SSS08 Point Systems

A random draw for each class will determine starting line-up positions for the first race of the year. Next heat cars will be lined up with a complete inversion of the field, with the fastest vehicles starting at the back and slowest vehicles at the front. Any driver can elect to start at the back.

Feature race line-ups will be points earned that race day.

If you miss a heat race, you will be placed at the back of the next heat or feature.

If you receive a black flag, you will lose your points for that race.

If you are black flagged, you will be starting at the back of the next race (Heat or Feature).

Upon a caution, you will be lined up according to the last lap completed by the lead lap cars. If involved in the caution but not the cause you will line up in order fired. If you are the cause of the caution and still able to race you will start at the back.

Some or all Features (As required) maybe carried over to the following scheduled race day in order to complete the canceled race day should time and the situation allow.

RESTARTS AFTER CAUTION: Single file restarts will use a marker cone for the start line. The cone position will be placed on the front straight at flag stand. No Passing, gapping, jumping, or Hitting. Any infraction will constitute a Yellow Flag and the offender(s) will be put to the back. Second infraction will result in a black flag.
