Nascar rules you are only allowed to drive through a maximum of 3 pit boxes before your box and one box after your box. Stay to the far right line while driving down pit row to allow room for cars entering and leaving pit boxes. Maintain control of your car, if you are out of control then you are the cause.

11) On short tracks with No double file restarts, When starting the race or starting after a yellow, everyone needs to just hold your position until after the first corner, the cars in front of you earned that position and deserves to at least be able to maintain that position for one turn. The only time you should go a head and go around the cars in front of you would be if they get a very bad start, take the first corner badly, if you cannot make the pass on the first curve or even the second curve with out making contact or causing a wreck then wait until a time when you can. Remember 1 points if you bring out a caution.

 

 

 

 

Green-White-Checker Race Finishes

We will use Green-White-Checker format for race finishes when conditions call for it. If the caution Yellow Flag comes out on the last lap of the race, the field should race back to the finish line and the race is officially over. If the Race ends while we are under a caution following the pass car, then we will institute the Green-White-Checker rule. The field will continue around the track at Pace speed in standard restart formation. When the car in the Pole position reaches the start finish line we will go Green. When we come around to the start finish line, the field will take the white flag, when we reach the start finish line the next time we will take the checker flag. This will now be the official finishing order of the race. There will be no lucky dogs and No wave around for the green-white-checker. There will be no jumping the restart, any wrecks caused during the Green-White-Checker will be reviewed for Penalty points. Own it, 1 Point, Don't own it, 3 Points.

 

 Double File restarts

 

Restarts after a caution the race leader will restart with his choice of lanes, inside or outside lane. The second-place driver would then restart next to the leader. Drivers in odd number positions (third, fifth, seventh places, etc.) will restart on the inside lane, while drivers in even number positions (fourth, sixth, eighth places, etc.) will restart on the outside. All restarts will use the same format regardless of the number of laps remaining in the race. Black flags caused by double file restarts will be cleared if you are on the outside lane your black flag will be cleared You know that you must keep your bumper behind the car on the inside lane until green so don't do it.

The first-place driver will continue to control the timing of restarts in a designated zone on the track. Likewise, cars are to stay in line until they reach the start/finish line or risk Black Flags. The no passing before the first curve rule will be eliminated. No Double file restarts & no passing till after the first curve on these tracks. Bristol, Martinsville, Richmond, Dover, Darlington, Watkins Glenn, Phoenix, Infinion, New Hampshire.

 

Lucky Dog & Wave Arounds

 

The first eligible car a lap or more down will continue to earn one lap back following a caution, which is known as the "free pass” (Lucky Dog). The "free pass" (Lucky Dog) will remain in effect the entire race. 

Lapped cars choosing to remain on the track without pitting will be "waved around" the Pace car and will restart the race in respective track position, thus picking up a lap to the leader. This will also remove lapped cars from behind the pace car, allowing the leaders to take the green without interference. Until 10 to go. If the caution comes out with 10 or less to go, then there will be no wave arounds.

If we are going to go green with Under 5 to go ALL Lap down cars must pit when the pit opens for lap cars, allowing the leaders to take the green without interference.

Caution on lap 11, wave around, Caution on Lap 10 NO wave around.

Procedure for Lucky Dogs, You MUST pit on your designated lap NOT with lead lap cars. Lucky Dogs can pit & get gas & tires.

Lucky Dogs MUST speed on Pit lane to receive a End of the longest line Penalty, thus putting them at the back of the pack.

When we go Green our admins will add a lap to the Lucky Dog. Follow all rules as we will NOT clear a black flag for the Lucky Dog, we will only add a Lap. If your only penalty is speeding in the Pits, then you will only receive a EOLL penalty.

Procedure for Wave arounds, stay on the track in your designated position, when the lights go out for the one to go, pass on the HIGH SIDE and come around to the back of the field. When we go green an admin will clear your black Flag.

 We may have to call a Special Wildcat "Green caution" depending on the Track and the number of black Flags we have to clear. A Green caution procedure is, when the race goes green, the field will maintain pace speed and stay inline so that the admins can add laps to the lucky dog and clear black flags for wave arounds, This is to be fare to our admins because they are racing admins. When the Race leader comes to the start finish line we will resume racing.

 

 

Chase Format

After 26 “regular season” races, the Top 50% drivers, as determined by points accumulated during the regular season, automatically advance to contend for the Cup Championship.  These drivers are joined by one “wild card” qualifier.  The driver that is lower in the standings that has the most race wins will be the “wild card” and therefore taking the final spot in the Chase.  All drivers total points will be washed clean and Chase Drivers reset at a base of 2,000 points per driver.  Each of the automatic qualifiers receives a bonus of 2 point for each win during the regular season.  The wild card qualifier will not receive any bonus points.  Normal scoring applies during the Chase, with race winners earning 43 base points plus 3 bonus points, all drivers who lead a lap earns 1 bonus point, and the driver who leads the most laps earns 1 bonus point, driver getting the Pole earns 2 bonus points in addition to points earned based on race finish position.

 

Season 10 Points system

* Any driver who leads a lap during a race receives one bonus point.
