American Powersports ATV Series

2018 APCS RULES & REGULATIONS

 

APAS (American Powersports ATV Championship Series) is a racing body that encourages family’s that share the same passion to come together and compete in a fair fun atmosphere.   We understand that racing is racing but in all fairness, petty arguing about rules, track conditions, weather, someone’s oversized engine in their quad, etc. is not something anyone wants to hear.  Bear in mind, we all spend lots of money to come out on the weekend and enjoy ourselves, the last thing any of us need is drama.  Please help keep this professional.

Co-sanction AMA Event Participation

Races that are co-sanctioned with other promoting bodies will allow riders to compete and be scored only within the primary organization they are represented by.  Each promoter will be responsible for scoring their respective class riders for that race.   In the case of an AMA recognized event, riders will receive 30 points for finishing the race. Racers will be expected to acquire your AMA membership/transponders and follow the rules and regulations for the governing body promoting the AMA national. This is established to promote larger races and encourage local series in nationally recognized competitions.

Cheating will not be tolerated, and fines will be applied at the referee’s discretion.   

Arguing with the referee or track personnel is grounds for immediate rider disqualification and removal from the event.

2018 OFFICIAL RULES

  1. SCORING

Racers receive overall points based on their finish position in BOTH moto’s, (EXCEPT with heat races).   After racing both moto’s, both finish positions are added together.   The racer with the lowest score receives 1st place, the racer with the second lowest score receive 2nd place, etc. Example:  Racer “A” received a 1st (Moto 1) and a

 

2nd (Moto 2).  Racer “B” received a 2nd (Moto 1) and a 3rd (Moto 2).  Racer “AA would receive a 1st place Overall (1st + 2nd = 3) while Racer “B” would receive 2nd Overall (2nd + 3rd = 5).

Second moto’s ALWAYS counts more than the first.  This is necessary in the event of a tie after both moto’s.  Racers must finish at least one moto in order to score an overall finish position. Those who DNF (or DNS) both moto’s will receive (0) points overall for that race.

 

Transponder Scoring:  The Transponder tracks your personal practice and race results to the millisecond.  It is the most widely used timing system for MX, motocross, enduro, snow cross, super cross, ATV/Quad and more.   ALL racers MUST use a transponder in order to be scored. Transponders are available for purchase or rental. Transponder pricing is $90.00 to purchase (own) or $25.00 race weekend (rental) with $100.00 deposit for rental which is refunded when the transponder is returned.  Contact mylaps.com to purchase a transponder and activate service. (THIS IS FOR THE TEXAS NATIONAL ONLY, WE WILL NOT USE TRANSPONDERS FOR OUR RACES)

 

YOU MUST COMPLETE ONE FULL LAP UNDER YOUR OWN POWER AND MAKE HALF OF THE RACE IN ORDER TO BE SCORED FOR THAT MOTO.  IF YOU CRASH OR HAVE MECHINICAL ISSUES DURING YOUR RACE AND THE CLASS AFTER YOURS HAS GONE ACROSS THE FINISH LINE, YOU WILL BE SCORED AS A DNF (DID NOT FINISH).   A RIDER CAN NOT BE TOWED ACROSS THE FINISH LINE FOR POINTS.  EXAMPLE:  IF YOUR RACE IS 4 LAPS YOU MUST COMPLETE HALF OF YOUR MOTO (2) LAPS UNDER YOUR OWN POWER TO BE SCORED.

 

  1. POINTS

Points will be awarded for each race in each class as follows:

1st – 30 points

2nd – 25 points

3rd – 21 points

4th – 18 points

5th – 16 points

6th – 15 points

7th – 14 points and so on. Down to the last qualifying position.

 

In the event of an end of year tie in total points, the tie will be broken by determining which rider had the higher number of first place finishes for the entire year.  If a tie still exists, then the number of second place finishes for the entire year will be used, and so forth until the tie is resolved. If there continues to be a tie after checking finishes, the placing at the last race of the season will determine the tie breaker. Points cannot, under any circumstance, be carried from one class to another.  This means you lose all points if you move to another class.

 

  1. HEAT RACES

Heat races will be run in any class that has more racers than the starting gate will hold. Heat races will qualify racers for the main event.  Example: Twenty (20) racers enter a class. The starting gate wills generally hold only Twelve (12) racers. These twenty (20) racers will be divided up into two heat races with ten (10) racers in each heat. The top five (5) racers will automatically advance to the main event.  The other five (5) racers from each heat will run a Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ) to determine the last two (2) racers who will advance to the main

 

event.   Racers who do not qualify at the LCQ are finished at this point and will receive points as 13th place on, as determined by their LCQ finish.  In this heat race format, only the main event will determine overall winners.

