The White Rock Racing Series developed from the Friday night weekly racing held at White Rock Raceway. This raceway offered a fountain of young blood, as well as,  a lot of experienced racers all seeking a common goal... to have fun and enjoy HO Slot Car Racing. The series and club developed from this interest. White Rock Raceway hosts 4 routed tracks, and sponsors events at many local area race track in the area. The WR Racing Series runs several series which currently are the RockJet, NASCAR, and Trans-Am classes. The schedule and locations for each race is still being determined, as they will be hosted at various locations throughout the local Maryland Region. As this is finalized, information about the individual tracks, as well as, a Racing Schedule will be made available.

Information about the White Rock Racing Series is listed below. Also check out White Rock Raceway's Yahoo Group - this discussion group is for anyone who visits and races at White Rock Raceway.

White Rock Racing Protocol

Racing Order:

  1. Races will be run as established by our Racing Schedule.
  2. If there is only one track available all practicing cars will be of the type being run next.
  3. Practice will be available for other classes prior to their race.

Tech and Car Maintenance:

  1. All cars will be teched prior to the actual race for both weight and width. Modifications and changes are allowed to be made at the racer's own risk.
  2. All cars will be returned to impound after the Main.
  3. If a car requires maintenance, one 3 minute period per Semi/Main will be provided and may be supervised.
  4. If a car fails during the race the race will not be stopped.
  5. Normal maintenance like oiling and tire cleaning can be performed during the race by the racer only in front of his race position. The race will not be stopped for such maintenance. This maintenance may not be performed during a track call.
  6. Maintenance can be performed during the race and up to 3 minutes in between the heats as per previous rule.
  7. A broken body must be fixed or replaced before starting a heat. If a body looses parts during the race that would deem it illegal then it must be fixed prior to running the next heat.
  8. The top four/six finishers (depending on the number of lanes) in the Mains will have their cars completely re-teched to ensure race integrity. If possible this tech will be performed by a member not in the top group.

Marshals:

  1. Every racer will be available to marshal upon request.
  2. Time for working on cars will be provided between events so as to not interfere with marshaling.
  3. Refusal to marshal when requested will disqualify the racer for the day.
  4. ONLY marshalls shall handle a car during a race unless no marshall can reach the car in question.
  5. ONLY marshalls shall remove/return a car from the track at the end/beginning of a heat.
