tear down will be considered the same as a performance rule violation

class is in violation of a rule, he or she may protest that racer for
further inspection. The protesting racer must have a tech card for the
current race. The racer making the claim must specify the violation to
be checked for and put up a $200 protest bond plus any additional costs.
Additional costs include but are not limited to damaged
parts, gaskets, and reassembly fees by a professional shop of the car
owners choice. Maximum shop fees will be set at the time of protest to
not be excessive for the work to be done at the judgment of the KOTS
president. If the racer is found guilty of that rule violation, the
claimant will get his protest money back.
In the event of inclimate weather , the decision
to call a race is the decision of the hosting track.
