Highland Speedway will be enforcing the existing following rules for all classes effective immediately: Anytime that a driver exits a race car on the track a red flag will be issued. Drivers are not allowed to exit their race car on the track unless directed by a Highland Speedway Official or unless it is an emergency situation. Any driver that exits their car under any other circumstances to cause a delay in racing and/or to approach other race cars on the track will be punished.
We are still working out the details of either disqualification or establishing a fine system that will be assessed if this situation occurs. No matter what, some form of punishment will be issued. Anyone that is concerned with what an emergency consists of feel free to contact Track Promotor, Scott Kuhn. The drivers intent will be quite obvious if they do need to exit their car due to an emergency situation, or if their car is exited for other intentions. Unfortunately due to recent events at another track last weekend it has caused a number of tracks to look at their current on track procedures and learn from that situation. Driver safety is our main concern and reason for enforcing these rules.
The races for tonight have been canceled or rained out. The sun has not come out today like we had hoped to dry things out. It would be a sloppy mess and conditions will be muddy. The Leaps of Love activities are still going to be going on today at the Expo Hall. Drivers can still participate and take their haulers up and unload near the Grandstand Entrance. The pits will be closed due to the mud and no dry time. We will have the Junior Fan Club Bicycle Blowout next weekend on Saturday, August 16th. We are extremely disappointed as Mother Nature is not cooperating with us today at all. This is an event we look forward to all year long. If anyone would like to support the Leaps of Love cause please go their website www.leapsoflove.org and see all the great things that this wonderful organization does for these families.
