“The Dash” Speed Unlimited ET Series Championships Playoff format is exciting and well received. It will remain the championship format at MIR for many years to come. To qualify for the playoffs, a racer must finish in the top 10 in points in their respective class. Each of the top 10 qualifiers will then go into a 4-race Playoff for their class championship.
“The Dash” will be run very similar to NHRA’s Countdown with points earned through the regular season of April to September to try to qualify for a Top 10 finish and a spot in “The Dash” Speed Unlimited Championship Playoffs. To qualify for “The Dash Playoffs”, all a racer needs to do is finish in the top 10 in points in Top, Mod, Jr. Dragster or Motorcycle. Top and Mod racers have TWO opportunities to qualify in the Top 10 because the 1/4 mile races and the 1/8 mile races are two separate points programs.
Once all of the Top 10’s have been set at the end of September, “The DASH” Speed Unlimited ET Series Championship Playoffs will then take place. Points will reset according to your finish (see below) and the 4 remaining 1/8 mile ET races in September and October will be The Dash Playoffs.
Again this year, enrollment into the points program for all racers is absolutely FREE! On your first race of the year, simply register your number in the tower before going to tech. You will receive a number registration card and you are set in the points.
When you take into consideration that many tracks are simply cutting back and/or eliminating their ET programs altogether, we take pride in our effort and commitment to continue improving and expanding what is already considered one of the best ET programs in the country!
