General Rules

The following rules are to clarify misconceptions and procedural policies at Skyline Speedway:

---All cars must take the green in their heat/dash to run the C-Main, B-Main, or A-Main
---If there are 31 cars in any division there will be one 15-lap, 16-car B-main.
    Transfers will make up the 18-Car feature
    If there are over 31 cars in any division, and thus over 16 cars per B-Main,
    there will be two smaller B-mains. Transfers will make up the 18-Car feature.
---In 2010 there will be NO Sprint car dash. Sprint cars will all run heats and
    transfer through the heats. Fast time will draw pill 0-6 for the inversion.
---ALL POINTS WILL GO WITH THE CAR IN 2010. If a driver changes
    cars in a season, it must have the same number he started the season with.
---All classes will receive show-up points assuming an effort is made to take the
    green in qualifying or hot laps.
---All Races will start with the flagman and the drop of the green flag.


The promoter and/or track officials reserve the right to reject any car and/or driver without recourse. Only suitable cars will be approved for competition. All cars and drivers are subject to inspection at any time by tech inspector and/or promoter. No car deemed unsafe or illegal by a track official or tech inspector will be allowed on the track at any time. All illegal parts will be confiscated. If a car has been found illegal, upon his next visit to the speedway, the car will be teched prior to the racing events.

The driver and owner assumes responsibility for all actions of pit crew, sponsors, and themselves at all times and shall be the sole spokespersons for the car and crew in any and all matters pertaining to the race and with officials in charge. If the driver is also the owner, only he/she will be the sole spokesperson.

Anyone leaving his or her pit area to go to another pit area to cause a disturbance may be suspended by track management for whatever period of time is deemed necessary.

Firearms and any type of weapons are absolutely prohibited at all times on the grounds of Skyline Speedway, as the facility is private property. At any time, the display of any type of weapon or threat of bodily harm may result in permanent suspension and arrest.

Any driver committing unnecessary contact, harassment, or using any driving tactic that is considered dangerous by the flagman or track official will be deemed rough driving. This rule applies to hot laps, preliminary events, and features. Reprimands for rough driving are covered in the Rules of Procedures. (Note: Remember, threats of retaliation on the speedway could be considered assault with a deadly weapon and grounds for prosecution.)

Absolutely no fighting for any reason. Drivers, owners, crew members, etc. fighting will be subject to a suspension.

No person signing into the pit area shall drink intoxicants and/or use narcotics during a racing event. Any driver or crew member who arrives at Skyline Speedway under the influence of intoxicants and/or narcotics will be denied participation in the events of that day. No exception to the rule. Skyline Speedway reserves the right to check teams’ hauler, trailer, or race car for narcotics and/or intoxicants at any time. Any participant suspected of narcotic and/or intoxicant use may be subject to testing. Refusal of testing may result in expulsion or suspension from Skyline Speedway. Any injured competitor that was determined to be legally intoxicated will result in a denial of insurance benefits.

No driver, car owner, or crew member will have any claim for damages or expenses against the promoter or any track official by reasons of disqualification, damages to the car, or injuries to the driver. All parties agree that the track grounds are considered safe if they take part in the event. It is the duty of all drivers, car owners, and crew members to bring to the attention of track officials any unsafe equipment, practices, or any rules infraction of any car or driver. The driver further acknowledges that the driver is aware that auto racing involves risks and that by competing in an event, the driver assumes these risks with full awareness and knowledge

An approved racing helmet with goggles or face shield, flame retardant uniform with gloves (highly recommended), and competition quick-release harness with shoulder straps must be worn and be fastened at all times while on the track or in the pits. A full-face helmet is highly recommended (Snell 1995 Recommended). Sprint Cars will not be pushed off unless the driver is wearing a helmet and are fully suited-the same goes for any car under power.

Excessive speeding in the pit area will not be tolerated and will be subject to a fine.

All required emergency personnel and flagman must be present before hot laps or competition takes place on the track.

It is highly recommended that drivers are not to get out of their cars on the race track until safety crews arrive or unless there is an extreme emergency. Any driver that does so to argue or discuss the race with the officials will be scored last and may be disqualified for the night or suspended according to the decision of the officials.

No one is permitted on the race track unless authorized. Anyone who does so may be penalized from the pit area for a minimum of one week.

Owners of the ATV’s are responsible for their use and all injuries that could occur. ATV’s are not permitted in the grandstand area.

No cars will be fueled at the fuel pumps. Fuel will be purchased in approved containers.

All teams will be responsible for the proper disposal of their used motor oil, grease, or any other lubricants, coolants, or substances that may be harmful to the environment.

Anyone found contaminating the track with these materials will be fined $1,000, and will also have to pay to have any contamination cleaned up to the OEPA specifications. Failure to comply with this will result in prosecution and suspension.

All teams are responsible for their tires. Do not leave unwanted tires laying around and expect the track to clean up for you.
