2007 GENERAL RULES

FORWARD


The Official Rules and Race Procedures contained herein are designed
primarily for the benefit of Drivers and Car Owners. They were
compiled, after careful consideration, by a group of
persons who have
many years of experience as Drivers, Car Owners and Promoters of
race events.

It is the intent of the FASCAR Officials to enforce these rules
impartially and consistently so that each individual has an equal
opportunity to compete with al
l other cars in his/her class. No set of
rules were ever written which could not be criticized in some way, or
misinterpreted. It is requested that any individual who feels that a
given rule should be clarified, bring it to the attention of one of the
F
ASCAR Officials for interpretation. In this way, each Driver can
understand the intent of all of the rules before a problem arises. In any
case, interpretation of rules by FASCAR Officials will be considered
final.

We wish for every participant in the sp
ort of racing to find it enjoyable
and rewarding and we will endeavor, with your cooperation, to make it
so.



Sincerely,


FASCAR Officials
