Protest
  • All protests relating to a racing incident must be submitted within 72 hours of event completion. Protests that are submitted late will be dismissed.
  • We suggest drivers involved in an on-track situation to talk it over with one another first before turning in a Stewarding Protest. Take it upon yourselves to watch the replays, even in slow motion if needed.
  • Protests that are incorrectly submitted or late will be dismissed. Please contact the Chief Steward directly if you are having issues making a submission before the 48 hour time limit.
  • The driver being protested may be contacted by the Chief Steward if their PoV is deemed necessary, either by the website private message system or by email. The protested driver then has 72 hours to submit his/her own evidence. A ruling can be made by the Stewards without needing the Protested driver's PoV.
  • The incident will be reviewed by the Stewards, and a decision will be announced in the respective championship’s "Stewards Reports" topic, along with the Incident ID.
Appeals
  • All appeals must be submitted within 72 hours of the publication of the Stewards Report as follows:
  • Appeals shall be reasonable, logical, based on sound evidence, and related to the PRL Racing Rules.
  • Appeals that are frivolous, incorrectly submitted, or late will be dismissed. Repeated appeals of this nature will result in disciplinary action.
  • Only one appeal per incident is permitted.
  • The Appeal will be reviewed by the PRL Stewarding team, and a decision will be announced in the respective championship’s Stewards Reports thread.
  • If a driver loses 2 Appeals in a 30 day period, they will have a 60 day ban placed on them before being able to Appeal another ruling by the Stewards.
Penalties
  • The penalties that can be awarded for infractions of the rules include points deductions, race disqualifications, race suspensions, or you may be made to start the next race from the pits.
  • More severe penalties may be given in some circumstances. The PRL Stewards reserve the right to award any penalty they feel is appropriated.
  • Some protests will result in a warning rather than a penalty, but a second warning within 3 months may result in a penalty.
Penalty Matrix
Penalty matrix is only being displayed in an effort to help the drivers understand how penalties are applied given the infraction being assessed. PRL Stewards reserve the right to deviate from this penalty structure based on the nature of the incident.

    • Neil Alexander has been found responsible of an incident before the fountain. Since the road was half block and yellow flag was thrown, stewards awarded a major penalty to Neil for causing a collision with Galaz (other cars involved/impacted).
      • An appeal was received from Neil Alexander . An extended stewarding teams reviewed the incident and they are still considering it as a Major. Forst, under yellow flag condition, stewards concluded that Neil was not enough careful, especially when the yellow flag is a the fountain of long Beach. Galaz did not spun in front of Alexander, it's rather a netcode that caused the collision. Stewards concluded that even without the netcode, Alexander would have collided with Galaz.

Olson was on the left side, Haynes on the middle side and Oring on the right side. Haynes had enough overlap to entitle the place in the corner but Olson closed on him. On the other hand, Stewards think Haynes could have lift up but there was also Oring on the inside. Following the contact, Oring managed to avoid contact and did a little lost of control. Horvath managed to avoid everything. Gunderson reacted to the incident and got a little off track which made his car unbalanced and touched Norris while rejoining.
