•This is a night race on an unlit track. Each team must provide its own illumination. The hot pits/fueling area is lit and there is also lighting in the carports. The rest of the paddock is unlit.
•While good-quality, properly aimed OE headlights are generally up to this task, aftermarket lights are legal. DON'T OVERTHINK IT: A small number of high-quality, properly mounted, correctly aimed headlights or driving lights is much more effective than a large number of crappy add-ons. Trophy-truck-style unfocused LED floodlight bars are really likely to get you black flagged. 
•During daylight hours, forward lights may be removed.
•Lights, mounts, switches, wiring, etc DO NOT count towards the $500 total.
•From dusk to dawn, all cars must have at least two working headlights, one working taillight, and one working brake light. Multifilament tail/brake lights are acceptable.
•The center of all lights must be no higher than 6" above the hoodline; roof-mounted lights not allowed.
•There is no limit on number of lights. However, lights must not be unduly dazzling or distracting to others.
•If we deem your lights overly dazzling, too dim, badly aimed, or problematic in any other way, you can be black-flagged. Don't screw around.

•At this time, we will be enforcing the following. If there are changes, they will be posted here first. 
•Maintain six feet of social distance from anyone not on your team
•Stay home if you have symptoms
•Tell Lemons officials immediately if you have symptoms on site  

•Paddock parking is first-come, first served.
•Special reserved parking (garages, awnings, RV hookups, luxury condos) are handled by the track--contact them directly for info. https://www.highplainsraceway.com/rv-carport-rental-information/
•Paddock spaces are typically around 20x40.' If you have vehicles that won't fit in that box, be prepared to park in lots outside the main paddock.
•The timing tower is off limits--please keep out. 

•All Drivers and Crew must check in at the gate, sign the Lemons waiver, and get a Participant wristband before entering.
•Spectators--review the spectator info above.
•Drivers must check in separately with a valid street license at Lemons HQ in the paddock to get a Driver wristband (Crew members only need the Participant wristband obtained at the gate).
•Drivers can get their wristbands anytime--you don't have to wait for your team's assigned car tech time. HQ will be open during tech and race hours.

•Your team's BS/Car Tech time will be assigned. Check the schedule above for your team's time.
•Complete your tech sheet BEFORE coming to BS/Car Tech.
•Once you have completed BS/Car Tech, turn in your completed tech sheet to Lemons HQ and you will get your team packet.

Wear your full safety gear, including head-and-neck restraint, to gear tech
•Gear Tech takes place during regular tech hours. You can show up anytime--you don't have to wait for your team's assigned car tech time. If you miss it, just go the Penalty Box for a onesy-twosy inspection.
•Drivers can get their gear teched anytime--you don't have to wait for your team's tech time. Check the schedule above for Gear Tech times.

•Fueling will be in the hot pits (and track pumps). No fueling in your paddock space during the race.
•Everyone in the fueling area must be in full safety gear.
•Everyone in the fueling area must be a registered driver or crew member--no spectators.
•Bring your supplies up, fuel the car, and take it all away. No staging of fuel or gear.
•There are no assigned hot-pit spots.
•Don't park support vehicles near the fuel area.
•Kill switch off; no one in car; drip pan in place; and a dedicated extinguisher person are all mandatory while fueling.
•Only fueling, driver change, windshield cleaning, and cool-suit ice changes allowed in the hot pit. For everything else (tire pressure, fluid checks, engine swaps) go to the paddock.
•Full gear is not required at track pumps, but no one can be in the car and the kill switch must be off.
