2014 Rules and Class Requirements

UPDATED AS OF May 2014.  These rules apply to all MRR events held in 2014.

     The rules and/or regulations set forth herein are designed to provide for the orderly and safe conduct of racing events and to establish minimum acceptable requirements for such events. NO EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OF SAFETY SHALL RESULT FROM THE PUBLICATION OF OR THE COMPLIANCE WITH THESE RULES AND/OR REGULATIONS. They are intended as a guide for the conduct of the sport and are in no way a guarantee against injury or death to a participant, spectator or official.
     These rules are for the fun, safe and orderly conduct of racing and are meant to act as guidelines so that everyone is treated fairly and without bias. The signature of the participant on the registration form signifies that person's agreement to abide by all track rules as presented. IF YOU THINK THAT A MODIFICATION OR ACTION IS ILLEGAL, THEN IT PROBABLY IS. Any violation of any rule will be dealt with as promptly and as fairly as the track management and officials possibly can.
     Violators of any rule may be subject to any or all of the following disciplinary actions: SUSPENSION, DISQUALIFICATION, FORFEITURE OF PRIZE MONIES, EXPULSION FROM THE EVENT, BARRING FROM FUTURE RACING EVENTS.
     THE RULING OF TRACK OFFICIALS IS FINAL IN ALL MATTERS.

GENERAL RULES OF RACING FOR ALL PARTICIPANTS
1. NO ALCOHOL IN THE PIT AREA BEFORE OR DURING RACING.  
This includes not only the pit parking area, but also the pit viewing area.  More specifically, the trees adjacent to the pits.  Save the alcohol until racing is concluded and trophies are awarded.   This applies to all participants, their pit crew and anyone accompanying them into the pit area.  No alcohol is allowed through the pit gates or into the pit area before or during racing.  TRACK OFFICIALS AND MANAGEMENT RESERVE THE RIGHT TO INSPECT ALL VEHICLES FOR ALCOHOL.
2. NO ALCOHOL MAY BE CONSUMED BY ANY PARTICIPANT PRIOR TO OR DURING RACING. Any racer with alcohol on their breath will be subject to disciplinary actions listed above. If there is any suspicion that a racer has been drinking, an alcohol-detecting saliva test may be administered at the discretion of track officials.
3. No driver will be permitted to run if he/she is determined to be incapable of driving safely.
4. Un-sportsmanlike conduct by any participant is prohibited and will result in disciplinary actions being taken.
5. DRIVERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR PIT CREW. They can get you disqualified or more for one of them breaking any rule. Any un-sportsmanlike conduct of a pit crew member is prohibited and will not be tolerated. Please make sure they are aware of this.
6. NO RACING IN THE PIT AREA. 'Just seeing how it runs' is not permitted. If space permits, a testing area will be designated.
7. ANY RECKLESS OR CARELESS DRIVING ON OR OFF THE TRACK WILL NOT BE PERMITTED. Anyone driving in a manner that endangers any person or any person's vehicle will be subject to disciplinary actions by track officials.
8. If your vehicle breaks down or gets stuck on the track, do not exit the vehicle while others are still competing on the track. This is for your own safety.
9. All racing vehicles, including ATV's, are to be confined to the pit area before and during racing when not on the track.
10. Private cars are not allowed in the pit area. If you are part of the pit crew, either go in with the race vehicle or go through the general admission gate and walk to the pit area.
11. One driver per class per vehicle.
12.
A driver that is registered in a class and breaks down may use another person's vehicle as long as the vehicle meets the class requirements and is not registered in that class for the day.  The vehicle must also be the same style of race vehicle so not to gain an unfair advantage.
13. The first 2 racers of the day (after ATV's) will have the opportunity for a rerun since they are the ones breaking in the track. Both of the vehicles must do their rerun at the same time.
14. Open class trucks will have the option of making a 2nd run during the day. (Depending on the event, other classes may also have this opportunity.) The better of the two times will be used in final scoring. A disqualification (DQ) in one run for un-sportsmanlike conduct, reckless driving or being greatly off-course could result in a DQ for the class. Considerations will be made for jumping the start and other minor infractions.
15. A. All race vehicles will be tech inspected prior to registration and racing. Without being inspected, you will not be allowed to register or race.

