RULE BOOK DISCLAMER

The Canadian Mud Racer’s Organization (CMRO) has no express implied warranty of safety resulting from publication of, or complaint with these rules. They are intended as a guideline for conduct of the sport and are in no way a guarantee against injury or death to spectators or participants.

Participants are expected to be alert to inherent hazards of Mud Racing competition and are expected to exercise good safety precautions and procedures.

SAFETY'S IMPORTANCE

The primary responsibility for the safe conduction and operation of a racer in competition rests with vehicle owner and driver. The promoter assumes major responsibility for the operation of a safe race event. The total responsibility for racing's progress must be shared by everyone associated with the sport. Close observance of the standards set forth in this rulebook is an important fundamental. The standards set forth by the CMRO will serve as guidelines based upon experience and professional mud racing. The CMRO also serves as coordinator and facilitator between the professional racers, the pit or facilities manager, and the promoter.

SANCTIONING EVENTS

The following procedures will be used when designating sanctioning approval status of racing events:

1. Promoters MUST book their sanctioned event ninety (90) days prior their event date. A sanctioning fee of $1000.00 must be paid by this time to the Organization together with an executed Event Agreement, which will be filed with the CMRO. The fee is non- refundable unless an event must be cancelled, in which case thirty (30) days written notice must be given to the President of the Organization. A meeting of the executive will then be called to discuss the Promoter's reason(s) for cancellation. Should "just cause" be found, the fee will then be returned. Any Promoter that has held a sanctioned event the year before has priority to the same weekend date of the current year (with the 90 day prior clauses)

2. First time Promoters must have a CMRO member assisting the event before the event will be sanctioned. A member of the executive will ensure one (1) week prior to event date that all safety features will be enforced and mud pits meet CMRO approved requirements.

3. At a CMRO sanctioned / approved race event, the CMRO will implement the Organization's rules and monitor compliance at the event.

4. All sanctioned events must use CMRO's Time Light system.

5. Promoters must supply QUALIFIED first Aid services at all CMRO sanctioned events. The First Aid vehicle must have access to move in and out at all times and must be visible to the event officials, the CMRO and the public at all times. Races will not start until the First Aid vehicle is on site.

6. Promoters MUST supply a minimum of 15,000 gallons of water per day during the event and up to one (1) hour after the event of the first day and two (2) hours after the event on the second day. CMRO will supply the wash pump and wash hoses.

7. Promoters must provide toilet facilities.

8. Promoters are urged to provide dirt ramps for semis to load and unload competitor's vehicles.

9. Promoters may have one (1) day sanctioned event, but the rules apply as for a two (2) day event and prizes are paid in the same manner and amount.

10. A sanctioned event must include the following classes. No exceptions

Open Class - Diesel Class - Street Stock – Mod Stock – Pro Stock - Super Stock - Pro Modified - Super Modified

Note: - Diesel Class, Super Stock-Pro Modified & Super Modified will race in the pro pits

Open Class, Street Stock-Mod Stock & Pro Stock will race in mud at all venues

11. Class order will be determined pending on venue, the promoter’s discretion and as the Safety Committee sees fit.

*“Local classes” will be at the promoter's discretion. It will be left to the Promoter to arrange, register, and monitor the “Local Class” competitors. CMRO will only keep track of the competitor's race number and time.

12. Promoters will receive a Promoter's Package in advance of their event or they can print one from the CMRO website (cmro.net). The package will contain all paper needed, including rules. All papers (used and unused) are to be returned to the CMRO President completed and duly executed.

13. CMRO supplies all sanctioned events with the following.

Stagers, Fire Extinguishers, Flag men, Liability Forms, Measurers, Wash hose and manifold, Event Van, Wash pumps, Time System. Tow Cables, Stop Watches, Technical Inspectors & Forms, Timers, Registration Forms, Time Sheets, & Personnel.

14. Promoters are encouraged to send a copy of their posters to the CMRO secretary in advance of the event. CMRO secretary will send this out to other racers we know of outside our circuit. Your event will also be advertised on our website. Posters should contain the following information and be sent in a PDF or JPEG format:

Where, When, and Time of the event
Entry Deadline, Admission and Entry Fees
Specify Classes

17. Promoters are to be aware that CMRO members holding a valid membership pit pass will be allowed into the event at NO CHARGE.

18. Promoters must supply a designated vehicle tech-in area.

PAYOUT SYSTEM

CMRO requires one cheque from the Promoter in the amount of $8500.00 for payout distribution. CMRO will issue cheques for payout of all classes (with exception of Local class, which will be handled by the Promoter.)

2. This designates events which are NOT CMRO approved or sanctioned. The CMRO ASSUMES NO RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY, nor has any interest in designated event.

