1. All races will start when the two front drivers are square on the straight when the green flag drops not before. If anyone jumps the start 1st time he will be rolled back to the rear of the field those behind him will move up. No criss-crossing. Two tries and then we will go to a single file start. Each mower must hold its position until the flag drops. The completion of the first lap will be when the lead mower crosses the start/finish line. On start of race if inside or outside or poll mowers, spin on their own and causes a caution flag to be thrown then that mower rolls back to the rear of pack. Any mower on start of race or during race that causes a caution will go to the rear of field.
2. Anyone leaving the track surface will go to the rear. NO EXCEPTIONS.
3. Restarts will be at the flagger’s discretion in single file coming off of turn 4. No passing until after passing the cone on front straight away. IF YOU PASS BEFORE THE FLAG IS DROPPED YOU WILL BE PUT TO THE REAR AT THE NEXT CAUTION OR SCORED LAST AT THE END WHICH EVER COMES FIRST.

10. All lapped mowers will start in their relative position even if its between first and second place on all restarts.
11. Move over flag means to hold a straight line as to where you are and do not try to run with the leaders that are lapping you. Holding your line means not up or down the track just simply a straight controlled line. If you hold up the lead pack you will be charged with a caution and scored a lap down. Make it easy on yourself and hold a straight line.
12. The completion of a lap is when everyone crosses the start/finish line. Should a caution occur everyone will go back to the last green lap.
13. A black flag will be given if there appears to be a problem with your mower. If you get the flag, go to the pits.
14. If you are disqualified for any reason you will get no finish position or awards for event.

16. Drivers will line up mowers immediately upon request. If not you will lose your starting position. 17. No laps will be scored that are run in the infield. You will not be scored if you cross outside the scoring loop.
18. Once the leader takes the white flag, and you spin a mower on the last lap you will be scored last on the lead lap, and the mower that did spin will be scored where he was running. If there is danger to a driver, or track is completely blocked and its red flagged, it will be track officials decision to restart the race or score the race on the last completed lap. TRACK OFFICIALS DECISION WILL BE FINAL!
19. If a mower has his nose up to driver’s door, then he has the right to his lane. NO CUTTING DOWN OR UP! This is driver courtesy. If you get there don’t always assume the other driver sees you. Make your decisions wisely. Understand if it goes wrong Officials cannot see every instance and the call the officials make will be final.
20. Heat race starting positions will be determined by qualifying times. Qualifying is determined by timed practice and features will be determined by finish of heats. 21. Pump gas only or racing alcohol only, No additives of any kind. No nitrous oxide in any class.
22. All mowers are subject to inspection at any time by track officials.
23. Fast time-chooses inside or outside poll. (Mowers that time trial)
