All Body Parts Must Be on the car at all times. Any body part not on your car, you will need to add 50 pounds of lead weight in its place. Mounted on the far right side of the car, as close to the door as possible. This includes the trunk or hatch to your car. The part must be attached in its original shape and size or as close to it as possible with damage. (The only exclusions to this rule, will be parts unattachable after a wreck during a race night.)
The car must be in presentable condition at all times. We ask that you take pride in the cars that you are racing. Cover the headlight openings and other holes left by car preparation. Paint the car nicely and come up with a unique look for your car and keep it in as good of condition throughout the season as you can.
Roll cage – Minimum 4-point cage required with three door bars on the driver’s side and 2 on the right side. See roll cage components website for circle track start kit for the style of cage required. If you need help with getting a cage installed call Langley Austin at 276.613.4208 and he will point you to someone who can help.
Safety – Aluminum Race seat and Five-point harness required. Window net must be mounted solid on bottom and latch release on top. Fire extinguisher with metal mounting bracket a must. Helmet, driving suit and gloves are Mandatory.
Anything related to safety is likely allowed within reason, but you must ask before doing it. Forgiveness is harder to come by than permission. Anything not discussed in these rules should be addressed with the tech man prior to doing it, seeking forgiveness isn’t a great plan, so plan ahead.
**ANYTHING NOT COVERED MUST BE STOCK FOR MAKE AND MODEL ACCORDING TO THE CARS VIN NUMBER, WHICH MUST BE REGISTERED WITH THE TRACK PRIOR TO RACING IN THIS DIVISION.**
All cars must run lap times of 17.600 or slower to compete in this division. Any car that runs a lap time faster than 17.600 will be required to add 50 pounds to the right side of the car for each tenth of a second faster you run. Weight must be added as far to the right and centered as possible within the passenger side of the car. You are not allowed to counterweight on the left side.
17.599-17.500 – 50 pounds added
17.499-17.400 – 100 pounds added
17.399-17.300 – 150 pounds added
17.299 and lower – DQ from race event. The car must be evaluated by the tech man to determine what can be done to allow the car to continue to compete going forward or the car will be moved to the Outlaw4 division.
– If you run a lap time faster than 17.600 in practice (unless its the qualifying session for the night), you simply need to add weight.
– If you run a lap time faster than 17.600 in qualifying, you will need to add the weight before the start of the first race of the night and your starting position (if determined by a time faster than 17.600), your time will officially be recorded as a 17.650 and you will be lined up accordingly.
– If you run a lap time faster than 17.600 during the first race of the night (on twin nights), you will be allowed to keep your finishing position but will have to add weight before the second race of the night.
– Sandbagging is NOT ALLOWED. There will be consequences for any driver who sandbags in an effort to steal a win.
Plan to bring weight with you if you think you’re going to be close on speed. Not having weight with you will not keep you from being penalized.
Drivers with Added Weight as of 1/1/23:
This list will be updated as available.
Again…… This division was created to be an affordable, entry-level way to enter stock car racing. Keeping the cars completely stock is the priority and the division will be teched to ensure that. Changes not listed in the rules are not allowed.
1 – Tires and Wheels as well as added penalty weight will be teched weekly. Weight may be removed and weighed by tech at any time.
2 – The inspector may opt to check any other item and will likely pick at least two items per race in addition to the three above to check.
3 – Open tech for the top 3 finishers. Any top 3 finishers can inspect the other top 3 cars with the assistance of the tech man or ask the inspector to check a specific item. One item per week may be selected by a competitor to be checked on all the top three finishers cars. Item must be available for visual inspection to be selected by a competitor.
4 – The race track may inspect any part at any time during an event prior to or after the race.
1 – The first offense of cheating will result in a disqualification and loss of purse and points for the event.
2 – The second offense of cheating will result in a disqualification and loss of purse and points from the event and a subsequent suspension from the next Stock4 event.
3 – The third offense of cheating will result in a disqualification and loss of purse and points from the event as well as a 60-day ban from competing in this class.
4 – The fourth offense of cheating will result in a disqualification and loss of purse and points for the event as well as a one-year ban from competing in this class.
Cheating bans are only for the division caught cheating in. A driver may move to another division once banned from competing in one division.
