Super Late Model riders will be doing hot laps / qualifying each day to determine their rosters for the qualifying races. The eligible order will be determined by lot. Qualifying races will be aligned directly with the number of qualifying race transfers determined by the number of qualifying races. Non-transfer cars from playoff races will work with b-hands, the number of feature transfer cars being determined by the number of b-hands. The winners of the qualifying race will be redesigned for the starting position of the feature. The remainder of the peloton will be aligned head-to-head by heat / b-main transfer order.
Modifieds and X-Mods will use the waypoint format. The drivers will draw their respective qualifying races at random and then earn passing points at these events. The top 16 total waypoints in each division will be transferred directly to their featured event and will be lined up one-on-one by waypoint total.
The winners of the qualifying race will also automatically transfer to the night function, which means that if a winner of the qualifying race does not make it into the overall top 16, he will knock someone over and be transferred to the top 16. main event. The balance of each line-up will be determined by B-Mains.
All features will start 24 cars.
There is a large free campsite on site. Dozens of fans and teams from across North America camp out on the track each year to enjoy the great race and the beautiful weather. Please note that there are no camping hookups on the trail. Campsites are available on a first come, first served basis.
