Points Standings - Point System Explanation

1. Championship points will be awarded at all ARCA sanctioned races (except as noted on the entry blank or in the ARCA Rule Book)

2. To receive championship points, a driver must roll off the starting grid and take the initial green flag (EIRI). Any driver racing a vehicle in a race may have a relief driver, but the original driver must take the green flag. Relief driver receives no points.

3. The point system will officially end upon the distribution of awards at year-end banquet unless otherwise specified on entry blank.

4. ARCA assumes no responsibility for an error in scoring points when the assigned number is not used. 

5. Points shall be awarded according to the points schedule.

7. Bonus points: a) At each race event, each owner and driver not receiving finish position race points will be awarded 25 points upon entering and competing; b) 5 Owner and Driver points for the fastest qualifier; c) 5 bonus points for the Owner and Driver for officially leading a lap; d) 5 bonus Owner and Driver points for leading the most laps; e) 25 points will be awarded to each Owner and Driver that has met eligibility requirements and signed in at rained-out events; f) 250 bonus points will be awarded to each Owner and Driver per established eligibility requirements who compete in each five-race segment (Races 1-5 as run, 6-10 as run, 11-15 as run, 16-20 as run, etc.). In the event of postponement and rescheduling of a race, the event may be moved to an alternative race segment at discretion of ARCA. All registered Owners and Drivers will be notified by bulletin.
