AMR Rules & Regulations

Introduction

The Alberta Mud Racing Rules ( AMR ) are written to provide safe, competitive, and economical off road racing events.

AMR sanctions off road races as a competitive professionally officiated event, while following the Rules of Alberta Mud Racing. Improvements in rule administration or clarification cannot be accomplished through individual challenges of the rules or administration procedure. A joint effort of the owners, drivers, fans, promoter, members and Alberta Mud Racing Series personnel will improve the quality of race operations and supervision. It is the total responsibility of each participating competitor to ensure that their actions and equipment are in accordance with all designated Alberta Mud Racing Rules, as they may be clarified from time to time. The publication and compliance of the Alberta Mud Racing Rules does not guarantee, warrant or imply safety to members or non-members using this publication. The Rules of AMR are a guideline for the competitor or participant of off-road racing. Acceptance and application of the AMR Rules are in no way a guarantee against injury or death to any participant, spectator, competitor or others.
