Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    On a course without Boundary Markers drivers are restricted to how far they can drive between gates.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    On a course without Boundary Markers, drivers are not restricted to how far they can drive between gates. This means that they have the freedom to drive as far as they want without any limitations or restrictions. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    During an attempt of the course the judge suspects that the vehicle's wheelbase looks too long.

    • A.

      Warn the driver to check their wheelbase prior to attempting any additional courses.

    • B.

      Stop time, asks the driver to stop, mark the vehicle's location and tech the vehicle.

    • C.

      Allow the driver to complete their attempt of the course and perform a tech inspection afterwards.

    Correct Answer
    B. Stop time, asks the driver to stop, mark the vehicle's location and tech the vehicle.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to stop time, ask the driver to stop, mark the vehicle's location, and tech the vehicle. This is the appropriate action to take when the judge suspects that the vehicle's wheelbase looks too long. By stopping time and asking the driver to stop, the judge ensures that the vehicle's position is marked accurately for further inspection. Tech inspection can then be performed to verify the vehicle's wheelbase and address any concerns.

    Three tires clear gate 7 cleanly, but the last tire touches a marker as it exits the gate. At the point of contact the back of the tire is still in line with the markers, but the wheel nut is past. This penalty points out the driver for the course. What is the driver's final score for this course?

    • A.

      +26 because the axle nut is past the markers

    • B.

      +26 because one tire from each axle cleared the gate.

    • C.

      +28 because the entire vehicle has not cleared the gate.

    Correct Answer
    C. +28 because the entire vehicle has not cleared the gate.
    Explanation
    Progress is not awarded until gate is completed.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    You are judging a course that has boundary markers. One of the boundary markers is unable to sit flush on the rocks and is sitting 10" in the air and has a chalk line under it. A driver comes up to that area and their tire goes under the boundary and touches the chalk line. What is the call?

    • A.

      Call a boundary marker (10 point) and move the vehicle to the last gate cleared.

    • B.

      Say nothing and allow the driver to continue, as the driver did not hit the boundary

    • C.

      Call a boundary marker (10 point) and allow the driver to continue

    Correct Answer
    A. Call a boundary marker (10 point) and move the vehicle to the last gate cleared.
    Explanation
    Boundary Markers must be touched.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Driver can start the course in reverse, and drive the entire course in reverse without penalty.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    1.2 - Back Up/ Reverse: (1 pt) point is given when a vehicle reverses course after making forward progress.
    Reversing is defined as at any time if any of the tires move the vehicle backward or spin in the reverse direction,
    whether engaged or in freewheel and/or whether intentional or not. Once a reverse penalty is given, no further reverse
    penalty can be given until the vehicle makes forward progress. No penalty is given if the backward movement is part of
    a penalized rollover. If a driver begins a course in reverse, a reverse penalty will occur immediately.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Check ALL of the following that are considered penalties. No other action is implied.

    • A.

      Flip over Gate

    • B.

    • C.

      Gate Float

    • D.

      Reverse Direction

    • E.

      Drive in wrong direction around gates

    • F.

      Tumble through gate

    • G.

      Step on Gate

    • H.

      Drive over foot

    • I.

      Jump over Boundary

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Gate Touch
    D. Reverse Direction
    H. Drive over foot
    Explanation
    The penalties mentioned in the answer are Gate Touch, Reverse Direction, and Drive over foot. These actions are considered penalties in the given context.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    A driver is attempting a climb with enough wheel speed to spin the tires. The vehicle slides backwards while the wheels continue to spin forward.

    • A.

      Call a reverse penalty.

    • B.

      Call no penalty and allow the driver to continue.

    • C.

      Warn the driver on the roll back.

    Correct Answer
    B. Call no penalty and allow the driver to continue.
    Explanation
    In this situation, the driver is attempting a climb with enough wheel speed to spin the tires. However, the vehicle slides backwards while the wheels continue to spin forward. Despite the backward slide, the driver should not be penalized and should be allowed to continue. The reason for this is that the driver is still maintaining control over the vehicle by keeping the wheels spinning forward, indicating that they are actively trying to overcome the obstacle. Therefore, it would be unfair to penalize the driver in this case.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    The vehicle is rolled over and the driver calls for a rollover at that time. The driver keeps the truck on the ground, but the tires are caught under a ledge and needs to slide the truck over less than an inch to cleanly roll it over. What is the correct call?

    • A.

      Yes, the driver put it back on all 4 tires. Give the driver 5 points and allow to continue

    • B.

      No it was not a correct rollover. Time will be stopped and the driver will be called for a reposition (10 points) and placed at the last gate cleared.

    • C.

