Briggs & Stratton Racing Engines

Program Layout/Points

Points:

Points accumulate based on the first 8 races a racer attends (consecutive races not required but all races attended up to each racer’s first 8 will qualify).

There will be one drop from the first 8 races leaving the best 7 of the 8 races to qualify for points. Additional races attended will not count, only a racers first 8 submitted results.

Racers that do not reach a minimum of 7 races will be scored only on the races they compete.

Tracks that submit the minimum of 7 races or racers only completing 7 races will have all results qualify for points forfeiting the potential drop from completing 8 races.  Tracks can initially submit up to 11 races to account for weather or allow racers missed dates.

  • Both Senior and Masters will be scored separately but combined to compete head-to-head for their respective National championship.
  • Both Junior 1 and Junior 2 classifications will be scored separately but combined to compete head-to-head for one (1) NORTH AMERICAN championship (for the United States and Canada combined).

PLEASE NOTE: MASTERS AND SENIOR POINT SYSTEM WILL BE BASED OFF OF AN 11 KART COUNT AND JUNIORS OFF OF A 10 KART COUNT.

SENIOR/MASTERS POINT SYSTEM:

Points accumulated based on the first 8 races attended (consecutive races not required but all races attended up to 8 will qualify).

There will be one drop from the first 8 races, the best 7 of the 8 races will qualify for points.

Both Senior and Masters will compete head-to-head for one respective National championship.

Championship points are based on the total points accumulated for the season as follows:

Category 1: Quantity of karts participating in the class

  • 1 kart = 1 point
  • 2 karts = 2 points
  • 3 karts = 3 points
  • 4 karts = 4 points
  • 5 karts = 5 points
  • 6 karts = 6 points
  • 7 karts = 7 points
  • 8 karts = 8 points
  • 9 karts = 9 points
  • 10 karts = 10 points
  • 11 karts or more = 11 points

Category 2: Finishing position

  • 1st place = 11 points
  • 2nd place = 10 points
  • 3rd place = 9 points
  • 4th place = 8 points
  • 5th place = 7 points
  • 6th place = 6 points
  • 7th place = 5 points
  • 8th place = 4 points
  • 9th place = 3 points
  • 10th place = 2 points
  • 11th place or above = 1 point

Category 3: Number of karts finished ahead of (maximum = first 11 karts)

  • 10 karts = 10 points
  • 9 karts = 9 points
  • 8 karts = 8 points
  • 7 karts = 7 points
  • 6 karts = 6 points
  • 5 karts = 5 points
  • 4 karts = 4 points
  • 3 karts = 3 points
  • 2 karts = 2 points
  • 1 karts = 1 points
  • All karts after 11th place = 1 point
  • last place kart = 0 points

In a tie breaker is required it will be determined first by total points accumulated in the “finishing position” category. If this does not break the tie then the ‘”karts finished ahead of” category will be used.

Category 4: Pre-final heat win BONUS = .25 points.

In order for racers to qualify for this BONUS, tracks must identify their pre-final heat winner.  Tracks submitting without identifying this will not be eligible to after the 10 day review period allowed from the day of the event has passed.

If a tie breaker is required it will be determined first by total points accumulated in the “finishing position” category. If this does not break the tie then the ACTUAL number of karts finished ahead of will be used.

EXAMPLE: Total SENIOR/MASTERS Points Calculation

Points regarding DNF, DNS, and DQs:

DNF: QUANTITY OF KARTS PARTICIPATING IN THE CLASS = The appropriate number of karts up to 11. FINISHING POSITION = Finishing position and the appropriate points assigned for that position. QUANTITY OF KARTS FINISHED AHEAD OF = 0 points.

DNS: QUANTITY OF KARTS PARTICIPATING IN THE CLASS= The appropriate number of karts up to 11. FINISHING POSITION = 0 point QUANTITY OF KARTS FINISHED AHEAD OF = 0 points.

DQ: QUANTITY OF KARTS PARTICIPATING IN THE CLASS= 0 points FINISHING POSITION = 0 points QUANTITY OF KARTS FINISHED AHEAD OF = 0 points. A DQ CANNOT BE DROPPED FROM YOUR BEST OF 7 SCORING.
