Hotlaps:
Drivers allowed one session per race day in 10-car groups according to draw. Drivers missing their assigned session won't be allowed to practice.

Time Trials:
Drivers draw for qualifying order, and fastest of back-to-back laps will be official time. (If driver misses assigned qualifying spot, he does not qualify and starts on the tail of a heat race).

Heat Races:
Lineups set straightup according to time trials. Fastest qualifier starts on pole of first heat, second fastest starts on pole of second heat, and so on. Four or six heats will be run, at discretion of series director. If four heats, top four finishers transfer to feature; if six heats, top three finishers transfer to feature. (For races televised nationally or paying $25,000 or more to win, promoter has option of inverting first two rows of heat races).

Consolation Races:
Lineups set straightup among drivers not transferring to feature through heats. If more than 16 cars are assigned to a consolation, there will be two consolation races. Top finishers (depending on number of consolations) transfer to feature.

Provisional Races:
Maximum of two provisional starters per feature race. Starting spots go to highest drivers in series points who didn't transfer to the feature through preliminary races. Provisional starters must be present for entire event, including starting in assigned consolation race. Drivers are limited to five provisional starts per season. Any driver added as a promoter's option won't earn series points. (For Hav-A-Tampa Shootout, provisional restrictions don't apply. The top two drivers in series points not making the feature through preliminary races will be added the 26-car field).

Feature Races:
Lineups set straightup according to heat and consolation finishes, with provisional starters on last row.
