The drivers would be ranked based on three criteria:
1. Their weekly standing in their home track points.
2. The number of teams in competition at each race meets along with the number of drivers that actually started the event.
3. The number of actual feature events the driver competes in at his home track.
Each track would see their top five drivers in final weekly points earn
American Racer Tires as follows:
1st - 10 tires 2nd - 6 tires 3rd - 4 tires 4th - 2 tires and 5th - 1 tire
In addition to the year end tire awards, each track will also receive two American Racer tires per month which are to be given away in a random drawing of registered drivers in the American Racer Cup. Two tires are to be chanced off each of the months of April, May, June, July and August.
Along with the individual track awards, there will be a separate point fund to be paid out to the top 5 overall drivers based on the criteria that has been outlined. The payouts will be as follows:
1st - $10,000 2nd - $5,000 3rd - $3,500 4th - $2,500 5th - $2,000
It should be noted that drivers would be able to earn this revenue without ever having to compete away from their home tracks.
There would also be a lucrative bonus for drivers that choose to race in Race of Champions Dirt Tour events. If the American Racer Cup Champion is also able to capture the RoC overall title, he will receive a bonus in the amount of $20,000.… giving the drivers the opportunity, as Grand Champion, to win approximately $40,000 in cash and product.
Drivers wanting to participate in the American Racer Cup will be required to pay a $50 registration fee. A/R Cup decals will be provided for each registered driver and it will be required that the decals be carried in a prominent local on the members racecars.
