2015 Rules
The rules package put forth at the beginning of the 2014 season is valid for three years, 2014-2016. This was done at the majority of the racers requests to have a rule package that doesn’t vary, so that you don’t have to alter your cars and spend valued resources to be legal.

In addition, track management has listened to the majority of racers who desire more clarification of the current rules. So, that’s what we are doing by giving the racers the “more clarification” that they have asked for.

The most notable things you are going to see in the clarified 2015 Rules are:
-Structure and uniformity to the written rules from class to class, which makes the rule book easier to follow for racers and officials.
-Deletion of redundant rules.
-Deletion and clarification of contradicting rules.
-Rules that may encourage non-local racers to race with us and further our car-count going forward.

Therefore, build your cars or repair your cars based on the current 3-year rules that you requested. If the rules say you were allowed to do XYZ in 2014 but NOT in 2015, that still applies to the written rules.

As you can see, we are listening to you, the racers, in balancing your requests. We look forward to a great 2015 racing season.

Thank you,
I-25 Speedway staff

Jan 14, 2014 - Rules for 2014 are posted By Mike Bible

The division rules for the 2014 race season were submitted just a few hours ago. The rules are are now posted and available to you! They are in the same place as always; in the "For Racers" tab in the main toolbar above.

The general rules have not yet been provided but will be coming soon I'm told.

Jan 1, 2014 - 2014 RULES UPDATE By Mike Bible

As the 2014 race season draws near it's clear that many race teams are anxiously awaiting the unveiling of the 2014 rules package for the I-25 Speedway divisions.

I reached out to track manager Charlie Wilson about this again two days ago. Wilson wished to express to all competitors that track staff is scrutinizing and correcting exact verbiage in the official 2014 rules for all divisions and that all efforts are being made to furnish them as soon as possible. Wilson apologizes for the delay in posting the rules, as he said, “It’s important that we get this right for the racers”.

Wilson went on to specify that there shouldn’t be any “surprise” changes made to any single division.  Charlie was up front that some of the largest changes will be to the general rules, specifically natured in post-race interviews. “It’s important that drivers respect the sport, the track, their competitors, sponsors and the fans” he stated.

Until the rules are posted Charlie has made himself available for questions at 719-429-5959 and Danny Sartor at 719-406-2093.
