I. ABC RACE PROCEDURES:
a) Qualifying:Each driver will qualify to determine their bracket. Brackets typically will be split by separation in times and do not have equal number of cars. The split between A and B divisions will be determined by the largest gap between qualifying times of mid pack cars. (see Section 4 of Track Rules & Procedures for additional qualifying and race procedures).
b) Non-Qualifiers and Scratches:
Every driver must have a base time to be eligible to compete in any feature event. Their base time will be established through qualifying. In the event the driver scratches their base time or doesn’t qualify, their base time will be determined by their best lap in a heat race.
Scratches when there are no Heats will typically be moved to the back of the faster division unless there is a likelyhood of to large of a gap in times. In that event they will start at the rear of the appropriate division as determined by the race director.
Any driver that establishes their base time in a heat race, must start their feature at the rear.
Note… Scratches will receive the minimum qualifying points of 5
Total for all brackets with non-qualifiers and scratches starting behind the fastest times.
