Race Format

Every time racers hit the track on their qualifying and preliminary night, they will earn Qualifying Points. For all races, a driver must attempt to run the race to get points.

Qualifying Night

Racers will get practice time (specific amount to be determined) before qualifying begins.

Qualifying – 400 points are awarded for quick time, 399 for 2nd, 398 for 3rd, 397 for 4th, 396 for 5th, etc.

Odd positions (1, 3, 5, 7, etc.) will race on the Thursday preliminary night. Even positions (2, 4, 6, 8, etc.) will race on the Friday preliminary night.

Preliminary Nights

Heat races will be lined up by qualifying with an invert of 6-8 cars (determined by overall car count and number of heats). Passing points will determine the lineup for the mains and be added to the Qualifying Points total.

Heat Races – 200 points will be awarded to the heat race winner, 197 for 2nd, 194 for 3rd, 191 for 4th, 188 for 5th, etc.
2.5 points are added for each car passed compared to official starting position. Full passing points chart will be released for anyone to easily calculate.
