Northeast ATV MX LLC Contact & Payment Info 

Northeast ATV MX, LLC is an organization dedicated to the promotion of ATV and UTV and motocross racing. 

RAIN DATES : Any non-race Sunday between April 1stand November 1st will be considered a rain date. For weather updates call (570)656-9053 

Rain Cancellations – All attempts will be made to cancel a race due to rain in a timely manner. Please keep in mind that weather changes very quickly which sometimes makes this difficult to determine. Most of our tracks have up to date weather monitors and we keep in constant contact with them regarding weather. 

Cancellations will be determined by Northeast ATV MX LLC only. No votes will be taken. If the decision is made to run the race it will be considered a point’s race. NO EXCEPTIONS and NO DISCUSSION. If you feel you do not want to race, then don’t. However, if a race is considered, no monies will be refunded or carried over if you choose not to race. This is motocross. 

If an event has already started and rain moves in, we will make every attempt to complete the 2 moto, 4 lap races. For heavy rain we may go to a 1 moto, 4 lap race or we may reduce the number of laps. Once 

races have begun no monies will be refunded or carried over. 

Entry Fees: If a race is canceled prior to practice beginning, entry fees will be carried over to the next race at that track. If you can not make the next race at that track you will need to contact Tommy Lombardo at (570)656-9053 the week prior to the next scheduled race to receive a refund. Leave a message if nobody answers. Once the next race has started no refunds will be issued. A refund will not be issued the day the race was canceled. As always, if it is the last race at that track, and therefore, monies can not be carried to the next race, entry fees will be refunded . 

Gate Fees: Gate fees will NOT be refunded, no matter what. The tracks do incur expenses even if the race is canceled. On occasion there may be an exception to this rule, check the announcements, check with NEATV staff, or at the gate on the way out. We will make every effort to hold every race on our schedule. 

YOUTH CLASS EXCEPTION: There may be instances where the track is passable for all except youth class riders. In this case youth classes may be canceled for the day while all other classes run. Youth riders will then have their entry fees carried over to the next race at that track. Gate fees will not be refunded.

2. Riders that may be returned to a lower class are only those who officials consider completely non-competitive in the class they are leaving and will not dominate the class they are returning to. However, a rider may return to a lower class only once. 

3. A rider returning to competition after less than 3 years must return to the class that he/she left from unless an official determines otherwise. 

4. Top 3 riders in Open B or C must move up to the next class level. Assuming their age as of January 1st allows this. Special exceptions can be made on a case by case basis.

GENERAL EVENT RULES: 

1. Every club, association, promoter, rider, official and all other persons 

participating in or connected with any event are bound by these rules. 

2. At any event, the following applies: The machine must meet the class requirement for engine size. All classes need not be run in any given event. If there are five or more entries for any class, that class must be run. If there are more than five but fewer than 12 riders in each of any two consecutive classes, these classes may be run at the same time (for separate prizes). In any class with fewer than five entries, the class may be dropped at the official’s discretion. 

3. No one except riders officially entered may ride or practice on any portion of the course the day of the event 

4. A rider may use a different machine that he/she used to qualify if it is legal for their class and has their correct number plate on it. Being that NEATV runs 1-day events, there is not enough time to repair a broken machine. 

5. A rider must be ready when called to the starting area. If not ready, the rider will lose their gate pick. Once riders are on the line and the starter has gone down the line to get ready the rider has 2 minutes from that point to be ready or the race will be started. A rider will be allowed to go back to the pit area if needed, however, the 2-minute rule still applies, if the rider is not back the race will be started. 

6A. Any race stopped with two laps or less completed will require a complete restart in the original positions. 

6B. If a red flag is thrown after the gate has dropped it instantly is the official stop of that race and racers must return to their same gate even if no laps were completed. At this point a rider cannot switch machines or go back to the pit area. If any damage to the machine happens, it can be repaired only in the mechanics area if the rider was able to get the machine to the mechanics area on their own. As soon as the race is ready to go the 2 min. rule instantly goes into effect. Once a machine is towed or outside assistance is given to help that rider get their machine to the mechanics area that rider is done. Riders can have assistance getting the machine flipped back over or moved to the side of track in the area of the issue for safety reasons but must get the machine to mechanics area on their own and in a matter to not hold up restart of race. Once in mechanics area work can continue even after the start of the race and can re enter the race at any time safely. Riders can have help from their crew to repair machines in mechanics areas and can have parts and tools brought in from the pit area. 

7. If, in the official’s opinion, it is necessary to stop an event after at least 50 percent or more of the total distance has been covered, the race may be considered completed. Riders will be scored according to their position on the lap preceding the one during which they were red flagged. At the official’s discretion, the race may be resumed, and riders will be started in single file in the positions they held on the lap before the event was stopped. 

