Lucky Dog Rules of the Road
“Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist.”
“The hell with the rules. If it sounds right, then it is.”
―Eddie Van Halen
“If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.”
Next to driving, the rules are the hardest part of racing for you and us! It goes without saying that Lucky Dog Racing League’s top priority is safety…period…the safety of you, your team, your fan club, our staff, track personnel, rescue crew and spectators. Yes, the goal is to keep you and us out of the doghouse! Because racing and common sense tend to be mutually exclusive, we’re even more vigilant about developing a rule book that keeps you safe and levels the playing field without breaking the bank.
And while we don’t necessarily subscribe to the rule philosophies quoted above, as racers, we completely understand the passionate controversy that inherently comes with a rules discussion. As a series promoter, we are reminded that you have entrusted your safety to us, which is governed by the rules. After safety, keeping the playing field level, helping non-compliant teams become legal, and properly determining car classifications are our next priorities and our greatest challenges. Your job is to respect the "spirit of the rules." Just remember…
“You are remembered for the rules you break.”
