Pill cut off will be 5:30p.m. Any late arrivals not pulling a pill will start at the rear of the heats in a first come, first served manner. If a car(s) misses the heat races, he or she will start at the tail of the consy or feature.

Cars are ranked in order by the pill that they draw, from lowest to highest.

Line-ups will be posted on the pit board. It is each driver’s responsibility to be in line on time. Track officials will not come looking for you. Please line yourself up for your event. Cars will enter the line-up area as directed by the line-up officials. Cars should enter the speedway at a slow and steady pace double file (with the exception of the sprint cars) so that we can go green the next lap.

Please note that the Lawrenceburg Speedway lineup is used only for regular nights of racing. Any race event run by any sanctioning body, such as USAC, ALL STARS, WOO, etc. uses their own system for determining their starting lineups.

The Race Director will determine the number of qualifying heats to be run for the evening. Cars are then placed in order for the heat races, with the lowest pill number earning the pole for the first heat, second lowest outside pole for first heat, and so on. This is done until each car has a starting berth in a heat race. Cars arriving late may or may not account for changes, at the discretion of the race director.

If the car count is under 20, all cars will qualify for the feature race. If the car count is just over 20, by management discretion all cars may be allowed to start the feature without requiring a Last Chance Race.

WHEN THE HEAT RACES ARE RUN, the race director will determine the official finishing order. A specified number of the top finishers will transfer to the feature race, with the remainder of finishers placed into one or more last chance races. Last chance races will be lined up in straight up order, according to the heat race finishes.

All sprint cars must participate in wheel packing if called on to do so. If failure to do so, subject to no hot laps.

Safety lights and flags are to be obeyed at all times and strictly enforced.

No passing the pace car what so ever. Doing so will result in going to the tail of the field. If you are already scheduled to be on the tail then the driver will be charged with one caution.

The pace to be used for all starts and restarts will be set by the leader, and shall be at the pace car or pace truck speed. Cars must stay in order and side-by-side. The pace may not be too fast or too slow, as determined by track officials. A leader who sets a pace that is too slow or too fast may be sent to the tail of the field.

All original starts in turn four at the orange cone or chalk line. The race is officially started when the flagman waves the green flag. Any car(s)caught passing before the green flag will be penalized as many places as cars passed at the next caution or end of the race whichever comes first.

Alternate car(s) may be added to the feature field if the initial green flag has not been waved. No car(s) will be added to the feature field once the green flag is waved.

To receive any monetary awards you must take the green flag for that race. In other words you will not be paid simply because qualified for a race.

If at any time you stop on the track or cause a yellow, you will be sent to the tail. Once you have caused TWO yellows or red flags, or any combination of the two, in the same event, you will be black-flagged.  A yellow will not be thrown for any car safely sitting off the track-racing surface. (Inside the tires)

When a yellow flag is waved, all drivers will slow down, and remain in position. There will be absolutely NO racing to the yellow flag. Anybody caught racing to the yellow will be put to the tail. Track Officials will put you back in to your proper order.  If a yellow flag waves and no laps have been completed, it will be a complete restart in double file order. If you spin and continue, and the yellow is thrown for you, you will go to the tail of the field.

A complete lap is considered completed when all the cars cross the finish line. It is the scorers discretion to have a complete lap scored if all of the field has completed a lap except the car or last 2 cars on the tail of the field that are the cause of the caution. Form a single line, nose to tail and do not race. Officials will correct the lineup when they receive it from the scorers. Remember that scorers go back to the previous lap completed.

All restarts will be single-file with the cone on the front stretch. Drivers must stay in single file order, strictly nose to tail and may not pass until they pass the cone.

All cars must go to the right of the cone at all times. Anyone hitting the cone will receive a TWO position penalty at the end of the race or the next caution. Any car going to the left of the cone under acceleration will go to the tail.
If you spin out and bring out 2 yellows you will be disqualified. More than 2 yellows or reds will also disqualify you.

