That tire will be reviewed and the driver may face further possible penalties. The wheel will be returned to the driver. Tire warmers and any other means of artificially warming tires are prohibited. NOTE: Anyone caught using or possessing tire softener in their hauler or pit area will be subject to penalties from management. No tire soaking of any type.

Rental units are available from the speedway. 1.)Transponders for Late Models should be mounted on the rear side of the engine mounting plate or to the engine compartment side of the firewall but can be no less than 80″ from the center nose of the car. Shims can be used between the engine plate and mounting bracket to obtain this distance. 2).Transponders must be mounted in a vertical position pointing straight down and as close to the ground as possible. There cannot be any metal, carbon fiber or other material that would deflect or block the signal between the transponder and the ground. Other than wiring used to connect direct powered units the transponder should not be mounted within 12″ of any device that generates, transports or stores electric or magnetic energy (individual race cars may require a greater distance or shielding). 3.)Transponders/brackets should be riveted, wire tied or clamped to the mounting point with additional wire ties, clamps or other securing devices encompassing the entire mounting point /bracket / transponder for additional security. Speedway is not responsible for lost/damaged transponders. 4.) Damaged/Lost units rented from Speedway are the responsibility of renter. It is each race team’s responsibility to assure that the transponder they are using is mounted properly and in working condition at all times car is on track. Changes in mounting location may only be approved by speedway officials and only in the case of transponders not reading correctly. This shall only be approved if it is determined by officials that all other possibilities and scenarios to correct the situation have been exhausted.

22. TECHNICAL PROCEDURES: A. Any competing car must be presented to the tech man or tech area upon request. Only the driver or some competent official may accompany the car during the procedure. B. No feature will be declared official until the tech man is satisfied. C. All technical protests must be made with the tech official within ten minutes of the completion of the race. The winner is the only car who may be protested- In order to make a protest against the winner; the protesting car must have finished in the top five and on the lead lap. D. Any protests must be made to the proper official in an orderly and dignified manner. Protests of the winner will be allowed only if presented coherently and as the tech team sees fit. In the event of multiple protests we will determine the order of importance and select which if any we choose to omit. E. Fees: Protesting car must put up a $200 nonrefundable supervisory fee, additional items include $200 to pump engine, $250 per part protested, $500 to remove head, $1500 for complete tear down. F. Any other violation found during the inspection that was not part of the protest will still result in disqualification.

24. PENALTIES: The technical rules contained here have been assembled with great concern toward maximizing competition and minimizing costs. Rule violations will not be tolerated. Major violations will result in disqualification, loss of points, and prize money earned. Depending on the severity and the intent of the violation, there could be a suspension from future racing activity at the speedway. Minor violations will be considered major if they are not corrected in the grace period allowed by the tech team. Any car must be presented for the scrutiny of the tech man at our request, and results will not be considered official until we are satisfied. Any claiming must be done in an orderly manner, in cash, and under the conditions previously specified. If at any time the conduct of any team member, driver or associate becomes a discredit to the speedway, the sport, or himself, they will be removed from all racing activity at the track. Owners/ drivers are responsible for the behavior of all individuals associated with the car and may suffer similarly. These rules have been designed to facilitate the orderly conduct of and establish minimum or maximum requirements for the events. No express or implied warranty of safety shall result from publication or compliance with these regulations. Management is empowered to, at their discretion, deviate from specifications described herein. Management reserves the right to update these regulations at their discretion, in the interest of cost, safety, or fairness. Management’s interpretation of these regulations will always be considered final. Management has the right to confiscate any part deemed to be in violation of the technical rules. Any driver/ car found to be in violation of any technical/ procedural rules can have their racing privileges revoked for any length of time deemed appropriate by management.
