HOME 2007 Dixieland Speedway Rules Dixieland Speedway 2007 Rules














The following rules are an overview of the racing rules at Dixieland Speedway and are in no way inclusive and can be changed at any time.

1.  Drivers and crews are subject to alcohol and on the spot drug testing at anytime.  Any competitor who test positive for or refuses the alcohol or drug test will be disqualified from the racing event, will forfeit any money earned for that event, is subject to the loss of all accumulated points, and will be required to re-test prior to entry into the pits for other events.  Any entrant to the pits who is not a competitor will be escorted out of the pits and will be required to re-test prior to entry into the pits for other events.

2.  The Driver is responsible for the actions of their crews.  Any Driver or crews who goes to another person’s pit area and starts an altercation will be disqualified from the event. They will be subject to the loss of any money earned for that event, will be subject to the loss of all accumulated points and being fined by Dixieland Speedway not less then $100.00. They may be banned from Racing at Dixieland Speedway, and are subject to being arrested by the track owner or the person with whom they are having the altercation.  Any Driver, pit crew, or entrant to the pits of Dixieland Speedway who is asked to leave the premises by an Official of Dixieland Speedway and refuses to do so is subjected to being arrested for Trespassing.  The race vehicle and associate equipment is subjected to being impounded by the Counties Law Enforcement until restitution though the Court system is granted.

3.  Any Driver, crewmember, or pit entrant who strikes an Official of Dixieland Speedway is subject to being fined $1000.00, being removed from the premises, being banned from entry to Dixieland Speedway, and being arrested and prosecuted by the management of Dixieland Speedway or by the Official with whom the altercation was with.  Any Driver, Crew member, or pit entrant who verbally Assaults an Official of Dixieland Speedway is subject to being fined not less then $200.00, being removed from the premises, and being banned from entry to Dixieland Speedway.

4.  Any race car found to be illegal before, during, or after the racing event by the officials of Dixieland Speedway will be subject to disqualification, loss of any money earned, is subject to additional fines, and loss of accumulated points at Dixieland Speedway.  The vehicle will be required to be re-inspected by track Officials before being allowed to compete at the Speedway.

5.  The driver of the racecar immediately behind a racecar can file a protest, if that driver feels that the competitor is using illegal engine parts.  The car will be impounded and the Technical Official of Dixieland Speedway will have the final ruling on the legality of the racecar.  Protests can only be filed to any of the Dixieland Officials within 15 minutes of the end of the racing event in which the car participated in.  It must be accompanied by $400.00 cash from the driver lodging the protest. The reason for the protest must be specific to the engine part being protested.  If the car is found to be Illegal for the engine part being protested then the money will be returned to the protestor.  If the car is found to be legal then $250.00 will go to the driver being protested and $150.00 will go to Dixieland Speedway.  The Illegal part may be confiscated by Officials of Dixieland Speedway and not returned.  If during the protest a different reason for disqualification is discovered by Officials of Dixieland Speedway the car can still be disqualified as outlined in paragraph number 4 above.  However the money for the protest will still be divided as noted above because the original protested part was legal.

6. Flag Rules:

(A) Green Flag- Starts the race or any restarts.


(B) Yellow Flag- Indicates caution on the racetrack slow down, hold your position.  We do not race back to the Flag.


(C) Red Flag- Stop.  Due to a serious wreck or other reason the race has been stopped.  No work is allowed on the vehicle with any tools and only one pit crewmember can go on the racing surface to service the driver.  They can remove vehicle parts, which are interfering with the vehicle with the use of their hands only.  NO TYPE OF TOOLS CAN BE USED. AIR PRESSURE IN TIRES CANNOT BE ADJUSTED.


(D) Black Flag- when this flag is displayed to a Driver of a racecar they should immediately leave the racing area and go to the pits.  It is given to a racecar for one of two reasons.  They have violated a racing rule and are being penalized or they have a problem with their vehicle which is unsafe and they need to have it corrected before continuing the event.  Once the Black Flag is given to a vehicle for three times then the scorers will stop scoring the vehicle, the vehicle will lose all points for that event, and is subject to being fined $100.00 by Dixieland Speedway.


(E) White Flag_ indicates the final lap of the racing event.  Once this flag is displayed the only flag that can follow the White Flag is the Checkered Flag.  If an accident occurs on the last lap then the yellow light will be illuminated and drivers are urged to take note that there may be an accident on the track.  However you CAN RACE BACK TO THE FLAG STAND ONLY ON THE LAST LAP. (NOTE:  If during some events cautions are being counted and the caution flag is out as we approach the final lap then the event will be finished under caution in the order the race cars are in when the caution was displayed.  There will be no racing back to the checkered flag.)