      No it was not a correct rollover. Time will be stopped and the driver will be charged with a rollover (5 points) and a reposition (10 points).

    Correct Answer
    B. No it was not a correct rollover. Time will be stopped and the driver will be called for a reposition (10 points) and placed at the last gate cleared.
    Explanation
    The correct call is that it was not a correct rollover. The driver will be called for a reposition and will receive a penalty of 10 points. Additionally, their time will be stopped and they will be placed at the last gate cleared.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    A driver is attempting a climb and gets off line. The driver wiggles the steering which causes the vehicle to slide backwards, but the wheels do not spin.

    • A.

      Call a reverse penalty.

    • B.

      Call no penalty and allow the driver to continue.

    • C.

      Warn the driver on the roll back.

    Correct Answer
    B. Call no penalty and allow the driver to continue.
    Explanation
    In this scenario, the driver gets off line while attempting a climb and wiggles the steering, causing the vehicle to slide backwards. However, the wheels do not spin. Since the wheels do not spin, it indicates that the driver did not lose control or violate any rules intentionally. Therefore, calling no penalty and allowing the driver to continue is the appropriate response in this situation.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Driver straddles a gate marker that they had been called for a touch penalty .

    • A.

      Stop time, call a vehicle touch and have the driver reposition the vehicle to the previously progressed gate.

    • B.

      No additional Penalty

    Correct Answer
    B. No additional Penalty
    Explanation
    The driver straddles a gate marker, which means that their vehicle is not properly positioned within the gate. They were called for a touch penalty, which indicates that they made contact with the gate or marker. In order to rectify this, the driver is required to stop the time, have a vehicle touch penalty called, and reposition their vehicle to the previously progressed gate. However, there is no additional penalty imposed for this mistake.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    A vehicle has rolled over and the driver is unable to correct it. A 5 pt rollover is asked for but the vehicle will not stay in position without being wiggled to settle suspension.

    • A.

      Stop time, call a vehicle touch and have the driver reposition the vehicle to the previously progressed gate.

    • B.

      Allow the driver to hold down the vehicle until it can be driven away.

    • C.

      Allow the driver to let the vehicle fall back into the rollover position and continue trying to correct it.

    Correct Answer
    A. Stop time, call a vehicle touch and have the driver reposition the vehicle to the previously progressed gate.
    Explanation
    In this situation, the correct course of action is to stop time, call a vehicle touch, and have the driver reposition the vehicle to the previously progressed gate. This means that the driver should not continue trying to correct the vehicle or hold it down until it can be driven away. Instead, they should reposition the vehicle to the gate it was at before the rollover occurred. This ensures that the vehicle is correctly positioned and allows the driver to continue the task from the correct starting point.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    You are judging a course that has boundary markers. One of the boundary markers is below some of the course. A driver comes up to that area and is able to jump over the boundary and does not hit the marker. What is the call?

    • A.

      Call a boundary marker (10 point) and move the vehicle to the last gate cleared.

    • B.

      Say nothing and allow the driver to continue, as the driver did not hit the boundary marker.

    • C.

      Call a boundary marker (10 point) and allow the driver to continue

    Correct Answer
    B. Say nothing and allow the driver to continue, as the driver did not hit the boundary marker.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to say nothing and allow the driver to continue, as the driver did not hit the boundary marker. This is because the driver successfully jumped over the boundary marker without touching it, so there is no violation or penalty.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    A driver is attempting a vertical climb on gate 6 with zero points thus far. During this time, the vehicle is starting to slip backwards without the tires changing directions. The driver is unfortunate as the vehicle has rolled over when the truck got to the bottom of the climb . The driver wiggles the truck around, and is unable to correct the vehicle then performs a legal rollover recovery. At this time, how many points does the driver have?

    • A.

      1

    • B.

      5

    • C.

      6

    • D.

      11

    Correct Answer
    B. 5
    Explanation
    The driver has 5 points. The question mentions that the driver attempts a vertical climb on gate 6 with zero points. However, the vehicle slips backwards and rolls over at the bottom of the climb. The driver then performs a legal rollover recovery, which earns them 5 points. Therefore, the driver has a total of 5 points.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    A truck is attempting to progress gate 2. During this time, the vehicle has turned sideways and has only gotten the left front and left rear through the gate and is parallel with the gate markers. Should progress be given at this time?  

    • A.

      Yes, as the truck has gotten both tires on one side of the vehicle through the gate markers.

    • B.

      No, the vehicle has not fully cleared the gate for progress to be awarded.

    • C.

