next six positions in the Saturday finale will be locked in by the top six drivers in points (from Thursday or Friday points). The balance of the cars in each
division will go directly into two B-features (and possibly C-features). A total of 10 cars total will advance from the B-features to the A-feature. Nightly heat
races will be draw for position with finishing position and passing points being awarded. There is no penalty whatsoever for racing both Thursday and
Friday night.

-Electronic timing and scoring will be used for all divisions. A one-time $25 transponder rental fee is due at sign in. This will ensure all teams being scored
to the best that is possible, along with having live lineups and results quickly available for all of the teams and fans to keep tabs on their smart phones
