If a racer has a non-hand-out motor blow during qualifying the racer will be allowed to change the motor, re-tech, and the racer will be placed in the slowest qualifying spot. Any qualifying times already recorded will be thrown out.
If a racer has a non-hand-out motor blow up during a warm-up period the racer will be allowed to change the motor under green and then will be re-teched.
Definition of motor blow-up: Motor comes to a complete stop and will not run or slows dramatically. The tech or race director will make the final decision regarding when this rule will be invoked.
