Only the best 4 races will count towards each drivers cumulative points. The racers will be competing for a guaranteed event payout in addition to bragging rights and a year end championship purse courtesy of the series sponsors.

We are truly happy to announce that Xenocron Tuning Solutions has come on board as a sponsor for the 11.50 index points series chase.
