2005 MMRA Road Racing Points System Explained

Point System Explained - MMRA uses a simple, yet effective points system to reward drivers who succeed on the track when faced with tough competition.  Our goal is also to reward drivers who make the commitment to travel, while still giving a local racer a legitimate opportunity to win the overall championship.

In every NASA region where we have PRO Road Racing division members, 5 of the NASA events will be designated as regional qualifier events.  Members can earn points in any regional qualifier race, regardless of the region hosting the event.  MMRA will take the top 5 point finishes for each member, regardless of how many regional qualifier events he/she competed in.  At the end of the season, the racer with the most points from their top 5 races will be the champion.

Basic Point Allocation – The basic MMRA points system awards points based on finishing positions in feature events only.  No points are awarded for pole position, qualifying races, heat races, etc.  The winner receives 40 points.  Each position back receives one less point.  Here’s an example of the top 5:

Car Count Factor – MMRA makes adjustments to the basic points system based on the number of cars in the event with our car count factor.  The car count factor helps equalize points across the country even though some areas have high car counts and some have low car counts.  For races where there are 10 or more cars, there will not be any adjustment.  For every car less than 10 in a race, one point will be deducted from all finishers in that event.  For example, if a racer wins a race with a 13 car field, he will receive 40 points.  If that same racer wins a race with only 6 cars, he will receive 36 points.  Only MMRA PRO Road Racing division members count as cars in the race.  Non members and/or cars that are not Baby Grands in the event will not count as cars for MMRA points.

Tie Breakers - In the event of a tie in the final points standings, the preferred position will be given to the racer with the highest single race point score in their 5 regional qualifier events.  If two racers have the same highest single race score, we will move to the next highest single race point score to determine a tie breaker.

At the end of the season, MMRA will crown a single national road racing champion.  The champion receives a custom gold ring with his/her name built in – creating a one-of-a kind reward for a season of hard work.
