RULEBOOK DISCLAIMER

The rules and/or regulations set forth herein are designed to provide for the orderly conduct of racing events and to establish minimum acceptable requirements for such events.  These rules shall govern the condition of all events, and by participating in these events, all participants are deemed to have complied with these rules.  NO EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OR SAFETY SHALL RESULT FROM PUBLICATIONS OF OR COMPLIANCE WITH THESE RULES AND/OR REGULATIONS.  They are intended as a guide for the conduct of the sport and are in no way a guarantee against injury or death to a participant, spectator or official.

 The chief steward shall be empowered to permit minor deviation from any of the specifications herein or impose any further restrictions that in his opinion do not alter the minimum acceptable requirements.  NO EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OF SAFETY SHALL RESULT FROM SUCH ALTERATION OF SPECIFICATIONS.  Any interpretation or deviation of these rules is left to the discretion of the officials.  Their decision is final.

 Throughout this rulebook, reference is made to “stock” or “stock replacement” parts.  “Stock” means OEM factory produced, non hi-performance parts for an automobile.  “Stock Replacement” means parts that are produced by an aftermarket manufacturer to blueprint OEM specifications, which do not exceed these specifications in any manner.

Oglethorpe Speedway Park officials reserve the right to disqualify and/or penalize a driver for equipment that does not fall within the guidelines of this rulebook.  Their decision is final and binding and will be upheld by the speedway management.

 TRACK POLICY

Oglethorpe Speedway Park is private property.  Any person on this property without the permission of Oglethorpe Speedway Park management is guilty of trespass and subject to the penalties prescribed by law.  Through your membership, registration or association, you have been given the authority to be on this property in conjunction with racing activities.  However, the management of Oglethorpe Speedway Park reserves the right to revoke or cancel this authority at any time that is felt your presence or conduct is not in the best interests of the sport of auto racing, your fellow competitors, the fans, management and the employees of the speedway.

RAIN-OUT POLICY

Once a feature event is completed within any division after all the heat races and qualifying have been completed, the racing program will be considered a complete show.  Divisions not completing a feature event that evening will run a double feature program the following week.  The first feature will be run according to the line-up for the rain date or at the point the feature was halted.  The second feature will be run according to the blind draw held at the pit window prior to the new night’s event start.  There will not be any heat races on double feature nights for the divisions running two features.  Points and prize money will be issued for both features.  There will be NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES DUE TO RAINOUTS.  In the event that the following week is a scheduled special event, changes may be made to this policy to accommodate different sponsors and situations beyond our control.

 PROMOTIONAL RELEASE

Any competitor who wishes to compete at Oglethorpe Speedway Park during any race event or promotional event, consents to the use of their name, pictures of themselves and their race car, video of themselves and their race car for publicity, advertising and endorsements, both before and after the events, and relinquishes any rights to photos or videos taken in connection with events and consents to the publication or sale of such photos as the speedway so desires.
