Each Pit must have at least two (2) 10 lb. fire extinguishers readily available to use in case of an emergency. The Tech Team will make spot inspections at each event to make sure every team is complying with this rule. Please note every rule is for your safety and the safety of your friends and family.  You may have four (4) 5 lb fire extinguishers, whatever combination equals 20 lbs.

TROPHY POLICY ~ our policy is to give trophies to 33% of the winners, this is standard throughout the industry. This means 1 per 3, so you need 6 to start in a class to trophy 2nd place and 9 in a class starting to trophy 3rd place. If you ever have a question whether you trophy or not please come and ask prior to the awards presentation; we don’t want you to sit through the awards presentation and not receive a trophy. If the start number is borderline (5 started or 8 started) and you are at the awards come see me and I will trophy you; but we will not send you a certificate at a later date, this is only if you are present. Also, we only trophy what is called a PODIUM FINISH, which is 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place.
