Heat races will be divided between odd and even based on qualifying. 1st, 3rd, 5th… in one heat, and 2nd, 4th and 6th… in the other heat. We will do a complete invert and award a single passing point per car based on qualifying position. Mains will be a complete invert and award a single passing point per car based on qualifying position. The first stinger race (3/29) will not have passing points for the heat race as there wasn’t a full invert.
