Standard Operating Procedures
Thank you for entering a UMTR North Competition Event
· Fill out your tech/information card and hand it in to the track. Some tracks will inspect your car, and at some tracks, you’ll just turn-in the card.
· If your race entry fee was not collected at the gate, you will pay that fee when you sign-in at the UMTR Tent
· Required Sponsor Decals are available and will be provided to you on request at each event when you sign-in at the UMTR tent. You MUST display SUMMIT RACING decals on your racecar AND You Must Display the event sponsor decals on your race car, AND You MUST be a UMTR member to be eligible to win the advertised guaranteed payout at a sponsored event. Non-members, and those members who refuse to display the Required Sponsor decals on their race car, are instead, only eligible to win a lesser payout amount that is calculated based on car counts. IF YOU ARE NOT SURE WHICH DECALS YOU MUST DISPLAY ON YOUR RACE CAR FOR MAXIMUM PAYOUT, ASK A UMTR OFFICIAL.
· More Info on Decals – Remember that SPONSORSHIP is a TWO-WAY STREET. In addition to Race Event Sponsors, Some UMTR Sponsors provide prizes for our annual race-season awards party. Members who refuse to display the provided-on-request decals, or in some cases, refuse to run the sponsor products, will not be eligible to earn the sponsor-provided awards that are determined by final points accumulations. IF YOU ARE NOT SURE WHICH DECALS YOU MUST DISPLAY, OR PRODUCTS YOU MUST RUN ON YOUR RACE CAR FOR MAXIMUM AWARDS, ASK A UMTR OFFICIAL.
· Every Racer can choose to enter the Premium Payout Pot. Both classes will have an optional premium payout at each race event. The fee to enter this premium pot is $25. All the money collected in the premium pot will be paid back to the two furthest advanced in each class that have entered in the premium pot. The furthest advanced is 1st place, next furthest advanced gets 2nd place.
· If you are entering in the Quick Stick class, tell us if you are WILLING to race in the Quick 8. The Quick 8 is just a part of that same Quick Stick class. There is NO EXTRA COST for anyone to race in the Quick 8, and there are NO EXTRA RUNS for you to race in the Quick 8. Members will earn points in Quick Stick the same way, when they race in Quick 8, because Quick 8 is just a part of Quick Stick. Your time-trial elapsed times determine whether you’ll qualify for Quick 8. UMTR Members will qualify with preference before any non-members qualify. Non-members may be used to fill vacant spots on the ladder. You have NOTHING TO LOSE by trying to race with the Quick 8. AND You will win an EXTRA $300 for winning the Quick 8 or you will win $140 for being runner-up in Quick 8. If you win Quick 8, which is just a part of round 3 of Quick Stick, you advance to race in round 4 of Quick Stick on the same competition ladder, which means, you can still race to win the first-place money in Quick Stick, in addition to the $300 you already won in Quick 8. Just let us know whether you are WILLING to race in the Quick 8. Your car MIGHT just be quick enough to qualify for Quick 8, because, for some mysterious reason, NOT EVERYONE in Quick Stick has been adventurous enough to try racing with the Quick 8.
· Normally, each UMTR class gets 2 time runs. Then, right after the UMTR Time Trials are over, you must return to the UMTR Tent for a short meeting, prize drawings, and a 50/50 ticket drawing.
· At the meeting, you’ll draw a chip in your class. The random chip draw is used for setting the competition ladder.
· Before you leave the meeting at the UMTR tent, look at your class’s competition ladder, find your spot on the ladder, and KNOW who you are competing against in the first round.
· Now, Go Find, and Talk with your first-round competitor, and KNOW by coin toss or by other agreement which lane you will be running in. And KNOW how to identify your competitor’s race car.
· Then, WHEN YOUR CLASS IS CALLED, DO NOT WAIT IN THE PITS! GO Right away to the announced staging lanes, and line-up for the pre-agreed lane-choice, next to your competitor.
· The Quick 8 cars will be the first four pairs of Quick Stick, So, If you qualified for Quick 8, Line up as one of the first four pairs in the lanes. If you are NOT in the Quick 8, Line up behind the first four pairs in the lanes -round 1, two pairs-round 2, one pair – round 3.
· YOU are responsible for being paired-up with your competitor, in the right place, at the right time. IF YOU STILL DON’T KNOW HOW TO PAIR-UP, ASK A UMTR OFFICIAL FOR HELP BEFORE YOUR CLASS ELIMINATIONS ARE CALLED TO STAGING!
· Your car number and dial-in MUST BE VISIBLE FROM THE TOWER WHEN YOU ARE STAGING, AND MUST ALSO BE ON YOUR WINDSHIELD. ONCE YOU ARE STAGED, YOU HAVE ACCEPTED YOUR TRACK-DISPLAYED DIAL IN