      B. Helmet must be with you at time of inspection.

      C. Hood and doors must be opened at time of inspection.

      D. If a vehicles modifications are expected to exceed what has been stated, a test run will be required 
16. All race vehicles will be registered prior to racing beginning. If tow vehicle breaks down on the way to the event or something similar, special consideration may be made if track officials are informed of the situation.
17. Any vehicle considered overkill will be moved up to the next available class whose standards are met. Vehicles can be voted out of a class at the drivers' meeting prior to the event by positive proof of overkill (i.e. excessive horsepower, large gaps in lap time at prior events, etc.).
18. If for any reason a vehicle is thought to be unsafe prior to or during the event, any track official or member of management can pull the vehicle's number. It will not be allowed to race until repairs are made and class requirements are met.
19. Special considerations will be made in the case of a hybrid vehicle (i.e. a Gremlin body on a Bronco frame and drive train). These vehicles will be placed where they will be most competitive considering engine, tires and other modifications.
20. If there is a problem with how the tech officials inspected and qualified your vehicle, please take the issue up with the tech official or track management in a civil manner. Do not yell. Do not blame registration personnel for a determination that the tech officials and track management make.
21. Age standards and requirements:
     A. No one under age 14 is allowed in pit area during racing.
     B. No one under age 16 is permitted to race. Proof of age is required.
     C. Participants under age 18 must have a parent or legal guardian sign a minor release/waiver form prior to registration.
22. Protests will be handled as follows:
     A. If anyone has a protest, be sportsmanlike in bringing it to the attention of the track officials and management. It will then be handled to the best of the officials' ability and in accordance with track rules.
     B. Any protest made in the form of shouting, using profanity or any other un-sportsmanlike conduct will not be tolerated and will not be heard. Track officials and management may take disciplinary actions against the offender.
     C. If there is a protest, inform track officials during or directly after the class in question. Protests must be made before trophies and prize monies are presented. Valid protests may be reviewed on the videotapes available. Prize monies, trophies and points may have to be awarded by mail or at the next event if further review is needed.
23. All vehicles must stay on course (circumstances beyond the control of the driver will be considered).
     A. If a vehicle is off course with 2 tires for more than approx. 4 seconds, a 2 second penalty will be added to the vehicle time.
     B. If a vehicle is off course with 4 tires for more than approx. 2 seconds, a 4 second penalty will be added to the vehicle time.
     C. If a vehicle is off course and stops and returns to the course in approx. the same place from which it left, no penalty will be added.
     D. If a vehicle is off course with all 4 tires and misses a designated obstacle (including, but not limited to, a jump or water hole), the vehicle will be disqualified for that run.
     E. Banners are the primary markers of the track boundaries, but tires, dirt berms, trees, etc. may also be used. The striking of any such objects signifies an off course.
24. Staging, line up and starting procedures:
      A. Starting personnel will line up the vehicles at the starting line.
     B. If the light is being used RED is for staging, YELLOW is for get set, GREEN is for go.
     C. If a flag is being used, the flagman will stage, line up and send off the racers by dropping the flag.
     D. Anyone jumping the start (either green light or flag dropping) will be disqualified for that run. The light switches are on the tower, so the timers know when the light goes on. The flagman and timekeepers will make the call when a flag is used. If the racer who jumped can return to the proper starting position prior to the green light coming on or flag dropping, then the race will continue as normal.
     E. Starting position will be determined by one of two factors:
          a. The first person signed up in a class starts in the right lane, second person in the left lane. NOTE: Right lane is racers' right side. If racing is not side-by-side, racers will run in order they signed up at registration.
          b. The staging personnel or flagman may line up competitive vehicles to run side-by-side to improve the racing.
If a vehicle drops out of a class due to problems, the lane in which you were to run could change at any time. Do not attempt to argue with the person lining you up.
     F. If you race in more than one class, we will attempt to start you in the lane opposite of the one you ran before.
     G. We will make every attempt to give racers a reasonable amount of time to make repairs so that you may run. Let us know at the tower so that we may bring up the next racer.
     H. Anyone deliberately delaying coming to the start line in order to run alone (with hopes of gaining a better time with no one else on the track), will be disqualified.
     I. If someone or something being on the track is the fault of track management and/or officials and hinders your time, you may request a re-run. This is a track official's decision. Please bring request to the tower.
     J. The order of racing for the classes will be posted to the best ability of track officials. Know what class you are registered to race in and be there when it is called to the staging area. If the order is posted, you should know where you're racing.
     K. We will attempt to stage all vehicles for a class at the same time, but the final responsibility rests on the driver knowing what is going on and getting to the staging and starting area.
     L. If the class in which you register completes racing and the next class begins, you will not be allowed to make-up that run. You will receive a Did Not Start (DNS).
25. Timing procedures:
     A. Hill Climb times start when wheel movement begins (after the flag is dropped or green light comes on) and ends when the rear tires crest the hill.
     B. Single mud bog and single drag racing times start when wheel movement begins (after the flag is dropped or green light comes on) and ends when the front of vehicle crosses the finish line.
     C. Side-by-side obstacle course and side-by-side Drag Racing times start when the light goes green or the flag drops.
     D. Track officials will attempt to post and/or announce times. Due to protests, error or reruns, the posted times could change and effect the outcome of the class.
     E. All times announced are unofficial to allow for protests, errors or reruns. Times become official upon receipt of the awarding of trophies and prize monies for the class. (See general rule #22)
     F. Remember that the view from the tower where the timers are is different than that of other places at the track.
26. When a stop line is provided leaving the racetrack area and proceeding to the pits, the vehicle MUST come to a complete stop. Failure to comply may result in adverse actions, to include but not limited to, disqualification from the racing class and forfeiture of prize monies earned.
27. If a racer, pit crew or spectator sees something unsafe on the track (i.e. a piece off of a vehicle) that the track officials have failed to notice, please inform a track official as soon as possible to get the object removed for safer racing.
28. Mud bog and Drag racing vehicle specs are the same as those for obstacle course vehicles in the same class unless listed separately.
29. Full prize money payout may be given out only if a class is full. A full class is one that has at least 5 vehicles registered in it.
30. Towing of broken or stuck vehicles:
     A. Track crew will hook to whatever is sticking out and looks secure or will push the vehicle. (See race vehicle requirements #14 below.)
     B. After racing is complete, exit your vehicle and hook to it yourself if there is a certain way you want it done.
     C. Do not yell at or argue with track officials and crew as this can result in DQ or other disciplinary actions.  

