Please read the following:
All minors under 18 must have their legal parents fill out and sign a Minor release/Parental consent form or they will not be allowed to race or even enter the pit area! Absolutely no other adults besides parents can sign a Minor release form for a child under 18. Do not bring your child’s friend without their parents, they will not be allowed in the pit area. (If a parent cannot come to Thunder Hill Speedway to fill out the Minor Release, a copy can be taken and brought back completed, but it has to be Notarized.) This will be strictly enforced! If any person appears under 18 an ID may be requested. All Minor release forms will be filled out completely (front & back) before any child enters the pit area. The minors must also sign only the Minor Report page. No Minors will be allowed to sign the Adult Insurance Waiver! Anyone caught in the pit area without a wristband and having signed the proper insurance forms will be escorted out and barred from returning to Thunder Hill Speedway!
All proper safety equipment must be worn every time a kart or quad enters the race track!
KARTS: Must have approved helmet of Snell 2005 or newer! Helmets must be available for pre-race inspection! Face Shields are Mandatory.

The above guidelines will be followed with no exceptions, if you come unprepared you will not be allowed to race!!!
Arrive at track. Pay admission and sign proper insurance papers. Ask about correct pit parking spots. Go to tech shed and register kart/quad and driver in correct class. Draw number and you will be registered to race. May use scale to check competition weight of your kart. May need to go through safety inspection. Hot laps will begin at approximately 5:40pm. Race Order of classes will be on board by track entrance. Hot laps will be ran same as race order. Each class will be given approx. 3-5 hot laps. Drivers meeting will be at line up board by concession stand after hotlaps. All drivers and parents must attend drivers meeting. Racing will begin at 6:30 pm. Check the line up board and make sure you know where you start for each of your races. All racers must be lined up in the hot grid area at the track entrance, when you are next up to race. Be prepared or you may miss your race! When your class enters the track you may be asked to stop by the flagman to line up if you are not already. When in the correct order, you will then take 1-2 pace laps. The flagman will shut off the yellow light on the back stretch during your rolling pace lap, this indicates you will receive the green flag to start the race coming out of turn 4 if everyone is in order. Stay in line and do not start racing until the green flag/light is displayed. When the green is given you may pass before the flagstand, but not before or you will be charged with jumping the start and penalized. The flags used will be as follows:
green flag - GO! Begin racing.
yellow flag - This means there has been an accident or other reason to interrupt the race. When the yellow flag/light comes, slow down and hold your position, look ahead for accident! You may be asked to slow or stop on the front stretch to be lined up in the correct order.
red flag - This means something major has happened (usually accident) and you should stop as soon as you are in a safe position to do so! Look ahead for accident! You will be re-lined up to resume race.
white flag - This means there is one lap left in the race.
checkered flag - This is the end of the race. Always go past the checkered flag and take one more cool down lap before exiting track.
black flag - This may be rolled up and pointed at you if you are driving dirty, this is a warning to clean up your driving. If this flag is waived at you, this means you are disqualified from the event, you should exit the track safely as soon as you can.
blue w/yellow stripe flag - This is the move over flag and means you are going to be passed by the leader of the race and possibly other faster karts. when you see this you should maintain your line on the track and let the faster karts pass. Do not race these faster karts.
In addition to the flags we also have green, yellow and red lights. Always be looking ahead and pay attention to the flags, lights and your competitors. Respect your fellow competitors and give them room to race. Anyone driving reckless or intentionally blocking, drifting or cutting off a competitor may be black flagged! If you spin out on the track, you need to safely get going again, because the yellow flag will not come out unless absolutely necessary. If the yellow does come out for you, you will go to the back of the pack!
Parents please go over this info with new drivers. This will benefit them and everyone else!
