If a black-flagged car fails to heed the flag for two laps. Scoring for that car will discontinue until the flagman gives further notice. Penalties for ignoring the black flag will range from one lap to disqualification, at the discretion of the race director. When a black- flagged car enters the pits, he will be directed by the pit steward as to the reason for the black flag and the appropriate actions to be taken. If the car is able to return to the track, scoring for that car will resume at that time.

WHITE FLAG (One Lap Remaining) Ė The white flag will be displayed when the leader has started the last lap of the race. No car may receive any assistance after the white flag has been displayed.

CHECKERED FLAG (End of Race) Ė The checkered flag will be displayed at the completion of the race. When the checkered flag is given to the leader, the remainder of the field receives the flag in the same lap.