Those advancing to the main event from the LCQ need to understand how they will be scored on their LCQ.  The racer scoring 1st place in an LCQ will be assigned a final position for that moto which is one place behind the number of racers who advanced directly to the main event.   Example: Twenty (20) racers enter a class.  The gate will hold on twelve (12).   Therefore, there will be two heats with ten (10) racers in each heat. The top five (5) from each heat will advance directly to the main event. The rest will run in an LCQ.   The top two (2) from this LCQ will advance to the main event. These two (2) from the LCQ will receive an 11th and 12th place finish for their

first moto (for determining gate choice only). The top five (5) from each heat will advance directly to the main event.  The rest will run in an LCQ.   The top two (2) from this LCQ will advance to the main event.  These two (2) from the LCQ will receive an 11th and12th place finish for their first moto (for determining gate choice only).   After moto 1, there will be two 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th with the main determining overall standings.   Racers must finish at least one moto in order to score an overall finish position.  Those who DNF (or DNS) both moto’s will receive (0) points overall for that race.

 

  1. RACE STAFF/PROMOTER/OFFICIAL AUTHORITY

 

The promoter, finish line staff, and QR referee have the authority to disqualify or penalize any racer acting inappropriately on or off the race track.  Under NO circumstances will any verbal, reckless or drug/alcohol induced abusive behavior be tolerated. Violators will be disqualified and/or removed from the event without refund.  NO FIGHTING WILL BE TOLERATED!!  This is a family oriented organization and our goal is to promote a fun environment for all attending. All riders, their family/friends /team mates must stay clear of the race course and the infield of the race course at all APCS events Saturday and Sunday. Failure to abide by all APCS event rules will result in disqualification and/or removal from the event without refund.  Remember parents and pit crews your actions can affect your rider, depending on the incident the rider may also be disqualified because of the pit crew/parent actions.

  1. REQUIRED RACE EQUIPMENT

 

  • Numbers – Number plates are required on the front bumper, rear grab bar, and rear fenders.  If plates cannot be read or not on quad at starting gate, you will be DQ’D.  No exceptions. Number plates must either be white with black numbers or back plates with white numbers.
  • Safety Gear –Helmet, boots, goggles, long sleeve shirt and pants are required of all racers during practice and racing.
  • Kill Switch - A tether type kill switch is required to be installed on each quad being used for either practice or racing.
  • Nerf Bars – Nerf bars or floorboards are required on all quads being used for either practice or racing.
  • Tech Inspection – All machines must past tech inspection by a APAS official prior to the races starting on Sunday morning.  Tech inspection is available during practice on Saturday and Sunday morning of the event.  If you do not have tech inspection approval, you will not be allowed to start the race.

 

  1. LAPPED RIDERS/UNSPORTSMANLIKE CONDUCT

 

In the event you are being lapped, you must allow the faster rider to pass you (move to the right). Failure to do so may result in disqualification or loss of position.  Riders will be penalized for the reckless operation of their machine.  UNSPORTSMANLIKE CONDUCT or the deliberate ramming, blocking or intentional contact will result in a penalty. TEAM TACTICS including blocking or allowing another rider to pass in order to affect the outcome of the race will NOT be tolerated and a penalty will be given. The event must be witnessed by a track official or track staff for penalties to be assessed. Penalties will be given by Race Promoter or APCS Officer.  NO penalty will be assessed based off spectator information only.

  1. TRACK BOUNDARIES

 

Riders must stay on marked course.  If a rider loses control and goes out of bounds or is knocked off the track in a tangle with another rider, he/she must re-enter the track at the same place (or as close as physically possible to it).  Failure to do so could result in a docked lap or docked positions. If it is determined that the rider INTENTIONALLY cuts a section of the track, either to avoid a track obstacle (i.e. jump/whoops) or to gain positions, the rider will be docked positions, docked laps or disqualified. The race official will review each case and assess the fairest penalty for that case. The event must be witnessed by a track official or track staff for penalties to be assessed. Penalties will be given by Race Promoter or APCS Officer.  NO penalty will be assessed based off spectator information only. This is not NASCAR where repairs to your quad are allowed during the race. You are allowed to pull over into the infield (middle of the track) to put your chain on for instance but you are not allowed to repair your quad or fill up with gas.  The event must be witnessed by a track official, APCS staff or track staff for penalties to be assessed. No penalty will be assessed based of spectator information only.   All riders their family and friends must stay clear of the race course and the infield of the race course at all APCS events Saturday and Sunday. Failure to abide by all APCS event rules will result in disqualification and/or removal from the event without refund.

