2019 ZIMMER AUTOGROUP Tri-City Running Rules and Agreement

* With exceptional racing and positive feedback from racers and fans we are excited to keep our race format the same. However, new for the 2019 season 4 new tires will be allowed at race #1 only.  For each of the remaining races, 2 new tires per race date will be allowed. Tires will be stamped by the tech officials and must be visible on all tires at each race date.  Also, we are thrilled to introduce “CONE” restarts. The Group Qualifying format will remain the same. After all cars have gone through pre-qualifying technical inspection they will then pre-stage and be directed out onto the track in groups of no more than 6.  A specific time period will be given and your best lap in your group will be your qualifying time. Qualifying times and points awarded will remain the same. The top 4 even numbered qualifying positions will start at the back of the A Qualifier race. The top 4 odd numbered qualifying positions will start at the back of the B Qualifier race. All other starting positions will be filled by means of a random draw. These qualifier races lap amounts will be determined by car count. They will also determine starting positions for the main event. There will be no points awarded for the qualifier races. The finishing order of the qualifying races will be inverted to set the field for the main event.

* Any car that comes into the pits, no matter the reason under caution will automatically go the rear of the field. Any cars involved in a crash/caution must also go to the rear of the field.

* All restarts after cautions will be referred to the last completed lap and lapped cars will not be mixed in with lead lap cars.
