Should this occur, the Track Manager shall make every effort to resume the schedule in a timely fashion if conditions improve. It is their sole discretion as to what decision they make and their decision is final.

Rain Check Policy (Pits): Cancellation or delay of an event will be the speedway management's decision. No money will be refunded for tickets or pit passes purchased. The armband with the appropriate numbers shall be used as the rain check. In the event that an event is cancelled, rain checks will only be honored if all the qualifying races for all divisions have not been completed. All races completed will be scratched and will not be rescheduled (EIRI - special events). Rain checks for the pits will be honored for one of the next two events of equal or lesser value. If the rain check is used for an event of greater value, then the holder will be responsible for making up the difference in value.

If the event is rained out or cancelled after one feature race for any division has been completed, then the remaining feature events will be run at a later announced date. This date will probably be the next race event scheduled and the make-up features will be first on the program (before any qualifying heats scheduled for the regular event). Only cars qualified for the cancelled event will be eligible for the make-up feature. Rain checks will not be issued for events when the make-up features are held.

Feature Event Completion - One lap past the halfway point in a feature shall constitute a complete race in the event a race is stopped due to bad weather. If a race is stopped by use of the red flag and is ruled complete (no matter how many laps are complete), the finishing positions will be paid according to the last officially scored lap by the leader prior to the red flag.
