2016 “Sportsman” DIVISION
The “NEW” Division is designed to allow the competition of many different variations of stock cars which are/were raced at most local short tracks in Michigan/Wisconsin and surrounding areas. The most common classes of cars are typically known as Sportsman, Street/Super/ Factory/Hobby/Pure Stock, and Slammers. This division is designed for all types of race cars/trucks to be equally competitive and budget friendly.
1. All competing cars may have qualifying, heat, and feature race. Cars will line up by the position in which they qualify. Fastest cars will line up to the rear of the field.
2. All competing cars must abide by the 18.000 second time rule. Any cars to break out of the 18.000 second time slot will be sent to the rear the the lead lap cars under green via raceceiver. Second breakout will result in a stop in scoring and be scored at the rear of the field accordingly. All cars who break out and need to fall to the rear of the field must pull to the bottom and to fall to the rear of the field.
3.Breakouts will not be disputed or appealed.
4. Due to the fact our timing equipment is old and sometimes has issues cars that may not be timed for a lap or two maybe Given a courtesy lap or laps at the discretion of the board. If the transponder does not work at all through the duration of the race the car will be scored last.
5. All sportsman cars will qualify one lap. They will take the green as they pass the flag stand. There's will not be a warm up lap.
6. The fastest qualifier will be the car closest to 18.00. 18.000 can be fast time.
7. Cars will be inverted fast in the rear slowest in the front.
8. Cars that break out during qualifying will run at the rear of the field behind the fast qualifiers.
9. Cars that do not qualify will be in the very back. Qualifying points will be distributed conventionally. Cars that break out during qualifying will receive points and be lined up by margin of break out. Example: car (A) turns 17.5 and car (B) turns 17.0. Car (B) lines up behind car (A) and so forth. Car (A) will also receive more points.
10. Anybody caught with any kind of a modification to deceive that timing system or transponder this includes GPS will be disqualified and lose all points for the night and previously earned to that point in the season.
11. Drivers must take 1 cool down lap.
12. Winner will take victory lap!
The most important rule is this: Any car that is deemed too radical and too much outside of the rules of typical stock car classes (by components or speed) that can be found competing at various other area tracks will not be allowed. With that said, the rules for this series are fairly open, but will be controlled by Norway Speedway/DCRA officials if necessary.
