General Rules

All racers will qualify; 30 Sec laps and segments. Racers will be seeded into mains with the 8 fastest in the A and so on. All Mains will be scored separately. Final finishing order will be determined by total laps completed. Racers in the A Main will marshal for the B Main and vice versa. If racers can’t marshal for whatever reason, they are responsible for finding their own replacement marshal subject to the approval of the race director. All racers will be available to turn marshal if not racing. The top 5 finishing cars in each race will face a postrace tech inspection after which, winners will be declared and payouts will be awarded.
