Formats may be altered from base formats listed here at the discretion of the chief steward.

 

QUALIFICATIONS

Qualifying is two (2) laps to be run consecutively with the fastest lap counting as the official qualifying time.

(IF MORE THAN 36 CARS) Split Qualifying. Cars in flight one qualify into the first two heat races, while cars in flight two fill the starting positions in the last two heat races.

(IF MORE THAN 50 CARS) Split Qualifying. Top-24 fastest qualifiers in each flight are locked into the heat races (12 cars in each heat). Cars in flight one qualify into the first two heat races, while cars in flight two fill the starting positions in the last two heat races.

 

HEAT RACES

10 laps (8 laps on tracks 3/8-mile in distance or longer)

(IF SPLIT QUALIFYING IS USED) Cars in flight one qualify into the first two heat races, while cars in flight two fill the starting positions of the last two heat races.  Top-6 fastest qualifying cars in each flight are inverted in each heat race. The fastest car in each heat starts 6th, the second fastest car starts 5th and so on.  For the 4th row on back, cars will line up straight up, based on their qualifying times.

Cars finishing in positions 1-4 will transfer to the feature event if four heats are held. Cars finishing 1-5 will transfer if three heats are held.

Cars finishing in positions 5th on back will start in the semi-feature event if 4 heats are held. Cars finishing 6th on back will start in the semi-feature event if 3 heats are held.

 

D-MAIN

(IF MORE THAN 50 CARS) The 29th fastest qualifying car, and on back through the balance of the field, that did not transfer through the heat races will line up straight-up in the D-Main. 10 laps. Top-4 finishers will start in the last two rows of the C-Main based on their finishing order in the D-Main.

 

C-MAIN

(IF MORE THAN 36 CARS) The 15th through 28th fastest cars in qualifying that did not transfer through the heat races will line up straight-up in the C-Main.  10 laps. Top-4 finishers will start in the last two rows of the semi-feature based on their finishing order in the C-Main.

FEATURE:

Starting positions determined by qualifying time, 6 fastest at the front, with the 6 fastest qualifiers who transferred through their heat races inverted by their qualifying time in the first three rows, positions 1-6.  If a heat race winner is not in the top-6 inversion, that driver will line up directly behind the six-car invert, based on their qualifying time, followed by the balance of the field based on qualifying time. 22 starting cars (not including earned provisionals).
