Competition Rules and Regulations: The Competition Rules and Regulations in effect at each Event shall be those posted at the Event, subject to any oral or written modification by Sponsor's or AMCI's designated representative. Participant will run two (2) timed and scored laps. Participant must wait for the starter's signal before proceeding onto any course; timing clock starts when the car crosses the official start line and stops when the car crosses the official finish line. The first lap is to be run at the scheduled time; the other lap may be run in advance of the second scheduled time with permission of the Chief Steward. Participants are limited to (2) runs on the Corvette Course. Practice Laps on the Tune-Up Track are unlimited.

Scoring: The elapsed times for participant's two (2) timed and scored laps will be recorded. A penalty of two seconds will be added per course marker hit or knocked down, including in the staging areas (before the start or after the finish lines). Course markers are defined as cones or other stationary or movable markers. Times/results will be converted to a score indexed to a pro driver's top time, which may be reset as track conditions change. Prizes will be awarded to participants based on highest scores. A DNF (“Did Not Finish”) will result in “no time” for any run that is not completed in the prescribed manner. Going off course and not returning on course in the same location and/or knocking over more than four cones are examples of a DNF. A DSQ (“Disqualified”) will result in “no time” for any run in which the participant shows loss of car control, excessive display of speed and/or disregard for the safety of those in the track area. Other DSQ examples include unsportsmanlike conduct by participant or participant's friend(s) or family, or a “burn out” (rather than a rolling start). A DSQ will be at the discretion of the Chief Steward. All “Rev It Up” officials have the right to DSQ any driver for unsafe driving in any area of the drive compound, including the Competition Course staging area. If a red flag is waved on the course, participants must immediately stop and wait for further instructions from the nearest course worker. Reruns may be offered at the discretion of course officials, including Chief Steward or Course Manager. The Event occurs rain or shine.
