Qualifying:

  • Drivers will draw for a qualifying position in the heat in the pit tower at sign-in (please note, cars are not allowed on the speedway prior to the driver signing-in!).
  • There will be two sets of qualifying heats (subject to time limits); each qualifying heat will be 10 laps.  The first set of heats will be run according to the draw positions; the second set of heats will be lined up by reversing the starting order of each race in the first set of heats, with any non-finishing cars behind the finishers
  • In order to qualify, a driver MUST take a green flag in at least one of the heat races
  • Provisional cars may be added at the promoter’s discretion.
  • Any driver who has not signed-in and drawn for a starting position prior to 5pm will start at the back of an assigned heat race for both sets of heats.
  • Total heat points will determine the heads up start for the 75 lap feature race

 

75-lap Feature Race

  • The feature race of the event will be 75 laps.  Cars must use the same 4 tires for all qualifying and feature races.  Damaged tires may be submitted to tech officials for replacement during the event.
  • Starting line-up for the 75-lap Feature Race will be determined based on the points earned through the qualifying heats (heads-up start).  In the case of tied points, the car from the earlier heats will get the position (car in heat one will go ahead of car from heat two and heat three) followed by the car from the subsequent heat.  This formula will be used to determine the top 24 cars.

 

 

 

  • Any provisional positions to be added will be done behind those qualified cars.
  • The use of a scanner or Race-ceiver by the driver to monitor the official track frequency (UHF 451.7125) to aid in on-track communication is MANDATORY.  Any driver failing to respond to line-up or other instructions delivered via the one-way radio will be black-flagged and placed at the back of the field.
  • Caution flags will NOT be counted in the 75 lap total.  Cars leaving the race track during caution laps will NOT be considered to have lost any laps PROVIDED they are back on the speedway before the green flag.  Cars leaving the track will forfeit track position and rejoin the field at the back.
  • Drivers leaving the track under green flag conditions will be allowed to rejoin the field as permitted by the corner 4 flagman, or under caution.  Drivers must approach the turn 4 gate at a rate of speed that allows them to stop safely if required to do so, or face a penalty.
  • The Race Director reserves the right to stop the field in the case of an extended caution period.
  • There is no guaranteed or mandatory count of caution laps.  Racing will resume at the starter’s discretion following a caution flag as quickly as possible in order not to delay the show unnecessarily.  Drivers staying on the track are expected to maintain their positions in single file unless directed to move via the one-way radio.
  • Lapped cars will be put to the back of the field when the caution comes out.
  • If a caution comes out, cars that have crossed the start-finish line will be scored accordingly.  For any cars that have not crossed the start-finish line, the LAST COMPLETED GREEN FLAG LAP will set the field.  If a car decides to pit during a caution period, they will remain on the lead lap provided they return to the race before the green flag, but will forfeit track position and rejoin the field at the back of the lead lap cars.
  • All cars must take a green flag in the feature race to be eligible for points and/or money.
  • Any car deemed by the starter to be unable to maintain racing speed and in so doing create a hazard on the track will be black-flagged and sent to the pit.
