The green flag is waved by the starter to indicate the beginning of a race. It is waved after a caution to tell the racers that the race has been restarted. The green flag also is an indication that the course is clear of any obstacles or debris.
The yellow flag is the signal for caution. Karts stop racing, quads and bikes race under a yellow flag.
When waved by the flagman the white flag indicates that the racer is entering the last lap of practice, qualifying or a race. It is waved continuously to all racers following the leader until the leader approaches the finish line.
The checkered flag is waved by the starter to indicate the finish of the race or practice session. The checkered flag is waved for all finishers. The race winner sometimes will collect the checkered flag for a victory lap around the track.
When a race is "red flagged" it is stopped due to some condition that has made the track unraceable. As soon as a red flag is shown, racers must come to a stop as quickly and safely as possible.
A rolled black flag pointed at a racer, is a warning. (The flagman may or may not give a warning.) A waving black flag means for that racer to exit the track. It could be for a variety of reasons, from unsafe conditions to unsafe racing. If the racer ignores a black flag, loss of points and/or disqualification may occur.
Hot laps are for the racer to ride around the race track without actually competing for a position or any other recording of performance. This gives the racer a chance to see if they need to make any adjustments before the heat races begin
Heats are preliminary races for each class, 6 laps for pee wee and amateur, 8 laps for pro. During registration each competitor will be assigned a pill number. That number determines the starting position for the heat race. The heat races will then determine the starting race position in the main events. Points will be given in both heat races and main events.
Intermission is the time to take a break, get something to eat, shop at the booths or chat with the racers. During this time, workers are making the necessary preparations for the main event. We try to keep this as short as possible, however sometimes we run into obstacles that may take us longer, please be patient with us. There will be times that we have some entertainment. Our special races will take place during intermission as well.
is a 6 lap race for cash that will be ran before the main event. A class will be announced at the drivers meeting and It will be up to that class to appoint someone to sell the 50/50 tickets and return the $ to the registration booth during intermission. The winner of our dash for cash will get 50% and the lucky person holding the winning ticket will get the other 50% of the cash. Tickets are $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00. Make sure you have your tickets before intermission is over.
Mains are a 10 for pee wee and amateur, 12 for pro, lap race that is held for each class. The starting positions have been determined by the heat races. It is the longest race in the program. Points will be given based on how the racer finishes. A trophy will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place amateur winners. Pro winners will receive a payout.
Please cheer for the racers, they need to hear you! They put their hearts and souls into racing and want to put on a great show for you!