8. If a rider stops for any reason during an event, he must restart without any outside assistance. However, if a rider falls, blocking the course and endangering other riders, he may receive help or have his machine pushed off the course. An attempt to help under any other situation will result in the rider’s disqualification. Youth riders are an exception to this rule – example – if a chain falls off a youth rider can have help putting the chain back on and the youth rider can continue. 

9. A rider leaving the course must re-enter at the same point or at the first point where he can safely do so without interfering with other riders and without gaining an advantage. Failure to do so will result in the rider being penalized a minimum of one finishing position for that event. 

10. Rough riding: If a rider has a problem with another rider in their class - someone that they think is riding in a dangerous way or blatant over aggressive way (not your normal bumping, hitting wheels to wheels, or going for an opening you left room for that rider to go for). Think about it first, this is racing! That rider can file a protest form against that rider at no fee. If in a youth class, the parent/legal guardian can file a protest form. Once a rider has had 3 protest forms against them in one single season that rider will be addressed by an official and given a verbal warning and will be watched for the rest of the season. If a rider is found to be over aggressive in a dangerous or intentional way by an official only, that rider will be penalized 15 points and may also be disqualified depending on severity of offense. 

A rider or anyone associated with a rider that enters another rider’s pit area or goes after another team/rider at the track will be penalized depending on the seriousness of the offense by DQ or if the incident is serious enough DQ and suspension from further events. If both teams/riders are instigating it to a disorderly disturbance that’s drawing excessive attention BOTH riders/teams will get an automatic DQ for the day. Additionally, in both the proceeding types of incidents the rider/team member who instigated the incident could receive an additional suspension. If any incident results in a physical attack by touching or fighting that rider/team member the offender will be automatically be suspended for a full year from the date of incident and the other party may also receive a DQ for the event 

APPEAL: For an appeal of any official penalty decision made at the track an official appeal form must be filled out and turned in before the end of the event that the appeal is being made, unless the violation was serious enough to warrant removing the rider for the season or year. For an appeal of our decision to be overturned we would need a written signed statement or verbal confirmation from a track official, police officer, security guard, or a NEATV official that can say they saw a completely different outcome to whatever happened. In certain cases, videos or pictures would work depending on the offense. 

11. The official may decide the maximum number of riders who start any event. Starting riders will be those who qualify as a result of time trials or qualifying heats. 

12. If heat races are used, a rider must start a heat to qualify for the final event. 

13. Machines may be used in multiple classes by the same rider provided that both rider and ATV meet the requirements of the class. 

14. Random equipment inspections may be done at any NEATV-MX event and may include sound, 50” width and displacement. 

Any rider found illegal will lose all points earned for that race, second offense rider will lose all points earned up to that race and including that race, third offense rider will be suspended for the season. 

15. Protest rider to rider: Rider must contact an NEATV-MX official with-in one half hour after the race that the protest is being made. Rider must be 

from the same class as the rider being protested. If the rider is under 16 years of age the riders designated legal guardian or parent should submit the protest All protests must be presented with a written NEATV protest 

form and the protest fee paid in full or it will not be considered an official protest, unless it is a mandatory protest by NEATV.

In the event of a technical protest involving a teardown or removal of engine from frame, the protested rider may elect for the inspection to occur either before or after the final moto involving the protested machine. In the event the inspection is made after the final moto, the machine will be impounded between motos. Minor repairs and maintenance will be allowed only under the supervision of a NEATV Official 

Tear Down: A tear down protest is any protest that isn't a verbal or visual protest; if anything is to be removed or taken apart it will be considered a tear down protest 

Visual: A visual protest is for anything that would not require tear down or removal of any parts, for example checking width, or an external part that can be visually inspected without removal, or age verification for a class, etc. 

Penalty: Refusal of a protest will result in disqualification for that event with loss of all points and money for that event and will be subject to inspection at next event 

Anyone found illegal will be disqualified for that event losing all points and money for that event in all classes the machine or person is illegal for. If a protest is an age protest the penalty is listed under that section in the rulebook. For a second offense in the same season for the same infraction you also lose all points for the season up to that point. 

16. Grooming at starting line: 

At no time is anyone allowed in front of the starting gate to groom!! Dirt starting area - there are no tools allowed (broom, rake, shovel, etc.) and you are only allowed behind the gate. You can lift gates and remove dirt and rocks from gate arms only and grooming can only be up to the lower gate arms but not past them. 

Concrete starting area - the only tool allowed is a broom, you can sweep behind gate, you can sweep in front of gate, with gate in starting position and person behind that gate, you can lift gate and clean rocks and dirt out of lower gate arms but gate must be back in normal starting position when sweeping in front of gate. Only the concrete area in front of the gate can be swept, not the dirt in front of that.
