2016 Drug Testing/Alcohol Policy

What:

Rocky Mountain Raceways will conduct random drug and alcohol tests of both RMR competitors and RMR staff members.  We will test an undetermined number of racers and employees picked at random on race day. All competitors, regardless of class, may be tested.  We have a mobile testing company that will be at our facility.  Racers selected at random will be brought to the main office for testing.  There will be no refunds given for a “failure to report” situation.

Why:

Motorsports involves inherent risk.  I need to make sure that I am providing the safest possible platform for all of you to perform.  If one of you is under the influence of illegal, mind-altering substances while behind the wheel of a racecar, motorcycle, quad, or side-by-side, then I am failing the entire group in providing a safe place to race.  All of you should be at your full faculties when operating your racing apparatus.  It only takes a small slip up by someone not in the correct frame of mind to cause a major incident and thousands of dollars in unnecessary damages, meanwhile risking the safety of the racers, the patrons, and the RMR staff.

Penalty:

Upon a failed substance test, your racing privileges will be immediately suspended for the next 3 events (including that night) for your class.  After the three race suspension, you will need to provide a negative test back to RMR by the same testing company that will perform our tests on site to regain racing eligibility, within 24 hours of the race you wish to compete.  The cost for the follow up testing will be incurred by the driver in violation.  In the event of a failed test, information will be given to the responsible party to make arrangements for further testing.  If alcohol shows positive, you will then be subject to a breathalyzer test.  Anything greater than .000 will result in a one-event suspension, which will be administered day of. WVPD will conduct a private breathalyzer on the next event for that competitor.

Appeal:

If you are found with a positive test, you may appeal by having another test administered on site.  The competitor will pay for the cost of the re-test.  If the test comes back negative, the track will reimburse the cost.  If a race is missed during the process, the track will credit the average class points for the event to the competitors overall points for the season after the driver pays the missed event entry fee. If the second test is positive, the penalty is enforced and the driver must adhere to the testing guidelines.
