Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series
Championship Points Reset After East Bay
Scott Bloomquist Now Leads The Way
Series PR Report
Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series officials have reset and finalized the 2010 Championship Points after the three events at East Bay Raceway Park in Tampa, FL.
After East Bay, series officials reset the Championship Points Standings so that it only counts as one race. By doing this, it gives all the drivers a fair shot at trying to claim the 2010 Championship Points Title at the end of the year.
How the reset works is that drivers stay in the order they earned as if we had not reset the points. First through tenth place were reset and received points as if they have raced only a single event. Drivers earned eleventh place in points if they raced in all three feature events that were contested as point earning events. In twelfth place are drivers who raced in two feature events during any of the three point's events. Thirteenth place are the drivers who raced in one feature event on any of the three point's events.
Any driver making an attempt to race all three points nights but did not advance to the feature received 14th place points. All drivers making an attempt to race in two of the three point's nights, but did not advance to the feature received 15th place points. Finally, all drivers making an attempt at only one of the three points nights, but did not advance to the feature received 16th place points.
"I want to thank our staff for the great job they did keeping up with the registration of 6 straight races including the double show on Saturday. This can become a little hairy at times keeping up with all the teams coming and going. Some teams are registering for shows in advance and someone will withdraw and may want to register for a later event, the list goes on and on," states Ritchie Lewis, Series Director.
The 1st points posting on www.lucasdirt.com after East Bay was sorted by the excel program in use by alphabetical order instead of by the earned position order we now have posted.
