  • Points will be awarded in the following manner:

  1. By signing up for points by the first point's day you receive 1 bonus point

  2. By staging your car in the first round of eliminations you receive 1 point

  3. For each round you win during eliminations you receive 1 point

  4. "Drop Two Races" in effect: Your best 6 of 8 races will count for points standings
    - Drop your worst two races (including zeros, no shows, etc.)
    - This will be adjusted at the end of the season by Raceway Park
    - Rating points that start after week #5 will not drop

  5. Ties are decided by:

    • Number of Eliminator wins
    • The rating point system will be in effect *
    • Ties that need to be run-off will be run on the last day of points, if needed

      - A higher position in the points standings will be determined by whichever driver went further in competition during the prior points event
      - Position may further be determined by better 1st round reaction time if a tie still exists
      - If tie is for position only, a coin toss will be done
    1. * Rating point system:

      - Each driver will be rated according to his/her position in the standings. The rating system will begin after the 5th event as follows: If a racer is in first place, one rating point will be awarded; second place will receive two rating points, third place will receive three rating points, etc. If two or more racers are tied with the same amount of points for any position, they will each receive the same amount of rating points (e.g., tied for fifth = each racer gets five rating points). After ratings start, these numbers will be increased based upon what place the racer is in per race event. This will continue through the end of the points series. On the last points day, if a racer is in seventh place and earns enough points on that day to move him/her into a tie for third place, the racer with the lower rating points will finish the year in third place and the higher rating points racer will be fourth. The only way a runoff will be necessary is if the earned points, number of wins, and rating points are the same. If after the tiebreaker, a result for position has not been determined, a run-off will occur

    - Official points are posted on the Raceway Park website, the Tuesday following each event
