AMP Supplemental Rules:

Pit, Paddock and Garage Supplemental Rules:

SRPP1 – Pit lane spaces will be assigned.

SRPP2 – No crew members are allowed over the wall until the team car has come to a complete stop in the pit box.

SRPP3 – The Hot Pit Lane will be the exclusive fueling area. Fueling of race cars shall be completed by use of 5-gallon plastic jugs and funnels, hoses or other fueling adapters as specified in the ChumpCar BCR. Jugs must have sealable lids/caps. Metal fuel drums or other fuel containers and caddies with manual pumps (no electric pumps) and hose lines are allowed to re-fill plastic jugs but are not allowed for re-fueling race cars. All fuel storage must be maintained on the ”cold” side of the pit wall or kept within your transporter.

SRPP4 – All teams shall have one (1) fully-charged 10LB ABC fire extinguisher in their pit area. All teams shall have one (1) 10LB bag of kitty litter or other reasonable absorbitant for oil leaks and/or fuel spillage in their pit area. Having a broom handy is also be advisable.

SRPP5 – Drivers may remain in the car during fueling and driver changes may also be completed. All engines and electrical kill switches must be off during fueling. NO WORK ON ANY CAR SHALL BE COMPLETED DURING REFUELING.

SRPP6 – All work and/or repairs that can be made to your race cars in under thirty (30) minutes may be executed in the Pit Lane; all repairs requiring more than 30 minutes time must be completed in the Garage Area. A penalty of 1 lap for every five (5) minutes of work in the pit lane that exceeds 30 minutes shall be levied.

SRPP7 – All team members over the wall during fueling must wear a SFI certified fireproof driver’s suit, gloves and full-face helmet.

SRPP8 – Electric, propane or kerosene heaters within the “cold” side of the pit wall are allowed provided all heating elements or flame sources are directed away from any flammable material and are kept a minimum of 20’ from any fuel storage. No open flame stoves or BBQs are allowed in the cold pits.

SRPP9 – All cars, used or junk parts too big for a normal trash can, empty fuel drums and anything else you brought with you must be taken out with you. If you leave it behind, we’ll track you down… and it won’t be pretty.

Lighting: The pit lane has very limited lighting and minimal pit/paddock area lighting. Be advised that ambient lighting may not be sufficient for fueling or mechanical repairs. Therefore, teams are advised to consider alternate power and lighting sources. The use of EZ-ups on the “cold” side of the pit wall are also recommended for keeping out weather and hanging all lighting fixtures.

Pit Passes – Teams are advised that any and all team members, family, guests who desire Pit Lane access MUST purchase a Pit Pass through ChumpCar.

Overnight Camping: Self-contained RV and tent camping is allowed. The cost is $25 for the weekend, payable to AMP at the front gate.

Barbecues: BBQ’s are allowed in the camping area only, provided all BBQ’s are supervised at all times, a fire extinguisher is within 15’ of the open flame, and all open flames are (at a minimum) 20’ from all race cars, fuel storage or other flammable sources.

Weather: We’re racing, regardless of the weather.

The Supplemental Rules May Be Updated Without Notice. Teams Are Advised To Check Them With Regularity And Print A Copy For Reference Prior To Coming To The Event
