Elma, N.Y. – The qualifying race point system for all Race of Champions Series events has been changed effective immediately.
Qualifying race winners will receive 15 points; second will receive 10; third-place finishers will receive eight; fourth-place finishers will receive five; fifth-place finishers will receive three.
(Editor's Note: Previously, the system awarded 15 points to the winner, five points to second and three points to third-place finishers.)
The overall fast-time award in group qualifying will still receive five bonus points. The feature race point system will remain as it has since the 2016 season.
The Race of Champions is a sanctioning body presenting Modified and Stock Car racing on asphalt and dirt surfaces throughout the Northeast, with events in New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey with primary marketing partners Hoosier Racing Tire, VP Racing Fuels, US Army, Upstate Automotive Group, Waddell Communications, Pilat Graphic Design, TDH Refrigeration, Sherwood Racing Wheels, PavedTrackDigest.com, Wilbert’s U-Pull It and Speed51.com. The 69th annual Race of Champions weekend will take place in 2019 at Lake Erie Speedway in North East, Pennsylvania and is the second longest consecutive auto-racing event in North America, second only to the Indianapolis 500.
