Car Owners, Drivers
& Crew personnel are advised that Buffalo
River Race Park Speedway (BRRP) does not
ensure that competing cars comply with all
documented rules on a week-to-week basis or
at the time they are technically inspected.
It is up to the individual competing the car
(Owner/Driver) to comply with the rules as
written. A technical inspection does
not constitute that a car is in compliance
with all documented rules.
Rules, components or
procedures specifically not mentioned as
being allowed are “ILLEGAL” unless approved
by BRRP. Teams that have any doubts or
questions with regards to the legality of
using any new product, procedure or an
undocumented component need to contact a
BRRP official for clarification on use with
regard to a specific class. If an individual
needs assistance in determining if his car
complies with a specific rule, then he
should contact the track tech official. BRRP
reserves the right to modify the rules at
any time to keep all manufacturers brands
competitive (i.e. GM, Ford, & MOPAR).
No express or
implied warranty of safety shall result from
compliance with these rules & regulations.
The rules are intended as a guide for the
conduct of the sport & in no way are a
guarantee against injury or death to
participants, spectators, or others.
If a car is found noncompliant with existing
rules under a protest situation they will be
penalized accordingly. Reminder - All cars
must be technically inspected before allowed
to race. Racing can be dangerous and it is
the drivers responsibility to inspect the
track surface and facility prior to entering
a race. If the driver feels there are any
unsafe conditions that he feels may put him
at risk he should not compete. The driver
should document concerns in writing and
submit them to the BRRP office for review.
