Starts 

  • All starts and restarts will take place at the designated line in turn 4.
  • All cars should stay in line until the green flag is displayed.

Caution Flags 

  • Do not race to the caution flag.  Hold your position on the track.
  • All classes revert back to the last completed green flag lap for the restart lineup.
  • If a caution occurs before the completion of the first lap, there will be a complete restart.  Everyone retains their original starting position unless they pit or receive assistance from the safety crew.
  • On a complete restart, if a car drops out or goes to the rear, that line will simply move forward. 
  • After one lap is complete, those involved in the cause of the caution, as well as anyone who pits, will restart on the rear of the longest line.

 

Red Flags 

  • Stop immediately.  You will be directed by track official where to line up. 
  • You may pit under red flag conditions after track officials have indicated that it is safe to do so.  Upon returning to the track you will line up at the rear of the field.
  • No working on the car on the track.  No crew members allowed on the track.

 

Restarts

  • All restarts will be double file.
  •  On the signal from the flagman, the leader of the race may choose to restart on the inside or the outside.  From third place on back the rest of the cars will alternate inside and outside lanes.  Lapped cars will start on the rear.

 

 

 

Penalties 

  • If you stop on or near the racing surface to purposely cause a caution, you will receive a 2 lap penalty. 
  • If there is a driver change that is not reported to an official, all money and points will be forfeited for that race.

Line-up Procedures for Regular Race Meets

Registration

  • All drivers will report to a designated area and register.
  • Failure to register will result in that driver starting on the rear.

 

Heat Races

  • Heat race line-ups will be determined by a draw or current points.
  • The formula for determining the number of heat races will be as follows:

less than 8 cars – 1 heat

8-20 cars – 2 heats

21-30 cars – 3 heats

31-40 cars – 4 heats

41+ cars – 5 heats

 

Feature

  • Feature race line-ups will be determined by heat race finishes or qualifying times if time trials are conducted. A roll of the dice will determine the invert.
  • If there are fewer than 26 cars, all cars will run the feature event.
  • When the car count reaches 26, the 18 top heat race finishes or qualifiers will be locked into the feature and the remainder will run the B-main.
  • The top 2 finishers in the B-Main will be added to the feature to make a 20 car starting field.
  • All feature races will be inverted by role of the dice.

 

 

Race Procedures for Pro Late Models

Time Trials

  • Qualifying order will be determined by a draw. If you miss your turn in line, the best you can start is 11th.
  • Everyone will get two consecutive timed laps.
  • Once you have taken the white flag, you have an official time.  No re-qualifying.

Yellow Flags 

  • Caution laps don’t count.
  • Do not race to the yellow flag. Hold your position on the track.
  • After one lap is complete, the lineup will revert to the last completed green flag lap. Those involved in the cause of the caution, as well as anyone who pits, will restart on the rear. 
  • Pace car will pick up the field in turn 1. Pits are closed. Follow pace car to start-finish line. Lead lap cars can double up at the line to pit. Second time by, anyone can pit. If you pit out of order, restart tail end of line.

Restarts

  • All restarts will be double file. 
  • At the 2 to go signal, lapped cars will move to the rear of the lead lap cars.
  • The 1st car a lap down when the caution fell will be given a ‘free pass’ around the pace car and credited with a lap. Also, any cars behind the pace car that are on the tail end of a lap will be given a ‘wave-by’ until the leader is the first car behind the pace car. 
  • Note: No ‘free pass’ will be given during the last 10 laps of the race or if the designated car was involved in the cause of the caution.
  • The leader may choose to start inside or outside. Everyone else will double up, off positions on the inside, even positions on the outside.
