Section D2: Penalties

D2.1     Any driver who deliberately causes damage to another driver’s car through intentional contact will be DISQUALIFIED from the remainder of that heat or feature. Infraction will be reviewed by RACECONTROL, and judgment is final and un-appealable.


D2.1.1     Drivers who cause damage to another car after the checkered flag through intentional, or severe negligence will be penalized with an EOL and one strike in the next Feature event.


D2.2     Any driver who deliberately causes damage to another driver’s car through intentional contact a second time during the same race week as their first infraction will be ineligible for competition for a minimum of 3 events. Appeals must be received by XCAL within 48 hours from the end of that week's feature event.


D2.3     XCAL has adopted a “two strikes - you're out” policy when dealing with on track incidents that draw a caution. All cautions will be reviewed to determine the nature and severity of the incident. XCAL understands the rubbing is racing, and some incidents simply can't be avoided. However, incidents that CAN be avoided or cause unnecessary extensive damage to one or more cars will be penalized.


D2.3.1      Incidents that incur a ONE STRIKE penalty include, but may not be limited to; being the cause of an accident, driving in an absurdly aggressive manner, brake checking (during race or under caution), hitting another car under caution, not paying attention to the cars around you (drifting into another drivers lane), or self-spins.


D2.3.2      The first strike incurred by a driver for an infraction outlined in rule D2.3.1 is penalized with an EOL on the next restart during Heats, and a black flag during Features.


D2.3.3     The second strike incurred by a driver for an infraction outlined in rule D2.3.1 is penalized with disqualification.


D2.3.3.1     If a driver is attempting to serve an XCAL issued black flag, and another caution comes out (Not caused by the driver serving the black), the black flag will be cleared and the driver will instead receive an E.O.L. Penalty on the next restart. Drivers must notify RACECONTROL if this happens to them, as the event staff will be busy attending to the current yellow.


D2.3.3.2     ANY RULE INFRACTION COMMITTED AFTER A DRIVER IS DISQUALIFIED WILL RESULT IN THE DRIVER BEING REMOVED FROM THE SERVER, AND WILL LIKELY RESULT IN FUTURE DISQUALIFICATION FROM EVENTS AND OTHER PENALTIES AND / OR FINES TO BE DETERMINED BY THE OWNER OF XCAL RACING.


D2.4     Incidents that can draw a caution but DO NOT incur a ONE STRIKE penalty include, but may not be limited to, causing an accident that does not cause the contacted driver to lose a position, or any incident RACECONTROL can not determine who was at fault. In this situation all drivers involved in the initial incident will receive an EOL on the next restart.


D2.5     During Heat races and Feature events drivers may communicate with each other on a single channel on the radio called “WHALEPETEY”.  Drivers speaking to each other over an open channel other than “WHALEPETEY” will have their chat muted. Drivers with their chat muted may find themselves at a major disadvantage during the event. ( See rule D2.3.3.1 )


D2.5     Drivers may speak on open channels only to reach RACECONTROL. This may include asking for review of an accident that may have been initially missed, or to report other important information.


D2.5.1     Drivers that relay false or misleading information to RACECONTROL will have their chat muted and may incur additional penalties up to and including disqualification. This can include, but is not limited to: reporting pace car location improperly, reporting an accident that did not occur, or the wrong location of a crash, or reporting a car as “blinking” when it is completely visible to RACECONTROL.


D2.5.2     Drivers are not permitted to ask RACECONTROL “why” a call was made, or argue any case during a live event. Violations of this rule will result in chat being muted.


D2.5.3     Drivers who ask for a meatball black flag to be cleared, will be notified that RACECONTROL does not clear iRacing issued black flags.


D2.6     Code of Conduct: The on track behavior of all XCAL drivers dictates the quality of future new members that enter our organization. If we are known as a bunch of “wreckers”, “self spinners” or “hosted session ruin-ers” the iRacing community will remember. XCAL wants its member base to expand, not shrink. A large professionally run event with a high car count attracts more sponsorship opportunity and creates a better product on and off the track. Therefore, all XCAL rules outlined in sections D2.1 – D2.2, D2.5.1 and D2.8 apply to every XCAL Driver competing in ANY hosted session, league race, and official iRacing session.


