Secretary Larry Hol
All cars may be teched at any time upon entering the pit area at the discretion of the series promoter/track officials. The engine of each competitor will be pumped as close to the beginning of the season as possible. Any car joining the association during the course of the season will be pumped upon entering the pit area prior to the competition. At each event during the course of the season two cars selected at random from the top ten in average points will be pumped prior to each competition. At the conclusion of the feature event the top four finishers are required to go to the tech area for inspection prior to returning to their specific pit area. The featuere event winner should report to be weighed prior to going to victory lane. All transfer cars plus the first non-transfer car from preliminary events must weigh before going to their pit area.

WORK AREA FOR FEATURE EVENTS
On feature events only, cars will have two (2) minutes to work on the car once it reaches the designated work area.
LINE_UPS and FEATURE INVERSION
Six cars will be realigned for the feature event in two and three heat programs(1st and 2nd place finishers) or two heat programs(1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers). Eight cars will be realigned in four heat event programs (1st and 2nd place finshers).
Lapped cars will be moved to the tail in restart line-ups. Cars will be given 1 lap back if they have been lapped in the last green flag series of the race at the completion of a the first offical lap after the restart.
A two spin rule applies in all races.
Cars receiving more than one push off at the start of an event will be moved to the tail of the event unless stopped by the officials.
Pushisg off is not an opportunity to hot lap. Cars should idle until given a signal by a track official to close the field or the waiving of a green flag.
When a pace truck is used for an event, a car should not pass the pace truck.
Drivers competing in five consecutive events of the season will be awarded a provisional that may be used only in the season that it is issued. To keep the provisional active, the driver must compete in 75% of the races to the date of request. Only one provisional starting spot will be awarded per race event. The request will go to the driver that is highest in current Winged Outlaw Warriors Points. Provisionals will only be awarded to registured members and are not transferrable.
Drivers who compete in 100% of the season's events will be awarded a Provisional Award at the WOW Banquet that may be used any time in the next year, as long as they are a registed Winged Outlaw Warriors member.
FEATURE EVENT RAIN OUT
If a racing program should be cancelled after heat races (NO LAPS have been completed in the A-Main) and the event is not being resceduled or refunded, all A-Main qualified cars will receive 80 points for the event and all qualified B-Main cars will receive 50 points.
Prize money will be paid by heat race finishes for the A-Main. i.e.
3 heats = A-Main's first, second and third place money /divided by 3 = First in a heat race
A-Main's fourth, fifth and sixth place money /divided by 3 = Second in a heat race.
The A-Main purse will be segmented into the number of heats. Each segment will be added and divided by the number of heats. This will be the heat finishing position prize money for the event.
A-Mains that the leader has not taken the green flag to begin the 10th lap will be paid by segmenting the running order into the number of heats ran that night and dividing the prize money in the same manner as desribed above.
3 heats = A-Main's first, second and third place money /divided by 3 = Cars scored 1st, 2nd,3rd
A-Main's fourth, fifth and sixth place money /divided by 3 = Cars scored 4th,5th,6th
Any A-Main ran less than the leader crossing under the green flag on the 10th lap will award points and money as described above.
Rules subject to change without notice.
