HOW POINTS ARE
25 points are
awarded upon pre-entering and
competing in a race.
In the qualifying
race, points are only awarded to the
top 3. No other positions
receive qualifying points.
These points are awarded as:
1st - 15 points, 2nd - 10 points,
3rd - 5 points.
5 points are
awarded to any official lap leader.
points are awarded to the leader of
the most laps.
250 points are awarded upon entering
and competing in each pre-designated
5 - race leg of overall schedule.
In other words, if you compete in
the first 5 races, then you will
receive the 250 point bonus at the
conclusion of the 5-race leg.
If, for any reason, you miss 1 or
more of the 5, then you would not
receive the 250 point bonus.
The same would be true of the 2nd 5
- race leg and so on. If the
sum of events in any given year does
not add up in factors of 5, the 250
point bonus will also be awarded for
the remaining races. As in the
case of the 2002 season (22 races)
drivers must compete in the final 2
events to pick up the 250-point
bonus. Why the bonus points?
It can encourage, from time to time,
points: Points begin at
200 for 1st place and fall in
5-point increments each position:
1st - 200 points, 2nd - 195 points,
3rd - 190 points, 4th - 185 points,
5th - 180 points and so on down to
