Important Rider Information
America's premier Speedway Motorcycle racing venues are proud to announce the co-promotion of the National Championship Qualifier series. In a renewed spirit of cooperation, the 4 rounds of Qualifiers are intended to provide competitors with a path to earn a coveted place in the Monster Energy 45th United States National Speedway Championship to be held at Costa Mesa Speedway, October 5th, 2013.
Although the rounds share a common program format, points, purse structure and a vision for the sports future, each round is owned and produced by the individual track promoters that are not attached to any particular sanctioning organization. The goal is to unite the sport, attract Sponsorship, co-promote and produce excellent events for competitors and fans. Dates are as follows:
Saturday June 8 - Costa Mesa Speedway OC Fair & Expo Costa Mesa, CA.
Saturday July 6 - Big Time Speedway Prairie City OHV Rancho Cordova, CA.
Saturday August 3 - Industry Racing Industry Hills Expo Center Industry, CA.

The 2 top East Coast Speedway riders from that event will be seeded directly to the National Championship.

Each round will feature the top available 24, 28 or 32 riders from the list. Riders are encouraged to participate in all 4 rounds and doing so increases their chance to earn points and a place in the National Championship. The goal is to encourage participation and grow the sport at each track. However, riders are not obligated to attend every event and will not be fined or penalized for choosing to pass on a round. Riders who do sign up for a round and no-show will be penalized 10 series points.
The Qualifier format will be 3- 4 rounds of 4 man Heat races. Top scorers transfer to D, C, B and A Mains.
Series points are to be paid in the Mains as follows:

It's always embarrassing when a rider is inadvertently left off the program. In most cases it's just a oversight and your email saying "hey what am I chopped liver" will be enough to rectify the situation. Any and all qualified competitors who wishes to be added please let us know. Your inquiry or comment will receive immediate attention.
Riders please. An open forum is not the best way to take care of business. I encourage you to contact Brad Oxley at email@example.com or myself at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note. First time email contact often goes into a spam folder so please be sure to put 2013 National Championship Qualifiers in the subject line. Unless we have been kidnapped by aliens phone and email messages are answered within 24 hours.
Thanks Howie (March 28, 2013)
