All points will follow AMA point system. Example 1st = 25 points, 2nd = 22 points, 3rd = 20 points, etc. If a rider does not qualify, he does not get any points. Heats and qualifiers do not award points.
If you have a bad week, or miss a round, don't worry, we drop the worst round for each team. For SX, you will pick a total of 17 rounds, with the highest 16 rounds being added for your overall points for the season. For MX, you will pick a total of 12 rounds, with the highest 11 rounds being added for your overall points for the season.
During the Supercross Season, points are awarded for the rider's overall finish. During the Motocross Season, points are awarded per moto, not their overall finish. This is the same way the AMA awards points to the riders.
Each Team Owner must hire 4) 450 Riders and 4) 250 Riders for an event. Riders listed in gray are "Underdog" riders. An "Underdog" rider is worth double points for an event, IF THEY FINISH INSIDE THE TOP 10 AFTER THE HANDICAPS ARE CALCULATED.
Here are some examples:
- If we have Justin Hill listed as an "Underdog" with no handicap for Hangtown and he places 8th in the 1st Moto. AMA points for an 8th is 13 points, but since Justin was an "Underdog", he was now worth 26 points for you. Had he placed outside of the top 10, in say 15th, you would have received his normal total of 6 points. Hiring an "Underdog" rider can be big points if he finishes top 10 after his handicap.
- Lets say Cooper Web races Hangtown and is listed as an "Underdog" with an 8 handicap. He goes out, qualifies and gets 15th in the 1st Moto. AMA points for 15th is 6 points, but since Cooper had an 8 handicap, his place would be calculated as a 7th place finish which is 14 points. Since he was also an "Underdog", he was now worth 28 points for you. Had Cooper placed 20th, calculate the 8 handicap, and it is like he finished 12th. He would have received his normal total of 9 points for a 12th place finish.
- If for some reason, the "GOAT" decides to race Hangtown, we will give him an "Underdog" status. He will probably go out and win and earn 25 points, but since he was an "underdog" we will double his points to 50.
- The max points a non-underdog rider can get in an event or moto is 25. The max points an underdog rider can get in an event or moto is 50.
