2013 GENERAL AND BUILDING RULES
MUFFLERS & RACEIVERS MANDATORY IN ALL CLASSES
SCHOENFELD 112535 REQUIRED IN SPRINTS
GATES OPEN AT 5:00 – DRAW CLOSES AT 6:30
HOT LAPS AT 7:00 – RACES AT 7:30
IGNORANCE OF RULES IS NO DEFENSE!!
IF IT DOESN’T SAY YOU CAN ~ THEN YOU CAN’T!!
1. FLAGMAN HAS COMPLETE AUTHORITY DURING THE RACE!
2. Heats and “B” features are on a 15 minute time limit. After 5 yellows/reds in an
“A” feature – we will go green/white/checkered.
3. FIRESUITS ARE MANDATORY IN ALL CLASSES. No driver is allowed
to race/hot lap in shorts & t-shirts. Racing helmets are MANDATORY in all classes and
should have a “SNELL” rating of at least 95. Neck braces and window nets (or arm
restraints) are MANDATORY in all classes. Fire resistant gloves and shoes are
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. These safety precautions benefit YOU!!
4. Only towing vehicle, trailer and racecar are allowed in pits. Any exception,
the vehicle must buy a pit pass. Track insurance does not cover any damage done to any
vehicle in the pit area.
5. Cars should be painted in a professional manner with the number painted in a
contrasting color on BOTH sides and TOP of car, large enough for scorer to distinguish
from the press box. THE TRACK ASSIGNS NUMBERS. WHOLE NUMBERS
ONLY. If you do not register a number, or you run a number assigned to somebody else,
you lose your right to protest the scoring of a race. Having your own number benefits
YOU, not the track!
6. If needed, cars must pack the track. Track packing starts at 6:30. If you do not
pack with your class, you will not receive packing points and you will run tailback in
your heat. Cars that do not pack will not receive passing points if applicable. You have 3
minutes to get on the track once your class is called. You must stay on the track until
motioned off in order to receive your 50 packing points. If you are having trouble with
your car, please tell the tech person in order for you to retain your starting spot in the
heat. You will not receive packing points. If you are late, NO points but you will retain
your starting spot in heat.
7. Track officials are not allowed to draw for any reason. Line-ups will be made
after the draw has closed. Car must be at track in order to draw. If you have not drawn,
you will run tailback (no passing points). If you wish to run tailback, please tell the
officials at the draw. IF one car does not make the line-up, all cars behind that car will
move straight forward, except where point averages/passing points apply (the line-up will
crisscross). If 2 or more cars in the same line do not make the line-up (or crash on the
first lap), the cars will be crisscrossed.
8. POINTS GO TO THE DRIVER. Points are earned by packing the track,
paying positions in the heats and by taking the green in the “B” feature and “A” feature.
If you miss 3 consecutive point nights, you lose all your accumulated points. Every night
is a track point night unless otherwise noted.
9. All cars MUST qualify through heats (or “B” features) for the “A” feature.
The first heat determines the inside row and the second heat determines the outside row,
except where passing points/point averages apply. “B” feature race transfers line up at
the back of the “A”. We will spin the inversion wheel after heat races to decide whether
or not to invert rows 0, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6. If you break in hot laps and able to get car fixed by
the “A”, you will be allowed to run AS LONG AS there are less than 20 cars in the “A”.
10. Race line-ups will be posted at the crow’s nest (by the scales) and at the back
pit concession stand. It is the driver’s responsibility to know their position. All races
will be aligned in the pit area. Drivers will be called to line up in the designated area.
Cars are to be in the correct line up and ready to start the race before entering the track.
If you miss the line up, you will run tailback. If you pass the pace vehicle, you will go
tailback. No hot laps between races.
11. When the front row of cars reaches the white line (in turn 4), the start will be
official upon the flagman signaling with the green flag. The pole car will set the pace,
which shall be consistent with track conditions and as required to keep the field in NOSE
TO TAIL FORMATION. If you are out of line, the yellow flag will wave and you will
be put on the rear. The race is officially over when the checkered flag is thrown.
The only flag to follow the white is the checkered, unless the track is completely
blocked and/or in case of fire. In this case, the race will be paid from the last completed
lap. If the leader has taken the white flag and has a clear path to the checkered, the
checkered will be thrown. If not, a yellow will be thrown and cars lined up (minus the
cars in the yellow) and we will go green/white/checkered. If a yellow has to be thrown
during this restart, the race will be over and paid from the last completed lap (minus the
cars in the yellow/red).
12. The pole car should start the race at a reasonable speed. Do not keep the pace
so slow that the cars behind are “bogged” down. Flagman may signal car to pick up
speed. If this signal is ignored, flagman may put that car on the rear. This includes
single file restarts. It is up to the front row to set an even pace so that the race is started
evenly. If this cannot be done in 2 attempts, one or both cars will go to the rear.
13. On a restart, all cars return to their original starting position EXCEPT the cars
that the yellow/red was thrown for. Those cars GO TO THE REAR. On the first lap, all
cars must come through the green in order for the lap to be complete, except for those
cars for which the yellow/red was thrown. After that, when the first 2 cars come through
the green and a yellow/red is thrown, the lap is complete. The rest of the lap will be
filled in from the last completed lap, with exception to the cars involved in the
yellow/red. WE DO NOT RACE TO THE YELLOW OR RED FLAG. The scorers
count laps from the press box, using the pole at the flag stand as the finish line.
