2) One (1) driver per bike - per class. One (1) driver entry per class, no switching drivers, no double entries in a class. A substitute rider may enter if the original rider becomes ill or injured at officials discretion. Riders under no circumstances can be switched to gain a competitive advantage.

3) Full face helmet with shield or shatter proof goggles. – Standard sunglasses/prescription glasses are not recommended as the only source of protection.

4) Shoes above the ankle such as boots, high tops, or hiking shoes are recommended. Sandals and vans are not allowed.

5) Long pants required, no sweat pants or shorts allowed.

6) Long sleeve shirts REQUIRED - Race Jackets / Leathers preferred.

7) NO ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES allowed in the pits or staging area. NO DRUGS or other ILLEGAL SUBSTANCES shall be permitted on premises. Drivers shall not use any of the substances above before or during the race. Any driver that is impaired will be disqualified and fees will not be returned.

8) Anyone caught cheating and entering their bike in a lower CC class will be disqualified and their fees will not be refunded. Driver and owner may also be suspended/banned from future FSA events. Once a bike has qualified, then breaks, substituting another bike in it's place is illegal and will result in disqualification, fees will not be refunded, suspension from future events.

9) Crossing the center-line of the track during a qualifying or elimination pass will result in disqualification.

10) Red lights - a participant who completes a red light pass will be recorded as an official loss. If you stage your bike and the red light illuminates, do not move. Officials will check the beams for obstructions and re-run the pair. If your bike lunges forward regardless if it is a roll or pass it will be recorded as an official loss.

11) Only 1 number per bike. NO switching number plates on vehicles, doing so will result in disqualification, fees will not be refunded, suspension from future events.

12) Competitors both 2 & 4 stroke in their respective cc groupings have the option of moving up and competing within those class groups above them.

13) Participants bikes must be accompanied by a team member at all times in the staging lanes. Track officials or competitors are not responsible to move your bike forward.

14) Manually pushing the bike by a team member once pre-staged is NOT permitted and will result in disqualification. Rider must stage the bike unassisted.

15) If a maintenance issue arises with your bike during qualifying or preliminary heat, you will have 2 minutes to make ANY necessary repairs to the bike. Once an official is notified or becomes aware of the issue the 2 minutes will be announced and begin. Once the 2 minutes expires you will be disqualified if the bike is not ready to race.

16) Tech Inspection – will be held immediately following the finals on the top 2 finishers in all limited classes. Do not return to your pit. Proceed to tech inspection upon completing your final race. Not doing so will result in disqualification. All participants must be prepared with replacement parts to assemble motors after random cc tech inspections. This includes head gaskets at owners expense. Only owner/rider are allowed in FSA trailer during tech inspection.

Tech can include:
Class requirements
Bore and Stroke
Fuel
Frame density

17) Records - may be ran during test and tune, HOWEVER the pass can only be backed up during a qualifying pass or eliminations pass during race day of the event (to include index and bracket racing). If you are attempting a record pass you MUST notify a track official in the staging lanes so the tower can be aware of the record attempt. If you feel you have set a record you MUST park the bike at the "Tech Station" and seek out an official immediately upon the completion of the run for inspection and time slip verification. Do not return to your trailer. Limited class participants cannot make a pass with a bottle mounted on the bike and have a record recognized. All other conditions related to a limited pass found in the official classes section apply. The back up percentage for a record pass is 2%.

18) Protests - can only be made by registered contestants in a given race. Protests must be filed with the event director within 30 minutes of the event results. Protests will be accepted based on completing the protest form in writing and tendering a protest fee of $200. Official’s protests may be entered at any time during the event at no charge by the proper officials. Each protest must specify the violation of FSA rules, procedures, or race result, which is alleged and must be accompanied with a protest fee of $200.
If an inspection or review proves a protested ATV to be out of its proper class, protest fees will be refunded, less expenses, and the non-complaint entry will be subject to such action as the event director or technical committee may impose, including but not limited to possible disqualifications, fines, suspension and/or revocation of competition privileges for up to 1 year.
However, in the case of a protested party found in compliance with the requirements of its class of competition will be entitled to the protest fee.
The race director will not accept verbal protests or protests which are not accompanied by the required fee.
FSA reserves the right to inspect, review, or protest participants it determines, in its sole and absolute discretion, is frivolous, or intentional abuse of current competition rules to otherwise gain some unfair competitive advantage. There will be ZERO tolerance on engine size. Example: 505.001cc & 770.001 is illegal.

