Competitors at the USRA National Championships will take part in heat races and main events each night. USRA Modifieds, USRA Stock Cars and USRA B-Mods will compete all three nights while USRA Hobby Stocks are on the card for Friday and Saturday.

USRA Modifieds, Stock Cars and B-Mods feature a $500-to-win main event on Thursday and Friday with a $4,000 top prize on Saturday in all three classes. Hobby Stocks join the program Friday with a $300-to-win feature and $1,000 to win Saturday.

Drivers will duke it out on Thursday and Friday, with the combined points earned for both nights (Friday only for USRA Hobby Stocks) setting the line-ups for Saturday.

USRA national points will be awarded each night. No USRA track points are awarded at any track during the three-day event, and national points are awarded at this event only.

Sweetening the pot for competitors at the USRA National Championships is the “True Car Count Bonus” awarded to driver in each class all three nights. Whereas a driver is awarded bonus points equal to the car count on any given night at USRA-sanctioned races, the maximum is set at 24 points for car counts of 24 or more.

However, at this year’s USRA National Championships each driver will earn a car count bonus equal to the actual car count with no ceiling. Therefore, if 60 USRA Stock Cars are racing one night then each driver in that class will get 60 bonus points toward their nightly total. This could have a huge impact on USRA national points in all four divisions.

Saturday’s championship features will start three-wide in all four divisions.
