This year drivers will be allowed to compete in both the Lucas Oil Late Model Series and the Malvern Bank SLMR Series shows, but you must run two cars. Running the same car for both classes will not be permitted. We will use our normal Malvern Bank Series rules. Series rules are on our website (www.slmrseries.com) underneath the ‘Driver Info’ tab and ‘Rules’ page; Siping of front tires ONLY, NO Grooving (Rule 13-3). No siping or grooving on rear tires will be allowed. Race format we will be qualifying. Gear changes will be allowed after hot laps in the hot pit area while the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series’ C Feature cars hot lap. If you are not done with your changes before your qualifying attempt, no time will be recorded or allowed. Qualifying order will be determined by draw at pit meeting. Qualifying will be used to line up the heat races. Top 6 cars in each heat race will be inverted based on time trials. There will be 2 heats with 24 or less entries, 25 or more entries will result in 3 heats. Heat races will be 8 laps. There will be no passing points for the heat races, we will use the Knoxville Nationals style point system that rewards finish position. All cars will advance straight from the heat races into the $4,000 to-win, 22-lap main event. Total points will determine starting line-up for the feature. Ties in points will be broken by qualifying time. The high points earner will flip a coin to determine top four starting spots. Heads, heads up start. Tails, top 4 invert.
Point system are as follows: Time trials, 1st. 200, 2nd. 197, 3rd. 194, 4th. 191, etc. decreasing by 3.
Heat races, 1st. 150, 2nd. 144.7, 3rd. 139.4, 4th. 134.1, etc. decreasing by 5.3.