    D. Do not attempt to move vehicle  till told to do so. Prior too, and after chain is hooke.
31. A vehicle may register to compete in only one (1) hill climb class. Officials will determine class at time of tech inspection.
32. Some leniency in vehicle requirements may be shown for first-time racers at a MRR event as long as there is no great threat to the driver's safety or the safety of other competitors. However, if the individual in question plans to continue racing with MRR, changes will have to be made to the vehicle before the next event.
33. NO unsecured weight will be allowed. Cinder blocks and similar objects chained down will not be considered secure and must be removed.

34. A driver who places 1st or 2nd in Pro-stock points for the season in 2 consecutive years, must move out of Pro-stock.  
35. While racing, observe the track officials and lights for any caution signs, such as a waving flag or blinking red light. These may be signals to stop racing for safety reasons.
36. All racers must be fully clothed shirts, shoes and jeans. Modified, Super Modified and Open drivers must wear an S.F.I. approved fire suit (see 15 D below).

MUDDY RUN RACEWAY POINTS SYSTEM
For Pro-stock, Modified, Super Modified, Open

     A points number is chosen and assigned to the racer at the beginning of the racing season. A one-time fee of $10.00 is paid for the retention of the number for the season. For each race day that the racer wants to race for points, a $5.00 fee is paid at registration in addition to the regular registration fee(s). This $5.00 makes the racer eligible for points in all qualified classes that he/she races that day. All monies collected from these fees goes into the Drivers' Points Fund for end of the season awards and prize monies.  A driver who places 1st or 2nd in Pro-stock point for 2 consecutive years must move out of that class.
     It does not matter if all of the racers in a class are racing for points or not, you get the points for the place that you take overall vs. points and non-points racers. If disqualified in one class' race, then all points in that class are forfeited for that day. If asked to leave the track, all points for the day in all classes are forfeited. If changes are made to the vehicle during the course of the season and these changes disqualify the vehicle from a class that you had been earning points in, those points will not move up to another class with you. The points awarded are non-transferable between classes.

GOOD OL' BOYS POINTS
     Registering for a points number for the season costs $10.00. This is paid as soon as you get your permanent number. For every race that you want to compete for points in, the cost is $5.00 for that day. This money is all put into the Drivers' Points Fund, which pays for the high points awards at the end of the racing season. Numbers will be assigned when they are paid for, beginning at 50 and continuing upwards. Numbers must be displayed above the driver's door and be at least 10 inches high. These numbers will be assigned in the order in which you sign up. No arguments over the number assignments.
     For every day that the $5 is paid, you will receive points even if you are unable to complete the heat and/or feature (see below). More points will be awarded for the places earned in the feature only (see below). If there is a consolation race, there will be no extra points awarded to those racers. The number of registered racers at the event will determine the number of heat(s) held that day. The number of racers moving on from the heat(s) to the feature will also depend on the amount of registered racers. This will be announced at the drivers' meeting prior to racing.

For more information on the points system, paper copies are available during race day.
