Rules

Introduction

A Stadium Super Truck (SST) event is a competitive racing event which is intended to be conducted and officiated in accordance with this rule book. This rule book may be amended from time to time. Special rules may be published by (SST) specifically for the event and any applicable agreements to which (SST) is a party may also apply. This rule book contains rules and technical requirements governing all events that make up the Stadium Super Truck Series. This Rule book is designed to provide the information you will need to prepare your vehicle and yourself for competition, plus an overview of rules that apply to the racing program, along with a summary of offenses and penalties pertaining to rules violations. It is ultimately the obligation of each participant  to ensure that his/her conduct and equipment comply with all applicable (SST) rules, as they may be amended from time to time.

The intent of a specific rule will override a competitor’s interpretation of a rule. The intent of a rule will be determined by competent race officials (Race Director). If any rule is unclear to the competitor, the competitor is advised to get written approval prior to any modifications. The (SST) will answer any requests for rule clarifications or interpretations. Requests must be submitted in writing by competitors or team owners to (SST) Racing Tech Director. Any prior verbal approval from (SST) staff or officials without a written statement from the (SST) Racing Tech Director with regard to the interpretation of a rule or procedure will be deemed invalid. Please note that while every effort has been made to write these rules in a clear and unambiguous fashion, it is impossible to anticipate every circumstance. It will be up to the (SST) Racing Tech Director to make decisions regarding rule enforcements.

EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OF SAFETY SHALL NOT RESULT FROM PUBLICATION OF, OR COMPLIANCE WITH, THESE RULES.

Appendix A – Substance Abuse Policy

Introduction Through a comprehensive testing program SST Substance Abuse Policy rules are designed to keep events safe for everyone and provide a level playing field. Strong testing programs save lives, prevent injury, gives SST members additional reasons to say no to illegal drugs and help identify people with substance abuse issues and facilitate their treatment. To those ends, SST prohibits the misuse of alcohol, prescription drugs, and any other substance used in a manner that affects safety or impacts the integrity of the competition, including but not limited to illegal or performance enhancing substances.

Medical Review Director/OfficerPolicy of this program is overseen by SST, but its administered and implemented through a Medical Review Director/Officer, testing laboratories and substance abuse professionals.

  • Medical Review Director/OfficerThe MRD/MRO is responsible for, among other things, administering collection of samples/collections under this policy, coordinating secure shipment of specimens to the testing facility, ensuring thorough and accurate scientific testing of specimens, determining whether any SST member has been tested positive for ingestion of drugs, alcohol or prohibited substances or otherwise violated this policy, and informing SST and the SST member of any such violation. In making this determination, the MRD shall consider all information derived from the testing process.
  • Testing LaboratoryWith the exception of pre-license testing, all testing pursuant to this policy will be done at the SST designated testing laboratory. The collection, transport, and testing of urine, blood, saliva, hair and/or breath specimens pursuant to this policy results will be communicated to the MRD.

SST Members Subject to TestingAlthough this policy is intended to apply principally to drivers, competitors, mechanics, and crew members as well as SST officials, all other SST members are required to adhere to SST’s Substance Abuse Policy and are subject to reasonable suspicion testing, as well as subsequent follow up testing that is necessary.

  • Drug TestingSST will regularly test any competitor or official whose performance at a SST event potentially affects the safety of themselves, other SST members, spectators and guests, including but not limited to: SST officials, drivers, competitors, mechanics and crew members.
  • Performance Enhancing Drug TestingSST will regularly test any competitor, whose use of illegal or performance enhancing drugs or substances could alter or enhance their performance at a SST event to create a unfair advantage or impact the integrity of competition, including but not limited to: drivers and competitors.

