Main Event Driver Substitution: May Valley Speedway uses a unique process of establishing the Main Event line ups. This process not only provides suspense and excitement for both drivers and fans, but it brings the best drivers out on top as the point leaders, only because they work and earn it! Main Event line ups are established from the previously completed Main Event based on the car's capability and the registered driver's skills. All cars that complete the Mains without spinouts, wrecks, pit stops, or mechanical problems are inverted for the next week's Main Event. The rest are aligned behind according to their finishing position New cars and drivers are placed in the rear. Registered drivers are required to drive their car in Main Events! If a driver change must be made, the Pit Steward MUST be notified prior to intermission. This car and driver will be repositioned in the rear. If a driver attempts to replace another driver and doesn't notify the Pit Steward for the Main Event and is not repositioned, will be disqualified. Car and driver will forfeit winnings and points earned for the Main Event!! THIS WILL BE ENFORCED!!

ON THE TRACK RULES

1. Flags and lights: Flagman has control of cars when on the race track. When all lights are off, get ready to race.

2. Starting a race: Drivers pay attention to the lights, flagman, and to your position at the start/finish line. When the lights go off, bring the cars up to racing speed. Stay bunched together. The flagman will give the green around turn 3 or 4 when the pack looks good. You may pass a lagging car. If your screw up the starts more than once, you might be placed in the rear.

3. Spin Outs: Any driver that spins out more than twice in a night or seems out of control, is subject and most likely will be black flagged. Because you’re a danger to others and can create costly damage to race cars, take your time, avoid over driving. Relax and have fun. Any driver that continues to drive in a reckless manner or out of control will lose their racing privileges.

4. Yellow Caution Flag: Cautiously cease to race! Don’t lock up the brakes and create a wreck. Slow down to 15 mph. An orange cone will be placed on the back straightaway. All cars will pass the cone on the outside. Any car that passes beneath the cone will go to the back of the pack. NO EXCECPTIONS. If necessary you will be re-aligned according to the last green crossing of the start/finish line. Pay attention to the flagman. If you caused the yellow, you will be put to the back even if you’re involved in the incident that caused the yellow you also, upon the track officials discretion, could be put in the back, too. Yellow laps don’t count.

5. Restarts: When the track is clear all the lights will go off, bring the cars up to racing speed, single file. When the leader gets to the cone, either the green or the yellow light will come on. ABSOLUTELY NO PASSING untill after passing the cone!! REMEMBER...you cause a yellow...you may be put in the rear!!

6. Conduct: MAY VALLEY SPEEDWAY has a track advisory board. Following the races they discuss the evening’s events. Should there be a problem brought up, it will be evaluated and handled as seen fit. Remember, stock car racing is a family sport and lots of fun and excitement. Let’s all do our best to keep it fun for all.

NOTE: Any car that has a loose part that looks like it may fall off or become detached and create a safety hazard to others will be black flagged. Flat tires will be black flagged.
