2017 Northeast Dirt Regional Points Structure

The Fast 5 Region members by club vote have decided to revert back to the National Format.  The Regional Event already held at MCQMRC under what was to be this years format will stand, all points given under that structure will stand for the Regional Standings.

In order to qualify for the Regional Points Series you must race 4 of the 5 events, top 3 scores will count.

You can refer to USAC .25 Rules for the lower mains and points system.  Below are the changes to that format that will apply at all

Fast 5 Regional Events for 2017.

  • NO Courtesy laps in the Heats
  • Once a line up is established, one to go will be given to drivers and no cars can push after the one to go is give.
  • Courtesy laps will be given for lower mains and a mains - Per USAC Rules (legitimate damage that would otherwise not be able to continue - this is not to adjust shocks and tire pressure etc.)
