RACING STRUCTURE:

If ten or less sign up in the Pro Men’s class, a traditional, two moto format racing and scoring system will be used. If there are more than ten registered in it, the Pro Men’s class will use qualifying rounds to determine who races in the Pro Men’s Main. The number of qualifying heats and number of riders that transfer will depend on number of entries, and times and results from qualifiers and LCQ’s will determine staging in mains. Pro Mains will be at least 10 minutes in length unless conditions warrant changes. ALL other classes, including Pro Women, will be scored via combined results from two, at least, ten minute motos, unless there are more than 15 riders signed up in a particular class, in which case, scoring via qualifiers and main events will be used. The maximum number of riders on the track at one time, or going to a main event is 15. If there are more than 10 in a race, and there is insufficient room for a single row start, a second row will be added and lower ranked riders, or losing draw riders will start there. Qualifying groupings will be determined by random draws.

EXHIBITION CLASS EVENT AWARDS:

Trophies to top three in each trophy class run at each event.
