How To Get Scored
We’re timing with RFID chips on your number plate; here’s what you need to know. Proper scoring is your responsibility (finish line, number plates, etc.)
You MUST do all of the following if you want to be scored.
- Register in the proper class – see the Class/Category list at registration.
- Your number plate attached to the FRONT of the bike – RIGHT SIDE UP – on TOP and on the OUTSIDE of all cables and brake lines. See examples below!
- Your number MUST be in plain view facing forward.
- DO NOT hang your hands over the number plate under the Start/Finish Arch.
- DO NOT go through the finish line if you are not finishing!
- After you cross the finish line STAY IN ORDER and exit the course at the marked exit.
- If you do not finish, start, or complete all your laps, DO NOT GO THROUGH THE FINISH LINE. You MUST sign the DNF Sheet at the Registration Table.
- KEEP FINISH AREA CLEAR. After crossing the Finish Line, exit the course at the marked exit.
- KEEP your number plate. It will be YOUR number plate for the entire season! If you lose your number plate you will need to purchase a new number plate ($5).
Correct way to mount your chip equipped number plate
Your number plate must be mounted on the front of your bike IN FRONT of all wires and cables with number facing forward and CLEARLY VISIBLE.
Nothing can be in front of your number plate or the chip will not read properly
You will NOT get scored if ANY CABLES ARE IN FRONT OF YOUR NUMBER PLATE
You will be going under the Start/Finish arch each lap. This will give you lap times. After your last lap you will exit the course at the marked exit.

Scoring and Points
- All scores are FINAL after the officials review the scores and race outcome is determined. Racer will receive points in their race class. (Note: there are sometimes changes in finishes determined by official review the day after the race…review time is allowed until 5pm the day after the race in most cases unless stated on awards night, etc). Any scoring changes reflected on the website are the official results.
- In the event of a tie, winner will be determined by: the most firsts, then seconds, then thirds, etc.
- If you change classes you will not be able to add your series points for both races, and will only be scored in each category raced.
- Racers who move up a class keep 1/2 points scored from lower class.
