Our mission is to provide a fun, safe, and rewarding racing experience, in a family friendly, drug free environment for racers of all ages and riding abilities.

Entrants, riders, and participants are required to know and understand the rules and regulations that cover a DMC Motorsports, LLC event and are (by reason of their entry) definitely bound by such. In cases where a rule determination is not defined in these rules, the decision of the DMC Motorsports, LLC's Race Director will be final.

Each participant has the responsibility to assess the safety aspects of track facilities and conditions and MUST assume the risks associated with competition.

Specific Rules for Competition:

1. The Number One Rule is: HAVE FUN!!!! We are all here to enjoy the weekends with our friends and family. It is the responsibility of each individual to conduct themselves in a reasonable, sportsman-like manner. DMC Motorsports reserves the right to remove anyone from the premises whom violates the enjoyment of others at any event.

2. If you need to switch machines that have a different number, for any reason, between the heat race and the final event; It is "YOUR" responsibility to ensure that the Registration Trailer has record of your number change for that race.

If mechanical breakdown happens near the finish line, the driver ONLY may push the machine across the finish line. Chronic course cutting penalty will be assessed by race officials on a case by case basis.

11. If, for any reason, the race must be stopped, it will be considered completed IF over 50% of the race has been run. A complete re-start if less than 50% of the race has been run. Odd number of laps, add 1 and divide by 2. If there are 2 red flags in any given race, the race is over no matter how many laps have been run. If you are the reason for the "red flag" or stoppage of the race and you are able to re-start, you will have to start backwards on the re-start of that moto.

A rider CANNOT change classification from class to class. (e.g. Intermediate in one class and Pro in another)
