Transfers to a different Category
Transfers to a different category are allowed, but must take place before the 5th race. No transfers will be allowed after the first Henry's Ridge event. You can request to be transferred to a category by emailing Info@BuDuRacing.com or talking with one of the registration staff members.
We will be awarding medals for First, Second, and Third finishes in each category and division (as appropriate) at each event. You need to pick up your medal, they will not be mailed.
Points are awarded to each finisher in each division and category at the completion of each event and are carried over to the next event. The final event on May 19, will be a stand alone event and not count towards series points, but we will have the series ending podium and ceremony at this event. This way, people can review the results and let BuDu Racing, LLC know ahead of time if there is an issue that needs to be reviewed.
In order to be eligible for season ending prizes, you must participate in 5 of the 7 events. The last event is going to be a stand alone race, with prizes of its own. This will help the series ending awards go more smoothly. If you participate in 7 events or purchase a season pass, you will receive a series bonus of 15 points. Your accumulative series points will be a composite of your top five event finishes plus the series bonus (as applicable). Each participant who starts an event will automatically receive one point. If you want to change categories, you can, but you will need to stay in that category. We have adjusted the series points to stay the same when transferring, as the lower category events have less points. You can not place in the series in more than one category.
Series ending awards will be presented at the final event on May 19. If you are not present to accept your award, it will be your responsibility to make arrangements to receive your award.
Below is the breakdown for placing and points:
|Place||Cat 1 Points||Cat 2 Points||Cat 3 Points||Place||Cat 1 Points||Cat 2 Points||Cat 3 Points|