Prohibited Substances and Acts 

1)     For the purpose of this policy, prohibited substances are those substances that, in the MRD’s determination, in consultation with SST, may adversely affect the safety and well being and performance of a SST member at a SST event, including without limitation illegal drugs. The MRD, in consultation with SST, may make this determination with respect to a particular substance at any time, including and without limitation at the time of discovery of the substance following a drug test. For the purpose of these rules, federal bans and definitions of illegal substances supersedes any state and/or local ordinance, regulation or law allowing use of a substance. SST members are prohibited from using, possessing, purchasing, selling and/or participating in the distribution of any drug that is illegal to possess, use, and/or distribute by the laws of the United States of America and/or any of its 50 states, regardless of the amount, at any time.

2)     Medical and Non-Medical Use of Prescription and Over the Counter Medications SST recognizes that there are many prescription  and over the counter medications that serve essential or beneficial purposes for the health and well-being of SST members, and nothing in this policy is intended to discourage the proper use of these medications. Some medications, even when properly used, may adversely affect the safety and integrity of competition for motorsports events. For example, many types of cough medicines contain codeine, which is a potent narcotic that may result in drowsiness or diminished alertness. Non-medical use of prohibited, prescription, or over the counter medication by a SST member is prohibited, and the MRD will examine whether:

a)     the medication was used in a manner inconsistent with the instructions provided by the manufacturer, pharmacist and/or the prescribing physician;

b)     the medication causes a competitive advantage, or a diminished or impaired ability to perform duties on the day of the event;

c)     the medication was used without a valid prescription from a licensed and treating physician that was given for a legitimate medical purpose;

d)     the SST member failed to advise the issuing physician that another physician was prescribing the same and/or similar medication; and or

e)     the medication was prescribed more than 90 prior to a SST event. For the purposes of the rules, federal bans and definitions of illegal substances supersedes any state and/or local ordinance, regulations or law permitting the use of a substance.

3)     Alcohol – A SST member is prohibited from consuming any alcohol 12 hours prior to or during any SST on track activity or event. A SST member with breath, urine, saliva, or blood alcohol level above 20mg per 100ml (.02%) at the time of testing is deemed unfit for race driving, participating or officiating in a SST event. Nothing in this paragraph shall preclude a SST official from determining that a SST member with a breath, urine, saliva, or blood alcohol test level below 20mg per 100ml (.02%) is physically unfit for race driving, participating, or officiating in a SST event and taking such action as a SST official may deem appropriate under the SST rules.

4)     Dietary Supplements – Dietary supplements may contain (either purposefully or through contamination) a prohibited substance under this policy. Any product sold with a warning advising non-use if the purchaser is subject to a drug testing program should be avoided even though such product may be available without a prescription.

5)     Masking Agents – The use or attempted use of any agent or technique that is designed to avoid detection of a prohibited substance and/or falsify, alter, compromise, or otherwise tamper with the integrity of a specimen or test under this policy is prohibited. This includes providing false urine samples (e.g., urine substitution), contaminating the urine sample with chemicals or chemical products, using pharmaceutical diuretics to purposefully dilute the urine sample, using masking agents, using Aromatase inhibitors that may be used to biologically manipulate the testosterone/Epitestosterone ratio, and/or using epitestosterone to artificially alter the testosterone/epitestosterone ratio.

6)     Synthetic Marijuana – Over the counter products that are marketed as “legal” marijuana using names like “K2” or “Spice.”

7)     Manner or Use

a)     Safety – The use of any legal or illegal substance, or combination of substances, which when taken into the human body, can impair the ability of the person to perform safely is prohibited. Under this policy, any substance or combination of substances used in an unsafe manner is a violation. For example, a combination of drinking 10 cups of espresso, taking cold medicine and using prescribed sleep medication will cause a safety risk, although each substance in small amounts by themselves may not necessarily result in a violation of the SAP.

b)     Integrity of competition – The use of any legal or illegal substance, or combination of substances, which when taken into the human body, can alter or enhance a person’s ability to compete in a manner unfair to other competitors is a violation. For example, a legal substance may be substantially similar to an illegal drug – i.e., an analogue or derivative of an illegal drug – use of that substance will result in a violation of the SAP.