      Depends on if I like the driver or not

    Correct Answer
    B. No, the vehicle has not fully cleared the gate for progress to be awarded.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "No, the vehicle has not fully cleared the gate for progress to be awarded." This is because the truck has only gotten the left front and left rear tires through the gate, while the right side of the vehicle is still outside the gate markers. To award progress, the vehicle should fully clear the gate by getting all four tires through the gate markers.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    You are judging a course that has boundary markers. One of the boundary markers is unable to sit flush on the rocks and is sitting 10" in the air and has no chalk lines under it. A driver comes up to that area and their tire goes under the boundary and does not hit the marker. What is the call?

    • A.

      Call a boundary marker (10 point) and move the vehicle to the last gate cleared.

    • B.

      Say nothing and allow the driver to continue, as the driver did not hit the boundary marker.

    • C.

      Call a boundary marker (10 point) and allow the driver to continue.

    Correct Answer
    B. Say nothing and allow the driver to continue, as the driver did not hit the boundary marker.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to say nothing and allow the driver to continue, as the driver did not hit the boundary marker. Although the boundary marker is sitting 10" in the air and does not have chalk lines under it, the driver's tire did not make contact with the marker. Therefore, there is no violation of the boundary rules and the driver should be allowed to continue without any penalty.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    The vehicle is rolled over and the driver calls for a rollover at that time. The driver picks the whole truck up off the ground and puts it back down on its tires. What is the correct call?

    • A.

      Yes, the driver put it back on all 4 tires. Give the driver 5 points and allow to continue

    • B.

      No it was not a correct rollover. Time will be stopped and the driver will be called for a reposition (10 points) and placed at the last gate cleared.

    • C.

      No it was not a correct rollover. Time will be stopped and the driver will be charged with a rollover (5 points) and a reposition (10 points).

    Correct Answer
    B. No it was not a correct rollover. Time will be stopped and the driver will be called for a reposition (10 points) and placed at the last gate cleared.
    Explanation
    The correct call is "No it was not a correct rollover. Time will be stopped and the driver will be called for a reposition (10 points) and placed at the last gate cleared." This is because the driver did not perform a correct rollover by picking up the whole truck off the ground and putting it back on its tires. As a result, the driver will be penalized with a reposition and placed at the last gate cleared.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    When is a gate considered "cleared"?

    • A.

      When the centerline of the wheel has passed the centerline of the gate markers

    • B.

      When the wheels have completely passed the gate markers

    • C.

      When the tires have completely passed the gate markers

    Correct Answer
    C. When the tires have completely passed the gate markers
    Explanation
    A gate is considered "cleared" when the tires of a vehicle have completely passed the gate markers. This means that the entire tire, including the part that makes contact with the ground, needs to be beyond the gate markers for it to be considered cleared. The centerline of the wheel or the wheels of the vehicle passing the centerline of the gate markers does not necessarily indicate that the gate has been cleared.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    A driver is attempting a vertical climb on gate 8 with zero points thus far. During this time, the vehicle is starting to flip backwards. The driver hits reverse to drive it out, but is unfortunate as the vehicle is now rolled over. The driver wiggles the truck around and is unable to correct the vehicle. The driver then completes a Legal Roll Over Recovery. At this time, how many points does the driver have?

    • A.

      1

    • B.

      5

    • C.

      6

    • D.

      11

    Correct Answer
    C. 6
    Explanation
    The driver initially had zero points. However, when the vehicle rolled over, the driver performed a Legal Roll Over Recovery, which is worth 6 points. Therefore, the driver now has a total of 6 points.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    The next gate on a course is at the bottom of a big drop off. Rather than risk falling on to the gate the driver elects to jump his truck through the gate. During the jump attempt he does not touch the gate and successfully gets the front and rear tire from the same side of the truck between the gate markers, but not the opposite side. Whats the CORRECT call?

    • A.

      Broke vertical plane of the gate = 10 point penalty w/ progress

    • B.

      Driver made progress without touching a gate = No penalty w/ progress

    • C.

      Driver didn't get 3 tires through the gate= No penalty w/ No progress

    • D.

      Didn't get 4 tires between the gate markers = 10 point penalty w/ progress

    Correct Answer
    D. Didn't get 4 tires between the gate markers = 10 point penalty w/ progress
    Explanation
    Answer A is incorrect because breaking the vertical plane is not a penalty.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    The driver is attempting a climb at gate 7 when he/she quickly reverses to try and save the vehicle from flipping backwards. The vehicle takes a tumble and touches a live gate marker from 6 and then continues to roll into a boundary marker. How many penalty points should be given?

    • A.

      10

    • B.

      20

    • C.

      11

    • D.

