2.0 Sanctioning Body Regulations:
Jeepspeed rules do not in any way replace or modify the competition and safety regulations issued by the race organizer or sanctioning body. Stock or Production class rules will apply in Jeepspeed Class 1700 unless modifications are specifically allowed herein. This does not necessarily mean that any organizer will allow you to run in the Stock or Production classes (in the event that they do not have a Jeepspeed specific class), but you will still be held to the rules for those classes. Starting order will be selected by the race organizer. Jeepspeed is not responsible for the safety and mechanical condition of any race vehicle. Prior to competing in any given season teams can designate a Driver of Record and a Secondary Driver. Driver of Record is responsible to ensure all team members sign all waivers and releases before the
event.
Driver of Record or the designated Secondary Driver must drive the race vehicle either off the official start or across the finish line of the event to gain Championship points, prize money or awards for the
Driver of Record. The only exception is if the driver of record is injured during the race and is unable

to continue during the event safely.
*Note. If the driver of record has signed all releases and picked up arm band but did not start the race
and the vehicle does not finish the driver of record will still receive any points or awards due to him/her.
Driver of record must present vehicle to the Jeepspeed race representative at the Jeepspeed booth at
pre-race contingency for verification of Jeepspeed rules conformity. Driver of record, co-drivers and pit
crew must also sign all Jeepspeed waivers required before starting the event. Failure to comply will
exclude the team from participating in Jeepspeed Classes. If any Jeepspeed team goes through race organizers late tech, or outside published time, that team must also comply with the above before being allowed to race in a Jeepspeed class.
The Jeepspeed Association only describes the specifications of the competition Jeep vehicles. The
approval of safety equipment and technical inspections will be the responsibility of the event organizers
or sanctioning body. The vehicle owners, drivers and passengers assume any and all risks and liability arising from the construction and use of their vehicles. There is a $150 registration fee for the issuance of a permanent

race number. There is a $100 per year renewal fee to retain that number. This registration expires Dec 31st of each year. Competitors are notified that it is expressly agreed that Jeepspeed Association LLC.,Totally Jepspeed Inc., Don-A-Vee Motorsports LLC, dba California Race and Rally, and Jeepspeed, its officers,

directors, agents, sponsors and employees have no liability, joint or several, to anyone for the results of any occurrence during participation with race teams. This release of future acts of negligence is given with the intent to waive the protection of Cal. Civil Code 1541 which would have protected your right to
have asserted claims about which you do not know.

Code of conduct Jeepspeed requires that registered competitors and their team members will not engage in any conduct that can be deemed harmful to the goals and reputation of Jeepspeed, its officers, its sponsors and race promoters.
Such breach of conduct at Jeepspeed events, at social conventions, on Jeepspeed website or at any time whilst displaying Jeepspeed or Jeepspeed sponsor decals on clothing or automobiles could lead to Jeepspeed Championship point penalties or exclusion from Jeepspeed events solely at the discretion of Jeepspeed. All vehicles must maintain an appearance of paint and bodywork that is acceptable to Jeepspeed’s professional image. Jeepspeed reserves the right to accept or decline team entries.

3.0 Protests, Rule Violations, and Penalties: No official protest concerning fellow Jeepspeed competitors is to be lodged with the race organizer without first being submitted to the official Jeepspeed representative at the event. If the involved parties cannot resolve the situation, then it can only be submitted to the race organizer after it is countersigned by the Jeepspeed representative. Keep in mind that many race organizers require a substantial fee for filing an official protest. It is the registered competitor’s responsibility to have read and understood all rules.

A $300 fee will be required to protest another vehicle relating to Jeepspeed specification rules. This fee must be submitted to the Jeepspeed representative at the event at the time the protest is lodged. On occasions a Jeepspeed Competition Review Board may meet with the Jeepspeed representative directly after the finish of the event. This Review Board will assist the Jeepspeed representative regarding rule infractions and penalties. Infractions or non-compliance of the Jeepspeed specification rules may result in

a warning or punishment at the discretion of the Jeepspeed representative at the event. A warning may consist of a Fixer Ticket, which would require the vehicle to be within compliance of the rules prior to
starting the next event. A minor punishment may include loss of points, loss of one or more finish positions, and or loss of any prize and contingency monies. A major punishment may include disqualification from the event, from a number of subsequent events, and/or a total ban from all future Jeepspeed events. The decision of the Jeepspeed representative at the event will be final.

Event organizers and race sanctioning entity will be responsible for enforcing all event and vehicle safety regulations, and posting official race results.

On beam axle models the suspension travel will be considered the vertical distance from the metal bump stop pad on the axle to the metal bump stop bracket /pad on the frame, not including the rubber, plastic or urethane bump stop. On IFS models the front wheel travel will be measured at the center line of the front spindle as the suspension is stroked through its travel from metal stop top metal stop. The length of the shock absorber shaft will not be used to calculate or measure wheel travel. Suspension travel may be checked before or after an event. Competitors are responsible at all times for providing the correct jacking devices for their jeep in the technical inspection area prior to the race as well as in the winners impound area after the race to enable

race officials to check wheel travel.
