This is recreational racing. Cost Containment is our primary objective. Respect, for competitors, fans and promoters, is fundamental to our success. We will do what is necessary to produce a good competitive show each night. We will not tolerate overtly aggressive driving. The willingness to give racing room is a defining aspect of the CRSA Races.
Sprint car racing is a very emotional sport. As such, good sportsmanship is the foundation of any competitive event. Participation in the idea of good sportsmanship is demanded from all participants, drivers, owners, parents, sponsors, pit crews and officials. We will treat all participants with respect and expect the same in return. A racer‘s pit area is his castle, therefore please stay out of another racers pit area, especially after you have been involved in an incident with that racer. Drivers, remember that you (regardless of age) are responsible for the actions of your crew, owners, parents and sponsors.
In an effort to enforce our beliefs in the GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP policy the CRSA has set the following system of penalties:
A: Threatening, obscene gestures or foul language aimed at an official or competitor- $100 – $500. B: Rough Riding- $100 – $500.
C: Fighting in the pits or on the track- $200.—$2000. D: Physical Contact with a CRSA official- $200.-$2000.
E: Disqualification and/or suspension may be additional penalties levied.
Suspension will be for a specific number of CRSA sanctioned events and rainouts do not count as a missed event. Fines, Disqualifications and suspensions are at the discretion of the CRSA Officials and Competition Committee. You may appeal your case to the CRSA Management or Owner. All fines levied must be paid or waived by the CRSA Management or Owner before you can resume racing with the CRSA.
The absence of a specific rule does not imply approval, consent or permission regarding the subject.