D2.6.1     XCAL will review any complaint levied against a Driver as long as a replay of the infraction is attached when submitted, and XCAL receives the complaint within 48 hours of the alleged rule infraction.


D2.6.2     XCAL rule D2.6 is null and void when XCAL members participate in league and hosted sessions described as “demolition racing”, “enduro”, “no holds barred”, “boys have at it”, “2 Lap Sprints” or any other format in which contact between cars is allowed and / or encouraged.


D2.6.3     XCAL Drivers found committing rule infractions outlined in D2.6 will serve the applicable penalties in the next FEATURE event held in the XCAL 2022 Street Stock Series. This can include event disqualification(s).


D2.7     Drivers who qualify in a heat with the incorrect car number will receive the last transfer spot in their heat. If a Driver enters a Feature event with the wrong car number, that number will be docked 25 owners points.


D2.7.1     A Driver that enters more than one heat with the wrong car number will be disqualified from every heat they enter until they correct the issue.


D2.8     Drivers are not to have profanity written or visualized on their car, and may not have lewd images or graphic graphics of any sort. XCAL staff will review all paint schemes. Members in violation of this rule MAY receive a warning, and risk automatic disqualification. 


D2.8.1     The displayed number on the car MUST BE VISABLE, and of a contrasting color to the body work it resides on. Violations of this rule will result in escalating penalties up to and including event disqualification.


D2.9     Live broadcast events will feature post race interviews and may include pre-race and mid-race interviews as well. These interviews must be treated with care. Members that use vulgar language will have their chat muted in current and future events, be skipped on future interviews and may incur fines.


D2.9.1     Do not 'thank' fake sponsors. There are plenty of people that make this happen for real. 


D2.10     “Junk to the line” XCAL Heats and Features always finish under green. In the event the caution is displayed any time there is 5 laps to go or less, Drivers should race back to the checkered to determine the finishing order. Results displayed by iRacing will be unofficial until the end of the event is reviewed by the XCAL President.


D2.10.1     All incidents in the last 5 laps will be reviewed by RACECONTROL regardless to if it would have caused a caution or not. Drivers found to have committed a rule infraction will be penalized by placing them last among finishers on the same lap. Additionally, car #'s may be docked owners points if the adversely affected driver lost more than 5 positions. 


D2.10.2     If a driver is found to be at fault for a last lap incident, but the car they immediately and initially affected does not lose more than 5 positions due to the incident, no penalty or strike shall be issued.


D2.10.3     If RACECONTROL can not determine the cause of an incident in the final 5 laps, ( 'racing deal'  ) no penalty will be issued to any car #.


D2.10.4     No driver will be penalized in the last 5 laps for making a valid attempt to dodge a crash, that causes another incident to ensue. If RACECONTROL determines a driver was driving recklessly and not simply avoiding a crash, penalties will be issued as stated in the rules in section 2.10.1


D2.11.5     For penalties involving Mandatory Minimum Practice see Section D6.


D2.12     Drivers who receive a post race penalty arising from a protest may be penalized in the time frame of the current event, or the next Feature, whichever is more appropriate.


D2.13     Drivers that are having issues with connection ( blinking, warping, flashing, etc ) will be given an audio warning, a final warning, and then be issued a black flag if the connection does not stabilize in a timely manner. 

 

Section D3: Money

D3.1     Drivers are not responsible for entry fees, or incident point penalties. It is the Car # Owner's duty to pay all fees and penalties associated with each event.


D3.1.1     Drivers may occur fines in addition to those issued to Car # Owners for extremely egregious actions.


D3.2     All race winnings, points, and Owners Championship winnings are accredited to the Car # Owner. 


D3.2.1     Any agreements made between a Car # Owner and a Driver are not enforceable by XCAL Racing, and it is up to Car # Owners to uphold those agreements completely on their own. 


D3.3    The 2022 All Star Event features cash prizes to be awarded to the Drivers deemed eligible to compete.


D3.3.1    Special events, non-points events, and other series sponsored by XCAL Racing may offer cash prizes to individual drivers.

D5.4     Feature Event Tuesday at 7 PM. Session goes live at 7PM and will have 30 minutes of warm up. Feature events need no passwords as they are manually grid by XCAL Racing.

