Bikes in the Valley: 2018 Points System Changes

Bikes in the Valley

New For 2018 Points, Two Drops and Qualifying Points

With adding the Atco Race, sponsored by Worldwide Bearings, to the Orient Express “Bikes in the Valley” 2018 Season, and a total of 8 races this season, we want to give everyone a chance at the championship.

We are going to change the points system from having one dropped race to now two dropped races. This will make it a little more affordable to give it a run at the championship. It’s still a slight advantage to go to all the races, but still doable missing two races. Rainout/cancelled races don’t count as a dropped race.

Another change is #1 Qualifiers will get 1 bonus point. Keep in mind the $25 to join the points, goes into the points fund, plus $5 from each entry fee all season. Also Orient Express, Vanson Leathers, M2 Shocks, and DME Racing all contribute to the points fund. Depending on how many racers join the points fund, based on past history, we have paid out the top five, with champions taking home about $1000.

Remember you have to be in it to win it. So let’s make this season the biggest yet, and join our points system.
