USAC NOS ENERGY DRINK MIDGET NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP FORMAT
Formats may be altered from base formats listed here at the discretion of the chief steward
All cars draw for heat race position & hot-lap with their heat race. Two heat races will hot-lap together (heats 1-2, heats 3-4, heats 5-6, heats 7-8).
Heat races are 10 laps.
Lineups are determined by random draw.
Points are accumulated by finishing position and total number of positions gained or lost.
(see chart below to calculate points)
The top 40 in overall points from the heats will run qualifying races. The rest of the field is relegated to c mains.
All cars 41st and worst in points run C Main lined up by points earned in heat races.
If 2 C Mains are needed, odd-position cars go to 1st C Main & even-position cars go to 2nd C Main.
4 overall cars will transfer from C Mains to the back of B Mains (Top 2 from each C Main if there are 2).
40 cars make the qualifying races, which are 12 laps & award more finish/passing points.
The 4 qualifying races are inverted by 6, so the top point-earner from the heat races starts 6th.
Total points from heat races & qualifying races are added together to set b main & feature lineups.
The top-12 overall will start straight-up in the first 6 rows of the feature.
13-40 in points are assigned to 2 b main events.
There will be 2 B mains. Each are 15 laps. 16 cars scheduled in each.
They are lined up according to points with C main transfers starting at the back.
Each race transfers 4 cars to the back of the night’s feature event.
Transfers from 1st B main take the inside row in feature (13-15-17-19) & 2nd B main transfers take the outside row (14-16-18-20).
