For the 2015 season we will be changing the way points are earned in the NEMST.
Heats: Winner will get 5 points, with 4, 3, 2, 1, and 1 for every other position will be given.
Features: LAST will earn 1 point. Every position ahead of last will earn 1 additional point per position. Example: 25 car feature, Winner will get 25 points, last will get 1. 20 car feature, Winner will get 20 points, last will get 1.
Feature winner will receive 2 Bonus Points
Sunoco Hard Charger (car who improves starting position the most) will receive 2 Bonus Points.
With the growth of the series over the recent seasons we feel this system will provide excellent point battles. This will also make race attendance over the entire season very important.
The previous point system was 80 to win 75 for 2nd, and -3 per position. Heats awarded 17 points for a win, 15 for 2nd, and -1 per position.
Please provide feedback on the new points system.
