Ponderosa Speedway Announces Track Points Explanation

Junction City, KY-April 7, 2013- Ponderosa Speedway track promoter Larry Yantz and track co-promoters Chad and Sarah Yantz would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone for their support of the 2013 season opening event and to also explain how the track points are accumulated at Ponderosa Speedway.

The Ponderosa Speedway track points system sees drivers able to earn track points every time they are on the track from time trials to heat races to B-mains (if necessary) to the A-Main.  Just like on opening night, it is possible for a driver to finish second or third in the feature event and accumulate more track points that the feature winner because of points being awarded for time trials and heat races as well.

The track points scale for the 2013 racing season is the same as it was for the 2012 racing season.  A driver’s Points total for the night will be show up points, plus qualifying points, plus heat race points, plus B-Main points (if necessary), plus A-Main/Feature points.  That combination creates a drivers total track points for that night of competition.
