Event Specific Rules Continued;

 

–       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 instructed to do so on the one-way radio, if in the judgment of the Mr. DIRTcar Sportsman Modified Series Officials, the pace is not maintained a penalty and/or penalties may be issued.

–       All restarts in all races (qualifying, B-Main’s and or the Feature) will be double-file with lead lap cars to the front and take place near the exit of turn four as specified in the driver’s meeting. Single file restarts may be instituted at any time during any race at the discretion of the Series Director.

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

–       Caution laps will not count.

–       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 Sportsman 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 instruction over the one-way radio, a 1-lap penalty may be issued.

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

–       One-way radios are mandatory.

–       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.

–       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.
