Passing Points Procedure

Passing Points

In addition to the finishing points,   each driver will earn 1 1/2 points for every position he or she advances in   the heat event from his or her initial starting position determined by the   pill draw when he or she signs in. The line-up will be official when the pill   draw closes. Any car arriving late (after pill draw closes) will start in the   back of a heat race and will earn position points only, no additional points   for advancing positions will be awarded. All cars moving onto the track from   the staging area will be considered to have started the race. All cars not   starting the race will receive points equal to last place qualifying points.   All cars that scratch or drop out prior to the initial green flag after the   line-ups are official, or drop out during the race will be considered passed   cars. Any driver that would scratch or drop to the rear of the field with the   intent of assisting another driver in gaining points is subject to   disqualification.

In the event   that two or more cars finish with a tie in qualifying passing points, the tie   will be broken by the driver who earned the points first.

If fewer than 24   cars sign in, the remainder of the feature will be set by the total points   scored in the heat races with the 10th highest total points scored starting   10th and so on until the field is set.

If more than 24   cars are present, 10th thru 18th will be set by total points scored in the   heat races, the final 6 positions will come from the top 6 finishers from the   semi feature, heads up the way they finished the semi feature. The semi   feature(s) is lined up by the total points scored in the heat races 19th on   the front row and so on.

This is being posted to help explain   the passing point system that will be used by Macon Speedway this season for   the U.M.P. Late Model, & U.M.P. Modified divisions.

This is the type   of lineup system used by many touring series including MARS & WDRL and   others.

NOTE: These   points have nothing to do with the season points for the track championship.   The season championship points will be awarded in the same manner as last   season. These points are only used for each nights lineups!!

The passing   point system is the qualifying method for the U.M.P. Late Models, & UMP   Modifieds at Macon Speedway. Passing points are used to determine the   starting positions, feature and semi-feature events. Passing points are based   on two ways to accumulate points, first each finishing position in the heat   race has an assigned point value which are as follows:
