Here are the Final Revised AMRA Rules for the 2014 Series. The AMRA Board has done its best to keep ALL the Classes as Consistent, Competitive, Impartial, and just as possible for all the racers & race fans (for those who stood with us since the beginning, those who are racing today, and those who race with us next year and the future years to come).

 

We have heard your comments, requests, and suggestions. The AMRA Board has consulted with many technical officials, engine builders, racers, other racing associations, and other knowledgeable people to make these rules as accurate & consistent to the best of our ability. We will continue a whole-hearted effort to keep this sport that we all love growing for the future.

 

Please enjoy the season and Let’s ALL Have Some Fun! This is why we started this association and, hopefully, that’s why you have joined to race with us in The American Mud Racing Association. Because YOU Are the Association We Call the AMRA.

 

AMRA Class Rules - 2014

YOU ARE EXPECTED TO KNOW THE RULES.

IGNORANCE OF THE RULES IS NOT AN EXCUSE!

The rules and/or regulations set forth herein are designed to provide for the orderly conduct of racing events and to establish minimum acceptable requirements for such events. These rules shall govern the condition of all events, and by participating in these events, all participants are deemed to have complied with these rules. 

 

NO EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OF SAFETY SHALL RESULT FROM PUBLICATIONS OF, OR COMPLIANCE WITH, THESE RULES AND/OR REGULATIONS. They are intended as a guide for conduct of the sport and are in no way a guarantee against injury or death to a participant, spectator, or official.

 

The AMRA and Track Officials shall be empowered to permit reasonable and appropriate deviation from any of the specifications herein or impose any further restrictions that in their opinion do not alter the minimum acceptable requirements. NO EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OF SAFETY SHALL RESULT FROM SUCH ALTERATION OF SPECIFICATIONS. Any interpretation or deviation of these rules is left to the discretion of the officials. Their decision is final.

 

The rules set forth shall be effective for AMRA 2014 racing season. The AMRA reserves the right to amend, alter, suspend, delete, or supplement these rules as conditions warrant and without any prior notice. Any changes will be posted on www.IRACEMUD.com. It is your responsibility to be aware of changes posted. These rules shall govern the condition of all AMRA events.

 

Mud Racing is a competitive sport, and, like any other sporting event, it depends on fan support. There is also a great deal of showmanship and public relations required. Starting on time, running events in a professional manner, proper uniforms or attire, race trucks brightly painted and the conduct of the competitors both on and off the track must be established.

 

AMRA sanctioned events are held on private property. Any person on this property without the permission of the track owners or AMRA is guilty of trespassing and subject to the penalties prescribed by law. Through your truck registration, you have been given the authority and the right to be on this property in conjunction with your mud racing activity only. However, the track owners of the race track and the AMRA reserves the right to revoke and cancel this authority at any time it is felt that your presence or conduct is not in the best interest of mud racing, your fellow competitors, the fans, management, or officials of the AMRA.

 

Although every effort has been directed toward complete, understandable, and correct rules, as well as the same factors in putting them into print, the AMRA cannot possibly anticipate every situation, circumstance, or interpretation.

 

While the decisions, actions, or inactions, of Event Officials are not appealable, the AMRA reserves the right to reverse such decisions or review such actions or inactions on its own initiative if it determines, in its sole and absolute judgment, that such action is warranted.

 

AMRA reserves the right to amend rules as performance dictates.

 

AMRA reserves the right to adjust weights as performance dictates.
