Racer notes from FMRA president Mike Nelson:

1) In the effort of safety we would ask drivers that once you are lapped by the leader. To move to the bottom grove and hold that line for the whole track unless you are going trying to overtake a car in front of you.
2) Since we are racing at multiple tracks, we have to adapt to what the track owner feels that is best to put on a good show. This includes no heats,  features only , 15 /20/25/30 lap races for the features. That being said each of the flagmen control the racing surface differently.  Once the flagman makes a decision (right or wrong) we have to accept it and move on. Going forward a board member will talk to the flagman before each race to inform him of our racing guidelines (starts, restart, cars that have spun, lapped cars ect..). All we can do is suggest , we can not dictate our rules to the flagman. In the end it is his surface to control. 
3) FMRA and the tracks that give us the opportunity to race will not put up with rough driving or actions of retaliation on track. 

Thank you for your time , Mike
