2018 Bob Sailer Memorial Race Rules:

The 2018 Red River Kart Club Bob Sailer Memorial Race will take place over 2 race nights. Night 1 will take place on Monday, July 9th and will consist of 2 preliminary rounds of heat races for all classes.

Night 2 will take place on Monday, July 16th and consist of 1 additional preliminary heat race followed by feature events for all classes. Preliminary heat races will be 15 laps each and features will be 20 laps for all classes. (Novice and Rookie 1 Classes: Preliminary heat races will be 10 laps each and features will be 15 laps.) Night 2 will also be a “Meet & Greet” prior to the feature races.

Drivers will accumulate points based on their finishing position in each preliminary heat race. These overall points will then be tallied up to determine the starting positions for each feature event, with the overall highest point earner in each class starting on the pole, the driver with the second highest point total starting on the outside of the front row and so on.

Starting positions for heat race #1 will be determined by draw. Starting positions for heat races #2 & #3 will be based on an invert of the finishing order of the previous heat. The driver with the lowest finishing position starts on pole position and the driver with the highest finishing position starts last.

Awards will be given to the 1st place feature finisher in each class. (No awards will be given out for Night 1.)

Points will be tallied once again after all feature events have been run and awards will also be given to the top 10 point earners in the club as a whole. This means that a driver in any class has a shot at one of these 10 awards based on their overall point totals through the feature events on night 2. These awards will be handed out at our season-ending banquet.

Points will be distributed as follows:

• Karts will be scaled. If your kart fails to make weight you will be disqualified from that individual race and will receive no points. If you are unsure what your individual weight requirement is for your class, be sure to ask.

• If you miss Night 1, you’ll need to start at the back of both races on Night 2.

• Even though there is no draw on Night 2, all driver must check-in.

• If you receive a black flag and are DQ’d from any race throughout the event you will receive zero points for that individual race.
