5. For all NASCAR sanctioned races the following procedure will be used: When a caution flag is displayed in the last 5 laps of the race event; all lapped cars/trucks will be placed to the rear of the field, behind the last car on the lead lap, based on the last green flag lap position of the lapped car and then it will be a single file restart with no cone.
If a caution is called after the field has taken the green flag; the field is re-set by placing all cars/trucks back in their original starting position except for the car(s)/truck(s) involved; they are put to the rear of the field based on how they left the caution area, and/or entered the pits for repairs, etc.

If less than half (1/2) of the field does not cross the start finish line, then this lap is not kept and line up reverts back to the last green flag lap.

Then the “FREE PASS” will be transferred to the next eligible car/truck.
