How It Works

City Chevrolet League Championship Series:

Each track will host as many weekly events as they choose. NDRA Member Drivers can accumulate points for the 2012 City Chevrolet League Championship Series at any NDRA sanctioned track. The top 14 finishes will be taken into consideration for the 2012 LCS standings. The NDRA will use the points system below. Bonus points will be given to each driver for the number of cars that attempt to qualify with the maximum number of bonus points for one event being capped at 12. Road Show Touring Races will NOT count towards the League Championship Series. In addition, League Championship Series points cannot be earned on nights when Road Show events are being help at other facilities. Drivers can start accumulating points beginning March 1, 2012 and the League Championship Series will officially end on September 3, 2012. The League Championship Series Payout will be as follows:

 

1st $5,000 11th $500
2nd $3,000 12th $450
3rd $2,000 13th $400
4th $1,500 14th $350
5th $1,200 15th $325
6th $1,000 16th $300
7th $900 17th $275
8th $800 18th $250
9th $700 19th $230
10th $600 20th $220


Heintz Performance Presents: The Road Show

Each NDRA member track has the option of hosting a Road Show event. This will give each and every NDRA member track the opportunity to showcase its facility. When we have a Road Show event, other tracks retain the right to run NDRA GM Performance Late Models. However, if a weekly event occurs the same night as a Road Show event, no points will be taken into consideration for the LCS. This will allow racers to support both The Road Show and The LCS simultaneously. This structure is fair for everyone involved. Drivers must participate in 75% of the Road Show events to be eligible for the Championship Points purse. In addition, should the entire Road Show schedule not be completed, the Championship Points Purse will be restructured accordingly.

The NDRA and Goodyear Present: Dirt Wars 2012

After the completion of the League Championship Series and Road Show the NDRA will begin Dirt Wars 2012. Dirt Wars 2012 will be a three (3) race playoff for the series championship. In order to qualify for these races, a driver must accumulate 14 POINTS. Each weekly/local race at an NDRA member track is worth one (1) point and each Road Show (touring) race is worth one (1) point. Only the drivers that have accumulated 14 POINTS between March 1, 2012 and September 3, 2012 are eligible to compete in these championship races. The 2010 NDRA Championship Points Fund, currently valued at over $30,000, will pay a minimum of 15 positions and consist of a variety of awards and prizes. The NDRA is currently negotiating with potential marketing partners that may lead to additional awards. We will post detailed payouts at that time.

NDRA Master Points System For LCS, Road Show, & Dirt Wars 2012

The League Championship Series, Road Show, & Dirt Wars will all be scored by the points system listed below. The series will keep track of these points. We will use the official reports from the weekly tracks to calculate the points for The League Championship Series. Shortly after receiving these reports, the series will compile the information, update the standings, and make the information available to the racers and tracks. The NDRA will also follow the same process for The Road Show and Dirt Wars 2012.

FAQ:

Q: - If there is a NDRA Series event can I still run my GM Performance LMs?

A: - (YES) You can run GM Performance Late Models at your track but it will not be a NDRA points event and we ask you dont raise your purse for that nights event. This allows any of YOUR race teams that want to travel to a regional event the opportunity to do so without being penalized for missing a event. Some teams like to travel and some dont, this system is fair for both.

Q: - How many Series races will there be?

A: - The Series has scheduled one Road Show event at each of the 8 member tracks. With 5 Saturday night tracks and 3 Friday night tracks, the series has a good mixture which gives our race teams a good balance of local and touring races.

Q: - How is NDRA going to tech the engines?

A: - The NDRA will accept seals from other sanctioning bodies for 2010. No engines with RM bolts will be accepted or approved. For the weekly events, it is going to be up to the tracks to police this for themselves. At the Road Show and Dirt Wars events, NDRA officials will be present to oversee all technical inspections. We are going to set up a a seminar for all the tech officials to be properly coached on how to tech one of these engines.
