Section A2:
Penalties for Drivers

A2.1     Any driver who deliberately causes damage to another driver’s car through intentional contact will be DISQUALIFIED from the remainder of that feature. Infraction will be reviewed by RACECONTROL, and judgment is final and un-appealable. Drivers DISQUALIFIED for intentional contact will will receive +200 Penalty Mandatory Minimum Practice laps. ( See Section D6 )


A2.1.1     Drivers who cause damage to another car after the checkered flag through intentional, or severe negligence will be penalized with one strike in the next Feature event and +100 Penalty Mandatory Minimum Practice laps. 

( See Section D6 )


A2.2     Any driver who deliberately causes damage to another driver’s car through intentional contact will be ineligible for competition for a minimum of 1 event. Appeals must be received by XCAL within 48 hours from the end of that week's feature event. Appeals must be emailed to President@xcalracing.com with subject line "Penalty Appeal" and be received no later than 48 hours after notification of penalty being posted.


A2.3     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.


A2.3.1      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.


A2.3.2      The first strike incurred by a driver for an infraction outlined in rule A2.3.1 is penalized with a EOL. For this infraction +100 Penalty Mandatory Minimum Practice laps. ( See Section D6 )


A2.3.3     The second strike incurred by a driver for an infraction outlined in rule A2.3.1 is penalized with disqualification and +200 Penalty Mandatory Minimum Practice laps. ( See Section D6 )


A2.3.3.1     If a driver is attempting to serve an XCAL issued black flag for another violation, 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. 


A2.3.3.2     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.


A2.4     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.


A2.5     During 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 S3.3.3.1 )


A2.5.A     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. It is important that at least one driver mic up at two to green to inform RACECONTROL that we are in fact two to green. If no driver mics up before the pace truck reaches the back stretch the entire field will be subjected to +100 Penalty Mandatory Minimum Practice laps. ( See Section D6 )


A2.5.1     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.


A2.5.2     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.


A2.5.3     Drivers who ask for a meatball black flag to be cleared, will be notified that RACECONTROL does not clear iRacing issued black flags.


A2.6     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 A2.1A2.2, A2.5.1 and A2.8 apply to every XCAL Driver competing in ANY hosted session, league race, and official iRacing session.


A2.6.1     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.


A2.6.2     XCAL rule A2.6 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.


A2.6.3     XCAL Drivers found committing rule infractions outlined in A2.6 will serve the applicable penalties in the next FEATURE event held in the 2023 XCAL Racing Web Shop Series, or Dash Series, or BOTH Street Stock Series. This can include event disqualification(s), or PMMP.

A2.8     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. Drivers disqualified for this infraction will receive +200 Penalty Mandatory Minimum Practice laps. ( See Section D6 )


A2.8.1     The displayed number on the car MUST BE VISIBLE, 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.


A2.9     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 may have their chat muted in current and future events, be skipped on future interviews and may incur fines.


A2.9.1     Do not 'thank' fake sponsors. There are plenty of people that make this happen for real. 


A2.10     “Junk to the line” 2023 XCAL Racing Dash Series 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.


A2.10.1     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.  PMMP may be issued to a driver causing an incident in the final 5 laps. ( See Section D6 )


A2.10.2     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 2 positions due to the incident, no penalty or strike shall be issued.


A2.10.3     If RACECONTROL can not determine the cause of an incident in the final 5 laps, ( 'racing deal'  ) no penalty will be issued to any driver.


A2.10.4     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 A2.10.1


A2.11     For penalties involving Penalty Mandatory Minimum Practice see

Section D6.


A2.12     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.


A2.13     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 A3: General Rules

A3.1     Warm up is 7 PM to 7:25 PM. This is not the time to be screwing around. If 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 be as professional as possible.

A3.1.1    The 2023 XCAL Racing Dash Series uses a single car qualifying format with the highest scrutiny available from iRacing. This session will last 5 minutes.


A3.2     Grid is at 7:30 PM. RACECONTROL may take a moment to yell a few procedures at the field at this time. Drivers have 2 minute to grid for features.


A3.3     We will NOT issue EOL Penalties at the start of 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.


A3.4     Initial Start and all restarts are on the leader with the exception of 'plate races'.


A3.4.1     Initial Start and all restarts in 'plate races' are on the flagman.


A3.4.2     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.


A3.5     Once the pace car is off the track, leader must maintain pace speed within 4 mph of the pace car speed. Dropping / accelerating / adjusting speed in any manner 5 mph or more before restarting will result in a black flag.


A3.5.1     Outside line cars on ovals may accelerate slightly more to maintain the correct formation, but may not pass the leader until the green flag waves.

A3.6    Due to random scoring issues there will be NO lane selection for the 2023 XCAL Racing Dash Series season, on any track. In situations where the entire field is restarting single file, ALL cars should travel in the outside lane when crossing the line to go back to green.


A3.7      The pace car must have all four tires off the racing surface before the leader starts or restarts the race.


A3.7.1     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.


A3.8     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.


A3.9     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.


A3.10     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.


A3.10.1     A driver found to be in violation of rule A3.10 may be warned, or black flagged depending on the advantage gained determined by RACECONTROL.


A3.11     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.


A3.12     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.


A3.13     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”.


A3.14     If the leaders are lapping you on ovals, do not make evasive maneuvers.


