You may have someone draw a pill for you if the driver is unable to draw his or her self. If you call ahead and have a pill drawn for you and you fail to show up for that event, you will automatically be required to start scratch the next time you show up.
B. As a general rule there will usually be an intermission, but length will be determined by the RACE DIRECTOR depending on time constraints. During the intermission, the first feature will be lined up by the PIT STEWARD. Track management reserves the right to run the features early in the program if deemed necessary.
C. The preliminary races will be lined up according to the pill draw. All late arrivals will start at the tail to fill out each preliminary race evenly if possible. The feature race will be lined up according to the finishing order of the preliminary races Winner of the first preliminary race will start first in the feature, winner of the second preliminary race will start second and so on in descending order).D. Only one pill is allowed to be drawn for one car
E. Every effort will be made to sequence the races in a manner that will not require a car to run two consecutive events, but if that happens, you will be expected to participate in both.
F. Track officials reserve the right to place any late arriving car or a car that has not drawn a pill BEFORE 7:00 at the tail of any preliminary race.
G. The number of pills drawn for each division will determine:
1. The number of preliminary races.

Hot lap lineup and number of laps is subject to change but as a normal will start with Mini Wedge, 4-Cylinders, Pure Stock, Mod Lite, Super Sport and Modified. IT IS EXPECTED FOR YOU TO BE IN THE PIT CHUTE AND READY TO GO AT THE TIME YOUR DIVISION GOES ON THE TRACK, WE WILL NOT HOLD UP THE PROGRAM FOR HOT LAPS!!! If you want your hot lap session, you need to be aware of the approximate time your division goes out, if you donít get to hot lap because of tardiness, it is your loss and the officials will not be held liable. Our Race Program starts at 8:00 and we will make a conscious effort to start on time.

NOTE: After the lead car reaches the third turn on the parade lap (coming to green) no cars will be allowed to enter the track for that event. Any cars entering the track prior to the third turn, start in scratch position.
