Mountain Speedway’s Handicapping Rules
 
Mountain Speedway follows a three week rolling handicapping procedure. Handicapping points are based on the previous three weeks of racing and win points that are assigned to a driver for each win they accumulate for the entire year. Your total handicapping points for the past three weeks and win points that you have accumulated for the entire year will determine the starting line-up for both heat and feature for the current event.

 
When a driver arrives at the racetrack, he/she or their crew is responsible for reporting to the speedway office to register their car. Any driver that does not register their car 15 minutes before the drivers meeting will be added to rear of the heat race. No exceptions.
 
Handicapping points are based on the speedway’s championship points broken down as follows:

All accumulated points are then added together for that weeks handicapping and championship points. A driver who does not show up for a particular event will be handicapped the maximum amount of handicapping points (110 points) and zero championship points for that event. Handicapping points will not be double points on a double points night. Double points are only for championship points.
 
All handicapping sheets will be posted on the website at the beginning of the week and will also be posted at the track. If you have any questions regarding your starting position please feel free to address them at the pit office.
 
Please note- The winner of the previous feature race to start in the back of the feature of the cars that qualify if they qualify. So if 15 cars qualify for the feature event and the winner of last week qualifies, then they start in the back of the qualifying cars so they will start 15th.
