The Super DIRTcar Series cars and stars kick off their 2018 season this Saturday with the fourth annual Highbank Holdup 100 at Fulton Speedway in New York.

For the first time, this Super DIRTcar Series event is airing LIVE on FloRacing.com.

Before each Super DIRTcar Series event, the drivers are sent competitor notes informing them of the upcoming race, including rules, procedures, and any information they may need to prepare for the event.

In order to help better understand each Super DIRTcar Series event and increase everyone’s knowledge, we're breaking down the specific rules and notes that are sent to the competitors prior to each race.

Every series or track has its own rules and regulations; therefore these rules, notes, and purses may vary from event to event.

Highbank Holdup Provisionals 

The Highbank Holdup 100 will start the feature with a 30-car field. Four provisional positions will be available to drivers who do not qualify. With it being the first series race of the season, the first four platinum drivers in the 2017 series points who have failed to qualify for the feature will be eligible for the provisional. They must practice and make an attempt to qualify through the qualifying races.

Technical Inspection

For the first race of the season, all drivers must be prepared for mandatory pre-tech inspection on Saturday. This tech inspection is very thorough, unlike the usual week-to-week inspection, because it’s the first official series race of the season and the series directors like to make sure all drivers are safe and following the rules.
