2013 ENDURO RULES
HIGHLIGHTS—Welcome drivers to the fun and excitement of Enduro Racing. Here is
what an Enduro is all about. SPEED does NOT necessarily count in an Enduro. The
secret is the combined ability of a driver and their car to last for 100 laps or
one hour, on the race track without a major mishap. This is NOT a Demolition
Derby. The first car that completes 100 laps will be the winner, or the car that
travels the most amount of laps in one hours time would be declared the winner.
is an event for the basic “STOCK CAR.” Only minor modifications or
alterations will be allowed. The race will start with two or three cars abreast
in each row from a rolling start, and continue for 100 laps or one hour, without
any yellow flags (unless deemed necessary by officials for safety reasons). Cars
that are stalled on the track due to breakdowns or accidents may be left there
as obstacles, and all other cars should avoid them while continuing to race. The
driver must never get out of their car while it is on or near
the racing surface. Violators will be disqualified and ejected from the race
immediately. The driver may get out and observe the race from the safety of the
infield. Once again, this is an endurance race event, NOT A DEMOLITION DERBY!
The best strategy is to pace yourself and stay out of trouble, don’t crash
into anyone and try not to let anyone crash into you. Start with a good set of
tires and avoid running over anything that will cut them.
RED flag will be displayed only in case of an emergency, and all cars MUST STOP
IMMEDIATELY and hold their position. The race will restart with all cars in the
position they were in at the Red flag. If your car catches fire in the engine
compartment, go to the infield and get out of it immediately. The fire crews
will extinguish the fire quickly. No cars will be allowed out of the pits during
a RED flag. Cars that have flat tires or need servicing, may go to the pits on
the GREEN flag. If you enter the pits on a RED flag, you will be held at the pit
entrance for one minute once the green flag flies again. Re-entry to the track
will be allowed as the ramp officials indicate. Driver changes will be allowed
only when the car is in the pits. Cars entering the pits must slow down and
proceed in an orderly fashion with safety in mind. There is a $25 fine and/or a
five lap penalty for speeding in the pits. Any car that cuts through the infield
will be BLACK flagged and/or assessed a five lap penalty. Rupture of gas tank
and/or fuel spillage will require immediate BLACK flag. Any loss of wheel or
tire requires your leaving the race track immediately, either to the pits for
repairs or park in the infield. Officials will assess lap penalties or
disqualify cars that are in violation of procedures, specifications or safety,
and their decisions shall be final.
minors under age 18 must have a parent’s signed, notarized release and
permission to participate in the Enduro or to enter the pit area. PRE-ENTRY FEE

the day of the event.