 

Section D6: Practice Specifics

D6.1     Mandatory Practice: All drivers are required to complete Mandatory Minimum Practice in an official XCAL Racing Practice Session. The exact number of laps required for Mandatory Minimum Practice for each event will be listed in the www.XCALRACING.com website under 'This Week's Events'. ( See Section D5.1 for Official Practice times. )  Rule D6.1 only applies to 'non-plate' events.


D6.1.1     Drivers who do not complete 50% of the lap total as listed in rule 6.1 will be ineligible to participate in the current week's points event and may not attempt to qualify a car #.


D6.1.2     Drivers that do not complete 100% of the lap total as listed in rule 6.1, but complete 50% or greater of this total may attempt to qualify, and may be eligible for provisional entries, however they will grid with an EOL and start the Feature event with one of two strikes.


D6.1.3     Once a driver has completed Mandatory Minimum Practice 5 times, they are eligible for one 'free pass' where they may completely skip practice without penalty. This 'free pass' is automatically redeemed the first time a driver is entered in an event and does not complete 100% of Mandatory Minimum Practice. 'Free passes' can be accumulated and saved throughout the season. A maximum of 5 'free passes' can be earned by any one driver during the 2022 season.


D6.1.3.1     'Free passes' are non transferable, and remain with the driver, not the car #.


D6.2     'Plate Race' Mandatory Minimum Practice: All drivers are required to participate in and complete 80% of the laps in at least 2 of the practice races that will occur at the end of each XCAL Racing official practice OR complete at least one lap in 4 of the different practice races.


D6.2.1     Drivers that do not complete this requirement will be ineligible to participate in the current week's points event and may not attempt to qualify a car #, unless they are using a 'free pass' as described in D6.1.3.


D6.3     Any human hosting a practice labeled as "Official XCAL Practice" without the consent of the XCAL Racing President is subject to penalty ranging from being yelled at, to blacklisting depending on the number of people screwed over.


D6.4     Open practices are open to the public without passwords. This is our opportunity to grow our driver base. All XCAL regulars should welcome potential new additions, direct them to the website, and our broadcasts on YouTube.


D6.5     Sunday's practices will have passwords. The passwords will be only sent to Car # Owners. It is up to those owners to forward those passwords to their drivers, and potential relief drivers, or any potential talent they may be scouting. 

D6.6     Practices will have a variety of weather settings.

 

Section D7 Qualifying Specifics:

D7.1      The first 3 events of 2022 will be grid entirely by heat race finishing position of car #'s, sorted by fastest lap times. Additional ties are scored in favor of the driver in the car # completing the lap time first. Any additional provisional grid spots will be filled with next highest finishing heat race positions per fastest lap time.


D7.2     Heat race grid is based on a 30 minute open qualifying session. 


D7.3     All available pit stalls will be used at all tracks. We may share pit stalls during qualifying if there is an amount of car #'s registered that exceeds the mathematical limitations of how many drivers would be able to attempt to join the sessions. 


D7.4     After the conclusion of the first 3 events the top 15 car #'s in the current owners points are locked into the field each week.


D7.4.1     Drivers in car #'s locked in via points may still attempt to qualify in heat races to achieve a better starting position.


D7.4.2     Car #'s locked in via points that fail to qualify, or do not attempt to qualify in heat races, will grid directly behind all cars that qualified in heat races, sorted by points position.


D7.4.3     If car #'s from the top 15 in points qualify in heat races, additional provisional entries will become available.


D7.4.4     Starting with the 4th event Provisional Entries will be issued according to owners championship points until the grid is filled. These car #'s will grid directly behind drivers in the top 15 who did not qualify in heat races.


D7.5     Drivers who complete mandatory practice, but do not attempt to qualify in the heats MAY be given a Provisional Entry IF there are grid spots available after the conclusion of the last heat.


D7.5.1     “Attempt to qualify in the heats” is defined as completing at least one lap in one of the heat races for that week's feature.


D7.6     Once a Driver had qualified ANY car #, they MAY NOT attempt to qualify again during the event weekend!


D7.7      The amount of top finishing cars taken from heats will vary each week, as different tracks have different pit stall totals.


