MSCS RULES FOR 2017 HAVE BEEN PRINTED
Haubstadt, IN. - February 20, 2017. The Midwest Sprint Car Series Rules Committee had it’s annual meeting on February 5th. The purpose was to review the content of the MSCS rule book. Discussions and recommendations brought forth a number of changes. These revisions and new provisions will be in effect as the 2017 racing season opens.
Drivers will receive a copy of the rule book with the purchase of their annual MSCS license. Applications will be available after February 24th. In the meantime a complete set of rules is posted on line at mscssprints.com, the official site for the series.
Additional copies of the rule book have been printed for further distribution and are now available. A copy can be ordered by sending your name and address along with a check or money order for $5.00 to MSCS at 4353 South State Road 57 in Oakland City, IN, 47660.
As an aid to those checking out changes to the rules in the INFO SECTION of the MSCS website, look carefully at rules 1, 3, 8, 10, 11, 13, 20, 22, 24, 25, 26, 35, 36, 39, 40, 42, 43, 44, 47, 48, and 54. These rules cover such concerns as participant requirements and licensing, conduct, safety and safety gear, B and C Mains, and activity during open reds.
That first race of the season is on the spring horizon. Drivers are reminded to arrive at the track on time! Pill draws will close earlier this season to allow extra time for officials to prepare for the events. According to the rules if you are late and miss the pill draw you will be assigned to a heat race group. You must be able to go out with your assigned group in order to receive qualifying laps. You will be assigned to tag the tail of a heat race if you do not qualify.
Another change for this season is in regard to pay-off. This season checks will be mailed to those drivers or owners not wanting to wait to be paid after the races at the track. This should be welcome news to those traveling greater distances or needing to leave earlier.
Any additional changes made to the rules or policies that the officials follow in conducting MSCS sanctioned events will be explained at the drivers meeting prior to each race. That is just one of the major reasons that drivers should always attend these informative meetings.
