RACESAVER TIRES are required on ALL FOUR CORNERS OF ALL TSS CARS! NO EXCEPTIONS. LR tire must durometer 35 or higher.
This is not a win at all cost series, PLEASE think before you do it and give each room to race.
You can NOT win a race on the first lap!
All drivers must check in and pay $10 draw fee when you arrive at the track and to get a souvenir flag to give to a kid in the grandstands.
The kid that has the winners autographed flag gets a picture with the winner and a shirt signed by all of the drivers.
Immediately after hot laps all drivers go to the grandstands for driver introductions and pass out the flags to kids.
At driver introductions, always remember to promote fan involvement.
Hero cards, pictures to autograph, candy and small toys for kids please.
Heat Races- All Single car cautions go to the pits.
Features- Two Single car cautions will be black flagged.
All Races- If you stop under caution, you go to the back! The only exception would be if an official stops you.
Red flag - Stop. Do not pass crash site. Cars that have ample time to stop, but still pass the crash site and keep safety crews from reaching the
accident site in a timely manner will be disqualified for that race.
All 360 spins or racing through the inside of the infield marker tires will result in immediate disqualification. No exceptions.
Only crew members on a push vehicle are allowed on the track ( no one is allowed to get off of the vehicle and approach or work on the cars.
Heats- All heats will be single file restarts after one completed lap.
Delaware style restarts:
The leader out front, absolutely no brake checking or you will go to the rear, double file behind with 2nd place to pick a line and make it
obvious. Only after two restarts will we do single file restarts. Absolutely no passing before flag stand; starts or restart, you will go to the
rear, no exceptions!
A main 4 wide Salute to the fans:
All odd numbered rows stay to inside and even numbered rows split to the outside of the row in front of them.
A main, top 3 finishers to the front straightaway for pictures and presentation.
4th & 5th go to scales (just in case).
After returning to the pits the top 3 need to go to the grandstands with their cars to sign autographs.
ANY ISSUES, take it up with Brad Shirley or Danny Merrell ONLY!
Under no circumstances do you take it to track personnel! ANY hot lapping during pace laps for starts or restarts will not be tolerated (including
cleaning your tires off).
Slide jobs and crowding or bullying you way in will be penalized 2 spots (unless you give it back immediately) either at next caution or at the
end of the race and I promise, we WILL call you out so there’s guessing! We will not tolerate any close your eyes moments without
consequences, so just don’t do it.
If you ever take issue with another racer at their car or pit area, you WILL be ineligible for future events.
Remember the driver is responsible for his family and crew. This includes all forms of social media or public displays of negativity absolutely
will not be tolerated! We will handle everything in house only, NO EXCEPTIONS!!!
The field for every event will be predicated from the previous event starting with our annual meeting. In other words, we will start the list for our
next race at the end of each event. Some venues only allow a certain number of cars and this is to reward loyalty for our racers. Anybody that
gives a “maybe” for the next race, you’ll have until the following Tuesday before we announce open spots for the next race.
The series is being sold to tracks for 20 cars in the A Main. If we have more cars wanting to attend, we have to contact the track and see if
they will agree to pay more money for the extra cars.
TSS reserves the right to refuse any competitor at any event. The ruling of TSS is final in all circumstances.