D7.8     Cars #'s or Drivers taking penalties will grid behind all locked in and provisional entry cars.


D7.8.1     Multiple car #'s or Drivers taking the same penalties will be sorted by owners points.


D7.8.2     Multiple car #'s or Drivers taking different penalties will be sorted by time since penalty was issued, most recent penalty grids last.

 

Section D8: Weekly Race Procedures

D8.1     Warm up is 7 PM to 7:30 PM. This is not the time to be screwing around. Our live broadcasts will beginning during this time and pre-race driver interviews may be taking place. Only get on the track for serious warm up. Do not pile into crashes. If you crash, do your best to get out of the way. Drive cars back to the pits. Do not exit on track unless its the only safe way to get off the track. From this point forward we need our events to look as professional as possible.


8.2     Grid is at 7:30 PM. RACECONTROL may take a moment to yell a few procedures at the field at this time. Drivers have 1 minute to grid for features.


D8.3     We will NOT issue EOL Penalties at the start of heats or features. If you do not want to start from your assigned grid position you may start from the pits. XCAL will not correct any scoring errors caused by iRacing in this situation.


D8.4     Initial Start and all restarts are on the leader with the exception of 'plate races'.


D8.4.1     Initial Start and all restarts in 'plate races' are on the flagman.


D8.4.2     If either of the front row cars attempts to start or restart the race before the flagman in a 'plate race' they will be black flagged.


D8.5     Once the pace car is off the track, leader must maintain pace speed within 4 mph of the pace car speed. Dropping 5 mph or more before restarting will result in a black flag.


D8.5.1     Outside line cars on ovals may accelerate slightly more to maintain the correct formation, but may not pass the leader.


D8.6     There is NO lane choice on starts or restarts! 


D8.7      The pace car must have all four tires off the racing surface before the leader starts or restarts the race.


D8.7.1     In situations the pace car is still on the track and the flagman displays the green, no penalties will be issued to the front row cars, and the race is officially started or restarted.


D8.8     If RACECONTROL verbally calls off a restart, the yellow will be displayed as soon as possible and extended until the field is lined up properly.


D8.9     RACECONTROL may announce a speedway has a designated restart zone. The leader may not accelerate more than 4 mph before hitting the start of the restart zone. Accelerating 5 mph or more before the start of the zone will result in a black flag.


D8.10     No driver may pass another car in their lane, or change lanes before the start finish line. This includes long lines of single file cars.


D8.10.1     A driver found to be in violation of rule 8.10 may be warned, or black flagged depending on the advantage gained determined by RACECONTROL.


D8.11     Drivers may not hang back, and must maintain a ¾ car length distance behind the car in front of them once RACECONTROL announces “one to green” or by the final turn on tracks with one opening pace lap.


D8.12     Drivers who experience a major mechanical malfunction may pull out of line for safety reasons. Missing a shift is NOT a reason to step out of line, or a reason to pass a car. If a lane gets held up by a slow starting car, drivers must maintain their lane until the starting line.


D8.13     Passing Flag will only be displayed at road courses. If you are being shown that flag, maintain the line you have been running. Do not make evasive maneuvers. The over taking cars are much faster and will find a way around without your “help”.


D8.14     If the leaders are lapping you on ovals, do not make evasive maneuvers.


D8.15      Drivers on the tail end of the lead lap, and 1 lap down may race the lead lap cars to attempt to get laps back. Once a car is 2 laps down or more they are expected to yield to lead lap cars in the top 10.


D8.16     Cautions will be thrown by RACECONTROL only. These may be for an accident, or a predetermined and announced competition caution, or to try to correct a scoring error.


D8.16.1     If a car is stopped or deemed to be out of control on the racing surface with approaching traffic, a caution will be thrown.


D8.16.2     If a car is out of the racing groove with a fair amount of space to get corrected, no caution will be displayed.


D8.16.3     If RACECONTROL determines a driver did not make an effort to move their car from the racing line in a timely manner, that car may be penalized even if it was the victim of the initial incident.


D8.16.4     If a car is blocking pit road entrance or exit, the caution may be displayed at the discretion of RACECONTROL.


