Each class other then Novice will need to have a minimum of 5 cars to race that day….in the event that a class has less than 5 cars for the day it will be up to the race directors judgment to allow the racers to race but there will be no points awarded for that class on that day.

Awards to be given out based on turn out for the entire series…..
Example if a class averages 5-9 entries per race then there will be awards for the top 3…..if a class averages 10-19 entries there will be awards for the Top 5…..if a class averages 20+ entries per race then there will be awards for the Top 10 in points.

Will be the standard format of 100, 99, 98 etc point system with 1 bonus point each race for the TQ of the class.
There will be 5 total races with 1 race(your lowest number) being your throw out
We will use the best 4 of the 5 races to count towards the overall point total with that throw out total being your tie breaker.

The only class these points will not be the same for will be for Trans AM…..This year the Hurricane All-Star Carpet Series will be run in conjunction with the USVTA Great Lakes Series. The USVTA GLS will have 7 total races with 5 races counting towards its point’s total. There will be two races in addition to the 5 regular Hurricane Series races ...1 additional race in November and 1 in January. The last USVTA GLS race will be the last All-Star Carpet Series race so awards will be handed out then. This also gives everyone in Trans AM an opportunity to make up a bad performance or a missed date at one of the additional races.

Rules and Dates are subject to change....
