how are imca national points figured, is it based on car count, as well as finish??

i undersstand its your top 20 finishes, are they at one track or any imca track you go to??

example, in nascar points if you dont have 25 cars you get less points for the national standings, than someone who raced against 25 cars.

thanks in advance i know ill get the answers here for sure!!

Your points are based on feature finishes. If you happen to run a track where there are less than 10 cars, the points available are 1 less than normal for each car less than 10. Ex: 10 cars or more- win = 40 pts. 8 cars--- win = 38 pts, and so on. When you get to figuring points for the national title, there is a maximum point total. Usually there are several drivers that acquire the maximum points, therefore, the tie is broken by the most "40 point" feature wins. The non-40-point wins do not count as wins for the tie-breaker. If there is a tie, then it goes to 2nd place finishes. Your points accrue at each track for track points and they are then added together to make your national points. In modifieds and stock cars, your points only count in your home region. I live and race mostly in Iowa, so this is my home region, naturally. When I go down and race in Alabama in January, those points will count toward my Gulf Coast region standings and will not transfer back to my North Central region standings.

Hope this helps.

Its actually your best finishes after you get to 1200 points. 1200 is the maximum amount of points you can receive. As I said before, your win total is the tie breaker. There are many drivers who have gotten to 1200 points without 30 wins. Its more complicated than just your top 30 for most of us out here.

You cannot get 1200 pts. with less than thirty wins if they give 40 points for a win.

OK, guys, I now have a clue. Rule book in hand! I was wrong. Regional and national standings ARE based on your top 30 finishes. Only one region, your highest total, counts toward your nat'l standings.

As far as what it pays to win the region, don't hold your breath. It pays $1000 to win the region and $10,000 to win the nation.
