    Track officials will use flags for the purpose of providing the drivers with information. Lights may be used in addition to flags. Any car that gains a position prior to the display of any green flag will cause a restart and will be placed in the rear of the field.

    Green Flag (start of race) - In all races, each car must remain in assigned starting position, and the No. 2 qualifier must not beat the No. 1 qualifier to the dropping of the green flag.

    Yellow Flag (Caution) - The yellow flag signifies caution on the track. All cars are to slow down and maintain their position with respect to the other cars on the track. In all regulation events, laps run under caution will not be counted toward the total laps allowed for that race except on the last lap. Any driver who leaves the track while the race is under caution may go into the pits and return to the track without losing a lap, but must go to the rear of the field. When the yellow flag is displayed, cars will have two laps to line up in the order correct to the last completed lap, if not cars will be stopped at the flag stand and lined up properly by the assistant flagman. When the cars are restarted they will take the green flag at the next trip to the flag stand. If any car does not want to line up in the correct position or gets out of position coming back to the green flag, the race will not be restarted and the cars out of position will be given the black flag and will report to the pits immediately.

    Red Flag (Danger - Stop Immediately) - The red flag shall be used when the track is judged unsafe for racing to continue. All cars must stop immediately, regardless of position on the track, and must remain stopped until directed by a track official. Track officials only are allowed on the track during red flag conditions.

    Blue Flag with Diagonal Strip (Move Over) - The blue flag with a diagonal yellow stripe signifies that faster traffic is overtaking the car being signaled, and that car should move to the bottom of the track. If a driver receives the move-over flag on three consecutive laps and does not yield to faster traffic he will be black-flagged. 

    Black Flag (Report to Pits Immediately) - The black flag indicates that your car is creating a potentially hazardous condition on the track, or that you are violating a track rule or procedure or a directive from a track official. If a black-flagged car fails to heed the flag for two laps, scoring for that car will discontinue until further notice is given by that flagman. Penalties for ignoring the black flag will range from one lap to disqualification, at the discretion of the race director.
    When a black-flagged car enters the pits, he will be directed by the pit steward as to the reason for the black flag and the appropriate actions to be taken. If the car is able to return to the track, scoring for that car will resume at that time. Receiving a black-flag does not automatically result in loss of purse monies or points, other than that incurred due to loss of position while in the pits.

    White Flag (One Lap Remaining) - The white flag will be displayed when the leader has started the last lap of the race. No car may receive any assistance after the white flag has been displayed.

    Checker Flag (End of Race) - The checkered flag will be displayed at the completion of the race. When the checkered flag is given the to leader, the remainder of the field receives the flag in the same lap. Upon entering the infield area, the top three finishers in any feature must go immediately and directly to the scale house to be weighed. Failure to go directly to the scales will result in disqualification.
