6.      The car will be assigned an official race number and will be handed over to the Pit Crew to be placed in the Car Corral, where the car will remain up until and immediately following each race in which the Scout participates.

7.      Once the car is checked in, no lubricant may be applied and the car will only be handled by race officials.

8.      No work may be done on cars after weigh in and cars are in pit area.

9.      The Pit Crew will take each car to the Starter for placement on the track. The Pit Crew will also remove each car from the finish line and replace it to the Car Corral.

10.  If any minor repairs need to be made during the race, the Pit Crew will complete these repairs, such as a wheel falling off.

11.  No race will not be held up for repairs, or for glue to dry. If for example, the wheel still falls off during the heat, that car comes in last and will wait for the next heat to compete again.

12.  Each heat of each race will be determined by a randomized computer system and judged by that computer system by time to the thousandth of a second to ensure fairness to all competitors.

13.  All decisions made by Race Officials are final.
