Sportsman & DIRTcar UMP/A.A.R.A. Pro 4 Stock divisions to determine A-Main and B-Main(if necessary) lineups.
NOTE: These points have nothing to do with the season points for the track championship. The passing points are only used for lineups!!
In addition to the finishing points, each driver will earn 5 points for every position he or she advances or lose 1 1/2 points for every position he or she loses in the heat event from his or her initial starting position determined by the pill draw when he or she signs in. The line-up will be official when the pill draw closes. Any car arriving late (after pill draw closes) will start in the back of a heat race and will earn position points only, no additional points for advancing positions will be awarded. All cars moving onto the track from the staging area will be considered to have started the race. All cars not starting the race will receive points equal to last place qualifying points. All cars that scratch or drop out prior to the initial green flag after the line-ups are official, or drop out during the race will be considered passed cars. Any driver that would scratch or drop to the rear of the field with the intent of assisting another driver in gaining points is subject to disqualification.
In the event that two or more cars finish with a tie in qualifying passing points, the tie will be broken by the driver who earned the points first.