D8.17     Incidents that bring out a caution will be reviewed by RACECONTROL. ( See Section D2 )


D8.18     While pacing, drivers must leave the outermost lane of the race track open for wave around cars. Incidents that ensue will be the fault of the pacing car, not the wave around car, and will result in a black flag.


D8.19     Drivers should remain single file until RACECONTROL announces “one to green”.


D8.20     When lining up, pass cars on the outside ALWAYS. If you need to let someone by, stay LOW. If you pass on the inside and someone decides to pit, causing car contact, you will be black flagged.


D8.20.1     The only exception to rules 8.18 and 8.20 are on race tracks where the pit road is on the outside of the speedway. At those tracks we do the exact opposite of those rules in terms of leaving lanes open and passing to line up.


D8.21     There are no wave arounds in heat races. All penalties issued by RACECONTROL for incidents that brought out a yellow shall occur no sooner than two laps before the scheduled restart.


D8.22     We will allow iRacing to release cars trapped behind the pace car at one to green. If iRacing refuses to release those cars, too bad. Always obey what the display is telling you.


D8.23     There will be 3 wave arounds during cautions in feature events. Black flags for penalties will be issued immediately and any EOL penalties will be issued with two laps before the green.


D8.23.1     Drivers eligible for the XCAL Wave around will be the first 3 in standings 1 lap down or more when we are 2 laps to green. NOT at the time of the caution.


D8.24     Once the leader hits 5 laps to go, XCAL will not throw any more cautions. All incidents will be reviewed. ( See Section D2.10 )


D8.25     When the caution is displayed and drivers have made it all the way to the pit entrance, and the pace car has still not caught the field, it is permissible for the leader to STOP the field.


D8.25.1     If the leader needs to STOP the pacing field they must announce their intent to do so to RACECONTROL. Give a fair amount of warning. Other drivers may relay information about where the pace car currently is.


D8.26     Event end. Once drivers take the checkered flag they should do one additional lap around the speedway to lock in their incident points. Incident points iRacing scores after the checkered flag still count. Drivers in the top 3 should stop their cars on front straight AFTER completing the cool down lap, with leader in victory lane where applicable.


D8.26.1     Drivers who did not finish in the top 3 have two choices. They may SAFELY return their cars to their pit stall or meet in the per-designated post race demo derby area. Do not just smash your car into something or someone after the event, or stop and exit on track. Drivers who ruin our live broadcasts by looking like idiots will receive progressive discipline up to and including disqualification from future events.


D8.27     Drivers finishing in the top 3 will be interviewed for our live broadcasts. You must be in the XCAL Racing discord to be eligible for interview.


D8.28     If you finish in the top 3, please mind all other cars completing their cool down lap, or heading to the demo derby area before doing any burn outs or celebrations.


D8.29     Post race demo derby. Time to get revenge. Drivers wishing to compete in the demo derby need to meet in the pre-determined demo derby area after completing their cool down lap.


D8.29.1     We will count down and start the demo derby after the 3 podium cars complete interviews. Those drivers may enter to the demo area after their interview if they want to compete.


D8.29.2      Demo Derbies may feature additional prizes, so drivers found trying to “start it early” may get removed from the demo.


D8.29.3     Drivers must stay in the demo area during the derby, and may not go for “arena shots” from outside the demo area. Violators will be removed from the demo.


D8.29.4     Drivers who get “turtled” may ask for help.


D8.29.5     Drivers must exit the car if the motor pops.


D8.29.6     The last car still moving under its own power is the winner.


D8.29.7     Drivers “playing opossum” will be yelled at and counted down from 5. If you do not move and hit a car before 0, you will be removed from the demo.


D8.30     XCAL has a one car per lane policy. When making a pass, you must not be in the same lane as the car you are trying to pass. Additionally, in situations where the rules state you can not pass below a specific line, you can not attempt a pass on the inside when the lead car is occupying the bottom lane. 


D8.31    Post race argument. After the race jump in the discord to bitch, moan, complain, and swear you'll never run another event if THIS or THAT doesn't change. See you next week!

 

Section D9: Car Setups

D9.1     All oval events on tracks less than 1.5 miles, and both road events are open setup. There are currently no limitations to what you can do with your car as long as it passes iRacing tech inspection.
