K. FIRE RULE: 2 engine fires PER HEAT and your out. If the red flag has to be thrown and the track crew has to come and put the fire out, it is considered a fire. HOWEVER if there is a fire INSIDE the driver compartment, if it is a fuel related fire whether inside the car or under the hood, or it is deemed by the track safety officials to be a major safety issue, you will be disqualified after 1 fire. If the problem is fixed and cleared by tech as safe, you may still proceed to the consi or feature.

L. Any INTENTIONAL driver door hits you will have your stick broken. No exceptions!
