New drivers that do not request a number will be assigned an 800 number until they request a number.
 
Provisional - Drop Race - Sub Driver
You will not get any Provisional this season.
 
You will get 1 drop race per season but can not drop the last race of the season.This means you can throw away your worst finish of the season or if you missed a race it will throw that week away.
 
We do not allow any substitute drivers in this league.

This type of driving will not be tolerated here @ TRUE GRIT Motorsports.The penalty for rough and overaggressive driving will be determined by the TRUE GRIT Admins on the severity of the offense.
 
Retaliation
This will get you penalized every time so don't do it.
 
Wrecking the Leader
At no time will anyone ever win a race here by intentionally wrecking the leader.
 
Lap Down Drivers
Lap down drivers are to yield to the lead lap drivers ASAP and NOT race them once they have been passed.

If a lap down driver gets caught blocking a lead lap driver they will be black flagged or given a post race penalty.
 
If a lap down driver takes out a top 5 driver because they were racing them they will be scored last and be put on Probation. If this happen a 2nd time in a season you will be parked for a race.
