COMPETITOR OBLIGATION: Every driver must inspect the racing surface and the racetrack area to learn of any defects, obstructions, or anything which, in the driver’s opinion, is unsafe and the driver shall report in writing to a track official. Any driver entering any racing event is considered to have inspected the track and determined that all conditions are satisfactory. If the driver does not feel that conditions are satisfactory, then the driver should not race. The driver further acknowledges that he is aware that auto racing involves risks and that by competing in that event the driver assumes these risks with full awareness and knowledge.
ALL RULES ARE SUBJECT TO THE INTERPRETATION OF THE TRACK OFFICIALS, ANY EQUIPMENT THAT THE OFFICIALS CONSIDER EXOTIC OR NOT IN THE INTENT OF THE RULES WILL BE CONSIDERED ILLEGAL FOR COMPETITION. IN THE INTEREST OF FAIRNESS THE RULES MAY BE ADJUSTED TO CREATE A BALANCE IN COMPETITION.
No pretense is made for having designed a foolproof set of rules and regulations. The spirit and intent of the rules is the standard by which Saratoga Speedway track events will be governed. Saratoga Speedway Tech officials are authorized to decide if an equipment change, or modification is an attempt to circumvent these rules. Saratoga Speedway officials can and will disqualify a race car in violation of the spirit or intent of these rules. If this rule book does not specifically state that you can alter, change or otherwise modify something on your car, you should consider it a violation of these rules. No part is deemed to have been approved by Western Speedway officials by passing through prior technical inspections.
The Driver of each car represents to the Promoter and all others, that his car has satisfied all applicable rules, including but not limited to safety rules, whenever such Driver participated in any warm-up, practice or competitive laps.
The Driver of each car is also completely responsible for ALL actions of Crew Members, Sponsors, or all else signed under their number.
If you have any complaints, disputes, problems, or questions, only the Driver and Crew Chief, Driver and Car Owner, or Driver and one representative from your team may approach an Official, in a civil manner to resolve the situation.
All participants are expected to take pride in being part of Saratoga Speedway’s weekly program. Auto racing entertainment is what we have to offer and we will not tolerate the lack of professional attitude, conduct or appearance of car, driver crew or others involved.
All cars are required to completely conform to the rules package specific to their class. All parts or components deemed by the Technical Officials to be non-conforming will be prohibited. Use of prohibited parts may result in disqualification, fine and/or suspension to the Driver and/or Owner.
Any prohibited or illegal part found would become the property of Saratoga Speedway.
All construction rules will be decided by Saratoga Speedway Technical Officials. Their decision will be final on all construction rules. Burden of proof on any concern will be the responsibility of the driver and car owner.
These rules are a guideline. Contact the Saratoga Speedway Technical Officials for final approval of your racecar.
