2021 POINT SYSTEM

High Point Scoring System

 

SCORING

Racers earn point(s) equal to the number of racers they beat, plus one point. League standings based on the sum of individual race points earned of five (5) total races. Racers competing in more than five races will have their lowest scores thrown out. Racers competing in less than 5 races will still be included in standings.

Example 1
Nine racers started and they all finished. First place beat 8 others, they will receive 9 points (8+1). Second place beat 7 others, they will receive 8 points (7+1). Last place will receive 1 point (0+1).

 

Example 2
Nine racers started and two were scored DNF. First place beat 8 others, they will receive 9 points (8+1). Second place beat 7 others, they will receive 8 points (7+1). The last place that finished will receive 3 points (2+1). The two DNF will receive 1 point each.
