RAIN OUT POLICY

Rain delays are not considered a rainout. Until a decision has been made by management that an event has been canceled or called, everyone must consider themselves on rain delay and not a cancellation… no credits will be given until this decision has been made. At that time, the policy below stands.

Bracket Races and Feature Races:  No Cash Refunds.  If a rainout occurs before eliminations begin, pit crew rain checks will be issued.  Car and driver credits will be issued to racers.  Spectator rain checks will not be issued if two hours or more have elapsed from the scheduled gate opening for the event.

Once eliminations begin, in the event of a rainout, the race will be considered as completed.  Points will be issued to racers as of the last completed round.  All purse money will be divided evenly among those racers still in competition in each class.  There will be no make-up of a rained out race.  Spectator rain checks will not be issued.

For non-money classes, car and driver credits will be issued if the rainout occurs before the first round of eliminations begin.  Once eliminations begin, in the event of rainout, the race will be considered as completed.  No credits of any type (i.e. car/driver/ pit crew, spectator) will be issued.

Test and Tune:  No Cash Refunds.  No rain checks will be issued once two hours has elapsed from the scheduled gate opening for the event.  Otherwise, rain checks will be issued and are good for the next scheduled event only.  In the event of a rain out, no money will be awarded for fastest car, fastest truck or fastest bike.

Feature Races (Spectator/Pit Crew Only):  No Cash Refunds.  No spectator or pit crew rain checks will be issued once feature cars have completed the first round of eliminations.  Otherwise, rain checks will be issued and are good for the makeup date only.

 

BREAK POLICY

  1. Only 3 break passes will be given in a season.
  2. Upon returning with a break pass, driver must pay spectator fee.
  3. Break passes will not be given once eliminations have started.
