USAC AMSOIL SPRINT CAR NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP FORMAT

Formats may be altered from base formats listed here at the discretion of the chief steward.  If Thursday’s or Friday’s events are canceled, Saturday night’s event will revert to the standard format.

 

QUALIFICATIONS

No qualifications will be held.

 

POINTS

Over the first two nights, total points will be calculated, which will “lock-in” the top-five in total combined points into Saturday night’s feature event.

 

QUALIFYING RACES

3 qualifying races, each 10 laps in length, lined up “straight-up” based on each driver’s best single points night.  The lineup will snake with the driver possessing the 6th best single points night on the pole of the first qualifying race, 7th will be on the pole for the second qualifying race and 8th starting from the pole position in the third qualifying race, and so on.

The top-4 finishers from each qualifying race will transfer to the feature.  Those finishing 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th or 9th in each qualifying race will be placed into the semi-feature.  Those finishing 10th on back in each qualifying race will be placed into an 8-lap C-Main, if needed, where the top-4 finishers will transfer to the semi-feature and occupy the final four starting positions of that race.

 

DASH

The winning drivers of each qualifying race will transfer into an eight-car dash along with the top-five locked in drivers.  Locked-in drivers will draw for starting positions one through five followed by qualifying race winners drawing for positions six through eight when they stop for their winner’s interview.  The finish of the four-lap dash will determine the first four rows of the feature.

 

C-MAIN

Those finishing 10th on back in each qualifying race will be placed into an 8-lap C-Main, if needed, where the top-4 finishers will transfer to the semi-feature and occupy the final 4 starting positions of that race.

 

SEMI-FEATURE:

Those finishing 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th or 9th in each qualifying race will be placed into the semi-feature.  The top-5 finishers from the 12-lap semi-feature will transfer into the night’s feature, filling the final five positions in the feature starting lineup.

 

FEATURE:

Saturday’s feature will consist of 22 cars (not counting up to two provisionals) and 35 laps, as determined by the finishing order of the dash – 1st place finisher starts 1st, 2nd place finisher starts 2nd and so on.
