2015 VOLUNTEER SPEEDWAY RULES & PROCEDURES

Drivers, Mechanics, Participants and Fans: Rules for each respective division are posted for your convenience here on the Volunteer Speedway website. We urge you to carefully read the General and Safety rules as well as rules for your division.

We have tried to make racing as competitive, affordable and safe as possible for all racers and fans. VOLUNTEER SPEEDWAY’s rules and procedures are explained in detail. The management of VOLUNTEER SPEEDWAY wishes all of you a successful and safe 2015 racing season.

*** NOTE: For the 2015 racing season all classes will be required to run a RACEceiver!!! Drivers will be told over the RACEceiver where to line up (behind of or in front of cars) while under caution. ANY driver who pulls down to the attention of a pit official on the front straightaway without being instructed to over the RACEceiver to argue/fuss about where they’re told to line up or to be checked to see if sheet-metal needs to be pulled away from a tire, will automatically be placed at the rear of the field to restart the race.

Also, only one RACEceiver unit permitted inside driver compartment, if more than one unit is found … the driver/car will be disqualified for the night’s racing program. The RACEceiver units will be for sale at the track on race nights.

Drivers’ between the ages of 16-18, before you compete in your first race you must bring either your driver’s license or birth certificate with you to the track to verify your age. Plus, a consent form must be signed by both parents. Also, anyone under the age of 18 wishing to enter the pit gate (pits and backside tier-parking), you “must” have your parent(s) or legal guardian sign the proper paperwork to allow you access. The paperwork only needs to be properly filled-out one time, and it will then be kept on file.
