Gate Fees: Race License includes the gate fee for the racer only; all crew members and associated personnel are required to pay the $10 admission fee at the gate.

If a race day cannot continue then all expenses will be paid, and any remaining money will be divided proportionally amongst entrants.
No race car will be allowed on the track until passed by the Technical Inspector. Cars may be required to re-pass technical inspection after an incident or upon request of the scrutineer.