  1. DNF and DNS

 

DNF – (Did Not Finish) – Riders must finish the moto on the same quad they started on. The use of two or more quads in one heat or moto is not permitted.  However, a second quad may be used for additional heat races or moto’s, if needed.  The same quad that lines up at the gate is the same quad that must cross the finish line of that moto.   Rider must complete ONE FULL LAP (under their own power) and half of required laps or they will receive a DNF for the moto.

DNS – (Did Not Start) If a rider fails to start a moto when the gate drops the rider will receive a DNS for the race or if they do not cross the starting gate before a lap is completed by the other racers.

  1. FLAGS

 

Green - Green flag signals that the race is in progress.

Yellow - Yellow flag signals the racer should take caution and not attempt to gain a position or jump any jumps in this section of the track.  This is usually used in a particular section of the track when an accident has occurred.   Any jumping, passing, or aggressive riding during a section of the track with a yellow flag will result in loss of position(s).

 

 

 

Red - Red flag indicates there is a problem on the track and the race must end.  If the leader has not yet completed one half of the total laps, the race will be restarted, all riders shall return to the starting gate. If the leader has completed at least one-half the required laps and a red flag comes out, the race is over.

Black - Black flag is used to signal an individual rider to pull off the track.  The rider must come to the scoring tower to meet with the referee to discuss the cause of their disqualification.

White - White flag is a courtesy flag that signals the rider to “take another lap”.

Checkered - Checkered flag means that the race is over.  ALWAYS RACE TO THE CHECKERED FLAG!

 

  1. PROTEST

 

It is NOT up to the race promoter/official to inspect all “possible” illegal quad modifications.  If an official can visually see an illegal situation, the official will do their best to get the situation rectified. It will be up to that official on how to proceed.

  1. Scoring Inquiry/Protest: Scoring inquiries must be received by the computer personnel within 15 minutes of the completion of the moto in question. All scores are final after the results have been posted for a 15-minute period unless there is a “keypunch error” by computer personnel.
  2. Age Protest: A protest over a rider’s age must be received in writing along with a $50.00 cash deposit before APCA will perform any research.  The “15 minute” rule also applies in this situation. If found to not be in the legal age range of a class, the rider will be disqualified and lose all accumulated points for the series.
  3. Mechanical Protest:

All protests concerning mechanical rules must be received in writing within 15 minutes of the completion of the moto in which the protested machine competed.  A “Mechanical Protest Form” must be completed and a $200.00/$500.00 non-refundable cash deposit is required for each discrepancy listed. APCS officials will not pursue verbal protests. Once the protest has been filed, the APCS official will appoint a APCS mechanic to watch the teardown of the engine by the owner and will measure/inspect the cause of protest.  If the second moto for that class has not been raced, the machine will be parked in a designated area. The machine may leave the designated area only to compete in the second moto (failure to bring the machine directly back to the designated area will result in automatic disqualification).  After the second moto has been completed, the APCS mechanic will watch the teardown by the owner and will measure/inspect the cause of protest. Only the rider and/or guardian, the protestor, and APCS officials will be allowed during the teardown.  Once the tear down is complete, it is the owner’s responsibility to put the bike back together.

Visual Protests: $100.00 per item or component protested

Technical Protests: $100.00 per item or component protested

If applicable, teardown fees:

  • $200.00 two-stroke/$500.00 four-stroke
  • $100.00 required engine removal

 

If an engine discrepancy is found, then the rider will be disqualified from the event. The protestor will be refunded $100.00/$250.00 of their cash deposit with the remaining monies being split between the mechanic and APCS.  If a rider is found with an engine discrepancy again at another event, the rider will be disqualified from that event and will lose all accumulated points for the series.

 

If NO engine discrepancy is found, then the rider will be awarded $100.00/$250.00 of the deposit and the remaining monies will be split between the APCS and the mechanic.

 

Any protests/complaints received from individuals who have been consuming alcohol or are abusive to track/APCS officials and staff will be IGNORED.

 

  1. LAPS

The Race Promoter will determine how many laps are to be run by each class at each particular event.

  1. ADVANCEMENT

 

The APCS referee/official will determine which racers MUST advance to the next class.  The APCS referee/official will have the authority to force a rider to “move up” to a more advanced class (anytime during the race season) if the promoter feels the rider is too advanced for his/her current class.  Points will not be transferred to new class. Those entering the Open Expert class must stay in this class for the year unless permission is granted by the APCS referee.  Those in other classes may switch to another class at future races with approval from the APCS referee.

