Note to Competitors
The Unlimited All-Stars is intended to be a gentleman's series and all drivers and crew members are expected to act accordingly. If you can't or won't drive and act in a professional manner, then race in another division. We don't necessarily want the most drivers, but we do want the best. Please give your competitors room to race. Respect the other drivers; they have a lot invested too. Rough driving, foul language, and unsportsmanlike conduct are not appreciated. Officials are requested to be especially firm with the Unlimited All-Stars. Remember, a lot of kids look up to YOU.

These rules were created to provide parameters for the purpose of safety and consistency from track to track and region to region. Generally speaking, if a rule does not specifically state that something is not permitted, then it can be assumed that it is permitted. Series/Circuit administrators are personally involved with the Series/Circuit in their region and will monitor the effect of new technology as it is created. Any rule adjustments that become necessary to maintain a level playing field due to the introduction of new technology will go into effect the following year.
Bergfelt Racing Enterprises, LLC (BRE) and all other sponsors of the Unlimited All-Stars receive no financial considerations or monies from the events in this Series/Circuit. Their sole purpose is to publicize the races and recognize the participants and they (BRE and other sponsors) are in no way responsible for the operation or organization of the racing activities at any of the tracks that host an Unlimited All-Stars event. Competitors must realize that kart racing is a dangerous activity and they are to assume all risks to themselves and their property.