3. No promoter shall advertise CMRO or use the CMRO logo in any way for a nonsanctioned event.

4. No CMRO supplies will be issued for any non-sanctioned event.

The benefits of having a CMRO sanctioned event would include expectations for increased safety and monitoring; standardized rules for Race competition; and participation by the leading professional drivers for the Promoter's event

In the interest of developing standardization and safer motor sport, the CMRO will make its rules available to any Promoter who wishes to voluntarily use the rules in coordination with his/her event. However, the Organization makes no representations and assumes no responsibility or liability for implementing or monitoring the rules and their enforcement.

RACE RULES

Racer's primary objective is to drive a 4x4 vehicle through a pit of sand or mud as fast and as far as possible and become the overall champion. CMRO afford every Race an equal opportunity at the title. Mud racing competition consists of classes for vehicles used in everyday aspects of the street, to classes that are designed for the professional vehicle that is not driven on the street.

Individuals compete against the clock in attempt to have the fastest time while driving through a sand/mud pit. In order to allow each competitor the fairest start possible.

*NEW to 2015 Season is REACTION TIME in all classes*

Time starts when the light turns green and stops when the vehicle crosses an electronic beam at the finish line. Individuals compete against the clock. Winners in each class are determined by the combined time from both days' runs (using the best 3 of 4). The fastest combined time determines the winner. In the event that the electronic timer fails, a rerun will be awarded. If a complete run is not made, a measurement to the front of the vehicle is used to determine the distance traveled. Winners in each class are determined by combined distance from both days' runs. The farthest combined distance is the winner. Distance and time are kept on all runs. In the event of a tie, the combined distance plus the combined time is used, with the fastest time determining the winner.

Distance and /or time are awarded to the vehicle, not the driver. A vehicle may only compete ONCE in any class.

If a racer is the first to pass through the pit, that pass can be thrown away if the driver has attended the driver’s meeting.

All competing vehicles stage with the staging light and must come to a complete stop before breaking the start beam. Failure to stop will result in an automatic disqualification (DQ) for that pass. Staging time is the time it takes to be at the start line in your running order. Pit officials have the authority to decide on the eligibility of a particular run. Competitors and their vehicles should be prepared to be on time for their run and be in the staging order. Reasonable staging time is at the discretion of pit officials. All vehicles must be pulled forward. Only exception is if a vehicle breaks down within the 1st twenty-five feet, the driver can opt to be DQ'd for the pass and be pulled out backwards.

Staging must be done under the vehicles own power.

Reverse at any time during a run is an AUTOMATIC DQ!! Once you have broken staging beam you can no longer back up.

Any vehicle that comes out of the pit or in contact with any equipment is DQ’d for that run.

If a vehicle starts at the lights before the green light and the red light comes up on the tree, you will be DQ’d.

If a driver or his/her passenger removes their helmet or exits the vehicle in the pit, you will be DQ’d.

Once a vehicle has ceased forward motion and been flagged, it is not permitted to move again.

Vehicles that dig unnecessary holes in the pit are automatically disqualified for that run.

Exhibition Runs - Non-members must be teched and run Saturday at the end of the day with a cost of $25.00 per run. Members can run at the end of their class at no charge on either day. No points or money will be awarded.

Driver's hands must be visible to the flagman during hook-up.

In Non Nitrous classes, Pit officials check to ensure that Nitrous bottles are sealed and tapped off.

Any competitor found to be running illegal will forfeit all points acquired during current race year and be fined the amount of any race payouts won. Fines must be paid back to CMRO prior to the competitor competing in the next high class for the remainder of the race year, if the vehicle meets the standard of the lower class the next year, the competitor shall be allowed to race in the lower class again.

Violation of any governed rule shall constitute a disqualification.

Any contestant who feels that another contestant's vehicle is illegal may protest that vehicle. A protest form must be filed with a $400.00 cash deposit. Protests will happen Saturday with tear down being done by Saturday night. This way the competitor will have their points for Saturday and if legal, be ready to race on Sunday. If the vehicle is legal, the deposit will forfeit, and tear down will put back to original condition. If the vehicle is illegal, the protestor will be refunded their deposit and the tear down does not have to be put back together. The illegal vehicle loses points and moneys earned Saturday and all points from previous races.

Any competitor refusing a tear down will automatically be ruled to be running illegal.

Any competitor found to be running illegal will be banned from competition at any CMRO sanctioned event for one calendar year from the date of the infraction.

Head pit officials are the people in charge of the pit personnel, during the event itself, these officials will be people with authority to suspend or disqualify a driver or vehicle from competition. The decision of the official on any point in question will be final. Any protests or complaints must go to the Rules Committee. Pit officials may call upon the CMRO Executive for a decision regarding any protest. If the Rule Committee is called on any point in question, their decision will be final.

THE CANADIAN MUD RACING ORGANIZATION IS DEDICATED TO THE SAFTEY OF EVERYONE INVOLVED IN THE SPORT OF MUD RACING FROM THE COMPETITOR TO THE SPECTATOR.

MEMBERSHIP FEES

A fee of $60.00 will be paid to the CMRO. This membership is good for one full year (fall meeting until next fall meeting).
