General Rules

Pairing
A numbered chip draw will happen during registration, giving us our initial seeds for the pro ladders that all classes will run on. In the case of classes with first (1st) round buy backs, the initial/first (1st) round will be randomly paired. If there is a bye run due to an odd number of participants then the highest seed, based on the chip draw, to not have a chance to receive a buy run from round two (2) forward will receive the round one (1) bye. Beginning with round two (2) the remaining participants will be placed on the ladder. If a bye run happens then the round one (1) bye run recipient will not have his seed altered for round two (2), but all other participants will have their seeds shifted upward to account for round one (1) losers who elect to not buy back.

Late Arrivals/Entries
Anyone arriving or attempting to enter a class after the ladder have been generated may only enter if the class is having buy backs or a losers’ bracket. In the case of buy backs, the late entrant will have to pay the class entry fee as well as a buy back fee. In the case of a losers’ bracket, the late entrant will go directly into the losers’ bracket.

Disqualifications
Track official may, at their sole discretion, disqualify a racer for braking on track rules such as contacting track barriers and/or timing equipment. Any dispute may only be lodged by the disqualified racer and must be lodged directly with the official executing the disqualification, at the time of the disqualification. If you are informed of the disqualification and leave the track surface, ie walk to your pits; you have accepted the disqualification and may no longer dispute the official’s call. In either cause, the official will have the last word. They may or may not, at their sole discretion, use various means of evidence at their disposal to further weigh their decision. They also may or may not consult other track officials, again at their sole discretion. If the disqualification is due to class rules violation as determined by a measuring device, the racer may request the measuring device be checked for fault, but the track official will, at their sole discretion, determine to a reason margin of error and factor that into their decision.

Vehicle Control
All participating vehicles must be within the sole control of the racer who entered the race as the “driver”. Vehicles may not be fully autonomously.

Changing Drivers
Driver changes are not allowed once the driver has completed first round. The only exception to this rule is if the class has a losers’ bracket. The replacement driver could be put into the losers’ bracket and participate from there.

Refund Requests
Drivers may request a refund of their class entry fees if they are unable to compete for any reason, up to and until the point that their class is called to the lanes for first round. At that point the ladder is locked in.