A3.15      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.


A3.16     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.


A3.16.1     If a car is stopped or deemed to be out of control on the racing surface with approaching traffic, a caution may be thrown.


A3.16.2     If a car is out of the racing groove with a fair amount of space to get corrected, no caution will be displayed.


A3.16.3     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.


A3.16.4     If a car is blocking pit road entrance or exit, the caution WILL NOT BE THROWN. 


A3.17     Incidents that bring out a caution will be reviewed by RACECONTROL.

( See Section D2 )


A3.18     While pacing, drivers must leave the outermost lane of the race track open for cars that need to pass. Incidents that ensue will be the fault of the pacing car, not the passing car, and will result in a black flag.


A3.19     Drivers should remain single file until RACECONTROL announces “one to green”.


A3.20     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.


A3.20.1     The only exception to rules A3.18 and A3.20 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.


A3.21     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.


A3.22     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.


A3.23     There will be NO wave arounds during cautions in feature events. EOL penalties will be issued on the initial 'two to green' and any disqualification penalties will be issued immediately.  


A3.24     Once the leader hits 5 laps to go, XCAL will not throw any more cautions. All incidents will be reviewed. ( See Section D2.10 )


A3.25     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.


A3.25.1     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.


A3.26     Event end. 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.


A3.26.1     Drivers who did not finish in the top 3 must SAFELY return their cars to their pit stall. Do not just smash your car into something or someone after the event, or stop and exit on track. Drivers who ruin a live broadcasts by looking like idiots will receive additional discipline up to and including disqualification from future events and fines.


A3.27     Drivers finishing in the top 3 will be interviewed if live broadcasts. You must be in the XCAL Racing discord to be eligible for interview.


A3.28     If you finish in the top 3, please mind all other cars completing their cool down lap, or heading or finishing the event before doing any burn outs or celebrations.


A3.30     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. This is generally only penalizable if an accident ensues.


A3.31    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!

A3.32    The 2023 XCAL Racing Dash Series has no fuel cap at any event. 

A3.33    Incident points are not charged in the 2023 XCAL Racing Dash Series.

A3.34    Weekly event lengths may vary, but will usually be the same length as the Web Shop Series Heat races.

A3.35    The 2023 XCAL Racing Dash Series does NOT keep track of points. Instead the Season Champion is determined by who wins the most money over the course of the 34 race season! 

 
 
 
 

Section A4: Weather

A4.1      XCAL Weather will be applied for 2023 Dash Series Events!


A4.2     XCAL racing will attempt to simulate the actual weather occurring at the real world location of the current track we are racing at each week.


A4.2.1     Due to iRacing limitations we may not be able to simulate temperatures and other variables outside the range of those provided by the service. In these situations we will set the available settings as close to correct as possible. 


A4.3     The source of this information will be www.weather.com.


A4.3.1     XCAL will set the weather for the Feature based off the predicted weather at the times of the heat races as of 6 A.M. U.S. Eastern the Sunday before the event.


A4.3.2     XCAL will use dynamic sky and weather variability will be set as:

“Initial” = 0% “Then”=25%.


A4.4     “Time of Day” will be set as close as possible to the actual start time of the session in the U.S. Eastern time zone on all tracks with lights. For tracks without proper lighting XCAL will use the 'Time of Day” closest to the actual time that allows enough virtual daylight to finish the event.


A4.5     Actual iRain. It is a possibility that iRacing will add iRain to its service in the near future. Currently, the plan is to continue events uninterpreted if iRain should occur. We run a tread tire and XCAL will provide rain tires if possible and applicable.


A4.6     Weather in official XCAL practices will be set with a variety of conditions and may not actually represent the actual weather at the time of the practice, and may not reflect the actual weather occurring for Heats and Feature Events.

Section A6: Contingency Plans

A6.1     In the event 1/4 or more of the field completely drops from the server at the same time (within 2-3 laps), the caution will be displayed for "iAbductions".


A6.1.1     When the leaders take the "one to green" command, RACECONTROL will announce that the event has been RED FLAGGED for "iAbductions" and the leader is to bring the field to a slow and safe stop at the end of the back straight.


A6.1.2     75% of affected drivers must reconnect to the event before the event can be restarted.


A6.1.3     Drivers will NOT receive wave arounds during cautions for "iAbductions".


A6.1.4     Drivers disconnected will NOT receive wave arounds for laps lost during "iAbductions".


A6.1.5     If after 15 minutes  75% of the "iAbducted" drivers have not been returned, the event will halted for the remainder of the night.


A6.1.6     If 50% or greater of the official laps have been completed at the time of the RED flag, after 15 minutes the event is considered official.


A6.1.7     If less than 50% of the official laps have been completed, the event is a 'iblackout', and the field will be re-grid with the same starting order, and the event re-run on the first available off week. Any laps led, or other points, prizes, or compensation from the event purse will be null and void. We will do a complete reset and act as if the event never started. There are NO refunds in this situation, and NO new competitors will be allowed to enter the event on its make up date, including sub drivers.

Section A7: Other Bullshit

A7.1     No matter how comprehensive the rule books are, situations will arise outside the scope of the written rules. In these situations XCAL Racing will make its best effort to uphold fairness. 


A7.2     Lack of a specific written rule does not inhibit XCAL Racing from issuing any penalty to a driver, or staff.
