UTV 570 Class
A question was asked about an existing rule and how/if it applies to the new UTV 570 Class. "Are we still dropping 2 races even though the UTV 570 Class had a shorter season?"
My official ruling upon reviewing our posted rules is as follows: Though dropping less or no races could have been a consideration at the beginning of the UTV 570 season, it would not be fair nor justified to modify a rule such as this at anytime after the season has started. Everyone was aware of the "drop 2 races from the season" rule and no exceptions were made for any classes when the rule was imposed. No rule of this type can be, nor should be, changed after the season has started. This rule was known to all racers and in our posted rules at the start of the season and could only have been modified for the UTV 570 Class at the beginning of their season if the question or concern had been raised at that time.

PLEASE READ 2019 New Update!
After long talks AZOP has decided to mandate colored backgrounds for all classes next year. It will be more professional and it will help everyone decipher who is in what class or level. We know it's not easy to change your background colors and some get upset but we feel in the long run it will be best for everyone. We hope everyone understands. We will also be giving out new colored day passes as well.
Look at the photo below at what all the color combinations will be. Please Share and pass this along. This will not go into effect until Jan 1, 2019. We wanted to get it out now so you have ample time to get your new backgrounds...
Thanks for racing with us....

Attention All 65C Riders
All 65C riders that sometime race 65B will no longer be allowed, however we have added a class for them to make the transition to Minis which will be called OPEN MINI. This will be a Non Points class (Trophies Only) but will allow the kids to try out racing with the Minis.

Updated rule for 170 and 570 class UTVs:
This new rule is strongly recommended to be implemented immediately however, you will not fail tech inspection until 2019 when this rule will be mandatory. We have requested any vendors attending our events to have them available for purchase for your convenience. The parents of the driver and co-driver will be asked to sign the tech form acknowledging we have recommended having a fire extinguisher and by signing, the parent or guardian is acknowledging they were made aware their UTV did not have one during the tech inspection.
An externally mounted fire extinguisher (2.5 lb minimum size) with quick release mount. Preferably mounted on a rear rollbar so it is easily accessible to anyone rendering assistance.
This is not meant nor recommended to be used by the minor age driver nor co-driver.
In the event of smoke or fire, all minor age drivers and co-drivers are recommended to leave the UTV and get well off the race course and stay well away from the UTV that is experiencing smoke or fire of any kind. Please let an adult or safety personel render assistance when they arrive to make use of the fire extinguisher if necessary.