The leader or leaders will bring the field to a designated spot (pylon, white line, etc.) on the track at a moderate pace (nose to tail). When this spot is reached the leader or leaders must accelerate.  The remainder of the field must do so also. If either front row car jumps the start that car will be moved back to the next row and the car in second row will be moved to the front row. If you do not comply with the penalty, you will be black flagged and disqualified from that race.

If you are not in the line-up chute when the race goes on the track, you will start the tail. If the one lap signal has been given, (or the lights are out) you are not allowed to enter the track. All starts will be double file and will receive the green flag at the cone in turn 4.  Restarts will constitute a single line formation so that race officials can correct the lineup as given to them by the scorers. The leader of the race will start all restarts at the cone on the front stretch. Any car going below the cone prior to the start, unless directed by an official, will be sent to the tail. Race line-ups will be posted in advance in which you will be responsible to know which races you will be starting in and your starting position. Failure of any driver to get into you designated position or to allow another driver into their designated position as directed by track officials will result in a black flag.

Drivers should exercise patience on the race track. Driver should respect the other drivers on the track. Please realize that nobody wants unnecessary and unneeded damage to their cars.

Cars black-flagged for blatant behavior such as rough driving, failure to obey officials, deliberately trying to stop the event, etc. will be disqualified and will receive the finishing position, pay, and points for last place of that race. These above infractions will not be tolerated at any time, no exception.

Any Disorderly conduct from driver or crew member toward any driver or track official will be disqualified for the remainder of the night. Second offense will be disqualified for the remainder of the year.

Any driver who stops on the track to protest will be disqualified.

If a driver’s car comes to a stop at any time on the track, the said driver will go to the rear. If a driver has been stopped by an official or if driver stops by an official for safety reasons (loose seat belts, debris on track, etc.), driver will retain their position. Exception: If a driver stops prior to the start of an event said driver will retain starting position.

Any car that is ruled by Track Officials as causing a caution on any lap will go to the rear of the field. Any car that stops on the track during a caution will be placed on the tail of the field. The call on the caution cars will be a mutual agreement between the Flagman, Spotters, and the Race Director. These will be judgment calls made by our Officials. Please be assured that the Officials will rule on these consistently as possible. Do not expect to get your position back, unless official determination is made otherwise.

Any driver who gets out of their car or unbuckles during a caution or red flag or any time while on the track,  period,  is finished for the race. Drivers can only unbuckle in the event of a fire or when told to do so by track officials.  Track Officials or safety crew members can advise drivers of any damage to their cars, but can do no work on the cars. The driver must stay with the car, as it is towed back to the pits. Any driver leaving their race car to argue with officials or competitors will be subject to disqualification and/or suspension.

Lapped cars are responsible for holding their line in all races all the way around the track. If you run high stay high, if you are running low stay low.

Under red flag conditions, all drivers must stop as quickly and safely as possible. Do not drive through the accident scene! Emergency and pit entrances of the track cannot be blocked.

Emergency personnel need to get to the accident scene as quickly as possible.

Red flag conditions, closed red – clean-up time will be minimal. No one is permitted on the track. Drivers are to remain in their cars.

No one is allowed on the racing surface during the race under caution. In the event of a wreck ONLY emergency personnel and speedway officials are allowed on the track. Any crew member, family member, or spectators entering the track will be subject to suspension. All of this is in the interest of safety. While we realize the concerns involved during a wreck we provide the best care possible and will summon any family members, crew members, etc. when necessary.

There will be no working on cars on the track. An official may check a car for safety reasons. Any car going to the pits will must remain in the pits for the duration of that event.

If you are involved in an accident and you have a part that is about to come off, we will attempt to remove the part or adjust your sheet metal or tubing so you can continue to race. If we cannot remove or adjust the part within a very short period of time and without the assistance of tools or excessive force, you will be requested to leave the track.

If driver does not make the race in his/her own car, he can start the race in a qualified car but must start from the tail. During the race no switching of cars will be allowed. If you qualify two cars you automatically scratch your first time. Inform one of the officials if you are switching cars. No switching of cars will be permitted during a race.

Alternate car(s) may be added to the feature field if the initial green flag has not been waved. No car(s) will be added to the feature field once the green flag is waved.

