For Bikes & Quads:

We don’t make any racer in A class move up to PRO CLASS the following year. We do think the top 2 racers in previous years classes woodsmen, C, and B need to move up a class from where they raced in previous season. If you don’t think you should or have a concern please see Steve Stiller or call him at 412-607-0960. If you have a concern we will look into it on a case by case individual bases.
A rider may protest to move to a lower class if not he/she feels they are not capable of competing in the higher class. No rider will be able to move after having raced four races already in a particular class. Each case will be considered individually at a meeting with the organization. We also have the final say in moving a rider up a class if found to be advanced for a class.
The rider must be large enough and mature enough to control his/her machine at all times and ride it safely. This includes stopping, starting, standing still, mounting and dismounting. The referee has the authority to disqualify a rider that cannot safely control his/her motorcycle or quad.
If any one that runs C class finishes in the top 20 overall, when there is at least 100 adult entries you MUST MOVE UP a class at the next race you participate in and you will loose all points PERIOD. UNLESS YOUR A YOUTH THAT MOVED UP TO ADULT. We will not tolerate sandbaggers in the C classes. So if you think you may even have a chance to top 20 overall I strongly suggest you don’t race in C class!! AWRCS has final say on all outcome of the situation.
You must be the age as of January 1st of that year to race in the class. (I.E. – If you are 39 on January 1st, but turn 40 on January 15th, you can run the 30-39 year old class for the entire year; or my can bump up to the 40+ class if you desire).
A youth or amateur rider is eligible to race in no more than two classes in a race day – (I.E. – As above, if you are 9 on January 1st, but turn 10 on January 15th, you can run the pee wee class AND run the youth class if you so desire and your parent/legal guardian allows). You will need to fill out both registration cards and pay to race in each class ($25.00 each = $50.00).

The machine a rider brings to the starting line is considered their race machine for the event. If any rider is found to be switching machines, their results will be excluded from the race.
All ATV’s must be equipped with a functional tether type mechanical kill device attached to the vehicle and to the rider so that the engine ignition is cut off at any time a rider becomes dismounted from the ATV.
There will be NO riding of the course, pit area or any other portion of the property on Friday night of race weekend or the day of the event. (See pit riding rules above).
Riders may walk or ride a bicycle around track prior to racing. Only race officials are permitted to ride on ANY portion of the track day of event or before.
If a rider leaves the track for any reason, the rider must re-enter from the exact location they exited.
The marked course is within 20 feet of all arrows. Anytime arrows are posted on both sides of the track, riders MUST stay between these arrows. Whenever there are added markers to the trail (ribbon, banners, stakes, hay barrels), rider must stay between these as well. If a rider deviates greater than 20 feet from trail, penalty will be assessed.
If a motocross track is involved in the course, it is required that each rider go over each jump as well as stay on the track, going around all marked turns or a penalty will be assessed.
Any rider encountering a “bottle neck” or “traffic jam” due to track difficulties may deviate from track greater than 20 feet, but must re-enter the course as soon as possible. Upon approaching this section on next lap, rider must follow original trail. Short cutting in these areas will result in a penalty. A “bottle neck” is only defined as a section of the course that becomes impassable due to riders being stuck on difficult terrain.
An official may use his discretion during the race to change any bottleneck from its original track lay-out. Please be alert of this and pay attention when coming upon this particular track location on your following lap.
Marking, cutting, or changing the designated course from it original appearance will be cause for a penalty.

Race officials check off each rider that is on the starting line, if a rider is not found on the starting line at the time of the race, they will be assessed for a penalty at the end of the race.
All starts are dead engine, except for the mini riders.
Have your transponder mounted under your visor using duct tape. Remove all other transponders so the wrong one isn’t scanned, causing you to not be scored for the race or causing our scoring system error.
Hold your head in the forward direction to allow the scoring system to work quickly.
Enter the “scoring loop” in an orderly, single line fashion.Trying to race through scoring will not get you ahead any faster and may cause for you to not be scored on any particular lap. ANY RACER COMING INTO SCORING FAST MAY BE PENALIZED BY SCORING OFFICIAL. IF YOU THINK YOU MAY OF CAME IN TOO HOT, YOU PROBABLY HAVE !!
Do not yell at the scoring officials, or hold your bike/quad revved up. This does not get you out any faster. When leaving the scoring area, do not roost the workers intentionally. Leave in an orderly manner. You got miles of track to hold it open!!
The scoring tent is not a pit stop. Do not stop within the track of the other racers. Pull off the track completely. Do not have pit crews throw water, hold goggles or pit boards out in this area. This is a NO PIT CREW area.
If you hit a scoring official, you will be penalized period! No questions!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If a rider is towed in, the lap does not count.
No passing after the checkered flag finish line banner, to the scanner. The scanner will score in the order that you crossed the finish line banner.
Once the checkered flag goes out, riders are given a reasonable amount of time to complete their final lap. The amount of time does vary depending on the length of the course. This time will be a minimum of thirty minutes from the time the checkered flag is thrown.
A rider may get assistance on the track from their Pit Crew or spectators, but must cross the finish line under the bike’s own power or by the rider physically alone.
If a rider is towed in from the track, that lap will not count. If the rider is able to get the machine back started during the race, the rider must re-enter the track at the scoring tent.
If in the referee’s opinion, it is necessary to stop an event after 50 percent of the total time has been covered, the race may be considered completed. Riders will be scored according to their position on the lap preceding the one before the red flag.
ENDING THE RACE- The race is officially deemed over 1 hour after the checkered flag or when the sweep rider returns, whichever comes first.
Once results are posted at registration, there is a twenty minute protest period. If there are any problems seen with results, this is the only time that problems will be corrected prior to handing out plaques. Once plaques are handed out, if any changes are then made to the results, plaques will not be re-collected to be handed out to the proper persons.
YOU, THE RIDER ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR CHECKING YOUR RESULTS BEFORE YOU LEAVE THE TRACK FOR THE DAY.
Results will be posted no later than Sunday evening and you will have until 8:00 p.m. the Monday after the race weekend to email DINEEN (see CONTACT tab for email address) with any scoring issues.
At 8:01 p.m. the Monday after the race weekend, RESULTS ARE FINAL and no changes can be or will be made beyond this point. The only way this will be extended is if there is an issue with uploading the results and/or the viewing of the results, this includes year end results. There will be a message posted on the website if this occurs.
Penalties will be assessed by the officials only based on the severity of the offense.

When moving from mini to youth or youth to adult their previous number cannot be guaranteed.
