a reflection on, the driver. Conduct detrimental to the sport will
not be tolerated, and all participants are expected to conduct
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,

all persons other than officials without express permission of the
director of competition. Violation of this rule will subject the car

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

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

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

the right to approve or disapprove any driver, regardless of age,

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

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

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

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
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.

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.
