10 laps. The 15th through 28th fastest cars in qualifying that did not transfer through the heat races will line up straight-up in the C-Main.  Top-4 finishers will start in the last two rows of the semi-feature based on their finishing order in the C-Main.

 

SEMI-FEATURE:

12 laps. The 14 fastest cars in qualifying that did not transfer through the heat races will line up straight-up in the semi-feature event. Finishers 1-6 earn a spot in the feature event if 4 heats were held. Finishers 1-7 earn a spot in the feature event if 3 heats were held.

 

FEATURE:

30 laps. Starting positions determined by qualifying time, 6 fastest at the front, with the 6 fastest qualifiers who transferred through their heat races inverted by their qualifying time in the first three rows, positions 1-6.  If a heat race winner is not in the top-6 inversion, that driver will line up directly behind the six-car invert, based on their qualifying time, followed by the balance of the field based on qualifying time. 22 starting cars (not including earned provisionals).
