Series Rules

We will total the 4 highest point scores out of the 6 Series Races for each participant to determine Overall Series Standings.

Top Three Overall Series Award will be handed out for each class .  The 2014 Awards will be handed out at the at Tour De NIMBA celebration (Potato Creek)

In the case of a tie in points within the top three places in any category, the first tie breaker is who beat who the most (this includes DNS or DNF by one of the racers in a tie), and, then if needed, who beat who most recently (this includes DNS or DNF by one of the racers in a tie).

All points stay in the class in which they are earned. It is required that you start at least 3 races out of 6 in your Class/Category to be eligible for an Overall Series Award.
