General Racing Rules
- Understand that racing is not a contact sport, but sometimes it's unavoidable. Taking matters into your own hands is not advised. If you cause another driver to lose a position(s) by wrecking into them, you must immediately give the track position back. Report all incidents to the race steward and the tape will be viewed. If a warning or penalty is warranted, then it will be levied in probation, grid spots or possibly disqualification from the series.
- Do not block, run your line, make the driver(s) behind work for the pass without a "swerve" technique. There is no "one move" rule, if you dart in front of another driver on purpose, you are blocking.
- Returning to the track after an off, be careful, make sure there are no other vehicles approaching. If you cause an accident by returning to the track in front of other drivers, then you will receive a stop & go pit penalty.
-Track limits, you must keep two tires on the racing surface at all times. Two tires on the yellow line and two tires in the grass is off track. If you pass outside the track limits, you must give that spot back.Race Settings

At a safe place on the track, before the final turn, drivers will pair up according to starting order. The pole sitter can call a green flag anywhere from the final turn exit, to the start/finish line, this will signal the start of the race. *This procedure will also allow us to shake out the laggers. You may be asked to start from the rear of the field if lag becomes an issue for others on the out lap. Thanks in advance for your cooperation on this matter.*Race Restarts
