RACE RULES: No EOLs will be given at the start of the race.

1. No Scrubbing Tires

2. Leader starts in the inside lane. Go on the green for start of race, then leader controls the start after each caution. The pace care must be off the racing surface before leader starts the race.
Leader May choose inside or outside lane. ( Only the first two cars )

3.Effective immediately for all races.
Drivers are not allowed to approach the start/finish line as a race transitions from pacing, for example under yellow flag or at the start of a race, to speeds that are well beyond the pacing speed or speed of the leaders in an attempt to time the green starting flag to unfairly overtake other cars. An example of this is coming up behind and catching a pack of cars pacing at 80 mph under yellow flag conditions at a speed of 150 mph in the vicinity of the start/finish line as the race goes to green flag and passing those cars. Under those conditions the car catching the field from behind should slow down and get in line at the back of the pack at pacing speed and then begin racing once the race goes green.
Note: The best way to know you are OK to pass on a start or restart is to be at or below the speed of the leader when the leader starts the race or the green flag comes out. If you are matched or below the leaders speed at the time he starts the race or the green flag comes out, you may then pass on the right if the opportunity presents itself. If you are passing cars and were faster than the leader at the time he started the race or the green flag came out, you are then in violation and can be protested"
Drivers may protest your start after any race. if it is deemed you where in violation of this rule, you will be scored the last car on the lead lap, if you were a lap down you will be scored last place in the race.

4. No jumping the start.

5. No more than a half of a car length between cars.

6. Do not push the pusher.

7. During pitting, do not check up until you are below the racing surface. Stay to the right of the pit lane until you are five stalls from your pit. Do not brake until you have exited the right lane. If you are below a car to your outside you must slow down and get behind that car to ensure a safe pit entrance.

8: Lap cars are required to yield to the lead lap cars, move out of the preferred line unless instructed by the leader. If you are one or more laps down do not impede the lead lap cars at anytime. If you are drafting with a lead lap car and trying to help him that is permitted but at no time are you allowed to block a lead lap car.

9. NO RACING BELOW THE YELLOW or WHITE LINE At Daytona and Talladega.

10: Yellow Flags : It is your responsibility to catch the pace car as soon as possible in a safe manner. If your car is damaged to the point you cannot maintain a speed to catch up to the pace car with the pack then you must ask for a EOL. Failure to request an EOL will result in a one point penalty and or scored in last place of that race if deemed necessary. Keep a close look at your onscreen prompts and wait for the cars that need to pass you. ( IF YOU RECEIVE A BLACK FLAG FOR PASSING UNDER YELLOW IT WILL NOT BE CLEARED)


11: There will not be any wave arounds. ( Iracing controls the race).

12: Blinking Cars : If your are notified that your car is blinking you must move to the rear of the field until the issue is resolved.

13. Admins have the right to remove any driver from the race at anytime.

14: Self Police : It is the members responsibility to hold our drivers to the Area 51 standard. If you feel a driver is not driving to our vision you may go to the website and place a vote for that driver to be removed from the series. If a driver receives 5 member votes and one admin vote in a season he or she will be demoted to the lower tier series and will have to earn their way back to the premier series.

15. At the conclusion of the race do not make contact with another car because it may cause incident points to you and another driver for which might otherwise have been an incident free race and lose of bonus points. So if you are not the winner of the race exit your car asap and let the winner celebrate alone.