FUEL CHECK

* All bikes competing in classes, which require a fuel check, must have a method to provide a fuel sample from the fuel line system. Bikes must have sufficient fuel in the tank to sample or the pass will be deemed illegal with a disqualification following. Sample must be able to be taken from line between carburetor and fuel pump or petcock. On fuel injected systems, the sample may be taken from the low-pressure (return) side of the system, between the injectors and the fuel tank return inlet. Use of a “Pingel” Fuel Sampler (item number PFS1) for Lectrons application or (item number PFS2) for Mikuni/Keihin 5/16-inch application, or equivalent to enable sample collection is strongly recommended.

* PROPYLENE OXIDE
The use of propylene oxide is prohibited in all categories.

The use of Coxoc, Superblue 007, or any fuel additive mixed with approved fuel to provide a performance advantage is prohibited in all categories.

* RACING GASOLINE
Only racing gasoline that appears on the approved FSA list is permitted. No mixing of fuels or additives. All gasoline will be checked against a FSA sample, then checked with a hydrometer for manufacture recommended density weight, as well as a Digitron for legality. Fuel drawn from participants tank must meet manufacturers legal density weight description for that specific fuel. Corrected density weights will be utilized for temperature variances. Racing gasoline is defined for purposes of the rulebook as a mixture of hydrocarbons only. Racing gasoline is tested and certified at FSA events through the application of various chemical analyses as considered appropriate by fuel check personnel. Gasoline is a good electrical insulator, or dielectric, and its relative effectiveness as an insulator is represented by its Dielectric Constant. The average D.C. for the hydrocarbons which comprise gasoline is 2.025. This is defined as a reading of 0 with the certified FSA fuel meter. FSA maintains a reference book of dielectric readings for approved fuels. Fuel samples must measure within + or – 0.10 of reference book specifications on the certified FSA fuel meter.

Mark, it is legal by approval. Anything similar to RE's stem relocation method will be allowed. I want to maintain a certain standard if they are going to be relocated.

These classes are very similar if not identical to those run at Outlaw. Class titles are the only differences to better identify the cc breaks. I could see a couple classes added in the future that would break up the CC's even more if the support is there, for example: 506-550cc for the 450 based bikes and 736-825cc for the raptor/DS based bikes.

Raptors and DS's have to have the complete front plastic, same as Outlaw rules. The tank topper & hood mounts to the plastic, the plastics bolts to the sub frame/radiator bracket, zip ties will work.

Raptors plastic need to look like this

450 based bikes only need the nose piece

Yes, the only requirements of the 300' classes (class 1 - 6) are that you have a OEM frame and meet the cc limit of the class. None of the classes are weighted, none require front brakes or in frame exhaust. Aside from the cc similarities, these 300' classes do not resemble the Sportsman Division classes run on the hill, they are much more relaxed. I will post the chassis requirements again, if it is not listed, it is permitted.


4) CHASSIS - OEM frame required with double or single front A arms mounted in OEM position. Shocks replaced with struts are allowed. Rear OEM type swing arm of any length mandatory. Light weight components can be bolted on such as extended swingarms, a-arms, subframe, aluminum axles, steering stems, etc.. No rigid extended front ends or rigid rear swing arm sections permitted in OEM frame classes. Sub frames, foot pegs must be bolted on, not welded. Frame can be cut to remove unwanted tabs/tubes for weight saving, but tubes cannot be replaced. Any additional tabs that require welding MUST be approved prior by FSA or the chassis will be deemed illegal for competition. Any relocation of steering stem, radiator, oil tank, battery, etc., MUST be approved by FSA prior or chassis will be illegal. OEM plastic hood piece and tank cover mounted in OEM position is required. Wheely bars allowed in all classes.

• Definition of OEM Chassis
* Original Chassis with all mounts and equipment in the OEM position except for the following modifications only:
Frame straps across the front of TRX450R.
Relocation of radiator (must be approved by FSA prior)
Relocation of oil resevoir tank (must be approved by FSA prior)
Battery relocation within frame.
Removal of cable hangers and other brackets not used.
No geometry changes.
No tube replacement.
Smoothing of welds for cosmetic purposes only.

If we have 4 or more racers show up that bikes fit the cc break down of 506-550cc (450 based) or 736-825cc (Raptor/DS) we will provide a class for them.