      21

    Correct Answer
    D. 21
    Explanation
    The driver attempted to climb at gate 7 but had to quickly reverse to prevent the vehicle from flipping backwards. During this maneuver, the vehicle touched a live gate marker from 6 and then rolled into a boundary marker. According to the rules, touching a live gate marker incurs a penalty of 10 points, and rolling into a boundary marker results in a penalty of 11 points. Therefore, the total penalty points that should be given is 21.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    A driver clears a gate out of sequence

    • A.

      This disqualifies the driver for the course.

    • B.

      Stop time, call a course direction penalty and have the driver reposition to the previously cleared gate.

    • C.

      Direct the driver to the correct gate and have them complete the out of sequence gate again.

    Correct Answer
    B. Stop time, call a course direction penalty and have the driver reposition to the previously cleared gate.
    Explanation
    If a driver clears a gate out of sequence, it means that they did not follow the correct order of gates. To address this, the correct action is to stop the time, call a course direction penalty, and have the driver reposition to the previously cleared gate. This ensures that the driver is penalized for the mistake and is given the opportunity to correct it by going back to the correct gate. Additionally, directing the driver to the correct gate and having them complete the out of sequence gate again helps to reinforce the correct sequence and ensure fair competition.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    During the attempt of a course the driver's vehicle rolls down a hill and makes contact with a spectator

    • A.

      No penalty, allow the driver to continue.

    • B.

      Stop time, call a vehicle touch and have the driver reposition the vehicle to the previously progressed gate.

    • C.

      If the spectator is also a competitor, give them a 10pt penalty for that course.

    Correct Answer
    A. No penalty, allow the driver to continue.
    Explanation
    If the driver's vehicle rolls down a hill and makes contact with a spectator during a course attempt, the correct answer is to allow the driver to continue without any penalty. This means that the driver will not be penalized for the incident and can proceed with the course. It is important to note that this answer assumes that the spectator is not a competitor in the event. If the spectator is also a competitor, they would receive a 10-point penalty for that course.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    During an attempt of the course the judge suspects that the vehicle's body height looks too low.

    • A.

      Allow the driver to complete their attempt of the course and perform a tech inspection afterwards.

    • B.

      Stop time, asks the driver to stop, mark the vehicle's location and tech the vehicle.

    • C.

      Warn the driver to check their body prior to attempting any additional courses.

    Correct Answer
    B. Stop time, asks the driver to stop, mark the vehicle's location and tech the vehicle.
    Explanation
    If the judge suspects that the vehicle's body height looks too low, the best course of action would be to stop the time, ask the driver to stop, mark the vehicle's location, and perform a tech inspection. This would allow the judge to thoroughly inspect the vehicle and determine if there are any issues with its body height. It is important to address this concern immediately to ensure the safety and fairness of the competition.

    During the attempt of a course the driver's vehicle malfunctions. The driver throws an object at the vehicle striking it,  and the vehicle begins functioning again.

    • A.

      Disqualify the driver for course alteration.

    • B.

      Stop time, call a vehicle touch and have the driver reposition the vehicle to the previously progressed gate.

    • C.

      Tell all spectators that the driver's vehicle is now fair game for everyone to throw rocks at.

    Correct Answer
    A. Disqualify the driver for course alteration.
    Explanation
    Technically the driver didn't touch the vehicle, and it is assumed the vehicle is on course with the object landing near by. The driver NOT given any benefit of doubt since it is considered an intentional act.

    Rate this question:

  • 26. 

    The gate is considered entered when:

    • A.

      The wheel nut breaks the center line between the gate markers.

    • B.

      The wheel nut enters the area between the gate markers

    • C.

      A tire enters the area between the gate markers.

    • D.

      Any part of the vehicle enters the gate.

    Correct Answer
    D. Any part of the vehicle enters the gate.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Any part of the vehicle enters the gate." This means that as long as any part of the vehicle crosses the line between the gate markers, it is considered entered. It does not specifically require the wheel nut to break the center line or enter the area between the gate markers, nor does it require a tire to enter the area. This broader definition allows for any part of the vehicle to count as entering the gate, ensuring that the criteria are met even if specific parts do not meet the other conditions mentioned.

  • 27. 

    The vehicle comes to a stop on an incline and then rolls backwards.

    • A.

      Warn the driver on the rollback.

    • B.

      Call a reverse penalty

    • C.

      No penalty, a free rollback is allowed after the vehicle has progressed one vehicle length.

    Correct Answer
    B. Call a reverse penalty
    Explanation
    In this scenario, the correct answer is to "Call a reverse penalty." This means that when a vehicle comes to a stop on an incline and then rolls backwards, a penalty should be called. Rolling backwards on an incline is generally considered unsafe and can potentially cause accidents or damage to the vehicle. Therefore, a penalty should be imposed to discourage this behavior and ensure the safety of the driver and others on the road.

