Any outside assistance given to a driver inside the “Driver Only” area, will result in a DQ for that driver. A driver may carry tools and spare parts with them on stage for any repairs of any breakage while on stage. If a driver does not have what he/she needs to complete the repair, they must leave their rig on stage at the location of the breakage. The broken rig should be set just off to the side of the trail.
