Tri Track Open Modified Series Announces 2020 Points Format Best Five of Six Races To Be Counted Towards Championship; Registrations Open For New Season
By Kyle Souza
SEEKONK, Mass. — Tri Track Open Modified Series officials announced on Wednesday the point standings structure that will be used for the 2020 season.
As part of six events, drivers will tally points in each feature. In 2020, the champion will be decided by taking the best five out of six point totals a driver receives. Drivers will no longer be required to attend all six events to score the championship, but with a drop race factored into the totals, the new format allows for a driver to have a miscue, while still being in contention for the title.
“This will give drivers a bit more of a buffer in case something goes wrong at one of the races,” Wayne Darling, one of two Managing Partners of the Tri Track Open Modified Series, said. “This is just one of many announcements we will have over the next few months. We’re looking forward to getting the season underway in May.”
