Happenings

Format

The 360 Nationals encompasses a three-day format. With points meaning everything, and every wheel turned on the track meaning points, there is no time for a break.

Thursday and Friday

Order of Events: Hot laps, Qualifications, Last Chance Heats (if needed), 5 Heats, C feature, B feature, A feature.

Qualifications - 200 points are awarded for quick timer, 198 for second quick, 196 for third, etc.

Only the top 50 qualifiers make the heats, the rest are put in the last chance heats in which the first eight finishers will fill the back of that night's C feature (starting in the sixth row).

Last Chance Heats (for drivers out of the top 50 in Qual.) – 50 points awarded to the winner, 47 for 2nd, etc.

Heats - 100 points are awarded for the heat winner, points go down by three: 97, 94, 91, 88, etc.

Heats have an invert of six. Top four finishers go to A, next four to B, last two to C.

C feature – Top four finishers go to back of the B. Fifth place is worth 92 pts., 6th is 90, etc.

B feature – The top four finishers transfer to the tail of the A. The B awards 142 points for fifth, 140 for sixth and so on by twos.

A feature - The A feature points are the same as time trials: 200, 198, 196 etc. This explains how a driver can not make the A, but if he timed well may have more points than someone who did make the A.

First tie breaker is finish position in respective main event. Next tie breaker is rank in time trial. Other tie breaking criteria may be implemented if needed.

A perfect score (quick time, heat win, feature win) is 500. Cars line up for Saturday's championship straight up by points earned on their qualifying night.

Saturday:
Saturday Events: E feature, D feature, C feature, B feature, Knoxville Nationals Championship feature.

With the exception of the B feature which takes the top four finishers to the tail of the 360 Nationals Championship, all other features transfer the top two finishers to the tail of the next event (if there are scratches, there may be more taken for a particular event).
