1. PACE TRUCK: Do not pass the pace truck unless directed by a track official. If you pass the pace truck you will be moved back two positions. Line up behind the pace truck as safely and quickly as possible.
2. PUSH OFF: You are allowed one push-off per race, which constitutes your car being under its own power. If you stop on the track and need assistance to restart or hold up the race, you must go to the tail. Remain under idle until all track officials are off race track. You will be told on raceceivers when to line up.
3. GREEN FLAG: When the green flag waves, that constitutes the start of the race and no alternates will be added. Alternates in the A-Mains need to be in the staging area. If all cars in the A-Main make the call and take the green flag, you will be told to return to the pit area. You must take the green flag in the A-Main to receive any feature money and feature points.
4. STARTING A RACE: The entire field must complete one lap, excluding the car(s) causing the yellow or red. Car(s) involved in the yellow or red must go to the tail.
5. YELLOW FLAG: If you are considered part of a yellow or red flag situation you must go to the tail. If you are involved in any combination of two yellows or reds in any race, you are disqualified from that race. Once the yellow flag has been thrown and all cars are accounted for, and you spin on the racetrack, and cannot restart under your own power you must go to the tail, but you will not be charged with the yellow flag. If a yellow flag is thrown for debris on the race track, the yellow flag will be for debris only. If you spin and the yellow is brought out for you, you must go to the tail even if your car continued under power. If a yellow flag appears on the first lap, the line-up will be crisscrossed minus the car(s) involved. All cars involved in the yellow flag will then restart at the rear of the field. If you go to the pit area, you will be lined up behind the car(s) involved in the yellow or red. If idling around under yellow and you stop and do not need any assistance restarting and do not hold up race you get your spot back. If stopped by an official and you do not hold up the race you get your spot back. If you need to stop for a safety reason you must stop by an official. No working on your car on the racetrack or you will be disqualified. If you lose a muffler during race, you are disqualified from that race.

No drivers or crew members allowed on the racetrack or that car can be disqualified. Drivers do not get out of your car unless for emergency situation. If the accident appears to be a long delay, an open red may be allowed. Officials will have you pushed to the turn 3 & 4 area of the racetrack depending on location of accident. You may then do anything to your car except change a tire. If a tire is changed you must go to the tail. If you need to change a spacer, please notify an official. If at any time you go to the pit area, you must restart on the tail. Once the accident has been cleaned up, please have your crew members leave the racetrack as soon as possible. You must not hold up restart or you must go to the tail. If a red flag appears on the first lap the line-up will be crisscrossed minus the car(s) involved.
7. ORIGINAL STARTS: Front row will bring the field side by side to the orange tire at a moderate pace. If the start is called back, the front row car(s) that brought out the yellow will be given one warning. If the same car(s) repeat the offense that car(s) will be moved back to row 2. If any other cars move out of line to get a run or pass a car before the green flag has been waved, the yellow may come out and that car will be moved back one row or that car will be penalized two positions per car passed on the next yellow or red flag, or at the end of the race. Once the green flag is waved the race is on for everyone.
8. RESTARTS: Form a single file line so officials can get you in proper running order. CARS WILL BE SCORED UP UNTIL THE YELLOW OR RED FLAG IS THROWN, MUST HAVE THE LEADER AND ONE MORE CAR CROSS THE FINISH LINE FOR THAT LAP TO COUNT. ANY CARS CROSSING THE START FINISH LINE AFTER THAT WILL BE LINED UP FROM THE PREVIOUSLY COMPLETED GREEN FLAG LAP. All restarts are on the frontstretch. The race leader must accelerate and restart the race from the original starting tire. If the leader accelerates before the orange tire and gains an advantage, the yellow will come out and the leader will receive one warning. If the leader restarts too early again, the yellow will come out and the leader will be penalized two positions. All cars must stay single file through the cone on the front stretch. No gaps will be allowed as to make a run. If you pass a car, drive under the cone or hit the cone you will be penalized two positions on the next yellow or red or at the end of the race.
9. LAPPED CARS: Lapped cars will be placed at the tail of the field behind the last car on the lead lap. In the A-Main each car will receive one “Lucky Dog” and be put back on the lead lap one time if you are not down two or more laps. If you cause a yellow or red and are one lap down you do not get your lap back, however if another yellow or red comes out for someone else and you are still only one lap down, you will get your lap back.
10. WORKING ON YOUR CAR IN PIT AREA: If at any time you go to the pit area after the initial green flag, you may re-enter the race under a yellow or red flag condition provided: A) You are on the lead lap, or B) You are one lap down and have not used your “Lucky Dog”. You must be ready to go when the one lap signal is given. You may be pushed at that time and fall in at your correct position. We will not wait on anyone. No grace laps are given except for a flat tire during the first half of the A-Main only. You will be given two laps once your car reaches the work area. All work must be done in the work area. If you go to your pit you are finished for that race. Adding fuel in the work area is not allowed, subject to disqualification.
11. CHECKERED FLAG/FINISH: The race is complete once the flagman has displayed the checkered flag and the leader crosses the finish line. If the yellow or red is displayed after the leader crosses the line under checkered, the remainder of the finishing order will be based on the previous completed lap, less any car(s) involved in the yellow or red.
12. SCALES: Top 3 finishers in A-Main must go to scales. 410 Sprints: 1,425lbs, UMP Late Models: 2,350lbs, 305 Sprints: 1,500lbs. All with driver in car. Failure to do so or meet required minimum weight will result in disqualification.
13. BLACK FLAG: If the black flag is waved at you, go to the pits immediately. If pointed at you, you have been given a warning.
14. SWITCHING CARS: Once a driver and car come on the racetrack for their heat race they have created a “Team”. If one of the “Team” members cannot compete in the next scheduled race for the “Team” and the driver wants to drive a different car not qualified for the A Main the driver will be required to tag the tail of the next main event for that division (C or B-Main(s)), even if the driver has qualified for a higher main event. The driver and car must stay as a team in order to run the A Main. The driver must run the Heat race and/or B-Main they are assigned. If a driver is late in coming to the track and can’t start their assigned heat, they will be placed on the tail of the B-Main. If there is no B-Main they will NOT be allowed to run in the A-Main. A car may only run in one heat and/or one B-Main. The car and driver “Team” rule also applies to the A-Main alternate(s).
15. STOPPING ON THE RACE TRACK: If you need to stop on the racetrack for safety reason you must stop by an official. Any driver stopping on the racetrack to protest will be disqualified.
