One of the rarities at an event is the situation in which two cars are disqualified during the same elimination race. In most cases, both offending contestants are disqualified. Those situations include:

    • Both drivers crossing the boundary line.

    • Both drivers deep stage.

    • Both drivers breaking track safety rules.

Should a driver receive a red light foul start, and the opposing driver crosses the lane boundary line, the latter infraction would prevail and the driver committing the foul would be reinstated. In determining lane boundary crossing violations, it is considered a disqualification when any potion of a tire completely crosses the painted line surface. In cases where both opponents cross the center line our outside line both opponents will be disqualified. In situations where multiple boundary lines are utilized, the line directly adjacent to the competitors racing lane will be used for reference. Any time it has been judged that excessive braking has resulted in the loss of control as to cause contact with the guardrail, light fixtures, or crossing the center boundary lines, the driver will be disqualified. Intentional crossing of boundary lines to leave track or avoid depositing debris on track is not grounds for disqualification.

  1. ALL M/C & ATV's  & golf carts & even scooters & motorized anything ,must have vehicle # on them. NO one w/o drivers license allowed to drive these. 1st - Warning will be issued, 2nd - We will disqualify the racer that allowed use of the  vehicle. insurance has changed for all riders.

  2. To protest a racers qualifications, you must put up $50 for a  vehicle inspection. If protested part(s) are found, the racer will be banned from the track, 1st = 1 month, 2nd = life,  & protester will get money back.
