2022 Rules and Scoring for Racers

In 2022 we will a total of ~9 races. The series will run from March to October. For the overall series championship you must complete a minimum of 5 races but your points from your best 6 races will count towards your total score.

Again with the current 9 races in the series, the top 6 races count towards your overall point total. There is a 5 race minimum to be considered a series champion.

Should an event be cancelled for any reason the Series Director may need to adjust the scoring system.

If we have additional races that will add to the series, the numbers may be adjusted as well. A notice will be posted on the NMORS website if this occurs.

Categories

The series standings will be calculated according to these categories. Note that individual races may combine categories for podium standings / logistics, but your results will still be reported according to these categories for the series.

Juniors

If Juniors share the same course and race start as the adult racers, they will be scored in their Junior group and category.

However, if a race offers a separate course or race start for Junior racers, a racer may elect to do the adult course instead of the Junior race – if so, the racer will not be scored in the Junior category for series standings for that event.

Proper race results reporting is necessary to make sure the results are correct. Please follow the outline of results reporting exactly.

Racer Responsibility

Racers are responsible to use the exact same name, DOB and USAC # in every race in the series to make sure there are no duplicates. Please remind racers about using the exact same name throughout the series, Webscorer uses the racer name as the primary data field. Racers who change categories midseason are not eligible to carry forward points earned in the initial category to the final category.

Tie-breaking Procedure

In case of a tie in points within the top three places in any category, the rst tie-break is who beat who the most in the series, this includes dropped races and DNF results and then if needed who beat who most recently.
