Sportsmanship:
Proper manners and good sportsmanship are expected from all drivers at all times. It is important to understand that general bad behavior like cursing, intentional bad driving, etc, will not be accepted and can result in a driver being penalized, disqualified or even asked to leave in extreme cases.

All participants will be expected to attend the drivers' meeting.  All rules are available online at www.pnracing.com Drivers will be expected to understand and comply with each rule by the time they leave the driver's meeting. Ask any questions at this time.

If there is a rules dispute between drivers it must be brought to the attention of the race director or PN Racing personnel. The officials at the track will do their best to resolve any issue to the satisfaction of everyone.

If a racer notices an illegal item on another racer's car. Please report to PN Racing official after that racer's race, so the car can be inspected without interference.

Substitute drivers are not allowed in any qualification or main event race. An immediate disqualification from the event for both drivers will result.

 

Jumped starts:

A jumped start is any movement of a vehicle between the time the Starter announces the start time and the starting signal.

Penalties:

If one or more vehicles jump start, a false start will be declared, and the grid will be re-formed. If the same vehicle moves second time, it will be moved back the length of the grid from its original starting position.

If a jumped start is not called by the officials immediately at the start of a race but can be verified afterwards by at least two race officials using  any recording device, a ten second penalty will be added to that offendersˇ¦ particular qualifying time or if a  main event, a one lap penalty will be assessed.

 

ˇ@

Technical Inspections:

All racers are encouraged to bring their cars to the officials during open practice so that any corrections can be made before the official inspection.

ˇP             Before each race
Technical inspections will take place before each race. Inspections will be performed by PN Racing officials. If the PN Racing official determines that the car does not meet the requirements specified in this document the car will be deemed illegal and will not be allowed to race. It will be the responsibility of the driver to ensure that the car meets all requirements and passes inspection before the race begins. In the event that the PN Racing official does not catch a violation, the car will still be considered illegal and the racer will be subject to any consequences of running an illegal car.

ˇP             After each race
Cars and radios from each race must be put on the post-race tech table for any post-race inspection that is required. Drivers that did not finish their race are still subject to this rule. Inspection of cars will start only after the start of the preceding race (for example, inspection for race 2 will start after race 1 has started and is underway). Cars on the post-race tech table will not be released until the end of the following race (for example, cars that ran in race 2 will be released when race 3 is completed).  

 

Final approval to approve the legality of any car is not valid until after the post-race inspection.
