14. Each kart/mower and driver will enter as a team. No driver will be permitted to change their kart/mower chassis after taking the green flag in a heat race in that class. Major components may be changed on the kart/mower but chassis and driver must compete as a team after the start of the heat.
15. It is the official’s decision on whether a kart/mower may be worked on while on the track.  
16. Any driver that delays the start of a race will start at the back of the lineup. Exception: If driver is changing racers for a different class. Anyone who races multiple classes back-to-back must have their mower/kart in staging area and ready to race in order to minimize any delays.
17. Drivers will draw for the starting position of the heat race. Feature line up is the finishing order of the heat race. The lineup for each race will be posted on the white marker board in the pit area. It is the responsibility of each driver to know where he/she lines up and it is recommended to be in the correct order in the staging area before they enter the track.
18. The race will start on the exit of turn 4. The driver in the pole position decides the speed of the restart. It will be the flagman’s decision to restart the race if an uneven start occurs. If, on the first lap, the front two drivers cannot get a clean start after two attempts, it will be decided by the officials to send entire front row or only one driver to the back row.
19. GREEN flag means go racing.
20. YELLOW flag means caution with no passing.
If a driver causes a YELLOW flag or if a driver comes to a stop during caution, that driver goes to the back (protect the leader: if the leader was involved in a caution but deemed not to be at fault, they are allowed to keep their lead position). The restart order will be determined by the score keeper(s). After the first lap, restarts will be single file and orderly. If first lap is not completed then all drivers will line up in original order at the flagman’s discretion. Drivers will be disqualified from that race after two yellow flags in the heat race or three yellow flags in the feature race. If you are disqualified from the heat race for excessive yellow flags, you will still be allowed to compete in the feature but will start in the back.
IF A BLACK FLAG IS CALLED, IT WILL OVER-RULE THE CAUTION.
21. RED flag means STOP! DO NOT continue around the track. Remain stationary until the yellow flag is reinstated.
22. A rolled BLACK flag pointed at a racer means that the flagman is giving a warning. A full BLACK Flag waved at a driver means the driver has been disqualified for that race and must leave the racing surface immediately. There will be no arguing about the flagman’s decision. He/She has the final word about driver expulsion from a race.
23. A rolled crossed white flag with green flag signals the half-way point of the race.
24. White flag signals the last lap of a race.
25. Three racers of the selected class must take the green flag in the heat and feature race for a class to be eligible for the 50/50 race. Two racers of the selected class must be left after the feature race to run the 50/50 race. To qualify for a 50/50 race, a driver must have entered and taken a green flag in both the heat and feature race. It is not possible to enter just the 50/50 race. 
26. In the event that enough drivers are not present for a class, a single driver for any class may pay entry fee for that class race to receive 10 points for showing up but will not receive more than 10 points and will not receive a trophy for that class. If already paid, entry fee can be refunded and driver WILL NOT receive any points or trophy.
