In 2017, Drivers can race in any Region and be awarded National Points. The points will be awarded by the Drivers' Region of Record, which is determined by his address. The number of points that will be awarded will be determined by the number cars that start the race, and the number of eligible races a Driver can gain National points in, is determined by the number of PASCAR Memberships that are registered in the Drivers' Region of record by March 1, 2017. For example, if you are a Driver that lives in the Sunshine Region and there were 10 Drivers registered in the Sunshine Region by March 1st, then you are eligible to use your best 14 races for National points, and will be awarded points according to your finish in the race at whatever Regional
race you race in.
For less than 5 cars, the number of points awarded will be by the following formula:
Number of Cars Starting x Point awarded above by place
For example, four cars start the race, the winner would be awarded,( 4/5 x 60 ) - 48 points
the second place finisher would be awarded, ( 4/5 x 50 ) - 40 points
This formula will carry on by finishing position until all the starters are awarded points.
This rule change will be retroactive to all previously contested Regional races in the 2015 Season
The number of Drivers registered in each Region by March 1, 2017 will be used to determine the number of Regional Races a Driver is eligible for National Points. The number of Races to be eligible for National Points is the following:
Points Bracket < 5 20 Regional Races First and Last race worth 80 points
Points Bracket 5 - 9 - 16 Regional Races First and Last race worth 80 points
Points Bracket 10 – 14 Regional Races First and Last race worth 80 points
Points Bracket 11 -15 - 12 Regional Races First and last race worth 100 points
Points Bracket 15 or more – 10 Regional Races
The number of National Point eligible races in each Region will remain fixed with Points awarded to that number for the entire Season regardless of how many additional cars are added during the Season to the Region.
Double Points Races can be scheduled as needed to make up for rain outs or deficits in the number of eligible race deficits.
Drivers do not have to race in their Regions to gain National Points. They will be awarded points based upon their Region of Record, and the number of
PASCAR Memberships registered in their Region by March 1, 2017.
