K. RACE PROCEDURE
El Paso County Speedway uses standard race flags (green, yellow, red,
1. Green Flag Procedure
a. The “original” start is located at the orange cone, inside
turn four, when the flagman displays the green flag.
If the front row does not stay aligned at turn four, the flagman,
in their discretion, may “wave off” this start, and the yellow light
will come back on. The
flagman will give the pole sitter and/or the front row 2 opportunities to
start the race, and may then elect to move the front row to the tail of
the field. Once the green
flag is displayed, the race is on, and passing is allowed. Any
driver caught “jumping” the start will be penalized two (2) positions,
either at the next yellow flag, or at the completion of the race.
Black Flag or Meatball flag (black with orange circle)
a. A rolled up
black flag will be pointed as a warning device.
If the flag is waved at you, you will exit the track as quickly &
safely as possible. You will no longer be scored once the black flag has
been displayed. If you
spin out twice on your own in any race, you will be black-flagged, and
scored in the last place position of cars remaining when you exited
the track. If you drive in a reckless manner, or if you
hot-lap during warm-up laps preceding a race, you will be black-flagged,
and will receive NO points.
Once driver is in the pit area, they
will not be allowed to re-enter the racing surface. Interpretation of the
black flag rule is left to the discretion of the flagman and officials.
Their decision is final. Any car emitting excessive oil, water, fuel,
smoke, mechanical parts or if it is
determined by staff that your vehicle is not complying with the
muffler/exhaust rule, you will receive the “Meatball” flag and must
exit the track. That driver
will be scored in the last place position of cars remaining when they
exited the track.
b. At the
discretion of the flagman, any driver advancing (“jumping”) positions
before the start of a race or restart, that
driver will be moved back 2 positions, either on the next restart, or
docked 2 positions at the end of the race. If a driver commits this
offense twice in any race, the driver will be black-flagged, and will be
scored in the last place position of cars remaining when they exited the
track. You must maintain a reasonable
speed until the start of the race or restart.
c. If the
officials feel a car's speed (or lack of speed), loose parts, etc. are
causing (or may cause) a safety problem, it can be black-flagged.
3. Red / Yellow Flag Procedures
a. Once the green flag is displayed,
racecars causing a yellow flag by spinning out, stopping, or being
"involved in" the mishap, will go to the rear of the field. The
restart is a two-abreast line-up in case of a first lap incident or
single file if one or more laps are completed. Cars
"involved in” the yellow will line up at the tail of the field in
the order of their last completed lap.
b. "Involved in" is defined
as: disabled and/or momentarily or temporarily detained at the scene of an
accident and unable to move forward.
c. If the Red Flag is displayed during a race, all cars shall come
to a complete, safe and immediate stop. Cars should not block track
entrances or exits, emergency vehicles, push trucks and wreckers. No crew
will be allowed on the racing surface.
Violations will result in disqualification.
No repair work is allowed on the
vehicles during a red flag situation.
d. If the
red or yellow flag is displayed as a result of driver's actions, even if
it is still moving on the track, you will restart at the rear of the
field. Example: debris on the track that causes a yellow flag to be
displayed will cause the car leaving the debris to go to the rear of the
a track official removes a part from the vehicle, due to safety concerns,
that vehicle will restart at the rear of the field.
If a track official stops a car, or a driver stops to ask a track
official to inspect a loose part, determines it does not need removed, the
driver will be re-placed back into the position of their last completed
e. If the
race is stopped on any lap due to a yellow or red flag before all
contestants have crossed the start/finish line, only those cars not crossing the finish line prior to the yellow/red
will be lined up according to the previous lap (but not placed ahead of
cars who did cross the line.) Those “involved in” the yellow or red
will be moved to the back of the lineup.
f. If a yellow or red flag occurs
on the white flag lap of a race and the leader has not taken the checkered
flag, the race will be restarted with two laps: Green, White, Checkered.
This procedure will be continued until the race is finished.
the heat race, any car that causes 1 yellow flag (1 spin rule), the driver
will be black-flagged and sent to the pit area, and scored in the last
place position of cars remaining when they exited the track.
In the feature, any car that causes 2 yellow flags, red flags, or
combination in the same race, will be black flagged and sent to the pit
area, and scored in the last place position of cars remaining when they
exited the track.
i. After the yellow flag is
thrown, drivers must get into single file line, if safe to do so. Any
driver not lining up may be sent to the rear. Fellow competitors must
allow cars into place in the single file line or violators will be sent to
the rear of the field.
j. Any car leaving the racing
surface and enters the pit area will not be allowed to re-enter the race.
k. During the initial start,
in the event of two red flag starts or three yellow flag starts, lineups
will be single file based on your original lineup position. Cars involved
in the mishap will be placed at the rear of the field.
l. If after a yellow or red, and a two-abreast start is needed, and
starting positions are vacated, the immediate cars behind the vacant
spot(s) will move to the next row forward.
4. Checkered Flag -- The
checkered flag indicates the conclusion/finish of the race, when the lead
car crosses that imaginary line, regardless of how many laps the rest of
the cars have completed.
a yellow or red flag occurs after the leader has taken the checkered flag,
the race is considered over, those succeeding cars will be placed in the
position they were scored in the previous lap, and the “involved in”
cars will be placed accordingly, at the tail of those cars scored on that
Blue with diagonal orange stripe – typically called the “Move Over
Flag”, this flag indicates to a driver(s) that the leaders are
approaching, and slower drivers are asked to “Hold & Maintain Your
a. Restarts are lined up single file.
The leader will restart the race somewhere approximate to the
orange cone in turn four, and then the flagman will display the green
flag. Racers must stay in
single file formation until the green is displayed, and at that display,
may attempt to pass. Any
driver caught “jumping” the restart will be penalized two (2)
positions, either at the next yellow flag, or at the completion of the
7. There shall be no electronic communication between the driver and pit
crewmembers during any race event.
8. Time or lap limits will be imposed on all heats, dashes and features if
deemed appropriate by officials.
9. Once the line up has been set for a feature or heat race and you are
not on the track, you will tag the back of the field. For features only,
if the race goes yellow or red and a lap has not been completed, you may
enter the race at the back of the field.
Rainout / Curfew Procedure --

complete and no rain out tickets will be issued.

completed), and the leader on the previously scored lap will receive the
checkered flag (even if no white flag has been displayed).
