We will not force any racer in A class to move up to PRO CLASS the following year. We do require the top racer in the C class from the previous season to advance a class from where they raced in previous season. We also suggest but do not require the second place and third place racers move from C to B , and B to A. If you feel you should not move up or have a concern please contact us at 330-987-2498 or by email

A rider may protest to move to a lower class if they feel they are not capable of competing in the higher class. No rider will be able to move after having raced four races already in a particular class. Each case will be considered individually at a meeting with the organization. We also have the final say in rider advancement.

The rider must be large enough and mature enough to control his/her machine at all times and ride it safely. This includes stopping, starting, standing still, mounting and dismounting. The referee has the authority to disqualify a rider that cannot safely control his/her motorcycle.

If any one that runs C class finishes in the top 20 overall, when there is at least 100 adult entries you MUST MOVE UP a class at the next race you participate in and you will loose all points PERIOD. The only exception is a youth rider that has advanced to an adult class We will not tolerate sand baggers in the C classes. So if you think you may even have a chance to top 20 overall we strongly suggest you don't race in C class!! Mid-East Racing Promotions has final say on all outcomes of the situation.

Riders may get mechanical assistance from their pit crews or spectators while on the course, but must finish the race on the SAME BIKE started on and under the machine’s own power or the physical energy of the RIDER HIM/HERSELF. If towed in through scoring, that lap WILL NOT COUNT.

The machine a rider brings to the starting line is considered their race machine for the event. If any rider is found to be switching machines, their results will be excluded from the race.

If a rider leaves the track for any reason, the rider must re-enter from the exact location they exited.

The marked course is within 20 feet of all arrows. Anytime double arrows are posted on both sides of the track, riders MUST stay between these arrows. Whenever there are added markers to the trail (ribbon, banners, stakes, hay barrels), rider must stay between these as well. If a rider deviates greater than 20 feet from trail, penalty will be assessed.

If a motocross track is involved in the course, it is required that each rider go over each jump as well as stay on the track, going around all marked turns or a penalty will be assessed.

Any rider encountering a “bottle neck” or “traffic jam” due to track difficulties may deviate from track greater than 20 feet, but must re-enter the course as soon as possible. Upon approaching this section on next lap, rider must follow original trail. Short cutting in these areas will result in a penalty. A “bottle neck” is only defined as a section of the course that becomes impassable due to riders being stuck on difficult terrain.

An official may use his discretion during the race to change any bottleneck from its original track lay-out. Please be alert of this and pay attention when coming upon this particular track location on your following lap.

Marking, cutting, or changing the designated course from its original appearance will be cause for a penalty. Loss of position, loss of lap, or disqualification. Any rider that rides any portion of the track before the start of the race will be assessed a penalty.

E-Bike Modified Start - "The Matt Berger Rule"

E-Bikes including Stark and Surron will be required to start with their right hand on the rear fender in an effort to equalize the playing field for the holeshot. 


All transponders will be loaned to the rider at each event. All riders will need to have a phone number, email, and address on file at registration. All riders must have a transponder, no exceptions. If a rider owns their own transponder they must bring it to registration at every event. After every rider crosses the finish line they must enter the Transponder Return Area. 

All rented transponders must be returned by the rider. If a rider leaves the race early they will be responsible for returning the transponder to registration. If a transponder is not returned the rider will be invoiced at full retail value ($100.00) or must return the transponder in a timely manner. If returning a transponder becomes a problem the rider will be charged full retail at future Mid-East Racing Promotions events. All riders will be held responsible for lost or damaged transponder.

Tech Inspection

Each rider will be required to run their machine by tech inspection prior to heading down for their race - this is to ensure transponders are working properly for the scoring system.


Have your transponder mounted securely to your motorcycle or person. All riders are responsible for mounting their transponder. If a transponder is left off the Bike the rider will not be scored. The following instructions should be followed when installing your transponder.

When riding through scoring hold your head in the forward direction to allow the back up score personal to record your helmet number.

Enter the “scoring loop” in an orderly, single line fashion. Absolutely no passing of a moving rider will be tolerated in the scoring zone. Once a rider passes the finish line they must remain in a single line fashion until they have cleared the scoring tent. ANY RACER COMING INTO SCORING TO FAST OR PASSING ANOTHER RIDER WILL BE PENALIZED A MINIMUM OF 2 MINUTES FOR THAT LAP.

Do not yell at the scoring officials, or hold your bike revved up. This does not get you out any faster. When leaving the scoring area, do not roost the workers intentionally. Leave in an orderly manner. You have miles of track to hold it open!! 

The scoring tent is not a pit stop. Do not stop within the track of the other racers. Pull off the track completely. Do not have pit crews throw water, hold goggles or pit boards out in this area. This is a NO PIT CREW area.

If you hit a scoring official, you will be penalized period! No questions!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If a rider is towed in, the lap does not count.

No passing after the checkered flag to the scoring tent The scanner will score the rider in the order that you crossed the finish line.

Once the checkered flag goes out, riders are given a reasonable amount of time to complete their final lap. The amount of time does vary depending on the length of the course. This time will be a minimum of fifteen minutes from the time the checkered flag is thrown.

A rider may get assistance on the track from their Pit Crew or spectators, but must cross the finish line under the bike’s own power or by the rider physically alone.

If a rider is towed in from the track, that lap will not count. If the rider is able to get the machine back started during the race, the rider must re-enter the track at the scoring tent.

If in the referee’s opinion, it is necessary to stop an event after 50 percent of the total time has been covered, the race may be considered completed. Riders will be scored according to their position on the lap preceding the one before the red flag.

Protest and Appeals

Once results are posted at registration, there is a twenty minute protest period. If there are any problems seen with results, this is the only time that problems will be corrected prior to handing out plaques. Once plaques are handed out, if any changes are then made to the results, plaques will not be re-collected to be handed out to the proper persons.

All protest, whether of machine, or rule violations, need to be clearly stated in writing and must be accompanied by a cash protest fee for each matter on which protest is made. All protest must be filled with the referee within thirty minutes of the results being posted by the rider. Protest fees are $25.00 unless the protest requires a machine tear down. A machine tear down protest fee shall be $250.00. $150.00 to the rider if he/she is not found in violation and $100.00 to the promoter for doing the tear down.
