*** Payoff will be after the conclusion of the event by the track, location to be specified.

 

Event Specific Rules;

 

–       All starts are side-by-side until the green flag is displayed. The front row must maintain the pace established by the pace car and will be signaled to do so, on the one-way radio, if in the judgment of the Mr. DIRTcar 358 Modified Series Officials, the pace is not maintained a penalty and/or penalties may be issued.

–       All qualifying races will have double-file restarts throughout the race.

–       All restarts will take place in the area of the ‘VP Racing Fuels Power Point’ (indicated by the placement of the VP Fuel Barrels at the exit of turn four).

–       The leader is the control car on all starts and/or restarts.

–       All restarts up to lap 50 will be double-file with lead lap cars to the front – lapped cars will drop to the inside under caution and rejoin the field beginning after the last car on the lead lap in their order of running on the race track at the time of the caution.

–       If the caution is displayed and you must pit, you will not lose a lap in the pits. You may only lose a lap on the race track under green flag conditions.

–       Caution laps during this event will NOT count.

–       After the completion of lap 50 all remaining restarts will be single final until the completion of the event.

 

Event Specific Rules Continued;

 

–       There will be one (1) car eligible for the ‘EZ Pass Reward’ on each caution. The only car eligible will be the first one (1) lap down. The ‘EZ Pass’ car will be signaled over the one-way radio to pull up behind the pace car, but must not proceed past the pace car until instructed to do so on the one-way radio.

–       All races will end with a green-white-checker finish

–       One-way radios are mandatory – two-way radios will not be permitted.

–       When the caution is displayed, please get into single-file order, you will be signaled over the one-way radio when it is time to go double-file and/or restart single file.

–       If at any time the red flag is displayed and competitors are signaled to stop due to a red flag condition, cars must come to a complete stop. After the field is stopped and is under control of the pace car, Mr. DIRTcar 358 Modified Series Officials, will instruct any vehicle not involved in the red flag incident that needs to pit for service, to pull up to the pace car prior to being released to the pit area on the one-way radio. Any car that pits during the red flag period will be required to restart at the tail of the field in their respective position. If any car heads to the pits without following the instructing over the one-way radio, a 1-lap penalty may be issued.

–       It is mandatory to have the following decals on the car (DIRTcar, Super DIRTcar Series, VP Racing Fuels and Hoosier) and the driver must have a VP patch on his uniform.

–       To be eligible for other available contingencies you must run the decals. Included is a guided map for two available options to place decals on your vehicle.

–       Immediately following the conclusion of the event, the first place car needs to go to the scale first, then we need second and third to the scales and to victory lane.
