How Points are Earned and Calculated
Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park is now following a similar point structure as several NHRA National and Divisional Event tracks operating within the NHRA’s Summit ET Racing Series. Here are how points will be awarded for the 2020 Summit Racing ET Series at WHPMP.
No Qualifying Points. We have decided to delete the previous qualifying point system. Time trials in ET Bracket Racing only serve two purposes – to test a drivers vehicle prior to eliminations and to determine a potential bye. Qualifying to establish ladders in the Summit ET Racing Series (except for the ET MX division – due to the split tree rules) is established based on round one winners.
10 points for turning in a tech card. A racer in any category will receive 10 points once they purchase a tech card and it is turned into the tower. They are not required to enter the first round to receive these points. HOWEVER – if a racer has their tech card refunded, they VOID their 10 entry points. Racers may request a refund of any table fees PRIOR to the first round and receive a 100% refund.
10 points per round win. Once in eliminations, every round win will provide the driver with 10 points.
2 BONUS points for runner up. As a bonus for reaching the final round, all runner ups will receive 2 bonus points. A driver does NOT have to stage the vehicle in the final to receive these bonus points. As long as they officially advance to the final, they will receive bonus points.
5 BONUS points for winning. Along with the 10 points earned for the round win, each winner will 5 bonus points for winning the event.
Racers will CLAIM points earned at their best 7 races. After Race 8 of the series, the Compulink Points system will search for each driver, and determine which race was their worst points tally. We will then manually verify and remove that worst point entry for each driver. This will provide a final SEASON TOTAL for each category.
*In the event of a tie within the top 20 in points (for those earning a spot to attend the ET Finals), the Track Operations Manager (Ron Conner) has determined a series of criteria for ‘breaking’ ties.
POINTS TIE BREAKERS
First – MOST ROUND WINS
Second – HEAD TO HEAD IN COMPETITION (applicable when two racers are tied)
Third – APPLY TIE BREAKER POINTS
- Winner of a race = 5 tie-breaker points
- Runner up = 3 tie-breaker points
- Semi’s = 2 tie-breaker points
- Quarter’s = 1 tie-breaker points
The driver with most tie-breaker points wins the tiebreaker(s). In the case of multiple ties, the order of finish within the tied group will determine the order of finish.
*TIE BREAKER POINTS WILL NOT COUNT TOWARDS FINAL POINT STANDINGS – MEANING THAT DRIVERS WILL NOT ECLIPSE DRIVERS AHEAD OF THEM. It simply determines the order of final season standings.
