Okay, guys; here’s what we have worked up.
There will be a summer series, to run from May through August.
The series will be a combined outdoor asphalt/indoor carpet series; to determine a true Virginia Oval Champion in each of five Classes; Spec Truck; Stock; 21 Turn Limited; and 19-Turn Open; as well as .09 Nitro cars.
The series will be a combined series, in cooperation with Thunder Road and Coopers. Each track will hold one Series Race per month; four races total at each track.
Thunder Road will close one weekend per month; that weekend to coincide with the Series Race at Coopers.
Each competitor will be allowed to drop his worst finish at each track. IOW; only the top three finishes from each track will be counted.
The Virginia Oval Champion, in each Class, will be the racer with the best combined points finishes. The final ranking at each track will be combined; with equal weight given to finishing order at each track.
Points at each race will be awarded as follows: One point for TQ; winner gets one point for each entrant; decreasing by one point per position. If ten racers enter, the winner gets ten points; second, nine points; third, eight points; etc.
This will run as though each track were hosting a separate series; with the finishes combined after the last race, to determine the Champions in each Class. At series end, racers at each track, and in each Class, will be ranked in order; first, second, third, etc. One “series point” will be awarded for first place; two for second; three for third; etc.
The racer with the lowest total combined score, from each track, will be the Virginia Oval Champion in each Class.
Suitable plaques will be awarded for the winner in each Class. Each track will also continue with its normal race payout.
Exact dates for June, July and August are still to be determined; but will be ironed out in the next few days.
The first Virginia Oval Championship Series Race at Coopers will be on May 14th; the first at Thunder Road will be on May 21st.
Thunder Road will be closed on May 14th; to allow its racers to compete in the Series Race at Coopers.
Thanks; Ernie P.
