RACE PROCEDURES
 
Absolutely no unlicensed drivers should be operating vehicles at the track.  Anyone caught doing so will be asked to leave.   This is a huge safety and liability issue.  Please obey the track rules so that we can continue to keep our race track.

All cars in all divisions will run transponders.  If you forget to put a transponder on your car you will be called off the track to put one on and will start at the rear.  If you own your transponder and it is not charged or picking up on the loop then you will be called in the pits to put a club transponder on and will start at the rear.  If you rent a club transponder and it is not charged or picking up on the loop you will be called in the pits to get another one and will NOT lose your starting position.

If your driver comes in the pits during warm up laps they will lose their starting position and start at the rear.

There will be a one minute time limit on warm up laps.

There is an eight minute time limit on all races.  If there is a caution and time runs out we will get a final line up and throw the checkered flag.  If the race is running under green and the clock runs out the race will continue until the checkered flag is thrown or until there is a caution, which at that time a final line up will be given and the checkered flag will be thrown.

If we have more than 75 cars all heat races will be 20 laps (with the exception of Jr. and Sr. Novice which only runs 15) and all lower mains will be 20 laps.  The A Mains will run their normal amount of laps—20 for Jr. and Sr. Novice, 25 for Jr. Honda and 30 for everything else.

If we are running late the race director can change the amount of laps run in the heats or mains so long as he announces it to the handlers before the heats or mains begin.

If there are two heats the top 3 cars will go to the A main, then next 3 to the B and so on—this will allow 4 cars to transfer from the lower mains with the exception of Jr. Honda which will only transfer 2.  If there are 3 heats the top 2 cars will go to the A main, then next 2 to the B and so on—this will again allow 4 cars to transfer from the lower mains with the exception of Jr. Honda which will still only transfer 2.

If there is more than one Jr. or Sr. Novice Heat the drivers of Heat 1 will race the same drivers in Main 1 and the drivers of Heat 2 will race the same drivers in Main 2—we do not transfer cars since Novice is a learning not competitive class.

All classes will need 89 octane. SCQMRA will be getting a fuel sample on race day for testing.  If your fuel doesn't test correct, your driver can be DQ'd.  Please direct any questions on the fueling procedures to the, tech director.

   
POINT & RAINOUT POLICY

The Board of Directors along with the SCQMRA Membership in an effort to have a fair

In the event that racing begins and all heat races have not been completed due to a weather cancellation SCQMRA will try to make up the race the next fun night.

If all heat races have been completed but none of the mains have been completed, points will be awarded based on the results of the heat race for each division.  If a division completes its "A" main race the results of that race will count and point's will be awarded based on those results. Those divisions in which the mains have not been completed, points will be reverted back to the results of the heat race results.

In the event the racing program is delayed due to weather, the decision to delay or cancel the event will be voted on by the membership in attendance. When the racing program is delayed due to weather and a late start is decided upon by the members then only one race (heat/mains) will be ran and point's will be awarded based on the results.

Only Space Coast QMRA members will be eligible to receive points.  Points are awarded to the competitive divisions only.  Novice divisions will not receive point's.

The point system begins at 30 points to the winner of the A-Main Feature event.  Each finishing position following the winner will decreased by one point through 10th place (8th for Jr. Honda).  The system will continue to decrease in points for the B and C feature and so on.  All drivers who "attempt to race" in the feature event will receive points EXCEPT for any driver who is disqualified.  Drivers will also be awarded points base on their finish in the heat races.  The points will begin at 15 and decrease by one point.

Junior Honda drivers turning nine (9) during the year will be allowed to move up to Senior Honda at anytime as per the QMA rules.  A Jr. Honda driver who will be moving up to Sr. Honda must do so by the first points race following the completion of the Grands in order to transfer their accumulated points.  At any point in the season that a driver moves from Junior to Senior Honda, he/she can only carry over as many points that are equal to one (1) point less then the current third place Sr. Honda driver at the time of move up.

At the end of the season the driver who has accumulated the most points will determine a division champion.  In the event there is a tie the championship will be determined using the drivers total number of feature wins,  then second place finishes, thirds, and so on until the tie has been broken.  Only 80% of the races run will count towards the point's championship.  This allows each drive to drop a low-point night or to miss an event if necessary.  A driver must race at least 20% of the actual point races ran to receive a trophy and be invited to the end of the year awards banquet.  All drivers must also be members of SCQMRA.

PRACTICE POLICY
In order to practice a Board Member must be present at all times.  Practices will be scheduled and made public during the racing season.  Practice sessions will be determined by the Board and race director.
