Family, Friends, Pets & Pits
1) Each Rider is responsible for the actions of anyone in their pit, or anyone who is part of their group. Irresponsible behavior will not be tolerated. In the event that this behavior occurs, or facility rules are broken, the racer may be asked to leave, and all finishing positions, and / or points forfeited.
2) ALL PETS MUST BE ON A LEASH! NO EXCEPTION! Clean up after your pet.
3) Each racer is responsible for any debris left behind in his or her pit area. (Please leave our tracks cleaner than you found them!)
4) Camping- When overnight camping is available; it is the racer who is responsible for their guests. The privilege of staying overnight can be revoked at
any time. There may be instances where the Raceway may have to charge an overnight camping fee. Should the camping area be limited, racers may be
assigned to a specific area. We ask for your patience in these matters. Even if a racer and his/ her guests have paid for overnight camping, they may be asked to
leave if they demonstrate undesirable or illegal behavior with no refund.
5) Pit riding should be at a walking pace and in some circumstances; we might enforce a NO PIT RIDING RULE. Remember that we have a lot of foot traffic in
Race and Practice Day
A Rider will not be allowed to practice prior to the signing of a liability release and completion of entry forms. By entering the event, it shall be deemed that the entrant has read these rules and agrees to be bound thereby. ALL COMPETITORS MUST HAVE THEIR OWN PERSONAL MEDICAL COVERAGE.
All event entrants and pit crew members are required to attend the riders meeting. During the riders meeting, the days schedule will be reviewed, any special information specific to the race day will be communicated, and track officials will be introduced. The riders meeting may conclude with a new rider orientation if needed. NOTE- an additional riders meeting may occur later in the day, should there be deviation from the original days scheduled events
Red Flag- If at any time during the race a Red Flag is displayed, all racing will immediately come to a halt. A Red Flag will be displayed and a race may be stopped if there is a situation that warrants. If more that half of the race has been completed, the race will be terminated and racers will be awarded with the position of their last lap. If less than half of the laps have been completed, the race will usually be restarted.
Yellow Flag-The Yellow Flag represents a warning to riders that the race track is not as expected and where extra attention is to be paid to the racing environment. Riders are expected to proceed with caution until past the yellow flag situation. When a waiving Yellow Flag is displayed passing is prohibited. Speed should be in check until you are beyond the incident.
Black Flag- If a rider is presented with a Black Flag, the rider is to safely return to the pits or pull off the track. The Black Flag is presented to a rider under the following conditions: Race conduct, or race officials observing a motorcycle presenting a danger to
the other riders (a loose part that may fall off, or leaking some sort of fluid). Failure to comply will result in a loss of championship points.
Green Flag- A the start of the race a Green Flag will be waived. The continual displaying of the Green Flag indicates that the track is live and the race is in progress. (Where available a light system will take the place of the green flag. Starting procedure will be reviewed at every race meeting.)
White Flag- The White Flag informs the riders that there is one lap remaining in the race.
Crossed Green & White Flags- May be used at some events to indicate the half-way point of the race.
Blue Flag- Usually used in a Pro Race to inform the soon to be passed riders that the race leaders are approaching.
Checkered Flag- Indicates the end of a race and a winner is declared.

Scoring & Grid Positions
Heat Race Grid positions will be determined as follows…
• First race of the season will be determined by sign up order.
• Subsequent races will use series point standings, and race entry orders for racers without points.
• Heat race position for series championship events will be determined by timed 2nd. practice session using transponder time. (in the event that transponders are not available the grid will be set by the Raceway timing & scoring officials)
• Main event grid positions will be determined by finishing order of heat race.
• In the event that there are more riders entered in a class than can be safely run at one time, the class will be divided in to two or more heat races as needed (to be determined by race director). The division of entries between the heats should be balanced by current point standings (1st in points Heat #1, 2nd in points Heat #2…etc)
• The race director will determine the number of qualifiers advancing to the Main.
