General Track Rules & Policies

  • Cars always have the right of way on the track! It is important to remember that there are many types of RC cars ranging from 1-pound to 15-pound trucks. They are capable of high speeds, driven by people with different skill levels. In the time it takes you to take two steps, the car can cover 30 feet! Pay special attention when you bend over to pick up a car especially around jumps, as cars can be flying 6+ feet into the air. Ask staff if there are spots kids should not marshal. Please pay special attention to young kids on he track. Kids love to help, but often fail to see dangerous situations. Do not step in front of racing cars, during practice time or any race. Practice extreme caution when on a live track. Look both ways before crossing the track, pick up stalled cars quickly, and move out of the way of traffic.
  • Children must be supervised by an adult at ALL times.
  • No open-toed shoes or flip-flops are allowed on the track or driver’s stand. Trust us on this one!
  • Please keep your language clean, there might be kids around.
  • Only drive from the driver’s stand.
  • Stay behind the railing on the driver’s stand. If you lean over, you will restrict the view of others.
  • Do not drive in the wrong direction on the track.
  • When placing your car on the track, do so from the pit lane only.
  • No alcohol or controlled substances on the property. Anyone suspected to be under the influence, will be asked to leave.
  • Treat others as you want to be treated.
  • All Li-po batteries should be charged in a Li-Po safe charging bag.
  • Aggression or otherwise inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated and dealt with in a swift manner.

Additional Rules and Policies for Racing.

  • Use of reverse is NOT allowed during races in any classes.
  • Be respectful to the marshals. It’s not their fault you crashed.
  • If you cut a corner, you must allow the car behind you, to pass you. Then you may proceed.
  • All racers must marshal after their race. If you fail to marshal you may be disqualified for your next round.
  • Call out if your car is upside down or stuck. As a driver, you are expected to call out your crash. Don’t be shy, yell it out loud, multiple times where you crashed, to let people know to go slow in that section. This helps to avoid unnecessary accidents. If you see a stopped or crashed car that someone hasn’t called out, call it out for them and remind them later (respectfully as a teaching moment) to call their crashes.
  • Any vehicle may be randomly tech inspected, at any time on race day by a race official.
  • Violation of any of these rules can result in disqualification of qualifying rounds and/or mains. 
  • By registering and competing in a race, you are agreeing to allow River City Raceway to use your name and likeness, in reporting race results and happenings on its website, newsletters and bulletins.

Zero Tolerance Policy!

There will be no fighting on the premises. Removal will be immediate and a decision on whether the parties involved will be banned will follow. No use of foul language, arguing with track officials and fellow competitors. No unsportsmanlike conduct, yelling at turn-marshals or cheating. If anyone is caught conducting any of the above mentioned, or is associated with these activities, you will be asked to leave the premises immediately. You will also forfeit your entry fee.

Please, have the right attitude. Do your part to keep this hobby FUN for everyone. No cursing or temper tantrums. We are a family friendly track.
