2013 GENERAL DIRT TRACK RULES
The rules and/or regulations set forth herein are designed to provide for the orderly conduct of racing events and to establish minimum acceptable requirements for such events. These rules shall govern the condition of all events, and by participating in these events, all participants are deemed to have complied with these rules. NO EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OF SAFETY SHALL RESULT FROM PUBLICATIONS OF OR COMPLIANCE WITH THESE RULES AND/OR REGULATIONS. They are intended as a guide for the conduct of the sport and are in no way a guarantee against injury or death to a participant, spectator, or official.
The race director shall be empowered to permit reasonable and appropriate deviation from any of the specifications herein or impose any further restrictions that in his opinion do not alter the minimum acceptable requirements. NO EXPESSED OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OF SAFETY SHALL RESULT FROM SUCH ALTERATION OF SPECIFICATIONS.
Any interpretation or deviation of these rules is left to the discretion of the officials. THEIR DECISION IS FINAL.
All drivers must be signed-in 45 minutes before the posted race time, failure to do so will result in that driver starting on the rear of a designated heat. The driver’s registration and payout booth is located at the trailer next to the pit concession. The order of events is posted on the line-up board which is located at the trailer next to the pit concession. Know when you race. Be in staging area, in line and ready to race when your race is called to go on the racetrack or you will be placed on the rear of that race. We will not wait on you. Be in your starting spot and ready to race when you come on the track. There will be no “jumping” of heats.
The staging area is located behind turns 3 and 4. All cars will enter the track in turn 4. The track exit is located in turn 1. The hot pit area is located behind the wall in turn 1 and ALL cars will re-enter the track in turn 1. If you go to the hot pit area for any reason you will restart on the rear. If you go to your pit you are done for that race.
NO SPEEDING ALLOWED IN THE PITS! – This includes 4-wheelers, racecars and all types of pit vehicles. No children allowed to drive 4-wheelers in the pits. No 4-wheelers allowed in use 30 minutes after the last race.
NO HOT LAPS AFTER RACES START OR AFTER LAST RACE.
NO PIT CREW PERSONNEL ALLOWED ON TRACK AT ANYTIME!
Track officials will assist you in any way they can. No pit crew personnel will be allowed in the tech inspection area unless otherwise instructed by the tech-man or you may be disqualified.
The flagman will start all races, no cone, no line. Stay nose to tail, when you see the green flag or the green light you are racing. Leaders must maintain a reasonable pace until we go green. Pay attention to the lights, if the lights are out you will be getting the green.
We race green/yellow. During heat races, if you cause one (1) unassisted yellow you are done for that race.
When the yellow flag comes out get single file. Stay single file until the track official splits the field for the re-start. If you do not get single file you will be put to the rear for that re-start.
Yellow flag re-starts will be double file with the leader being the only car on the front row. When the cars are in the correct order the officials will direct the leader out front by themselves and split the rest of the field to the inside or outside rows. The 2nd place car has the option of inside or outside lane on re-starts. After excessive restarts, we may elect to restart single file.
Line-ups after a red or yellow flag will be according to the last completed scored lap with the cars involved in the red or yellow flag lined-up on the rear. In obvious cases where a car stops to avoid being involved in the incident, they will get their spot back. Otherwise all of the involved cars will go to the rear on the restart.
Lapped cars will maintain their position for re-starts but may go to the rear if they elect to do so.
CONTACT WITH ANY CAR AFTER THE RED, YELLOW OR CHECKERED FLAG HAS BEEN DISPLAYED WILL RESULT IN A DISQUALIFICATION- NO POINTS AND NO MONEY! THIS IS THE MINIMUM PENALTY. WHEN A DRIVER IS BLACK FLAGGED OR IF A CAR IS DISQUALIFIED IN THE TECH AREA, THE DRIVER WILL LOSE ALL POSITION POINTS AND MONEY FOR THAT NIGHT.
FIGHTING IN THE PITS WILL RESULT IN THE LOSS OF POINTS AND MONEY FOR THAT NIGHT. IF YOU GO TO ANOTHER DRIVERS PIT AND A FIGHT STARTS YOU WILL BE THE ONE PENALIZED. DRIVERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR PIT PERSONNEL. THE GREENWOOD POLICE DEPARTMENT WILL HANDLE ALL FIGHTS ACCORDING TO GREENWOOD LAWS.
Drivers competing in multiple classes should notify a track official as soon as line-ups are posted. The car for the next race should be in the “hot pit” area. This will ensure that the driver is given adequate time to switch cars and join the line-up of the next race.
The driver is qualified. If you change cars between races you will go to the rear of the next race. You cannot change cars after a race has started. If you borrow a car from a fellow driver, that driver cannot drive that car again that night. You must notify a track official before changing cars and it must be done prior to cars being called to staging area.
All drivers in all classes must wear either a 1 piece or 2 piece SFI certified fire-suit.
Numbers on all cars must be able to be read by scorers. Make them large and legible. Numbers must be on both sides of the car and on roof. Numbers must be at least 18 inches tall. If your number cannot be read you may not be scored correctly. Please make sure that your numbers are clean, visible and easy to read.
The tech area is located at the registration trailer by the pit concession. The number of cars going to tech will be posted on the line-up for that race. If you go to your pits before you go to tech you will be disqualified from that race. If you are not sure where you finished go to tech anyway. All protest will be made in the tech area.
Any driver in the same race on the led lap may protest another car immediately after the “A” feature in the tech area only. Driver may not protest another driver finishing in a position behind them and may not protest the same driver more than once per calendar year. The protest fee is $250.oo cash per component. $50.00 goes to the track, if car is legal that car will get $200.00. If the car is illegal the protester gets $200.00 back. If parts are found to be illegal, or if a driver refuses to submit to protest, this will result in forfeiture of all monies and points earned in that event.
