OBJECTIVE OF RACE
of the race is to finish the race with
your trailer attached while separating the
trailers of your competitors from their
tow vehicle. If you lose your trailer, you
will be black flagged and you must leave
the track. You will be scored accordingly.
If you fail to leave the track after the
loss of your trailer you will be
disqualified - black-flagged & forfeit any
purse or awards. You must retain the axle
of your trailer to remain in a race. If
you lose your trailer axle, you must leave
the race. No trailer tongues only will be
allowed to remain in a race. A part of the
boat/camper or trailer frame must still be
attached to win. If you purposely hit
another tow vehicle with your vehicle in
the X you will be disqualified
immediately. Length of race is 12 laps
unless only one trailer/tow vehicle combo
remains intact. In that event, they will
be declared the winner.
