Event Specific Rules / Race Procedures:
– Group Time Trials will be based on a “green-white-checkered”. The fastest lap will be the ‘time of record’. Any additional laps as determined by Super DIRTcar and/or World Racing Group officials will not be recorded for any qualifying purpose.
– All Qualifying Races will be 8-laps. All ‘B’ Features will be 10-laps. Caution laps will not count.
– All original starts will be side-by-side off turn four in the area of the VP Racing Fuels ‘Making Power Point’ until the green flag is displayed.
– All Restarts will be double-file with lead lap cars to the front in the area of the VP Racing Fuels ‘Making Power Point’. The leader is the control car on all starts and/or restarts.
– 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 Super DIRTcar Big Block Modified Series Officials, the pace is not maintained a penalty and/or penalties may be issued.
– There will be no EZ Pass candidate in any Qualifying Races and/or ‘B’ Features.

Event Specific Rules / Race Procedures continued;
– The feature will be 100-laps. Caution laps will count from lap 1 through the completion of lap 75. From lap 76 to the completion of the event, cautions will not count.
– There will be a four (4) wide pace lap. Odd numbered rows pull to the outside, even numbered rows pull up and fill in. This will be instructed over the one-way radio.
– The Original start will be side-by-side off turn four in the area of the VP Racing Fuels ‘Making Power Point’ until the green flag is displayed.
– All restarts up to the completion of lap 75 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.
– After the completion of lap 75, all remaining restarts will be single file with lead lap cars to the front until the completion of the event.
– On all starts and restarts 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 Super DIRTcar Big Block Modified Series Officials, the pace is not maintained a penalty and/or penalties may be issued.
– The leader is the control car on all starts and/or restarts. Only the leader has choice of inside or outside on starts and/or restarts.
– When the caution is displayed, 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 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.
– 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, Super DIRTcar Big Block 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.
– 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 may end with a green-white-checker finish.
– One-way radios are mandatory – two-way radios will not be permitted.
– 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.