(F) Checkered Flag- indicates the end of the racing event.  Once displayed vehicles are to slow and exit the racing surface after crossing the start finish line.  Only the top three racecars are to return to the start finish line for presentation of the trophy.  Race cars that take additional laps are subject to a fine of not less then $100.00.


(G) Blue Flag with Orange or yellow Stripe- this is the move over flag. It will be displayed to the racecars, which are about to be overtaken by the leaders of the event.  It is a courtesy type of flag in which the slower racecars need to move out of the leaders way.  When given to a slower racecar that car should move down to the lower side of the track allowing the faster cars to go by on the outside.  Repeated failure to obey this flag could cause the competitor to be black-flagged.


(H) Red and Black Flags together- Indicates for vehicles to immediately exit the racing surface and return to the pit area.   Cars that do not immediately exit the racing surface (i.e. taking extra laps) will be subject to a $50.00 fine.

(I) Green and Yellow Flags together-During the fast practice these two flags may be shown to indicate to the drive they can increase their speed but that the racing surface is not good enough or other cars are still entering the track.  Once the officials determine that the surface is good they will remove the yellow flag which would indicate drivers can run at normal speed.


7.  The pace truck will be utilized during the initial start of each main racing event. The Chief starter will give the two laps to go single (two fingers in the air as you pass the flag stand). The pace truck will "SET THE PACE" which the inside pole car will adhere to.  As the one lap to go single is given by the Chief starter the pace truck will turn off its caution light.  The pace truck will increase its speed so that it can exit in turn two safely; the pole sitter will maintain their speed at the pre-race pace.  The pole sitter will continue with the pace set by the pace truck until the green flag is displayed indicating that the race has started.


 8.  The pace truck will be utilized during any cautions during the main racing events.  The pace truck will again set the pace during the caution laps.  NO RACECARS WILL PASS THE PACE TRUCK UNLESS DIRECTED TO DO SO BY A RACE OFFICIAL.  Racecars, which pass the pace truck, are subject to a 1 lap penalty or placement to the rear of the field.  Restarts will be up to the number one position after reaching an indicated point on the back stretch once the one lap single has been given by the chief starter and the Pace truck has exited the racing surface.


9.  Any protests or discussions with a track official about the outcome of an event will only be done by the driver of the racecar.  None of the pit crew or fans will be allowed to be involved with the discussion.  All decisions by the Officials of Dixieland Speedway are Final.  Again, we remind all Drivers.  You are responsible for the actions of your pit crew.


10.  Each Car is required to assist the track in rolling in.  They must make at least 5  laps and then draw a pill for position for qualifying, heat race, or main event. Failure to complete this requirement could result in being placed to the rear of the field during your event or being first to qualify for events that require qualifying.


11.   To receive payment for the racing events the driver MUST sign the receipt book including Social Security Number.  NO ONE EXCEPT THE DRIVER CAN RECEIVE PAYMENT.


12.  The Cleanliness of the pit area around your vehicle is your responsibility.  Failure to keep your area clean could result in you being given a fine or not being allowed to race at events at Dixieland Speedway.  WARNINGS MAY NOT BE GIVEN.


13.  Drivers need to have their race cars lined up for the racing event at least 15 minutes before the race event starts.  Failure to do so could result in you being placed at the rear of the field.   This includes lining up for qualifying.


14.   When Questions arise with scoring they will only be discussed at the end of all Racing Events for the evening. Only the driver will be allowed to discuss the scoring question with the chief scorer.  The procedure for requesting a meeting will be for the driver to contact one of the track officials in the pit area and they will advise the scorers of the car number and drivers name.  Arrangements will be made through the Chief Starter/Race Director after all the events are complete.



15.  Should you receive an injury you must report it to a track official immediately.  Ambulance service is provided for you at the facility.  Proper documentation must be complete in order for you to be covered by insurance.  If you are injured and then return to the racing events you are no longer covered for that injury by the insurance carrier.


16.  The line-ups for the racing event will be posted on the Bulletin Board at the infield concession stand.  Track Officials will be very busy during the racing events so please check the Bulletin Board prior to going to a Track Official with questions about the line up.


17.  All vehicles, which are involved in accidents, will go to the rear of the field.  The Track Officials will determine vehicles involved in accidents.


18.        If an accident occurs on the first lap of an event then a complete restart will be done.  All cars will go to their original starting positions except those cars involved in the accident, which do not immediately return to the start finish line.  This includes any cars, which return to the pits prior to realignment and the start of the race. Two restarts double file will be done. If the event does not have a clean start after two attempts then a single file start will be accomplished.


