REGULAR SEASON SCORING METHODS

  1. The default points system used in NRS premier series oval events is as follows. NRS premier series oval events have a maximum of 43 cars in the field.  Each finishing spot in the field earns a driver point, from a maximum of 1 point for every available grid spot for a driver who finishes first in a race. With a maximum field size of 43, that driver would earn 43 points regardless of how many cars actually started on the grid. Each subsequent finishing position would receive one less point than the driver who finished directly ahead of them. These points accrue over a season and when combined with bonus and penalty points will be used to determine the driver standings, as well as the team standings.Unless otherwise specified regular season races will be scored as follows: Finishing position will be subtracted from 44.
    43 - 1st *(44 - 1 = 43)
    42 - 2nd *(44 - 2 = 42)
