The following line-up procedures are utilized bay all classes running at Central Alberta Raceways, unless the visiting club has there own line-up procedures and organizer to enforce adherence.

Heat 1: Upon registering an automated program randomly assigns each racer a number between 0-1 (For example. 0.999999999...).  This random generated number represents the starting order (lowest to highest)
 
Heat 2: The top 12 drivers are award a points based upon each their Heat 1 finishing position (1st-12pts, 2nd-11pts, 3rd-10pts, etc).  The field is then inverted, therefore the top finishers will be starting at the back.  NOTE: If running A and B heats to accommodate numerous racers then the top finisher from the first heat races will be placed in Heat 2B while slower cars shall run in Heat 2A.  The premise being for tighter heating for both driver and spectator excitement.
 
Main:  Points earned in both Heat 1 & 2 races are added and then inverted to determine starting position.  Thus that have earned most points will be starting at the rear, while those with the least points from that race day will have pole position.
 
NOTE:  These procedures are intentionally force drivers to race for points not position.  If a driver intentionally does poorly in the heat races throwing away valuable heat points (max 24pts) to simply gain a better starting position in the Main there they may earn max of 24pts.
As noted above, the inverted race field has proven to be far more exciting for both drivers and spectators as each racer earns their points.

    NOTE: French Grimes Racesaver 305 Engines
    Rimbey Raceway wilI allow the Racesaver engines to compete ONLY after the technical staff has inspected and documented all pertinent head information. The French Grimes RaceSaver engine rules are at http://www.racesaver.com/rules.cfm?rk=9
     
    Central Alberta Raceway management reserves the right to modify any rules at any time to ensure a fair and competitive event for all participants. Technical Inspection is at the discretion of the technical inspector to enforce and interpret the rules.
     
    Central Alberta Raceway will run a Sportsman Sprint Championship in 2016.
    The following format will be used:
    1. AII races to count
    2. Each entry will receive 25 show points
    3. Each entry wiil receive 2 ten lap heats (no points) to determine starting position in the main.
    4. Heat 1A, B etc will set the inside row, Heat 2A, B etc will set the outside row
    5. B main will be run if necessary (10laps) no points
    6. Each position in the 20lap main will receive 2 points i.e. 1st-32 points - 16th 2 points
    7. 16 cars only will qualify for the A Main.
    8. Only the A main will be paid, all positions equally (16).
These are requirements that every car and driver must adhere to.  These requirements are generally inclusive of driver, competitor, staff or spectator safety.  Techs shall be inspecting and enforcing adherence to these rules. Rules are binding for a 3 year term. Track Decisions Decisions of officials are the final and binding without exception.  In all cases, track safety rules will take precedence over oval rules – any discrepancy between track rules should be brought to the attention of track official.
