Practice Cancelled for Wednesday May 20th

Practice is cancelled for Wednesday May 20th at AMSOIL Speedway due to wet conditions.  With the cold weather the track has not dried out enough to get a practice in.  Our Track Crew will be working very hard the next three days to make sure we have a really good track on Friday May 22nd for the racing season opener.

Races Cancelled for Friday May 15th

Races are cancelled for Friday night.  Conditions remain very wet and we do not want to open up to a rutty track.  We will work hard all week to get the track ready for practice Wednesday May 20th and race Friday May 22nd.

Race (On track) Procedure:

  • Be in staging and ready with ample time and make sure your raceceiver and transponder are working
  • You will get released on your raceceiver to enter the track
  • Please enter track with caution and keep a slow pace while lined up double file right out of staging
  • The will be one complete lap under caution (pace lap) for drivers to get ready and also we can check to see if everyone’s transponder is working properly. As you come to the flag stand you will receive the one to go and caution lights will go down
  • On an original double file start the two lead cars must stay side by side and fire TOGETHER at the cone in turn 4, which is when the green will be dropped. Once the front two cars fire the rest of the field is free to race. All cars must stay in line bumper to bumper until the from two cars fire. If you jump out of line and get ahead of the car in front of you, you are jumping the start. On an original double file start, if you jump the start the caution will come out and you will be put back one row.
  • If there is a caution you will be notified on your raceceiver and the yellow will come out. When this happens we will ask that the lead cars come to the flag stand and stop with everyone else following. Once stopped at the flag stand you will be given a line up. Please do not roll forward or start moving until your number is called. When the line up is given the lead car will go to turn 2 and stop with the others following. All restarts will be delaware restarts meaning the leader will be out front with second place having the option of inside or outside. Third place will go opposite with the rest of the field following along with 4th place in 5th place out, etc. Once the full line up is given and the cause of the caution tags the rear of the field, you will be released with the caution lights going down and we will be going green that same lap. The leader will fire at the cone in turn four with everyone else firing after the leader does. If you happen to jump on a restart (not the original 2x2 start), we will continue racing and you will be docked two positions at the end of the race.
  • When the race is over the top 5 cars in all races will go the scales off of the backstretch with the rest of the field exiting off of turn two as soon as you can within reason. 
  • The next heat race that is already in staging will then be released using the same exact procedure. One complete lap with the lights going down at the flag stand, and going green that next lap.
  • After all heats and semis (if needed) are compete we are going to jump right into feature racing as long as the first feature had enough time to check the line up and get ready. The only exception to this would be if the track needs some work which will be done as quickly as possible.
  • Please be ready in staging with plenty of time to spare for your feature.
  • You will again be called onto the track on your raceceiver. Just like in the heats when you are called onto the track from staging please enter slowly and get lined up immediately. As you come to the front stretch the front row will be asked to stop in turn one with everyone else following in the proper order. This will give us a chance to check the line ups and make sure everyone is there. After the line up is good you will be released and we will go one lap under caution with the one to go being given the next time by. Just like in the heat races the front row will fire in turn 4 at the cone with everyone else following their lead. The same rules follow with the features as in the heats and once the race in complete the top five will scale and the winner will go to victory lane after being scaled.
  • Paychecks can be picked up on the grandstands side in the concession area.

 

If anyone has questions/comments/concerns please feel free to call/text me. I appreciate you all taking the time to read through this and I am looking forward to a great season.
