It is PCA Club Racing policy that an unpaid registration will not be approved, confirmed, or assigned to a Run Group until fee payment has been received by the registrar. Any 'special circumstances' regarding fee payment should be brought to the attention of the event registrar immediately.

This event is held under the current PCA Club Racing Rules.

All PCA Club Race entrants are required to have a current PCA Club Racing License (or approved New License Application), current Medical Forms (on-file in the PCA Club Racing Office), and a current PCA Membership. (New License Applications must be received by the Club Racing Program Coordinator three weeks prior to the event.)

I agree to abide by the PCA Club Racing Rules and the supplementary regulations of this event.

I agree to indemnify and hold harmless the organizers of this event and their agents, with respect to the condition and preparation of my registered car, or any subsequent failure or damage to my registered car or its occupants as a result of such failures. 

I acknowledge that at all times I remain solely responsible for the safety and roadworthiness of my registered car. 

My at-track registration signifies that my registered car information is complete and accurate. Incorrect information may cause me to be black-flagged from the track.

All Rookie Candidates and First Time Provisionals for whom this will be their first PCA Club Race MUST attend the Orientation Meeting. Others may be required to attend by invitation. Participants will be notified and information regarding time, place, and date may be obtained from the event registrar.

I understand that I am required to reimburse the Carrera of the Americas Event (and its PCA Regions) for any fees or physical damage to the track or its facilities caused by myself, my crew, and my guests and that these are not covered in my registration fee.

I agree to the following parking policy: Each garage will have a single allotted space for their support vehicle/trailer in the area across the fire lane from the garages. This holds true for multiple cars/teams sharing a garage. One garage = one support vehicle/trailer. Haulers may not necessarily be parked directly in back of each garage due to facility structures in this area; we will endeavor to park the hauler as closely as possible across from each garage for easy access. No awnings or other side structures beside or off the haulers will be permitted for those with garages (as we expect all garage-users to place all their support equipment in either the garages or within their hauler). Once the garages have been parked, we will allow other users of those garages to enter the Paddock near the Garages to unload their cars and equipment. After unloading, these cars and trailers must be removed from the Paddock and taken to Lot A. Vehicles must not be started and/or run in the garages. Vehicles may not be refueled in the garages. There is a space in front of each garage separate from the fire lane where vehicles can be pushed out to be run and refueled. Age and attire rules are in effect in this area and the rules will be enforced. These are safety considerations, and no exceptions can be made. There shall be no egress to pit road via the south-facing garage doors. These doors may be required to remain closed at all times if violations occur. No fueling of cars inside permanent garage buildings will be allowed. No fuel storage in the garages. If you have want to garage with particular folks or have special parking needs for your support vehicle please contact Race Registrar Wendy Shoffit as soon as possible after registration opens to make special arrangements.

The points races at this Club Race will earn points towards the 2019 944 Cup Southwest Chapter Racing Series as well as the 2019 PCA National Championship.
