Wissota Point System
4 - POINT SYSTEM
Points will be awarded at all WISSOTA sanctioned events on the following basis:
4.1.1 General Points go to the driver. The driver will receive the best point finish between the heat race or the consolation race event before entering the feature (one event only).
4.1.2 Eligibility for Points If a race car pulls out onto the race track, under its own
power, with the intent to race, then the driver will receive the points for the finish in that race.
4.1.3 Show Points All drivers in each class participating in the race events at a track
will receive show points based upon the number of cars participating in that class, as follows:
126.96.36.199 1 to 9 cars participating, ten (10) show points.
188.8.131.52 10 to 15 cars participating, eleven (11) show points.
184.108.40.206 16 or more cars participating, twelve (12) show points.
Participating means that a car must take a green flag at some time during the racing program, including hot laps.
220.127.116.11 DNF (did not finish). Points awarded to DNF cars based on the order in which they were lined up at the start of the race (1st lap) or number of laps completed. Any car judged to be at fault for restart/accident will be scored behind any others who completed the same number of laps or were involved in the same incident.
4.1.4 Heat Races
4.1.5 Consolation Races
4.1.6 Feature Races

WISSOTA Rule Book (Page 19)
A driver’s top 30 top shows/races will be used to determine national points.
If a tie occurs in the final national point standings, it will be broken by the number of 57 point shows, 56 point shows and then 55 point shows. If the tie is not broken by that point, it shall remain a tie.
A driver’s top 20 shows will be used to determine any state champion awards that may be provided by WISSOTA. The state raced in, not lived in, will determine where points are given. The provinces of Canada will be grouped together and considered as one state. State points will be awarded only through the first Tuesday after Labor Day each year. After that date, only national points are awarded.
WISSOTA shall recognize a “Rookie of the Year” in each division each year. To be eligible for the Rookie of the Year award, the driver must clearly identify himself or herself as a rookie in his/her respective division by checking the appropriate box on the WISSOTA Competitors License Application. If this box is not checked on the original license application form, the driver will not be eligible for “rookie” status. To have rookie status in any class, a driver must not have competed in more than five (5) events in that class, or any higher class, at any track or under any sanction, in any previous year.
18.104.22.168 The order of classes, from highest to lowest, used to determine rookie status is as follows: Late Model, Modified, Super Stock, Midwest Modified, Street Stock, Mod Four. There are no lateral moves from class to class, only moves to higher or lower classes.
22.214.171.124 If the driver meets all of the above criteria, an asterisk (*) will appear next to his or her name in the national point standings published regulary in All The Dirt! as well as on the WISSOTA website, www.wissota.org.
126.96.36.199 If a WISSOTA official at any time determines that a driver who has applied for rookie status does not meet the criteria listed above, that driver’s eligibility for the Rookie of the Year award will be revoked.
