**JUNIOR DIVISIONS NOTE: We feel strongly that the four separate youth divisions were deliberately established to help nurture junior's skills as they progress through the ranks towards the senior divisions.

- Borderline aged drivers may elect to "run up" a division at any point during The Series 2019. However, once said driver has moved up a division, they may not move back down under any circumstances.

- "Borderline aged" is defined as any driver under the minimum age as of January 1st, 2019, but who will turn the minimum age at any point before December 31st, 2019.

**NOTE: All Junior and D-League Drivers competing in any 2019 The Series event will be required to submit a copy of their birth certificate at race #1 which will be kept on file by The Series. Please plan accordingly. No exceptions.

Amateur Eligibility

- Amateur entrants may not have won a past championship in any series
- Amateur entrants may not have won over $750 in a single event
- Amateur entrants may not enter any other "Pro" or "Elite" classes
**Junior winnings and championships do not count against Amateur requirements.

We ask that our Amateur entrants act with integrity when registering for this division.


The Points
The Series 2019 will be a points championship series. Championships will be awarded in the following divisions:

Junior 1
Junior 2
Junior 3
Predator
Amateur
D-League
Super Heavy
Stock


There are five scheduled The Series events with two classes per points championship division (except Predator) at each event. Each of the aforementioned divisions (except Predator) will gather points from BOTH classes offered at each event. For example, drivers competing for the championship in the Stock division will earn cumulative points in BOTH Stock Prelim and Pro Stock toward the eventual Stock Championship. At the conclusion of The Carolina Cup, drivers will have earned ten points finishes to put toward their championship bid. Each driver will then be allowed to drop their two worst finishes, counting only their best eight out of ten.

The Predator division will count their best four out of five finishes.

The following points scale and tiebreakers will be utilized in all of our championship points divisions:

1st - 50 points
2nd - 48 points
3rd - 47 points
4th - 46 points
5th - 45 points
6th - 44 points
7th - 43 points
8th - 42 points
9th - 41 points
10th - 40 points
11th - 39 points
12th - 38 points
13th - 37 points
14th - 36 points
15th - 35 points
16th - 34 points
17th - 33 points
18th - 32 points
19th - 31 points
20th - 30 points
21st - 29 points
22nd - 28 points
23rd - 27 points
24th - 26 points
25th - 25 points
26th - 24 points
27th - 23 points
28th - 22 points
29th - 21 points
30th - 20 points
(if there are B Mains, point distribution will continue on in that manner until they reach zero)

**Bonus Points will be awarded in the following categories:
- Perfect Attendance Award (attending all five The Series events) = 3 Bonus Points
- Pole Award (in applicable divisions) = 1 Bonus Point
- Heat Race Win (in applicable divisions) = 1 Bonus Point

**Tiebreakers will be used if necessary. We will start at Tiebreaker #1 and continue on as needed until the tie has been broken. Stats for tiebreakers are only to be gathered from within the division in question (not the driver's overall stats within The Series):
- Tiebreaker #1: Most main event wins
- Tiebreaker #2: Most bonus points earned
- Tiebreaker #3: Better average main event finishing position
- Tiebreaker #4: Better average qualifying position

This year, we will host our inaugural Victory Lane - Night of Champions in Charlotte, North Carolina, where we will honor our top three finishers in each championship points division with awards and prizes! Date TBA...


This purse is 100% guaranteed. It's our hope that racers will rally to support this event so that we can continue to offer this incredible program with low fees and high, guaranteed payouts! Season sponsorship packages, pre-entry form, and non-sponsor reserved parking forms will be released in the next 24 hours.

Thank you for your interest in The Series, we look forward to welcoming you to #thenewstandard!
