RE: ACT Official Scoring Review and Finish

          ……………………………………………………..

 

Enclosed is an official finish according to the rules and procedures of the American Canadian Tour (ACT). Please note the pages and procedure information, which was used by page and item numbers in this scoring re-check and review.

 

According to the ACT Procedures and Rules manual the following is cited as race scoring procedure rules in determining the outcome of the Nutmeg 100 at Waterford Speedbowl concluded on Saturday, August 8, 2009:

             

              Page 12,13; number 3., item a.; b.

 

       YELLOW FLAG –

The yellow flag signifies caution and the flag will be given to the first car passing the starter. After the yellow flag is displayed, cars must hold position.

 

a.       Cars must slow to a cautious speed on all yellow flags. There will be no racing to the yellow flag. (See rule b. below)

b.       If the caution flag is displayed during the white flag lap, all cars will be scored on the basis of the position in which they cross the start/finish line after receiving the yellow flag and white flag, or yellow flag and checkered flag. Those cars receiving the yellow flag and white flag will maintain their positions. Those cars receiving the white flag only will race to the checkered flag with caution. Total distance must be completed and final lap will be completed under caution.

 

Informational Notes:                           

1.   The flags officially control the race event. Radio communication and caution lights etc. may be helpful in the conduct of the event, but the flags are the official determining factor in race control.

2.   Positions are determined on completion of certain advertised distance in a race event, in this case 100 laps.

3.   It was determined that following the wreck with the 55NH and 16CT coming out of t-4 and through the front stretch, the 37VT avoided the wreck and received the white flag.

4.   It was determined that the yellow flag was displayed when the 97NH, running in 8th position at the time, reached the flag stand following the incident between the 55NH and 16 CT. (It is irrelevant whether yellow lights or radio communication are involved…the flags dictate policy.)

5.   All cars in front of the 97NH are allowed, under the rules and procedures as sited above, to continue racing for position (with caution) until they complete the distance and receive a checkered/yellow flag.

6.   All cars that receive the white/checkered flag are not allowed to advance their position or lose position from the time they receive the white/yellow, and are scored. They must hold position and complete the distance, but will remain in the positions they received by scoring under the white/yellow flags regardless of who passes or loses spots in the final lap.

 

Any questions, please contact the ACT office for information.
