Oval Racing Rules

 

Racing to resume at our new facility in Binghamton NY- stay tuned for updates to rules and anticipated opening date for each track as they are built!

 

Racing at Small Addictions RC is separated for competition by both car type and skill level, and the following are the current rules for each of the different classes that we offer. 

Racers have the opportunity to advance to more experienced classes as they improve and gain more skill during the race season. Advancement is at the discretion of the race director based on performance and our scoring system. Once a racer is moved up to a more advanced class, the racer cannot step back down into a lower level class such as Novice, for example. 

Please note that, due to attendance or special events, we may not offer all classes on the same race days. 

 

 Please note rules subject to change for new track in Binghamton, stay tuned for updates!!
