    Yellow Flag: Proceed with heightened caution.
    Blue Flag: "There's a race, you're not in it" is the common mantra of the recipient of this flag. The rider is often being lapped by the leaders, and should be mindful and respect them. Failure to heed the Blue Flag could result in being "Black Flagged."
    Black Flag: There is a problem with the vehicle (smoking, losing parts, etc.) or maybe the rider forgot to strap their helmet. Behavioral problems, like crashing into someone can lead to being "Black Flagged"
    Red Flag: The red flag signals that there is a significant problem on the track, and the race needs to stop.
    White and Checkered Rolled and Crossed: Race is halfway complete.
    White Flag: One lap remaining.
    Checkered Flag: Race is over.
    Most of all HAVE FUN!!!
