half hour after the
conclusion of the final race of the class.
2) Protest money will be presented to the sign in booth (overlander’s trailer) by the
protesting racer. Fee is
$100.00 that should be non-refundable at the
time of protest.
3) The protesting racer shall make a clear and concise accusation as to the illegal area in
which the race truck has
violated the rules and the protest will remain in the scope of the original complaint. If the
protest if found to be non-
valid by the tech team, the driver protested will be awarded 50% of the original protest fee
which will be the sum of
$50.00 American dollars. The other $50.00 dollars will go to the club for the tech fees.
4) Generally, no motor parts will be removed with the exception of the valve covers, or
similar inspection cover,
rocker arms, as deemed “reasonable” by the tech crew.
5) The race truck driver will have the option of personally removing any tech crew’s
deemed “reasonable” panel,
cover, etc. or the tech crew will perform the extraction at the driver’s request.
6) If the protested driver fails or refuses to follow the tech crews instructions. The protest
will be deemed as
substantiated and the protest will be awarded as follows.
1) If a protest is found to be valid, the illegal truck and driver will forfeit all winnings and
entry fee’s for that class.
2) The winnings of that truck will go to the next truck placed in that class.
3) The protest fee of $100.00 will go to the club for handling the protest.
7) If a protested truck and driver are found to be illegal after a protest, the truck and driver
will not be allowed back
in that class until all violations have been check and tested by the tech crew. If the protest is
because of the CID rule,
your motor will have to be pumped before you can run in the protested class in the future. The
suspension may be
waved if the tech crew votes and agrees that the infraction was of an accidental nature.
8) If a driver thinks that there is a possibility of his truck being protested, because of the
CID rule, he may ask to
have his motor pumped at least 1 hour before the race starts. There is no cost for this to be
done; this test will be done
by the tech crew.
9) Tech crew has absolute discretion on the level of reteching for protest procedures and
further has total and
exclusive authority in determining if the racing vehicle is illegal for the class raced.
