- Red/"P" & "G"........Return to "Pit" or "Grid"

When an Official displays this flag the rider may proceed slowly and cautiously back to the area displayed.
- Standing yellow.......Caution/hazard ahead
- Waving yellow.......Immediate danger ahead (No passing)
When the waving yellow flag is displayed, there is no passing from 100 ft (30 m) ahead of the Flagger until past the incident... violators will be reported to Race Control & that Rider can expect a visit from the Referee.
- Yellow/red stripes....Oil/debris on the track
When there is oil/debris on the track, display the yellow/red striped flag (stationary, not waving) and the Flagger, their assistants, or other Turn Workers where appropriate, will direct the Riders to a safest racing line.
- Yellow/red -triangle pointed up/moving up & down.Rain falling
- Yellow/red pointed at rider.Get off line & stop at next immediate Turn Station
When the yellow/red-striped flag is pointed in a triangle fashion at a rider, it is a signal that he/she has a hazardous condition.
The rider will then immediately get off the race line and stop at the next available turn station.
- Black............Exit track at pits & report to PreGrid (NOT TURN 9)
- White/red cross.....Ambulance on the track
In the event an Ambulance is called onto an active racetrack, the procedure is as follows:
- The Ambulance will travel in the direction of the racecourse only.
- The white/red cross signal will be displayed at the start/finish line.
- As the Ambulance passes from one corner station to the next, the flag will be displayed at each station that the Ambulance had passed to alert riders that the Ambulance is on the track.
- The Ambulance will keep to the inside of the track at all times until it arrives at the scene of the accident.
- When the ambulance arrives at the scene of the accident, the Driver will clearly signal his or her intentions.
- Riders may pass the ambulance on the outside of the track and only one (1) abreast at a VERY reduced speed.
- Corner workers will be instructed to report to the control tower the number(s) of the motorcycle or motorcycles that pass inside the ambulance, at racing speeds or more than one abreast.
- At the discretion of the Referee, Riders who do not observe this rule will be disqualified from the day's racing activities. Ambulance personnel will be advised of this procedure prior to each day's event.
- Competitors will be advised of this procedure at every rider's meeting prior to each day's event.
- A practice session or a grid qualifying heat will be red flagged before an Ambulance is brought onto the track.
- Note: Currently the black flags are at Turn 4, Turn 9, and Start. The Finish line and flag are at Turn 9.