    During an attempt of a gate the driver gets one of the tires from the front axle between the gates, but floats the other tire outside the gate marker but does not touch it. The driver continues through the gate with both wheels from the rear axle going between the gate markers without touching them. Total of 3 tires between the gate markers.

    • A.

      Award progress with no penalty.

    • B.

      Do not award progress and have the driver reattempt the gate.

    • C.

      Award progress with a gate marker penalty.

    Correct Answer
    C. Award progress with a gate marker penalty.
    Explanation
    Penalty is called because driver DID NOT get 4 tires between the gate markers. Floating a tire is irrelevant.

  • 30. 

    A course has designated boundary markers. While attempting the course the driver accidentally touches the boundary with his/her foot.

    • A.

      Stop time and have the driver reposition their vehicle to the previously progressed gate. +10 point boundary touch penalty.

    • B.

      No call, only the driver's vehicle and not his person are subject to boundary penalties.

    • C.

      Call a boundary touch penalty, +10 points and allow the driver to continue from their current location.

    Correct Answer
    B. No call, only the driver's vehicle and not his person are subject to boundary penalties.
    Explanation
    1.6 - Boundary Marker (10 pts each): Points are given when any part of the vehicle touches a boundary marker.
    Once a boundary marker is touched the judge then will stop time, and the vehicle is then moved back by the driver
    to the previously cleared gate with the rear axle aligned to that gate. If the vehicle cannot be aligned to the gate
    due to course design, the judge will reposition the vehicle to the next stable location after the cleared gate. This
    location will be used for all drivers. A boundary marker will remain "live" for the entire duration of the attempt on
    the course, and should be replaced if moved. Boundary markers are not required in the design of a course.

    A driver is sliding forward downhill. In an attempt to control the slide he uses reverse throttle and spins the tires backwards, but he continues to slide forward making forward progress.

    • A.

      No penalty = Still going forward.

    • B.

      Penalty = tires Changed direction

    • C.

      Give Warning if they continue to slide forward

    Correct Answer
    B. Penalty = tires Changed direction
    Explanation
    The driver is sliding downhill and tries to control the slide by using reverse throttle, causing the tires to spin backwards. However, despite the change in the direction of the tires, the driver continues to slide forward and make forward progress. This suggests that the action of changing the direction of the tires did not have the intended effect of stopping or reversing the slide. Therefore, the answer states that there is a penalty for the tires changing direction.

    Question- A driver is attempting a descent just passed gate 6 with 0 points thus far. During this time, the vehicle tumbles down the hill and hits a boundary marker and then hits a gate marker. What is his score now?

    • A.

      His score is 20 points and the gate marker is dead. You allow the driver to continue.

    • B.

      His score is 20 points and the gate marker is dead. Then he must reposition back to the last gate cleared, resulting in another 10 points and has 30 points overall.

    • C.

      He only has 10 points and must reposition back to the last gate cleared

    Correct Answer
    C. He only has 10 points and must reposition back to the last gate cleared
    Explanation
    The driver's score is only 10 points because hitting the boundary marker and the gate marker incurs 10 penalty points in total. Additionally, the driver must reposition back to the last gate cleared, resulting in another 10 penalty points. Therefore, the driver's score is 10 points and he must reposition back to the last gate cleared.

    • A.

    • B.

      Driver has 20 points due to course direction penalty and hit a gate. Driver returns to gate 3

    • C.

      Driver has 10 points because the truck hit gate 6. Driver returns to gate 3

    • D.

      Driver has 10 points because of course direction penalty. Driver returns to gate 3

    Correct Answer
    D. Driver has 10 points because of course direction penalty. Driver returns to gate 3
    Explanation
    1.12 - Course Direction (10 pts) Gates must be cleared in their intended direction and sequence. Any part of the vehicle entering an un-cleared gate in the wrong direction, or driven through out of sequence will result in a 10 point penalty. The judge will stop time. The vehicle is then moved back by the driver to the previously cleared gate with the rear axle aligned to that gate. If the vehicle cannot be aligned to the gate due to course design, the judge will reposition the vehicle to the next stable location after the cleared gate. This location will be used for all drivers. Once the gate is cleared and awarded progress it can be traveled in any sequence or direction.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The explanation for the answer "False" is that the question states that the driver should be penalized for an additional reverse after reversing an additional 2 feet. However, this is incorrect because the driver has already received a reverse penalty for reversing his vehicle initially. Therefore, there is no need for an additional penalty for reversing another 2 feet.