  1. STARTING GATE

 

  • A rider may NOT have assistance at the starting gate by any persons, including parents, mechanics, guardians, etc. Assistance is defined as helping a rider start the race as the gate is dropped.
  • All non-riders (excluding starting gate staff) must back away from the starting gate once the riders are being “checked” by the gatekeeper. No pushing or other assistance will be allowed.  Everyone will be asked to step three (3) feet behind the rider so not to interfere with the race.
  • No gate prep allowed passed the starting gate. If a rider or anyone assisting the rider goes beyond the starting gate, the rider will be forced to start staggered behind the other riders.
  • No tools are allowed on dirt starting areas. Brooms are allowed on cement starting pads.
  • Holds are permitted. “Two-minute rule” applies if a rider fails to report to starting line during staging, a representative must be present to hold their starting position for the race.  The starting of the race will not be held up for longer than two minutes.  It can only be called once during the countdown to dropping the gate.  Example: Rider A holds up gate for two minutes, no one else on the gate can ask for two minutes after Rider A’s two minutes have started, nor can the second class if it is a double gate. The second gate will drop whether all riders are ready or not.

 

 

 

  1. MINORS

 

A Legal Guardian must be present at all times during specified moto, to ensure rider is secure from start to finish.  If legal guardian of minor is not present, minor will not be allowed to race and will be disqualified.  All guardians will be required to sign a minor release for all APCS events.

  1. AGE VERIFICATION

 

Riders must be at least 16 years old to compete on a 450cc machine or above.  For Amateur and Youth classes, age is based on the rider’s age on the date of the event.  However, riders, including youth, who change age during the season, may stay in the class they started the year in, or may advance to the older division.  Youth riders may advance to the next higher age class in the Youth Division prior to their age change, only if they will be eligible to do so at any time during the year.  Once a rider moves to the next higher age class, they may not move back to the lower age class.  Points accumulated in one class DO NOT advance with the rider to another class.

Age verification may be required.  Please bring a copy of original birth certificate and/or driver’s license to your first event.  Failure to provide adequate proof of age could result in disqualification.  Be sure to check the rules before entering a APCS event.   Exceptions to these rules can only be changed by the APCS referee.

  1. TECHNICAL INSPECTION

 

All quads MUST BE inspected BEFORE going to the gate.  This rule will be strictly enforced.  Tech inspections will generally be held after practice and prior the race.  If a racer shows up to the race gate without proper tech inspection approval stickers, he/she will not be allowed to race and WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.

  1. MINIMUM FIVE (5) ENTRIES

 

All classes must have five (5) entries for the class to be gated by itself.   Anything less than five (5) entries will be gated with a competitive class and the gate may be dropped separately.   The class with less than five (5) entries will be scored separately.  Pro Am, Expert, and year end contingencies for classes with LESS THAN three (3) overall contenders, will be at the discretion of APCS.

  1. NEW QUADS

 

New quads are being manufactured all the time.  Any new quad coming into the market must first be evaluated by the race promoter/official in order to be considered “legal” in a “non-open” class.

  1. FAMILY ORIENTED

 

APCS and is a family oriented organization and at all times will promote a family friendly atmosphere.  Unsportsmanlike conduct will NOT be tolerated!

 

  1. INSURANCE

APCS does NOT provide liability or ANY insurance coverage of any kind.  Before racing, please be sure you are properly insured and/or covered.  If you are concerned about possible injury, you need to seek your own personal insurance policy for protection.  By signing your race entry form, you are acknowledging the land owner holding said event, APCS, its officers and board of directors are not liable to property or personal damage/loss

 

  1. PIT RIDING (Everyone needs to read)

 

There will be no pit riding at any track during or after the event.  You are only allowed to ride your quad or pit bike to the starting gate for your moto’s and back to your pit area after the moto’s.  No one under the age of 16 will be allowed to operate golf carts, UTV, SxS, or any other motorized transportation.  This means no pit riding of any kind before, during, or after the race.  Also, no one is allowed to enter on to the track with such vehicles after the race event is over.  If a rider is caught once not obeying these rules they will warned, twice lose all points for that weekend, three times you will be asked to leave the event.

 

  1. Inclement Weather

 

Events may be conducted regardless of weather conditions.  In the event of rain or other unfavorable conditions, it may be necessary to alter the order of the event schedule, including but not limited to, adjusting the length of the race or delaying or stopping the program completely.  Should a delay occur, every effort will be made to resume the schedule in a timely fashion if conditions significantly improve during the course of the day.  If a race must be canceled for the weekend, we will announce the rescheduled date on the APCS website and Facebook page as soon as possible.
