Points-Handicap System

SUPRS Championship Points-Handicap System and Formats

HANDICAPPING-

The Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series uses a points-handicap system of Time Trials, Heat Races, Pill Draw, Individual Pill Draw, and/or Dash Races to set the field for the Feature Race.

SUPRS uses a tally of points accumulated by each driver from the last three scheduled events for the driver’s handicap total.  This is the SANCTIONS last three scheduled events, NOT the last three events that a driver has run. We call this The Points Won Handicap System.

The Points Won Handicap System for Non-Wing Supermodifieds

For the Non-Wing Championship Season Handicapping, Heat Race line-ups are determined using the Points Won Handicap System whereby a driver accumulates points that determine his handicap. Time Trials are rarely used to determine a starting line up for any event during the Non-Wing season.

Simply speaking, the higher a driver finishes in a heat semi-feature, and/or feature, the higher his handicap will be and the further back he will start in a Heat Race.

Generally speaking, the driver must then race into a qualifying position, (usually top four or half of the Heat Race starting field), to get his Handicap back. SUPRS then re-handicaps the drivers for the Feature Race with the driver having the lowest Handicap starting on the pole and so on.

  • All drivers receive handicap for each race regardless of being a Silver or Gold Crest member.
  • If a driver fails to show for a race he is credited with full points.
  • If a driver starts a Heat, Semi-Feature, and/or Feature Race but does not finish the race, he will credited with points for the place he was running in PLUS 10 extra points if MORE than HALF of the scheduled distance is completed when he drops out of the race.
  • If a driver starts a Heat, Semi-Feature, and/or Feature Race but does not finish the race, he will credited with points for the place he was running in PLUS 20 extra points if LESS than HALF of the scheduled distance is completed when he drops out of the race.
  • Drivers that have less than four(4) prior events with SUPRS will start at the tail of each race regardless of handicap points. They will receive their handicap beginning with their fourth (4th) SUPRS race.

The Points Won Handicap System for Wing Supermodifieds

The Points Won Handicap System is used whereby a driver accumulates points that determine his handicap. Simply speaking, the higher a driver finishes in Time Trials, Heat and/or Feature, the more points he will receive and the higher his handicap will be.

On most nights the Elite 8 (top eight time trial positions), or Fast Four (top four time trial positions), will not have to run a Heat Race. They are locked into top eight or top four positions of feature and are then inverted by Pill Draw, Dash finish, Individual Pill Draw, or Points Won Handicap.

Rarely will you ever see a straight up start from time trials in the heats or the feature with SUPRS.

Most nights this will include the Time Trials, Heat Race and Feature. However, depending on the nature of the event, it could be only the Feature Race points, or mix of Time Trial, Heat,  and/or Feature Race points.

  • All drivers receive handicap for each race regardless of being in a Silver or Gold Crest member.
  • If a driver fails to show for a race he is credited with full points for each handicapped event of the night.
  • If a driver starts a Heat, and/or Feature Race but does not finish the race, he will credited with points for the place he was running in PLUS 10 extra points if MORE than HALF of the scheduled distance is completed when he drops out of the race.
  • If a driver starts a Heat, and/or Feature Race but does not finish the race, he will credited with points for the place he was running in PLUS 20 extra points if LESS than HALF of the scheduled distance is completed when he drops out of the race.
  • Drivers with less than four(4) events with SUPRS will start at the tail of each race regardless of handicap points. They will receive their handicap beginning with their fourth SUPRS race.

Handicap Sorting When there are Drivers with Ties

  • When there are ties in the amount of handicap points among drivers that have three (3) or fewer prior events with SUPRS, regardless of division, drivers will be lined up for heat races in the order that they joined SUPRS with Gold Crest drivers taking precedent over Silver Crest drivers.
  • PLEASE NOTE: When there are ties in amount of Handicap points the following shall determine starting order:
    • Former Gold Crest Champions with points in most recent season championship, then sorted by points total
    • Former Gold Crest Champions without points in most recent season championship, then sorted by most recent champion.
    • Former Silver Crest Champions/Rookie of the Year(RoY) with points in most recent season, then sorted by points total.
    • Former Silver Crest Champions/Rookie of the Year(RoY) without points in most recent championship season then sorted by most recent champion.
    • Drivers with points in the most recent championship season, then sorted by points total.
    • Drivers without points in the most recent championship season, then sorted by amount of total races statistics.

