You have 5 minutes to get on the track once your class is called. You must stay on the track until motioned off. If you are having trouble with your car and can not pack the track, you will start tailback and will not receive packing points.
  5. Line-ups will be made after the draw has closed. If you have not drawn, you will run tailback . If you want to run tailback, tell the officials at the draw. IF a car does not make the line-up, that row will move straight up. If 2 or more cars in the same line do not make the line-up (or wreck on the first lap), remaining cars will move straight forward.
  6. POINTS GO TO THE CAR NUMBER. Points are earned by positions in the heats and by taking the green in the "A" feature. If you miss 3 consecutive point nights, you lose all your accumulated points. Every night is a track point night - unless otherwise stated.
  7. All cars MUST qualify through heats or B features, for the "A" feature. The first heat determines the inside row and the second heat determines the outside row. "B" feature race transfers line up at the back of the "A". If you break in hot laps and are able to get car repaired by the "A", you will be allowed to run tailback IF there are less than 24 cars in the "A" Feature.
  8. Race line-ups will be posted on the board, by the pit gate. It is the driver's responsibility to know their position. All races will be aligned in the pit area. Drivers will be called to lineup in the designated area. All cars are to be in the correct line up and ready to start the race before entering the track. If you miss the lineup, you run tailback. No hot laps between races.
  9. When the front row of cars reaches the start line in turn 4, the start will be official upon the flagman signaling with the green flag. The pole car will set the pace, which shall be consistent with track conditions and as required to keep the field in NOSE TO TAIL FORMATION. If you are out of line, the yellow flag will wave and you will be put on the rear. The race is officially over when the checkered flag is thrown. The only flag to follow the white is the checkered, unless the track is completely blocked and/or in case of fire. In this case, the race will be paid from the last completed lap. If the leader has taken the white flag and has a clear path to the checkered, the checkered will be thrown. If a yellow is thrown, then cars line up (minus the cars in the yellow) and a green/white/checkered will follow. If a yellow has to be thrown during this restart, the race will be over and paid from the last completed lap (minus the cars in the yellow/red).
  10. The pole car should start the race at a reasonable speed. Do not slow the pace as to 'bog' down the that cars behind. Flagman may signal car to pick up speed. If this signal is ignored, flagman may put that car on the rear. This includes single file restarts. It the front rows responsibility to set an even pace so that the race is started evenly. If this cannot be done in 2 attempts, one or both cars will go to the rear.
  11. On a restart, all cars return to their original starting position EXCEPT the cars that the yellow/red was thrown for. Those cars GO TO THE REAR. On the first lap, all cars must come through the green in order for the lap to be complete, except for those cars for which the yellow/red was thrown. After that, when the first 2 cars come through the green and a yellow/red is thrown, the lap is complete. The rest of the lap will be filled in from the last completed lap, with exception to the cars involved in the yellow/red. WE DO NOT RACE TO THE YELLOW OR RED FLAG. The scorers count laps from the press box, using the flag stand as the finish line.
  12. A RED FLAG MEANS STOP ~ THERE IS A DANGEROUS SITUATION ON THE TRACK. DO NOT DRIVE AROUND TO BE CLOSE TO YOUR PIT CREW. IF YOU IGNORE THE RED FLAG, YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED. A green and red light on at the same time means it is an "open" red and your pit crew is allowed on the track. If only the red is on, it is a "closed" red and NO ONE is allowed on the track.****A yellow and red light on together is the signal for a complete restart in double file order. On single file restarts, a cone will be used on the back straight. Stay to the right of the cone. If you run over the cord or cone, you will be put to the rear. The race will be started when the leader reaches the cone (you may pick up speed coming out of turn 2). Cars need to be in nose to tail formation and if you pass cars before you reach the cone, a yellow will be thrown and you will go to the rear or you will be penalized at the end of the race for "jumping" cars. A cone is also placed on the front straight for cars to get single file. If you do not get in single file formation and/or go under the cone, you will be put to the rear of the field. Lapped cars will be put to the rear of the field. Cars on the lead lap that cause a yellow/red will be aligned in front of lapped cars. A lapped car is defined as a car that is not on the same lap as the lead cars. Scoring is based on how many laps you have completed. If 2 cars are down the same amount of laps, but 1 car takes the checkered and the other doesn't, the car that took the checkered will be paid ahead of the car that didn't.
