2014 TRACK PROCEDURES
2.1.1 Race Decisions
All decisions by FRRC Officials involving track procedures are final, and non-appealable. The
FRRC officers have the right to experiment with new procedures to better the show, provided
it is communicated to the teams first.
2.1.2 Rain Outs
FRRC Officers will consult with the track owner to determine if the Event will be postponed.
In the event of a rain out prior to the opening of the pit gate, information can be obtained by
calling the race track. The track phone number is 1 (920) 766-5577.
In the event of a rain out after the pit gates are open, all heat races and dashes, on both tracks,
must be completed in order to receive points and purse. Completed races will receive full
points and purse. Uncompleted races will receive total points for the race and one half of the
purse for the race, divided equally among the race cars. Cars that would have transferred into the feature by means of their finishing position in the Semi-Feature, will be paid for the Semi- Feature if the Feature is rained out before the cars take the one to go signal to start the race.
2.1.3 Weigh In
Any race car under the allowable weight is subject to disciplinary action. Penalties will be imposed in accordance with Section 4 – Penalties. If a car does not meet minimum/maximum weight requirements on their first attempt to scale they will receive only one additional attempt to re-scale the car before they are determined to be in violation of the rules.
Random weight checks may be conducted at any time. Weights will be determined by the track scale, which is considered official. Crew members may NOT jack car prior to scaling and tech inspection. DQ and fine will result.
All heat race and dash winners must weigh their car after the race. The top five finishers in the
Late Model, Super Late Model, Super Stock and Sizzlin 4 semi feature and feature race must weigh their cars immediately after the race, plus any other designated cars.
2.1.4 Order of Events
As posted nightly at the Pit Office and at the Scale.
Wisconsin Sport Trucks, 4 cylinders and Super Stocks will receive two qualifying lap, which may be done in group qualifying sessions. If a driver receives the green or white flags during qualifying, the lap will be considered complete.
A driver may not wave off or disallow qualifying time. In the event of duplicate official laps,
the car having the duplicate qualifying time first will receive the highest qualifying position.
In the event of a duplicate official lap, the car having the fastest average time of the night will be used to break the tie. If BOTH LAPS are identical, the car having the duplicate qualifying time first will receive the highest qualifying position.
Late Model, and Super Late Model qualifying order will be determined by prior year’s SLM points champions car number and will be incremented by 10 each week. If a car number is required to go first 2 nights in a row, that car has the option of going later in the sequence. Drivers will present their car for qualifying in car number sequence and will be allowed
two consecutive laps. Cars breaking the qualifying line or the pre-tech line before qualifying will only receive one lap. A break in the qualifying line is constituted by not having a car in the staging box when the car timing receives the white flag, or failure to present a car within two minutes of the initial qualifying start time.
Late Models and Super Late Models will receive two consecutive qualifying laps. If a driver
receives the green or white flags during qualifying, the lap(s) will be considered complete. A
driver may not wave off or disallow qualifying times. The fastest lap will be the official lap. In the event of a duplicate official lap, the car having the fastest average time of the night will be used to break the tie. If BOTH LAPS are identical, the car having the duplicate qualifying time first will receive the highest qualifying position.
A driver that spins out on both laps, or has mechanical problems, will be positioned into all
races and must start all races in the last row. Past average qualifying time is not eligible for
qualifying points and may not be used to earn a position in the fast dash or feature race.
If the timing system fails, or weather eliminates qualifying, current point standings will be
used for drivers who have competed in 65% of the current year’s FRRC Events. If this occurs prior to the Red race, the previous years final point standings will be used. Drivers will not
receive qualifying points and prize money. Drivers who have not competed in 65% of the
current year’s FRRC Events will start in the last row of the heat races and semi feature or
feature race at the FRRC Officer’s discretion.
Late arrivals will receive one qualifying lap. No qualifying or late timing at intermission.

not comply, they will be black flagged. If a complete lap is not finished prior to another
caution, the scorers will go back to the original lineup prior to the last pick-a- lane procedure,

new starting position.

SECTION – 4 PENALTIES
4.1 GENERAL PROCEDURE
If a FRRC Technical Official observes, or is made aware of, a violation of the FRRC Rules, by a
Competitor, FRRC can impose an appropriate penalty.
4.2 EMERGENCY ACTION
If an act by a Competitor is determined by FRRC Officers, FRRC Technical Officials, to
threaten the orderly conduct of an Event, the FRRC Officers can take emergency action against
the Competitor. Such action may include: ejection from the racing premises; suspension from
competition; or any other action to remove the threat created by the Competitor. Examples of
conduct warranting emergency action include, but are not limited to: consumption of
alcoholic beverages in pit area before or during an event; use of illegal drugs before or during
an event; harassment, verbal abuse, or assault of any FRRC Officer, FRRC Technical Official, or
Competitor; fighting; reckless driving; and failure to obey a black flag or directions of an
