2. The promoter reserves the right to refuse entry into the pit area or grandstands for any reason. 

3. All racing vehicles must have mufflers.  If the muffler gets knocked off, falls off, or becomes loud during a race, you will be black-flagged. Pull to the infield immediately. This means if your muffler comes off anytime from the start of the race to exiting the track at the end of the race, you will be disqualified. If your car becomes loud and you pull to the infield on your own, you will not be disqualified, you will receive last place points.

4. All persons admitted to the pit area of an event under the age of 18 must have an Arkoma Speedway LLC  Minor’s Release signed by both parents.

Everyone admitted into pit area must stop at pit gate and sign a release before entering pit area. All tools and equipment must accompany racecar and/or tow car. ATVs are permitted in the pit area. No one under 16 years of age will be allowed to ride on ATV on the premises.  Any violation pertaining to an ATV will result in the banning of that ATV immediately. 

7. No persons except track officials will be allowed in the infield. 

8. The car/driver combination entered for the race program cannot change once they have pulled on the track to start the heat race. Starting positions are determined by point average, with the highest point average starting on the back of heat races and feature races. Drivers appearing for the first time as a new driver in any division will be placed at the rear of his/her heat and feature races for the first three race programs. If it’s your first-time racing Arkoma Speedway for a weekly race you will start at the back of the heat and feature for that racing program, the next time you come you will start by point average. Judgment of ability and physical condition of drivers to compete will be made by track officials. They can then assign him/her a position to the rear of events until such time that the driver’s skill allows him/her to start in his/her point average position. 

9. Race line-ups will be posted on the pit board. No delay between races will be tolerated. Cars may not scratch from the original line-up of any race to start in another race. Every car that signs in will be placed in a feature unless scratched or disqualified for the night. If a car scratches from line-up, cars will move straight up NO crisscross unless three cars in a row gets knocked out and cannot restart and needs to realign. This includes a restart of 1st lap. 

10. The entry ramp from the pit area to the track will be closed during each race.  No other cars will be permitted to enter the track for that particular race. It will remain closed during the race. Must go to infield until race is over, absolutely no exceptions.

11. The pole car shall set a pace as determined by the flagman’s signals for the start and all cars will go by it. The front row will be side by side at the white line in turn four, if you jump or lag back you will be penalized, no questions asked and no warnings. At the start of a race, no car will overtake or pass another car before the green flag is thrown; this includes the restart after a yellow or red flag condition. On restarts, after one lap or more has been completed, cars will go between cone and wall. A cone will be placed on front and rear straight always during restart pace laps. If any car passes inside either cone they will go to the rear of the field. There will be no passing of cars until you pass the cone. If you hit the cone or pass a car, you will be put to the rear of the field. If you hit the cone or pass a car a second time will result in disqualification. The cone rule DOES NOT apply to the leader. If the leader hits the cone the start will not go, if the leader hits the cone a second time he will be placed on the rear. All starts will be nose to tail. 

12. Spins or tangles occurring in the first lap in any event will call for a complete restart. If you are stopped when a yellow comes out or if the yellow is thrown for you, you go tailback. 

13. If a race is stopped after the first lap is completed, the cars will be restarted in single file in the same position that they crossed the finish line during the last full green flag lap. Cars causing the restart will go to the back of the line-up. 

14. When the yellow flag comes out, the lead car will immediately slow to parade speed. Noncompliance can cause the black flag to be given to the lead car for disqualification from that event. Passing another car under yellow flag conditions will cause disqualification. 

15. During a yellow flag, cars cannot be worked on. If you get out of your car you cannot continue to race in that event. If you leave the racetrack at any time you may not re-enter that race. A closed red means the cars cannot be worked on by anybody including the driver. 

16. If a car spins out by itself once during a race causing the yellow flag, he/she can continue to race, but must start on the back of the pack. If a car spins out more than once by itself, he/she is finished for that race event. However, if he/she is touched by another car, he/she can continue. In spins involving two or more cars in the same incident, all cars get to restart but must line up at the back of the pack. 

17. If your car develops problems, causing it to slow down, do not move to the outside of the track. Move to the inside of the track towards the infield. 

18. All cars that require assistance due to a mishap that caused the yellow or red flag must go to the back of the pack on the restart if they are able to race. On realignments after a yellow or red flag, if a car pulls out of line for any reason, he/she goes to the back of the pack. Drivers disqualified during the heat race will start scratch in their next feature. 

19. Cars that have left the racing surface and entered the infield may re-enter the track on the straight-aways only. Re-entering in the corners will cause the car to be disqualified. Cars must be on the racing surface when crossing the start/finish line to be scored for that lap! This call is made by the scorers and will not be questioned! 

20. The race is over when the lead car receives the checkered flag and further scoring will discontinue as soon as each car has crossed the finish line one time. Finishing positions will be determined by the number of laps completed. Any feature race shall be subject to being called after 2/3 of scheduled laps or 20 minutes elapsed time during that particular race. This is to be done at the promoter and/or track official’s discretion. 

21. Any person sustaining injury while on the track facilities must report the injury to a track official immediately. Any person entering a hospital with such an injury must advise Arkoma Speedway of their intent before entering the hospital. 

22. Drivers who drink alcoholic beverages while participating in a racing program will be suspended for one calendar year from the date of the offense.  This will not be tolerated! 
No exceptions.

23. If you stop to argue with a track official or flagman on the track, you will be put in the back or disqualified! 

24. Packing the track will be done by track officials.

25. When a red flag/red light appears, all cars are to stop immediately. Do not drive to a place on the track for convenience. You may not start or drive your car under power while the red light is on – you will be disqualified. The flagman will turn the yellow and red on together when a red flag line-up is ready. All cars will proceed to the cone on the back straight and stop until the red goes out. 

26. Once the yellow light is on and cars are lining up, if you stop or require any assistance, you will be placed to the rear of the line-up. On initial starts, once the yellow light goes off and the race is ready to start if you stop for any reason you will go to the rear. 

27. You may stop during a yellow for safety reasons only! You will retain your position! Safety meaning seat belts, helmet, ECT. Or something on the track. If your car requires any help or work, you will be sent to the back! If your throttle is stuck, a track official will try to assist you.  You cannot stop and have your car checked for any other reason or you will go to the back! 

28. All cars finishing in the top five must stop at the scales and weigh. If you are light, the car and driver may pull to the side untouched by crew and reweigh a second time. If you are 1 lb. light you will be disqualified for that race. It is your responsibility to check your car to track scales. Anyone finishing in the top five and does not weigh will be disqualified for that race. Absolutely no one in tech barn during weigh except track officials.

29. Any car that is in the infield and deliberately pulls out on the track and stops to bring out a caution will go to the pits.
