Courses will have a start line and a finish line. Each course will have boundaries. Each course will be marked into 3 sectors. Each sector has a point value. Sector One – 1 point, Sector Two – 2 points, & Sector 3 – 3 points. A driver that crosses the finish line completing a course, will earn 4 points. There may be a bonus section(s) for a driver to earn an extra point on one or more of the courses. All Bonus sections will be marked & have a 1 point value. A course may have gates that a driver must drive thru. Each gate hit will be a 1 point deduction for that course. Missing a gate will end the run for that course and the driver will earn the points for that sector, minus 1 penalty.
