2020 TexPlex UTV Racing Series Final Rules

The following rules and regulations are solely applicable to the TexPlex Texas UTV Racing series events. Please direct any questions to TexPlex Park.

  1. GENERAL
    1. Format: UTV/SXS racing will follow a 2Moto format (MX).
      1. How long is a moto, and how is it scored?
      2. Once the green flag drops, each moto lasts up to thirty minutes or a maximum of 6 Laps. Number of Laps will be pre-determined at each event based on overall length of the track layout. All classes race two motos (except 170), and the scores from each moto are combined to determine the overall winner. Points are awarded for each moto, starting at twenty-five for first place, twenty-two for second, twenty for third, and so on. In the case of a tie in total points for the day, the rider who finishes higher in the second moto gets the advantage. At the end of the season, the racer with the most points is awarded the TexPlex SXS Showdown Championship.
  • There are several flags that you will see waving throughout the day. The green flag signifies the start of the race on the opening lap. The yellow flag is a caution flag to signify a disabled racer or obstruction on the course, but unlike in most other racing series, the yellow flag does mean that riders cannot pass each other. No Passing under a yellow flag. The red flag stops the race if there is a problem on the track. The blue flag with a yellow stripe is shown to lapped riders to warn them to move over as they are being overtaken by the leaders. The white flag signifies one lap to go, and the checkered flag, the one every racer wants to see first, means the race is over.
  1. Minimum Age Requirement
    1. Competitors (drivers and passengers) must be at least 18 years of age at the time of the event. Competitors under 18 are allowed if accompanied by parent or guardian.
