Racing Etiquette:

  1. Under no circumstance is anyone to argue with or threaten the corner flaggers or pit staff. All decisions which are made by the scorer and head official (head flagger) are final. a. Note: If you have a problem with a decision which was made on the track, kindly ask the pit staff to have either the head official or scorer speak with them after the heat races or feature races have completed. At no point is anyone allowed to approach the head official during racing times. This will result in automatic ejection of the property for the remainder of the day’s events. Multiple offenses will result in a suspension to be determined by the track manager. (Drivers may not use a suspension race as one of their points drops). b. Questions regarding running order, events, line-up, etc. may be relayed from pit staff or corner flagger to tower at any time. c. If you choose to approach any official, including the head official and scorer, in any manner other than in a calm fashion you will be asked to leave the track until further notice. This rule applies to all drivers, parents, crew-members, spectators, etc. There is a zero tolerance policy with this rule. Constructive criticism delivered with an appropriate tact is always welcome.
  2. Fighting and excessive foul language is prohibited. Violators will be given a one-week suspension (drivers may not use a suspension race as one of their points drops). Repeat offenders will be suspended for the remainder of the year.
  3. Restart after one lap complete: a. Line up in a single file line in the order of last lap completed.
  4. Three yellow rule: a. If you are involved in three yellow flag cautions, you will be blacked flagged. This rule will be at the scorer/ head official’s discretion.
  5. All heat starts will be double file. Feature races will be double file (changes may be made at tracks discretion). If at any point where the initial green flag is halted 2 consecutive times, due to cautions, then the start will convert to single file. a. If there is 4 consecutive failed starts, due to cautions, then the race will be deemed over at the tracks discretion (finish order will be the current starting order).
  6. All starts for all divisions will be out of turn 4 (within the starting box. NO EXCEPTIONS.). If at any time the front row drivers fire early 2 consecutive times, they will be moved back 2 spots (fire will be determined by head flagger and turn 4 flagger).
  7. If at any point where your racing engine stalls while on the racing surface, the track crew will assist in re-starting the engine. Allowance of 3 occurrences, after that the driver will be asked to leave the racing surface for the remainder of said race. Rule is at track official’s and scorer’s discretion.
  8. Top 3-5 karts in all classes must weigh in after each race (at tracks discretion). If you fail to weigh in after your race you will be disqualified from that race and lose any points/ award.
  9. After the feature the classes to be teched will be directed to the tech area, failure to go directly to tech will result in disqualification. a. First refusal to tech will result in immediate disqualification of the night’s events with loss of points and awards. The next event which the driver attends will be an automatic tech night (no matter the finishing position). b. Second refusal to tech is an automatic disqualification from the night’s events with loss of points and awards. This will also result in a 2 week suspension for the driver/team. c. Third refusal to tech will result in automatic disqualification from the night’s events with loss of points and awards. This will also result in suspension from racing events for the remainder of the year for driver/ team.
  10. If division which you race is getting teched and you fail to meet driver/kart weight requirements, the tech officials hold the right to tech your engine in the same manner as the remainder of the division. (Even with a passed engine tech you will still lose your points and awards based on failure to meet weight requirements).
  11. At the tracks discretion the winning driver from each division will be required to enter “pill draw” tech. Winner will randomly draw a “pill” which will determine the post-race inspection which will be required. (Tech options may include, but are not limited to, various engine specification checks, fuel checks, chassis safety checks, etc.) However in Senior Lites and Heavies if top 3 all agree to NO Tech then it is ok to Not Tech.
  12. Driving in the pit area is expressly prohibited. The only area which drivers can operate their kart is exiting the grid, on track, and driving up to (but not on) the scales
  13. If at any point during a race the driver leaves the racing surface and enters the pit area, you will not be allowed to re-enter the racing surface.
  14. Time Limits: All races will be timed. 6 and 8 lap heat races will be limited to ten minutes. 10 Lap Features will be no longer than 15 minutes and 15 lap features will be no longer than 20 minutes.
  15. If after signing in at pit board you decide to change kart bodies- IE- your kart number an official must be notified immediately. You may not be scored properly if we are not notified.

At this point neither party are allowed to leave the tech area until both the engines of the protested and the protester are turned over to the tech official. Both engines will be stored in a sealed case by the tech official until all racing has completed, when then both parties will accompany the tech official to the tech barn (in the main pits) for engine teardown.
  3. Refusal to accept the protest is an automatic disqualification and will count as a tech refusal (see rule 9 in the racing Etiquette section)
  4. You may only protest a driver within your same division
  5. Potential outcomes upon completion of engine teardown: a. Protested & protestor’s engines are both deemed legal = Protested driver is awarded the $250 bounty. b. Protestor’s engine deemed legal/ Protested engine deemed illegal = disqualification for protested driver (loss of points/ awards for the day) and driver will be subject to mandatory tech at the following event (no matter the finishing position). Protestor receives $250 bounty back. c. Protested engine deemed legal/ protestor’s engine deemed illegal = protested driver is awarded $250 bounty. Protestor is disqualified (loss of points/awards) and protestor driver will be subject to mandatory tech at the following event (no matter the finishing position). d. Both engines are deemed illegal = both drivers are disqualified (loss of points/awards) and both drivers will be subject to mandatory tech at the following event (no matter the finishing position). $250 bounty will be added into year end point fund for all classes.
