Vehicle inspections are performed.   Vehicles will be inspected after pulling  through the gate to the inspection area. If a vehicle fails inspection, the driver will have the opportunity to correct the problem and will be allowed to be re-inspected. NO vehicles may be removed from the trailer without passing inspection. Once a vehicle passes inspection it will be given a visible indication that it has passed and be allowed to be unloaded.


After inspection the driver must complete the registration form.  A limited number of vehicles will be allowed to race in each class and this will be determined by the Race Officials based on the number of total vehicles registered in all classes.


Driver will be allowed two laps, as a practice session. This is meant to familiarize the drivers with the track and track conditions. It is not meant to be a race or driven in an aggressive manner.  Track staff will help monitor the number of laps being driven as well as watching for aggressive driving.


All heats and pole positions will be announced.   Drivers are responsible for verifying they are in the correct heat. Classes and heats will be called to the staging area by our announcer and our staging director will send the cars to the starting area where they will be set into their starting locations by the track staff.


The starting personnel will point at each vehicle and wait for a "thumbs up" from each driver. Once all
drivers are ready, the starter will raise the green flag to start the race.




All vehicles will race each other for the specified amount of laps. Aggressive Dangerous Driving will not be allowed.  If a driver is identified as driving aggressively the track staff will point at the driver with a rolled or furrowed flag. This is considered a warning. If the aggressive driving continues, the track staff will wave a black flag at the vehicle and the driver is disqualified for that heat and must pull off the track.


Track staff will use a yellow flag to signify that a there is an issue ahead of them on the course. Drivers
may continue but must pass through the area in a slow and safe manner.


Should the race need to stop due to a rollover, accident, mechanical breakdown, fire, etc., a red flag will be
waved by track staff.   At that point the racing Is stopped and drivers are expected to stay where they are until track officials tell them where they need to go.


At the start of the final lap of racing, finish line track staff will display a while flag signifying you are now
on your last lap of that race.


A checkered flag will be used as drivers cross the finish line at the end of the race.
