2013 RMLRA Points

The 2013 season will bring an exciting new point system to the Legends drivers. The season points champion
will be determined by a system similar to what NASCAR does with their “Chase for the Cup”.

To qualify for the RMLRA Shoot‐out, a driver must attend (sign in) at least one race at 3 of the 4 tracks where races are scheduled. A rain‐out is considered attending an event if the driver has signed in and the track calls the event due to weather.

At the end of July, after 15 scheduled race events, the driver’s points will be totaled. The drivers will then
“throw out” one race and the points will be re‐totaled. The top ten drivers at that point will qualify for the
shootout. Drivers will also qualify for the shootout by attending every race event thru the end of July,
regardless of their points standings.

The shootout for the championship will begin with the Aug 3rd race. At that time, the drivers who qualify for
the shootout will start the last eight races with points as follows:
1st place will start with 5000 points, 2nd place with 4998 points, 3rd place with 4996 points, etc. Drivers who do not qualify for the shootout will keep their points as they stand as of Aug 3rd. All drivers will continue to
accumulate points for the last 8 races in the same format as the rest of the season, outlined below. Drivers will be allowed one additional throw‐out race at the end of the shootout (including drivers racing in the shootout), and the driver with the most points will be the champion.

Ties will be broken by the most event wins, then the most 2nd place finishes, 3rd place finishes, etc.

Points for races will be awarded as follows:

Colorado National Speedway
30 sign‐in points (same for rain‐out if driver signs in and track calls the event due to weather), 2 points for last place finish and 2 points for each finish place forward. Winner receives 2 additional points. For example, if 28 cars start the main event, last place finish will receive 32 points, 27th place will receive 34 points, 26th place receives 36 points, etc. The winner would receive 86 points plus 2 bonus points for a total of 88 points.

I‐25 Speedway, Hwy 92 Raceway & Big Country Speedway
75 sign‐in points (same for rain‐out if driver signs in and track calls the event due to weather), 2 points for last place finish and 2 points for each finish place forward. Winner receives 2 additional points. For example, if 17 cars start the main event, last place finish will receive 77 points, 16th place will receive 79 points, 15th place receives 81 points, etc. The winner would receive 109 points plus 2 bonus points for a total of 111 points.

National qualifier races will have points the same as regular races.

If a driver does not qualify into or start a main event, they will only receive sign‐in points for that event. Last
chance races will transfer top 4 cars to the main event.