A RED FLAG MEANS STOP ~ THERE IS A DANGEROUS SITUATION ON
THE TRACK. DO NOT DRIVE AROUND TO BE CLOSE TO YOUR PIT CREW. IF
YOU IGNORE THE RED FLAG, YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED. A green and red
light on at the same time means it is an “open” red ~ your pit crew is allowed on the
track. If only the red is on, it is a “closed” red and NO ONE is allowed on the track.
A yellow and red light on together is the signal for a complete restart in double
file order. On single file restarts, a cone will be used on the back straight. Stay to the
right of the cone. If you run over the cord or cone, you will be put to the rear. The race
will be started when the leader reaches the cone (you may pick up speed coming out of
turn 2). Cars need to be in nose to tail formation and if you pass cars before you reach
the cone, a yellow will be thrown and you will go to the rear or you will be penalized at
the end of the race for “jumping” cars. A cone is also placed on the front straight for cars
to get single file. If you do not get in single file formation and/or go under the cone, you
will be put to the rear of the field. Lapped cars will be put to
the rear of the field. Cars on the lead lap that cause a
yellow/red will be aligned in front of lapped cars. A lapped car is defined as a car that is not on
the same lap as the lead cars. Scoring is based on how many laps you have completed. If
2 cars are down the same amount of laps, but 1 car takes the checkered and the other
doesn’t, the car that took the checkered will be paid ahead of the car that didn’t.
14. If you are charged with a yellow/red, you will go to the rear of the field,
regardless whether you made contact or stopped on the track (refer to rule #1). Arguing
will get you sent off the track. If you are charged with 2 UNASSISTED yellows, you
will be sent off the track. If a yellow is thrown for debris and it is yours, you will be
charged with an unassisted yellow. Sprint cars ~ if you require a 2nd push to be started ~
you will be charged with a yellow.
15. You have 2 laps to get into correct spot after being shown by officials. If you
can not do that, you will be black flagged.
16. Intentional yellows will get you sent off the track (examples including but not
limited to: flats, sitting in infield then pulling out on track and stopping, stopping on
track then after yellow being thrown driving to pit area).
17. Any car leaving the track under yellow/red will go to rear of restart. Cars
will be aligned according to the way they come back to the track. Minor adjustments can
be made to a car under red. No pit crews allowed on track under yellow. Driver must
stay in car unless told otherwise. If driver gets out of car, his/her race is over.
18. BLACK FLAG APPLIES TO ALL CLASSES. Not seeing flag is no
excuse. The black flag will be given to any car causing 2 yellows, not at “racing’ speed,
dragging loose parts, flats on right side, excessive smoking or rough driving. (Again,
refer to rule #1). If you ignore the black flag, we will ignore you at the pay window and
when doing points.
19. Protests must go through pit steward. Protest must be done within 5 minutes
of end of race. Only driver is allowed to protest.
DRIVER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR FAMILY AND CREW MEMBERS! This
includes emails and phone calls. Any unauthorized person (this includes wives, kids,
sponsors, girlfriends, boyfriends, pit crews, etc…) entering the press box or flag stand,
will get their driver suspended for a minimum of 2 weeks. Any unsportsmanlike
conduct will get the driver at least a 2 week suspension. The police officers will enforce
the rules and regulations of I-30 Speedway in addition to the County, State and Federal
laws. Flipping off the flagman/crowd is an automatic 3 week suspension ~ this will be
strictly enforced. Excessive speeding or other inappropriate displays in the pit area will
cause the driver to be suspended. This includes racecars and 4-wheelers.
FIGHTING: If you go to another driver’s pit/car to argue/fight, you are the one
who is considered wrong and you will be subject to penalties.
If you are suspended or disqualified twice in one season, you will lose all accumulated points. If
you are suspended or disqualified in the last 4 weeks of racing, you will lose all accumulated points.
If you are suspended, you will not be able to race on the next point nights for your
class. Rainouts do not count toward your suspension. If you
are disqualified for any reason during the last 2 weeks of points
racing, you will lose all accumulated points.
20. COURTESY RULE: Any car from another track with MINOR rule
infractions will be allowed to race one night. However, you will be notified of any
necessary changes and will have to be legal to I-30 Speedway rules on your next visit.

21. If a car cuts through the infield “wide open”, it will be counted as one lap
down. Stirring up dust is considered “wide open”.

called, any driver not attending forfeits any protest or discussion rights for the night.
25. Any driver changes that occur after the line-up is posted must start on the rear
of the heat race. Any driver changes after the heat race, driver must start on the rear of
the “B” or “A”. A driver who had qualified for the “A” feature may change cars, but a
driver who is not qualified for the “A” feature cannot race a car that is qualified for the
feature. For any changes, you must notify track officials. If you fail to do so, you forfeit
money and points earned for the night. NO driver changes after the green has been given
in a race.
27. ALL PERSONS WHO ENTER THE PIT AREA MUST SIGN THE
