Sportsman Like Conduct:  Everyone will treat Officials, racers, and spectators with respect.  ANYONE using foul language or threatening behavior will be asked to leave.  Unsportsman like conduct will NOT be tolerated and may result in forfeiting all winnings, points and attendance to the facility.

Dogs/Pets:  Dogs/pets must be contained in a vehicle or attended and on a leash at all times.  You are responsible for cleaning up after and/or any incident involving your dog/pet.  Failure to follow this rule could result in this privilege being revoked.   

Speed Limit in the Pits:  The speed limit is 5 mph in the pits.  Speeding in the pits will NOT be tolerated and may result in forfeiting all winnings, points and attendance to the facility.  We do not want a tragedy and have someone injured because of someone going over the speed limit.  A person must be a licensed driver to operate bicycles, scooters, golf carts, etc. from the time the ambulance arrives until the ambulance leaves.  No skateboards at any time during racing. 

Tow Vehicles:  Tow vehicles for Super Pro cars only.  Tow vehicle must be ready to leave immediately or you will have to wait until after the next set, then get down the strip as quickly as possible to get your tow.  Anyone in the back of a tow pick-up must be seated and at least 14 years old.  All minors must have a signed minor liability waiver on file with the Humboldt Del Norte Timing Association. 

Running Vehicles:  There must be a qualified driver in the driver’s seat any time a vehicle is running. 

Jack Stands:  Before anyone goes under a vehicle, it must be supported by jack stands.  If your vehicle is running and the rear tires are elevated, you must support the vehicle with jack stands with a qualified driver in the drivers seat. 

Staging Area:  Only authorized personnel will be allowed in the staging area behind the starting line.  You must sign the waiver at tower and obtain a wristband to enter this area.   Keep down track access clear at all times for emergency vehicles. 

Burn Outs:  Super Pro may burn out across the line once.  Pro, Sportsman and Sportsman Motorcycle cannot cross the line at any time.  Burnouts will be from the edge of the water box forward. 

Dial in Board:  If your dial-in is incorrect do not stage.  If you stage and accept a green light there will be no rerun.  Make dial-in’s clear and large – front and left side windows.   

Staging Procedures:  The courtesy staging procedure is highly recommended.  A car SHOULD NOT go in and turn on both the pre stage and stage lights before their opponent enters the stage lights.   All staging procedures are forward motion only in eliminations. 

Deep Staging:  Deep staging is optional in all categories.  DEEP must be written on all four corners of your car so the starter and your opponent can see that you will be deep staging. 

Blue Line Rule:  The blue line is 24” behind the starting line.  Once the front tires cross this line, no one can touch the car. 

Right of Way:  After crossing the finish line, the car in the LEFT lane has the right of way when making the left turn on to the return road.  Please be aware and don't turn in front of an oncoming car no matter what lane you are in, either lane may need to use the additional run off area past the turn into the return road.   

Down Track Safety:  Do not remove seat belts/helmet until after you have made the turn on to the return road.  It is highly recommended that you leave them on until you enter the pits.   

Round Winners, PLEASE get back into line as soon as possible.  It is the driver's responsibility to know when you are to be in the lanes and ready to run.  If your car is not able to hot lap, do not run in more than one class. 

DO NOT TAKE COMPLAINTS TO THE TOWER!   All complaints or problems are to be directed to your class representative.

 If your car gets out of shape, get out of it and save your equipment.   

Remember clean up and securing of the facility after each race is everybody’s responsibility!
