    All endurance teams are required to complete a team registration form and submit it to the MRA Secretary, Jen Grosse, prior to competition at The MRA reserves the right to allow or disallow any Team to compete in the Series.
    4Hour Endurance Entry Form: All points scored by a Team during an endurance race/season are owned by the registered Team Owner. The registered Team Owner has the option of being a rider.
    A Team Captain must be designated by the Team Owner. It is at the owner’s discretion to be the Team Captain or to name someone else. The Team Captain may be a Team Rider. It is mandatory that the Team Captain be present at all races entered by the Team during the season.
    A Team (Pony Express and True Endurance) may have no more than four Team Riders during an endurance race/season. A Titanium Butt rider may have no more than one rider during the race/season. In the event a Team Rider is injured or becomes unable to compete, the Team Owner may petition the MRA board for special consideration to allow that rider to be replaced temporarily or permanently by one other rider. In the event a team fields two entries, their roster will allow five riders provided the same roster is shared by both teams.

    If it becomes apparent during an event that a rider is only using an event for practice and is interfering with the competitive nature of the race, that rider will be black flagged and removed from the event at the discretion of the Track Marshal.

    For a complete breakdown of the rules please take a look at your 2015 Rulebook.
