That is for a penalty normally.

The black flag means that the driver getting the flag had broken a rule or has to leave the track to correct a technical problem. Sometimes they'll use the black flag to clear the track too; it depends on the rules of the particular racing authority.

Red flags are rare. They literally mean "stop". You'll see a red flag come out when there's a serious injury and the life flight helicopter needs to land right away, for example.

well i've seen a rather nasty 9-car pileup and rollover mess once during an EMP modified race here, the ambulance and fire came but the entire track was under a orange (caution) flag, and just rolled slowly without any laps or such being recorded during the duration. i suppose in KY dirt-track races there is no red flag.

I spun these off into a new thread in sports so we didn't derail the original to far.
