How exactly are the driver's points calculated? Here's a brief explanation.
Points are awarded to the driver - not the car number, in each separate class. So if a driver is driving a different car in the same class on any given night, the points will be awarded to him for the season total in that class.
Also, NO points are awarded a driver until the car clears the tech department after each race
Each driver that finishes 1st place thru 4th place in a Heat Race receives the following points in All Classes :
1st Place - 4 points
2nd Place - 3 Points
3rd Place - 2 Points
4th Place - 1 Point
Each driver that starts a Feature Race will receive points based on finishing order in the following manner in All Classes:
1st Place -60 Points
2nd Place -58 Points
3rd Place -56 Points
...and so on, reducing by 2 points for each additional place.
If 24 cars start a feature race, the 24th place car would receive 14 Points using that calculation.
Again, points are NOT AWARDED a driver IF their car does not pass a tech inspection, per the rules in that class, after each race.
