       The conduct of the driver, crew members and car owner is the responsibility of, and a reflection on, the driver. Conduct detrimental to the sport will not be tolerated, and all participants are expected to conduct themselves accordingly.

         3.       Drivers will not be permitted to stop on the track to question the flagman or any track official. Any driver doing so will be subject to disqualification for the remainder of the program.

         4.       The flagstand, infield, scoring tower, and announcer's position are OFF LIMITS to all persons other than officials without express permission of the director of competition. Violation of this rule will subject the car represented by the guilty party to disqualification.

         5.       Fighting will not be tolerated. All incidents will be referred to the appropriate law enforcement agency and appropriate penalties will be assessed by officials.

         6.       Any unlawful activity will be reported to appropriate law enforcement agency and appropriate penalties will be assessed by track officials.

         7.       No alcoholic beverages, drugs, or weapons will be permitted on speedway property.

         8.       Anyone entering the pits must purchase a pit pass and sign a release to enter pit area. Employees, vendors, and those with season pit passes or complimentary pit passes must also sign release. Purchase of a pit pass permits a driver to participate in only one (1) series or division for that event. Participation in any other series or division will require purchase of a separate pit pass at the regular rate of $25 for each additional series or division.

         9.       All drivers must register their full name, social security number, address, phone number, car number and class with track officials before racing. Each driver must complete and execute a W-9 form and biographical form each season.

B. GENERAL

         1.       Drivers MUST be registered.

         2.       $25 will be the regular pit pass fee.

         3.       All participants must adhere to track insurance regulations. Drivers in all series or divisions are subject to approval by track officials.

         4.       Drivers MUST be 14 years of age to compete in any division or series with the exception of Mini-Cup. Anyone under 18 years of age competing in any series or division must have parental consent form on file with the track. Drivers seven (7) years of age through 14 may compete in Mini-Cup subject to track approval. The track management reserves the right to approve or disapprove any driver, regardless of age, depending on skill level demonstrated.

         5.       If a series or division has a season sponsor or a contingency sponsor, participating cars must display a decal in the designated position if provided by the sponsor or track.

         6.       A single car may not compete in more than one series or division per night.

         7.       Only race team service vehicles will be permitted in the pit area without express permission from the director of competition.

         8.       The number of cars starting the feature race in any series or division will be subject to the track's discretion. A consolation race may be scheduled to fill the final spots in a feature race. Track management reserves the right to line up the start of any race in any manner or fashion to promote competition.

         9.       After a car has been qualified it cannot be requalified for any reason. Any driver changes must be reported to track officials, and the change will result in that car starting from the rear in the consolation race. If there is no consolation race, the car will start at the rear of the feature. Failure to report driver changes will subject the car to disqualification for the night, with other penalties possible at the discretion of track management.

       10.       Rough driving will not be tolerated, and will be dealt with severely, with possible penalties to include forfeiture of prize monies and points due the competitor, and other point penalties if officials deem it applicable. Repeated offenses may result in disqualification for an indefinite period, including the remainder of the season if deemed suitable by officials. Cars may be sent to the rear of the field even though neither car has spun or has brought out the caution flag. Track officials’ judgment will prevail in all cases.

       11.       In the event of a caution flag period, cars will NOT race back to the caution flag. If the white flag has been displayed to the leader, cars will race back to the checkered at the discretion of the flagman. Deliberate spinning or otherwise damaging of a competitor on the final lap in such situations will result in the offending car being placed at the rear of the lead lap cars in the final finishing order and the offended car being awarded the position in which it was placed prior to the incident. Officials' judgment will prevail in such cases.

       12.       For restarts following a caution flag, the field will be lined up in double file according to the running order of the last green flag lap. The car at fault in the incident causing the caution flag will be sent to the rear of the feld for the restart, while the offended car will be allowed to retake his or her position. Officials’ decisions will prevail in regard to incidents in which a competitor is deliberately spun or damaged by another, or in which a car takes action to avoid the incident. Cars which have been lapped will be placed at the rear of the restart field according to their running position.

       13.       The pole sitter will determine the pace of the start at the discretion and direction of the starter/flagman, and the lead car on restarts will determine the pace of the restart. The starter/flagman will have discretion over this area and the authority to direct the pole sitter if necessary.

       14.       All starts and restarts will take place on display of the green flag by the flagman, regardless of the cars’ positions on the track. No passing will be allowed on any start or restart until the green flag has been displayed. The green flag will be displayed for starts and restarts when the field reaches the the line located at the exit of Turn 4. “Jumping” a start may result in the offending car being sent to the rear of the field.

       15.       The red flag means STOP. Drivers must slow down as quickly as safely possible and stop. The driver must remain in the car under red flag conditions. In conditions of extreme heat, drivers may be given verbal permission by track officials to exit the car. However, no adjustments or repairs may be made to the car with hands, tools, or by any other means. Drivers who exit their car without express permission from track officials, and cars on which any work is performed, will be subject to immediate disqualification from that race, and if disqualified will receive no money or points for that particular race. Any car which passes the scene of the accident which caused the red flag condition after having already passed under the red flag will be disqualified for the remainder of that particular race. In the event of an accident too close to the start/finish line to allow cars to stop in time, officials’ judgment as to intent will apply.

       16.       Cars experiencing flat tires must go to the infield or pit area immediately.

       17.       Cars with an issue under the caution flag will be allowed to pit, and will be given a maximum of three (3) laps under the caution to correct the problem and return to the track. Placement in the field will be at officials’ discretion.

       18.       Any cars leaving the track and entering the pit area must maintain a safe speed.  Speeding in the pit area WILL NOT be tolerated. Offenders are subject to disqualification from that day's events and possible permanent disqualification from future events.

       19.       When the layover flag is displayed, the car to which it is displayed must move to the outside of the track unless other instructions are given to drivers prior to the event.  If the layover flag or the black flag is ignored consistently, the car to which it is displayed will not be credited with remaining laps.

       20.       Any race may be declared officially complete at officials' discretion if the halfway point has been reached, or if an inordinate time delay is expected prior to the track being ready for competition.

       21.       Cars which do not report to the lineup on time will go to the rear if the field has started to move, unless ordered to take their original starting position by track officials.

       22.       The driver is responsible for having the car in line for practice, qualifications and racing. If a car can not be qualified with its series, it will start in the rear of the feature or, if a consolation race is necessary, at the rear of the consolation race.

       23.       All weight will be determined by track scales.

       24.       No traction control devices of any kind will be permitted in any series.\

       25.       No use of nitrous oxide or any other performance-enhancing fuel additives will be permitted.

       26.       Track management reserves the right to allow or deny any car or any driver from participating.

       27.       Track management reserves the right to have any car inspected at any time. Regular technical inspection will take place before and after races. Any car found illegal will be disqualified for the night and will forfeit all money and points won for the night. The top three finishing cars in any feature race must report to the tech area in the infield for inspection. Failure to do so, or to report for inspection when directed to do so will be considered an admission of guilt and will result in disqualification.
