MMA Points Awarded for all Events

Each race:

 

      Place Points

1st 10            6th 5

2nd 9             7th 4

3rd 8              8th 3

4th 7              9th 2

5th 6              10th 1

 

• Every racer from 10th to last place will receive 1 point for showing up and paying entry fees.

• For Pro, Mod, and Open: points will be awarded to driver by vehicle. Example: John Smith – Mud Duck and John Smith – Dirt Doctor.

 

• Time ties in Open class will use the second time to break the tie and assign placing and points for the day. Ties may still exist in other classes.

 

• Depending on the number of races for the year, the top 80% of a drivers’ finishes will be used for calculating the points championships. In the event of a first place tie, we will look at the number of first place finishes from the season to determine first and second place. If a tie still exists, we will then look at the number of second place finishes from the season to determine first and second place. We will continue this until only one racer is in first place. This rule to eliminate end-of-year ties will apply to all places in the class.

 

Race Day Rules

• Street, Open Street, and Super: One entry per driver per class.

• Pro, Mod, and Open: Maximum of 2 entries per class per driver - no vehicle allowed more than two passes per class. (Open – no vehicle allowed more than four passes per class).

Running position must be determined before the driver’s meeting. The wild card chip will not be available after the driver’s meeting. Drivers with a broken down vehicle that are taking their pass out of running order will have to go before the wild card driver if there is one and the wild card driver chose to run in the ‘last’ position.

The Rules Committee has the authority to accept or reject any protest request. A protest will not be accepted if the protestor is under any influence of alcohol. Members of the Rules Committee do not vote on a protest on their own vehicle or a vehicle in their own class if in competition that day. Protests can include fuel and vacuum. Random internal inspections found to be legal will receive $250.

SPIRIT OF THE RULE

 

Although every effort has been directed towards complete, understandable, and correct rules, no one can possibly anticipate every situation or interpretation. With this in mind, we must refer to THE SPIRIT OF THE RULE. This means very simply, the intent of every rule and classification. Additional adjustments, alterations, modifications, and/or replacements not covered by written rules should not be assumed to be legal under SPIRIT OF THE RULE.

 

SPIRIT OF THE RULE will be the final criteria by which rules will be interpreted and enforced.

 

Call your Rules Committee Representative about any questionable modifications. We want to help get you in the class you want to be in.

 

Let’s have a great 2017 season!
