GENERAL RULES

All persons entering through the gate must sign the insurance release form. Track personnel reserve the right to remove any
racer, pit crew member or spectator from the premises after Gregory S. Riggleman’s approval.

ALL RACES
Due to ordinance all races must be completed by 12:00 midnight. Any person(s) creating loud disturbances after this hour will be removed from the club property.

BATTERIES
All batteries must be in a safe position and must be securely mounted.

BRAKES
All machines must have functioning rear brakes. All brakes must meet OEM specifications and must be in safe operating condition.

DISPLACEMENT CLAIMS
The basic factor for determining the cc’s will be the manufacturer’s cc displacement embossed or stamped on the engine case and/or cylinder. In classes where entries are not restricted in overbore, the manufacturer’s claim will determine the class. Classes that restrict overbore will be bound to the manufacturer’s cc displacement displayed. If the entry does not have the original manufacturer’s cc displacement displayed, that entry will run the highest class assignable or have cc’s verified by engine teardown. Classes that limit cc’s are subject to verification. All displacement claims are the sole responsibility of the participant. Please Note: The club reserves the right to teardown any machine, at the rider’s expense, to verify legality of the machine.

DISCLAIMER FORMS
Any rider having a dispute with another rider in the same class as himself must fill out a disclaimer form completely, pay the required fee, and turn the form over to the track officials to be reviewed. Forms are available in the tower.

PERMITTED MODIFICATIONS
Only the modifications listed in the class rules will be allowed, any others will be deemed illegal.

ATV CLASSES
ATV classes consist of 4-wheel ATV’s only due to insurance regulations. NO EXCEPTIONS. A-arms will not be allowed to be lower than level with the registered rider on the machine.

RIDERS—ONE RIDER. PER MACHINE, PER CLASS
If two riders are caught riding the same machine in the same class, they will both be disqualified.
Any rider caught registered under someone else’s name and number will be disqualified.
Both parties will be penalized a three (3) race suspension and a $100 fine.
Any rider moving to the next highest division must not move back to a lesser division in the same season, (example: mini-mini to amateur or amateur to pro) No rider can run Mini-Mini and Amateur.

FUEL
Racing gas generally available is allowed. All fuels will be checked against a club sample for legality. All gasoline must pass an electronic and/or chemical test to club specifications. No oxygenated fuels will be deemed legal to run due to the possibility of explosion when testing. If caught running one of these fuels, the rider will be disqualified for one year from date. Some fuels you buy at local gas stations are not legal for racing due to anti-knock additives being alcohol based. There is no consistency from one time to another. It is recommended that all racers use some form of racing gas. If you are unsure if the gas you are using is legal, at your request, the club will test it.

Please note: KNOWN ILLEGAL FUELS WILL BE POSTED IN THE TOWER.
