 General Rules -

Penalties will be issued for not being on the track to Marshall. There are numbered cones on the track. you are required to place your car and radio in the tub and marshal by that spot. They are number 1, 2, 3 etc. if you start in position number 3 then you are required to be marshalling in tub 3 area. There are no warnings - if you are not in tub 3 area at the start of the next race your best quallifing time will be disqualified for the day. If you are unable to marshal, you are responsible to have some marshal in your designated area.

No car will be driven at any time in reverse of the track traffic. If this occurs, a one-lap penalty will be deducted off the driver’s best time. The use of reverse is illegal in all classes.

Turn marshals may not work on or repair cars.

It is the Drivers responsibility to bring the vehicle to the Tech table immediately following your turn marshal duties. Failure to do so will result disqualification.                      

Any violation must be corrected BEFORE the car is raced. If a car passes through "Tech Inspection" and a technical illegality is over-looked, the vehicle is still illegal.  

Any racer may front $50 for tech inspection for any car on the track - if the car is found to be legal the $50 will be forfeited and given to the legal racer.
