    • Admin adjustments to the caution length may be used to prevent the cautions from being too long. At a minimum, the pits will be open two laps to allow all cars to pit. Any lapped drivers who require repairs are recommended to pit with the leaders and take the end-of-line penalty for pitting early.
    • Some drivers may be serving penalties from the prior Elite Series race. Refer to penalty report posted in the ASL Discord Group (#drivers-meeting channel).
    • Drivers are able to take provisional points once per season. If unable to make the race, please notify Jeff Yenisch via Discord, Facebook or iRacing message no later than 8:30 pm Eastern on race day to claim provisional points.

We ask all drivers to be in the Discord server before Qualifying begins. Trackside Racing Network may pull in drivers for interviews under yellow flag or after the race. Most importantly, the top three finishers will be interviewed immediately after the race.
