Any rider riding his machine before registering for the race and/or after your race is over may be disqualified or the bike/quad will be parked at the sign up trailer until the rider is preparing to leave.
Riders are responsible for the actions of their entire pit crew. Any unnecessary trouble caused by these individuals puts their rider at risk of disqualification or being asked to leave the premises.

Classes
We don't force any racer in A class to move up to PRO CLASS the following year. We do suggest the top 2 racers in previous classes, C and B, need to move up a class from where they raced in previous season. If you feel you should not move up or have a concern please contact us at 330-365-9022 or by message on facebook.
A rider may protest to move to a lower class if not he/she feels they are not capable of competing in the higher class. No rider will be able to move after having raced four races already in a particular class. Each case will be considered individually at a meeting with the organization. We also have the final say in moving a rider up a class if found to be advanced for a class.
The rider must be large enough and mature enough to control his/her machine at all times and ride it safely. This includes stopping, starting, standing still, mounting and dismounting. The referee has the authority to disqualify a rider that cannot safely control his/her motorcycle or quad.
If any one that runs C class finishes in the top 20 overall, when there is at least 100 adult entries you MUST MOVE UP a class at the next race you participate in and you will lose all points PERIOD. UNLESS YOUR A YOUTH THAT MOVED UP TO ADULT. We will not tolerate sand baggers in the C classes. So if you think you may even have a chance to top 20 overall we strongly suggest you don't race in C class!! EROC has final say on all outcome of the situation.

Riders may get mechanical assistance from their pit crews or spectators while on the course, but must finish the race on the SAME BIKE started on and under the machine’s own power or the physical energy of the RIDER HIM/HERSELF. If towed in through scoring, that lap WILL NOT COUNT.
The machine a rider brings to the starting line is considered their race machine for the event. If any rider is found to be switching machines, their results will be excluded from the race.
All ATV’s must be equipped with a functional tether type mechanical kill device attached to the vehicle and to the rider so that the engine ignition is cut off at any time a rider becomes dismounted from the ATV.

If a rider leaves the track for any reason, the rider must re-enter from the exact location they exited.
The marked course is within 20 feet of all arrows. Anytime double arrows are posted on both sides of the track, riders MUST stay between these arrows. Whenever there are added markers to the trail (ribbon, banners, stakes, hay barrels), rider must stay between these as well. If a rider deviates greater than 20 feet from trail, penalty will be assessed.
If a motocross track is involved in the course, it is required that each rider go over each jump as well as stay on the track, going around all marked turns or a penalty will be assessed.
Any rider encountering a “bottle neck” or “traffic jam” due to track difficulties may deviate from track greater than 20 feet, but must re-enter the course as soon as possible. Upon approaching this section on next lap, rider must follow original trail. Short cutting in these areas will result in a penalty. A “bottle neck” is only defined as a section of the course that becomes impassable due to riders being stuck on difficult terrain.
An official may use his discretion during the race to change any bottleneck from its original track lay-out. Please be alert of this and pay attention when coming upon this particular track location on your following lap.
Marking, cutting, or changing the designated course from its original appearance will be cause for a penalty. Loss of position, loss of lap, or disqualification. Any rider that rides any portion of the track before the start of the race will be assessed a penalty.

Scoring
Have your transponder mounted under your visor. Remove all other transponders so the wrong one isn’t scanned, causing you to not be scored for the race or causing our scoring system error.
Hold your head in the forward direction to allow the scoring system to work quickly.
Enter the “scoring loop” in an orderly, single line fashion. Trying to race through scoring will not get you ahead any faster and may cause for you to not be scored on any particular lap. ANY RACER COMING INTO SCORING FAST MAY BE PENALIZED BY SCORING OFFICAL. IF YOU THINK YOU MAY OF CAME IN TO HOT, YOU PROBALLY HAVE!!
Do not yell at the scoring officals, or hold your bike/quad revved up. This does not get you out any faster. When leaving the scoring area, do not roost the workers intentionally. Leave in an orderly manner. You got miles of track to hold it open!!
The scoring tent is not a pit stop. Do not stop within the track of the other racers. Pull off the track completely. Do not have pit crews throw water, hold goggles or pit boards out in this area. This is a NO PIT CREW area.
If you hit a scoring official, you will be penalized period! No questions!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If a rider is towed in, the lap does not count.
No passing after the checkered flag to the scanner. The scanner will score in the order that you crossed the finish line (checkered flag) ONLY.
Once the checkered flag goes out, riders are given a reasonable amount of time to complete their final lap. The amount of time does vary depending on the length of the course. This time will be a minimum of thirty minutes from the time the checkered flag is thrown.
A rider may get assistance on the track from their Pit Crew or spectators, but must cross the finish line under the bike’s own power or by the rider physically alone.
If a rider is towed in from the track, that lap will not count. If the rider is able to get the machine back started during the race, the rider must re-enter the track at the scoring tent.
If in the referee’s opinion, it is necessary to stop an event after 50 percent of the total time has been covered, the race may be considered completed. Riders will be scored according to their position on the lap preceding the one before the red flag.

Protest and Appeals
Once results are posted at registration, there is a twenty minute protest period. If there are any problems seen with results, this is the only time that problems will be corrected prior to handing out plaques. Once plaques are handed out, if any changes are then made to the results, plaques will not be re-collected to be handed out to the proper persons.
All protest, whether of machine, or rule violations, need to be clearly stated in writing and must be accompanied by a cash protest fee for each matter on which protest is made. All protest must be filled with the referee within thirty minutes of the results being posted by the rider. Protest fees are $25.00 unless the protest requires a machine tear down. A machine tear down protest fee shall be $250.00. $150.00 to the rider if he/she is not found in violation and $100.00 to the promoter for doing the tear down.
