UDSRA iRacing Rulebook

Basic Rules:

Follow these 4 Basic Rules and you should have no problems.
1) No Flaming – No Exceptions

Flaming – Angry reaction to the actions of another driver including sarcastic “Thank You” messages. If you have a problem with what someone did, shut up during race and post race chat and contact me after race.

(Penalty can range from loss of ALL Championship Points to Expulsion from League at UDSRA’s discretion. If it is decided that an incident is “Intentional Wrecking”, the minimal penalty will be probation, loss of all points for that race and a 1 week suspension from all UDSRA events)
3) Be respectful. Race others as you want to be raced. We are all hear to have a fun, lets keep it that way. No foul language, bad mouthing, etc

4) The most important rule:

UDSRA Reserves the right to penalize drivers for any incident not mentioned here that is deemed detrimental to the enjoyment of the racing experience to others. Basically, just because an action is not listed here, does not make it a proper thing to do. Race others as you wish to be raced.


Race Rules/Procedures:

Race Starts:

  • All starts and restarts will take place at a consistent speed. Consistent speed will be at the discretion of UDSRA Sprint Car Series Officials.
  • Starts will take place within a designated area that will be identified at the driver’s meeting.
  • If the front row fails to start the race properly the responsible car or cars will be moved to the second row.
  • Any car out of line and/or passing before this point will bring out a caution period and will be penalized two (2) positions on the ensuing restart.
  • No hanging back in the field during starts or restarts.
  • You must remain within 0.5 car lengths (.05-.1 seconds) of the car in front of you.
  • All front row cars must choose their racing line coming out of turn three (3) and must maintain that line until the start or restart occurs. Failure to do so will result in a two (2) position penalty.


  • All restarts will be Double-File Restarts.
  • All restarts will take place with the lead lap cars moved to the front of the field. Lapped cars will pull to the inside and fall in behind the last car on the lead lap in their order of running.
  • The grid must remain double-file and nose-to-tail until the race is started in the designated start area. The race leader sets the pace and is the control car.
  • The race leader restarts the race. Once the leader starts the race it is started for the entire field. Passing and maneuvering throughout the field is allowed as soon as the race has started.

Cautions: (Yellow Flag laps count so let’s keep them to a minimum)

  • When a yellow flag comes out, fall into single file and catch the pace car.
  • DO NOT SLAM ON YOUR BREAKS OR STOP after catching the pace car or when the yellow is shown, rather brake safely and form up behind the pace car.
  • When the yellow comes out all drivers should be single file on the high side of the track.
  • If you are the cause of the caution or stop to avoid the wreck, YOU MUST GO TO THE TAIL.
  • Any driver who has two self spins in one race without contact from another car will be asked to park for the remainder of the race.
  • Any driver who hits a driver during a yellow flag lap after the field is at pace speed will be issued a longest line penalty and a 5 point deduction towards that car at the end of the race. A second offense by the same driver will result in a 1 race suspension for that driver the immediate next week.
  • At the discretion of the UDSRA Sprint Car Series Official any car that intentionally brings out a caution period will be disqualified from the event.
  • Any cars that stop, either on the racing surface and/or in the pit/designated work area, during a caution period will be required to restart from the rear of the field.