Important Notes:

  • Silver Crest members with a season handicap will ALWAYS start behind Gold Crest members with a season handicap unless otherwise stated for all race events.
  • For regular shows during Gold Crest Wing Championship season, Heat Race, and/or Time Trial and Feature Race points will be used to decide handicaps.
  • For regular shows during Gold Crest Non-Wing Championship season, Heat Race and Feature Race points will be used to decide handicaps.
  • For events during the Gold Crest Wing Championship season when there is more than one feature or what would be considered a Double Header, generally speaking, Feature Race points only will be used to decide handicaps.
  • For events during the Gold Crest Non-Wing Championship season when there is more than one feature or what would be considered a Double Header, generally speaking Feature Race points only will be used to decide handicaps.
  • For events during the Gold Crest Non-Wing Championship season when time trials are in effect, Feature Race points only will be used to decide handicaps.
  • Bonus points shall never be used to determine Gold Crest Wing Championship or Gold Crest Non-Wing Championship handicaps.
  • The Fast Car Dash, Pursuits, or Crack the Whip type races are never used to determine Championship handicaps.

This may vary per event. Check the season schedule to be sure of what the points schedule is.

 GOLD CREST CHAMPIONSHIP POINTS-

Gold Crest members have the advantage of being able to run for the SUPRS Gold Crest Championship. Gold Crest members are paid points based upon their finish among other Gold Crest members.

Generally speaking, when all entered drivers have to run a Heat Race because of format, only Heat Race points will be tallied and Time Trial points will not.

When the format for the event calls for the Elite 8 or Fast 4 to be locked in, with the rest of the field being sent to heats, Time Trial points will be awarded to the Elite 8 or Fast 4 qualifiers, and Heat Race points will be awarded to the rest of the drivers.

  • We never award Championship Points for Fast Car Dash, Pursuits, or Crack the Whip type races.
  • On nights where the SUPRSCharger is in effect, the driver who advances the most positions from his starting spot at the beginning of the feature will receive TEN bonus points added to his Championship Points total for the night.
  • If more than one driver is eligible for SUPRSCharger because of amount of positions advanced, the driver that starts the furthest back in the starting line up shall be awarded the SUPRSCharger.
  • On nights where the SUPRSChallenge is in effect, any driver that starts or chooses to start at the tail of the feature line up and then advances to first place will be awarded 20 bonus points added to his Championship Points total for the night.
  • On nights where the Double Down is in effect, any driver that wins both features of the night has his Feature Finish points double for the SECOND feature of the night, (160pts).
  • A driver may earn points for setting Fast Time in Time Trials OR a New Track Record(NTR). He may not earn points for both bonuses in same race.
  • If a driver STARTS a Heat Race, Semi-Feature and/or Feature Race but fails to finish, he will be credited with a DNF and awarded last place points for the amount of cars in that race, and/or where the gaming engine places him in the standings if multiple drivers DNF.
  • If a driver fails to START a Heat Race, Semi-Feature, and/or Feature  Race, he will be credited with a DNS and will receive  ZERO Championship Points.

Notes on Double Points, Swings, and Bounties-

The Mid-Season Championship Double Points show will pay Double Championship Points on EACH FEATURE finish ONLY.

During Keystone Nationals, Florida Speedweeks, Indyana Supermodified Challenge, Mid-Season Championship and other multi-feature events the driver that has accumulated the most points for all the FEATURE races combined will be deemed the ‘Swing Champion’ and will receive bonus Championship points added to his total accumulated points for the night of the last race of the “swing.” Bonus points for laps lead, fastest lap, etc will not figure into this total, and the amount of bonus points may vary by swing.

Bounties-

When a driver wins five(5), races in a row he will have a ‘Bounty’ placed on his head. The first driver to win a race other than the ‘wanted’ driver shall collect the ‘Bounty’ by ‘taking’ ten(10) points from the ‘wanted’ driver’s Championship Points total. If the ‘wanted’ driver continues to win, he will have five(5) bonus points added to his Championship Points total for each win, while five(5) points will be added to the Bounty pool up to a total of twenty-five(25) points.
