Here is the basic event structure for all three divisions for the LoneStar Armadillo Nationals:

-This is not a ‘split field’ qualifying format. Meaning, all cars race all three days. Your highest point total on Thursday OR Friday will be used to determine your Saturday night lineup. Except, the top 4 finishers in the Thu/Fri A-features will automatically lock in the front four rows of the Saturday night feature. The next six positions in the Saturday finale will be locked in by the top six drivers in points (from Thursday or Friday points). The balance of the cars in each division will go directly into two B-features (and possibly C-feature). A total of 10 cars total will advance from the B-features to the A-feature. Nightly heat races will be draw for position with finishing position and passing points being awarded. There is no penalty whatsoever for racing both Thursday and Friday night. We encourage drivers to race all three nights.

-Electronic timing and scoring will be used for all divisions. A one-time $25 transponder rental fee is due at sign in. This will ensure all teams being scored to the best that is possible, along with having live lineups and results quickly available for all of the teams and fans to keep tabs on their smart phones during the event. Professional Motor Sports Solutions of Charlotte, NC is providing timing and scoring throughout the weekend, as they have the past three years.
