4. Qualifying & Starts
DURING QUALIFYING THERE IS TO BE NO TALKING UNTIL SESSION IS OVER OR ALL CARS
Once Qualifying has completed we will not restart the server if a driver fails
to make it then he will be awarded last place points.
There may be 1 restart if 2 or more cars are taken out in the first 5 laps. Once
we hit lap 10 no restarts. All Restarts will come via a vote if the
majority votes yes then a restart will be granted.
5. Cautions &
No racing back to the line when yellow flies
unless there are 10 laps or less to go.
On yellow pace laps you should stagger in line. Leader takes low line and next
car behind takes high line and so forth.

The Green flag starts the race not the race leader!!!
No passing cars in your
line until the backstretch, unless the car in front of you
gives permission to do so or the car directly in front of you
spins his tires and gets out of shape.
You are allowed to change lanes after the Start Finish line as
long as you are not cutting off another driver as you move
into their lane. Once the race is within 10 Laps to go this
rule doesn't apply.
If you are found to be switching lanes illegally or cutting off another driver
to advance your position you will receive a black flag.
If you are off pace or heavily damaged you must start End of Longest line to
prevent wrecks on restarts.
Double file restarts - The leader will get to choose which line he wants
to restart in. The 2nd place will take opposite spot, everyone else will line up
as follows odd number positions on inside even number positions on outside. We
will stagger and line about to the door of the car beside you offsetting the
stagger about a half car in length. Lap cars will have to line up behind lead
lap cars for restarts.
7. Luck Dog &
The Lucky Dog driver is the 1st car scored 1 lap
down and not on pit road at the time of yellow.

If you are the Lucky Dog do the following.
1.) Catch up to the field under caution Stay in line and pit with lap cars 2nd
2.) On exit of pit road announce the Lucky dog is coming low and all cars on
track will merge to the high line.
3.) Pass all lead lap cars on the bottom line and catch back up to the field and
line up behind the nearest lead lap car passing any lap cars there might be.
4.) Once the green flag drops an admin will clear the Black Flag you receive for

Wave around rule - If you are a lap car opting to take the wave around you must
be in position to do so. This means if the leaders pit and you are lap(s) down
and stay out putting you in front of the leaders as the pits cycle under caution

to pit until the next caution. The game will black flag you but call out you

around without the admins telling you to do so.
Wave around cars will have to start tail end of the line behind all cars
including lap down cars. All wave around cars will line up behind any eoll cars
8. Self Spins
and Connection Issues
If you cause a caution you must call it out and
own up to it. If it is unclear who is to blame it is up to the admins to decide
who's at fault and move the driver(s) to rear of field for restart.
If you bring out a caution you must restart end of the longest line. You will be
asked to pit 2nd time by with lap cars and speed on pit road. Not doing so will

The 2nd time you will not receive any laps back.
The 3rd time please stay disconnected or stay off the track.
If you are more laps down than there are laps left you must start End of Longest
Line to allow lead lap cars to race it out on restarts.