To receive any monetary awards you must take the green flag for that race. In other words you will not be paid simply because qualified for a race.

Under no circumstances will a driver drive by or stop at his/her trailer before weighing after any race. The amount of cars that will be weighed from each race will be announced at the drivers meeting. You must drive directly to the scales without stopping and line up for weighing. NO EXCEPTIONS. Failure to do so will disqualify you for the race.

To expedite the racing program the following time restraints will be put in place. Race time limits of one min. per lap such as 10 laps or 10 min. will be used in all classes. Red flag time is not counted against the time limit. If the time limit is reached under the yellow flag, the race will be restarted one final time. When a time limit has been reached, cars will be scored as to where they would have lined up on a restart. This system will be used on all heats and c, or b mains.

A lap is considered a lap when the leader has passed the flag stand. Once the yellow or red light is displayed, all scoring stops. Do not race back to the flag stand. The remainder of the field will be filled in from the last completed lap.

All scoring will be done at the start/finish line. Results and decisions will be made by scorers and/or track officials. No videos, pictures, etc. will be used to make rulings.

No participant shall subject a scorer or any track official to verbal or physical abuse or improper language at any time. The driver/owner assumes responsibility for the actions of their crew and themselves.

Only the driver or car owner as designated pit registration form may file a scoring or race protest. All protests will be filed with the pit steward. The driver or car owner will have five minutes after the results have been posted to file a protest.

Any driver, owner, or pit crew member entering the scoring tower or flag stand will be suspended for a minimum of one week and may disqualify the car and/or driver for a minimum of one week of racing, at the discretion of Lawrenceburg Speedway.

All disputes will be handled in a professional way. The driver and/or car owner should present himself in a positive manner – one that is acceptable by those he or she represents, and those who are nearby. At no time will drivers and/or owners be permitted to discuss race or scoring protests or disputes in the grandstand area.

The promoter, flagman, and track officials will enforce the rules of procedures and conduct, and determine sanctions.

If more than one car exits the race on the same lap, their finish will be determined by their last completed lap.

The decisions of Lawrenceburg Speedway officials or promoter at an event, including the interpretation and application of rules and the scoring of positions, shall be FINAL, BINDING, and NON-APPEALABLE, except in the case of a suspension or fine, which is further explained in the SUSPENSIONS/FINES & APPEALS category.

All participants, as a condition of participating in an event, agree that ALL decisions of officials or the promoter, regarding the interpretation and application of the rules, and the scoring of positions, shall be NON-LITIGABLE. All participants further covenant and agree that they will NOT initiate any of legal action against Lawrenceburg Speedway, the promoter, and officials to challenge such decision, to seek monetary damages, to seek injunctive relief, or to seek any kind of legal remedy.

Track officials may cancel a race if dangerous or unsafe conditions arise. If the race is called because of an accident or weather, the payoff will be based on the last completed green flag lap. All cars involved in the final caution will be scored at the end of the last completed lap. For the race to be considered official, at least 50% of the scheduled number of laps must have been completed.

If all of the preliminary races or part of the features have been completed and the weather forces the program to be cancelled, there will be no "rainout". Make-up features will be run in the subsequent nights, if possible, and no new cars will be added to the field. Also, if all of the preliminaries are completed on day on of a two-day show, no new cars will be able to compete on the second day in a consy or feature, unless they were in the pit area on the first day.

If the races are cancelled prior to the completion of all of the preliminary events, a "rain out" will be declared. Your tickets will be good for any race remainder of the year (excluding WOO events or Night of Destruction) at face value. If an increased admission event occurs in one of the following weeks, you may use your rain check and pay the difference. No refunds will be given for the difference in the ticket prices in either case.

Exception: If feature event(s) is/are cancelled and the show has been considered a complete show, and no rain date will be utilized, the total feature purse may be split equally among the qualified drivers, if 50% or more of the feature has not been completed. Officials also reserves the right to choose a scenario that best fits the interest of Lawrenceburg Speedway, which may or may not include a make-up night or refunding of all gate receipts.
