All remaining event non-qualifiers or "no-shows" in eliminations will automatically receive 10 points. A minimum of 10 points will be awarded to all contestants upon completion of event tech inspection and registration. Points will not be awarded for qualifying positions in the NE1, NE2, NE3, A/G, B/G. C/G, D/G, and Hot Rod classes at any NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Racing Series events.

POINTS GENERAL INFO

All points are awarded to the driver and cannot be transferred under any circumstances. Points are not transferable from one category to another.  If an event is postponed for any reason prior to the start of eliminations for that category, it is necessary that any car and driver still eligible for event competition be in attendance at the rescheduled date to be eligible for all points and cash awards based on eliminator racing. Points and awards are based on a round-loss basis, not simply on qualifying.  If an event is disrupted and rescheduled due to weather or other conditions after eliminations of that category are in progress, contestants unable to return will be awarded points up to the round completed before postponement.  Non-qualifiers in N/TF, N/FC, A/F, AA/GS, J/F and 7.0 Pro will receive 10 points regardless of whether an event is postponed and rescheduled. Withdrawal policy does not apply.  Points may be withheld from any contestant who fails to display the appropriate series decal. Any contestant disqualified for mechanical non-compliance loses all points for that event.
