Effective Date December 6, 2016
UNSPORTSMAN-LIKE CONDUCT:
While Oshkosh Speedzone understands that auto racing is a highly emotional sport, we understand that good
sportsmanship is the cornerstone of any race program. This must include respect for all participants, Oshkosh
Speedzone Officials, track ownership & staff, push truck & wrecker crews, fans, and sponsors. While we understand the
emotion, Oshkosh Speedzone will not tolerate public displays of poor sportsmanship, stopping your race car on the track
to dispute a call or scoring placement, fighting, harassment, or verbal abuse. Threatening or obscene gestures and/or
language aimed at an official or competitor, rough driving, fighting, pushing or assaulting an official, or destroying
Oshkosh Speedzone property can result in disqualification, forfeiture of money, banishment from premises, probation,
and/or suspension. In case of suspension, if a number of race dates are handed out, rain-outs do not count. If money has
been paid prior to an infraction of any kind and a penalty assessed, the money MUST BE returned to Oshkosh Speedzone
prior to any further competition with the Oshkosh Speedzone. Drivers are responsible for the actions of their crews and
owners. Entering another racer’s pit stall in an aggressive manner is already a fault and in situations where problems
escalate because of it will have that taken into consideration, thus stay out of other competitor’s pit stalls. It should be
noted that team members whose car is not on the scales, or in the work area…. HAVE NO BUSINESS BEING IN THOSE
AREAS! In closing, sportsmanship does not just pertain to activities at the track. Remember what you say, type, or put on
social media has meaning and what you do has consequences, such as having your Oshkosh Speedzone member(ship) in
good standing revoked, so please think before you lash out.
• No alcohol, or illegal drugs may be consumed by a driver before or during an event. We reserve the right to have the
track medical staff determine if a driver, who we may suspect of doing either, be fit for competition.
• Parents are responsible for their minor children’s actions and safety whom they sign a release for to gain entry to the
pit area. The pit area is considered a restricted area.
• Drivers must remain with their car, until instructed otherwise by Oshkosh Speedzone officials or safety crew during
any red or yellow they are involved in.
