Race Day Procedures:

  • Raceway will open at 8:00am.
  • Free practice from 8:00-9:45am. The track is closed at 9:45am.
  • Tech inspection starts at 9:45am and closes promptly at 10:00am.
  • The first race of the day will start at approximately 10:15am.
  • Soon after the first race is over, free practice for Cup class begins. Cup practice will be a minimum 45 minutes.
  • At the close of Cup practice, the track power is turned off and tech inspection begins.
  • Tech inspection for Cup class will last for ten (10) minutes.
  • Failure to submit your car for tech inspection by the announcement “tech is closed” will result in last lane choice.

Qualifying:

  • All mains will be seeded according to the fastest lap time achieved during a one (1) minute period. The back-up lap will be the tie breaker.
  • Qualifying order will be based on order of sign up. First to sign up last to qualify.

Race Procedure:

  • Every race will be run as a main. C main will run before the B main and the B main will run before the A main.
  • If there are 9 racers or less, a round robin will be run. 10 racers or more we will run equal mains.
  • There will be a one (1) minute warm-up for all mains
  • Each race will consist of 3 mins per lane with at least a 1 minute 45 sec lane change. (Lane change time may change from track to track)

Car Repair / Pitting:

  • You are allowed to work on your car at any point throughout the race.
  • You are NOT allowed to change your tires at any point thru out the race. Any tire change will result in an automatic 25 lap penalty.
  • If you repair your car under green flag conditions and upon returning to the track you (or your mechanic) make contact with another competitor’s car, you will receive a 10 lap penalty. The other driver will be able to look at his car and if repairs are needed that driver will have 3 minutes to make such repairs.

Marshaling:

  • You are responsible to marshal the main following your main. A main drivers marshal the C main; C main drivers marshal the B main; B main drivers marshal the A main.
  • If you do not marshal when it’s your turn it will result in a 10 lap penalty and forfeiting your lane choice position for the next race.
  • There will be equal number of marshals for all mains
  • If you leave prior to your marshaling turn and do not find a fill in marshal you will choose your lane last at the next event.

Track Calls:

  • Lane riders are track calls.
  • A car cannot be marshaled (E.g., in front of the driver’s panel, under the bridge or in the middle of the track)
  • A car landing on the floor near the track which is accessible by a marshal is NOT a track call. A car landing under the track not readily accessible by a marshal IS a track call.
  • Multiple cars off in a single corner being handled by a single marshal is NOT a track call.
  • Once the track is clear the race will resume.
  • If a driver is involved in a track car and they ask for the car to be passed to them, the track is considered clear and the race will resume without further delay.
  • If a driver or pit person ask for the car to do repairs to the car that resulted in a track call, that car must put back on the track at the same spot it was removed from. E.g., if you ask for your car and you were in section 11, once the repairs are done you have to go back on in section 11. If you do not go back on the track at the same spot it will result in a 10 lap penalty.
  • If you are involved in a track call incident, you may ask the marshal to fix/straighten your braid, push in body pins and pop out your body. Once the marshal is done with that it will then be considered a clear track.

Classification:

  • A driver’s finishing position will be a result of the sum of laps completed and the number of resultant sections. When a racer completes their segment of the race, they must inform the race director of their resultant section. If the racer does not inform the race director of their resultant section then the racer will be defaulted to section 0.
  • The number of laps made can only be a result of the lap counter. No lap corrections will be made for lane jumping (riders) or missed counting due to the cars braid. If a car jumps over the lap counter… call track and you can have your car placed back behind the lap counter.
  • The race director must check the lap counting system if there is a sustained problem. If a problem with the lap counter occurs, then the race director just reruns the current segment. If the counter fails to operate, the raceway must repair or provide an alternate lap counter.

Technical Specifications:

  • Maximum width for all classes (excluding body pins and tape) will be 3.269″ or 83mm
  • Maximum width or rear tires is .815″
  • The rubber portion of the tire that hits the track must be Black.

  • There is NO minimum rear clearance, but the spur gear must be level or higher than the bottom of the chassis. NO HANGING SPUR GEARS! This will be strictly enforced to protect the track surface.
  • Bodies must cover the entire chassis. This includes rear axle & guide flag.
