2017 KMSA Rules



General


Some things have changed from last year so please read the rules completely. Compliance of these
rules ismandatory.

The rules and regulations set forth herein are designed to provide for the orderly conduct of
racing events and to establish minimum acceptable requirements for such events. These rules shall
govern the condition of all events sponsored by KMSA; however there are certain rules and
regulations that are set forth by different tracks that will have to be adhered to and by
participating in these events. No express or implied warranty of safety shall result from
publication of or compliance with these rules or regulations. They are intended as a guide for the
conduct of the sport and are in no way a guarantee against injury or death to a participant,
spectator or official.

The KMSA welcomes and invites everyone who runs a mini stock to run with us. We will make every
effort possible to accommodate your car. That is why we have implemented a set of weight breaks and
penalties to allow some cars that have not been able to run with us before to be able to run and be
competitive.

Association Dues and Fees

All monies collected during the season will go toward the points fund and expenses of running the
series. KMSA Yearly dues are$75.00
KMSA sanction fees are $30.00 per race for members and $50.00 for non-members.

KMSA Protest Procedures

A protest fee and written request must be made to one of the KMSA officials within 10 minutes of
the end of the feature race.

A) Any driver or car owner who wishes to protest a car may do so as long as the protester’s car
finishes in the top 6 of the feature and the car being protested finished above them.

B) The protest fee is $500.00 and must be in cash with $200.00 of the fee going to the association.
If the car being checked is found legal the protest fee goes to the car owner/driver to help pay
for gaskets etc… If it is found illegal the protest money will be returned minus the $200.00 that
went to the association.

C) If the car being protested is found illegal that car and driver loses all points and all
winnings, awards, etc. for the night and will face a 2 race suspension.

D) The driver or car owner of the car being protested has the right to face his/her accuser and
request the car making the protest to be inspected as well, as long as he/she is willing to put up
the protest fee before tech begins on his/her car. In other words, if the #00 protests the #88, the
#88 has the right to protest the #00 as well.

E) Only the registered car owner or registered driver may make a protest, no crew, wives, friends,
kids, etc....

Pre-Race Inspection

All cars must go through pre‐race inspection. At that point a KMSA official will check the
carburetor, inspect
the suspension, chassis and drive line and punch the tires. A decal will then be applied to the car
with the
information obtained during pre‐tech. Any car found to be illegal during pre‐tech will be given the
opportunity
to correct the issues before qualifying or the heat races. If anything is changed on the car before
qualifying
and/or heat races, the car must go back through pre-race inspection.

Post-Race Inspection

The top 6 cars in the feature must go through the scales and then precede to the KMSA tech tents.
You must not stop by your pit area first. Any car that goes to their pit area before going to the
tech tents will be DISQUALIFIED. Fuel will be checked on the top 6 and any other cars suspected of
running a fuel that is noncompliant. The top three cars will pull inside the tents at that point
the driver will have 10 minutes to make the decision to allow the KMSA to inspect the car or be
disqualified. A final inspection will be conducted. The engine will be checked for displacement.
Carburetors checked and tires punched. This information will be compared to the original
information and against final weights. At that point a final pass or fail decision will be made. If
anyone wants anything else to be checked it will fall under the protest provisions.

The KMSA reserves the right to inspect the entire car for rule conformity. All decisions will be
final.
