There is no Series Package being offered for 2021 due to uncertainty with Covid-19
Each race is run independently. In addition, you can also compete in the Dirt Days Trail Series competitions.
The rules for 2021:
All participants will be automatically entered into the Dirt Days Competition.
However, due to uncertainty, we cannot announce official rules. We think that we must have at least 5 events in order to have a series competition.
Dirtiest Dozen Competition (typical prior to the pandemic): Complete at least four events and you will be eligible for the Dirtiest Dozen competition.
The top twelve male and females based on points will receive a special gift at the end of the series.
Points are based on your place within your gender for each race.
First place in each gender earns 250 points, 2nd earns 249, 3rd earns 248 etc.
We will take your BEST FOUR finishes. Therefore, the maximum points that can be earned is 1000.
Participation Awards: To be determined
You do not have to sign up for these competitions. We will calculate your points automatically and update the standings after each event.
