  5. Event Scoring
    1. All timed runs will be added together to achieve your cumulative time. Your highest time for the day will be subtracted from the cumulative time. Lowest total time is the winner per class and overall.

      1. Each pylon that is displaced will be assessed a 2 second penalty.
      2. Each missed gate will be assessed a 10 second penalty.

    3. BOGEY times
      1. DNFs are not given in RallyCross
      2. If you are off course and do not recover properly, you will receive a BOGEY time for that run.
      3. If you miss runs on the course in a given heat, you will be assigned BOGEY times for all missed runs.
      4. A BOGEY time is calculated as the slowest timed run of your group on that course plus 10 seconds.
    4. Re-runs
      1. Timing issues may result in a re-run or multiple re-runs to get correct times
      2. If you receive a re-run the previous run time will be eliminated

    3. The sound level of any vehicle may be measured at the start/finish portion of the track at a distance of approximately 50 feet or more using a consumer grade digital SPL meter at “A” Weighting, “Slow” Response.
    4. Drivers found in violation of the sound limit will be given one opportunity to reduce the sound output of their vehicle. If they are over the limit on the next run, they will not be allowed any more runs for the event.