19.        Entry and Exit to the infield pit area by walking patrons will only be made  at the flag stand under direction of a track official.  Failure to adhere to this rule could mean removal from the pit area for that evening's event. Entry and Exit to the pit area shall only normally be done during a red flag condition. Entry or Exit of the pit area under any other situations without the permission of a track official is subject to removal for the evening's events and possibly other racing events.


20.     Entry from the outside pit area in turn 3 to the racing surface or the inside pits will only be done during red flag conditions and at the direction of the track Officials. Entry or Exit of the pit area under any other situations without the permission of a track official is subject to removal for the evening's events and possibly other racing events.  NOTE: this includes those pit crew personnel in any type of support vehicles. They must stop in turn 3 and not proceed on the track until directed by a Track Official


21.        In the case of an accident during any racing event participants in the pits will not enter the racing surface unless directed to by a track official. Participants who do not comply with this requirement are subject to removal from the pit area and a $100.00 fine.


22.       When involved in an accident, drivers will stay in their vehicles in their safety harness until a track official arrives at the vehicle to advise the drive it is safe to exit the vehicle.  Under life threatening circumstances, such as the vehicle on fire, the drive shall be exempt from this rule.    


23.       All Classes are required to wear a full driver's suit anytime they are on the racetrack.   Failure to wear a full drivers suit could subject the driver not to be allowed to race and a fine of $25.00.


24.       In events where laps are not counting and the racing event has a number of delays then at the discretion of the Dixieland Officials the laps can be counted.  When this decision is made all three lights on the stoplight will be displayed indicating that laps are now being counted.   


ADDEMDUM TO RACE RULES 2022                                                 

a. Black flag rules for rough Driving:

    (i) 1st time a rolled up back flag warning.

    (ii)  2nd time black flag will be issued; the field will then be brought under caution and the car will be placed at the rear of the field by track officials.

    (iii) 3rd time black flag will be issued; the field will then be brought under caution and the car will be sent to the pit for a drive through stop and go penalty and the team will be docked 5 championship points.

(NOTE: track officials have the option at any time to place the car in the pits and not return to the racing event for that evening or subsequent races at Dixieland Speedway)

b. Disqualification:  When a driver or participant try’s to deliberately hurt another driver with his or her car as a weapon they will be disqualified for the event that evening, could have championship points docked, not receive payment for the evenings event, and at the discretion of the track officials/owner not be allowed to participate in events at Dixieland Speedway and be levied a monetary fine.

c. Caution Flag for Safety Concerns:  Cars leaking fluids or parts damaged causing a safety concern will be removed from the race track by displaying the black flag or the  caution flag and having the car brought to the pits for service.

d. Spin out rule: 3 unassisted spins by a participant, that bring out a caution, will require the issue of the black flag and the car going to the pits.  The car must get adjustments by the pit crew but can return to the race once inspected by the tech inspector to clear you for the return to competition.

e. Entering and Exiting Track:  No person or vehicle shall enter or exit the track unless directed and released to do so by track officials.  Those persons who are approved to enter the pits while walking must obtain the proper pass from the pit gate and then can only enter and exit the track through the flag stand gate.

f. Pit entrants on track during caution and green flag conditions: If a person goes on the racing surface during any time other then being told to by a track official then the following action will be taken: Track officials have the option to immediately remove the entrant from the pit area or the entrant will be warned the first (1) time and then removed from the pits for a second (2) offence. Any action chosen is by the discretion of Track Officials.

If a crew member enters the racing surface while the field is under caution and works on the car in any manner (unless track officials call them out to the track to assist them) the car will be placed at the rear of the field, held in pits for lap penalty, or could be disqualified from the event (the type of penalty issues will be at the discretion of the Race Director).  The participant who entered the racing surface will be removed from the pits immediately.

g. Caution Flag. As a reminder when the caution Flag is displayed (By yellow flag and lights) race cars are to slow down and hold your position. At Dixieland Speedway we revert back to the last Green Flag Lap.  If you are advised by track officials to change your position, please do so.  The line up is determined by the Official scorer’s and is final.  Failure to go to your position could result in a Lap penalty to removal from the Race.

You as drivers are all aware that the race director, flagman, scorer’s, and track officials, do not push the gas pedal, turn the steering wheel, or press the breaks on these cars.  The determination of whether a on track incident warrants a penalty or not are solely on what THEY observe.  They do not know what is in a driver’s mind.  They can only do the best job they can do in making decisions in a split second by what they see, not what your fans or pit crew think they see but what the officials see.  The decision of the Race Director/Control is final including your placement in position after an incident.  All the Officials at Dixieland Speedway try to do the best job we can to assure we get it right.  Think about that before you go to have a discussion with the officials.  Again, it’s what THE OFFICIALS see not what your fans or pit crew see. 

Thank you for your attention in this matter.  By signing in as a participant in this event you acknowledge that you have received a copy of these rules and have read them.
