Event Rules:

Points Race - A predetermined number of sprints occur at set intervals. For example, a 6x5 points race will have 6 sprints every 5 laps. A bell rings with one lap to go before each sprint. Points are awarded to the top 4 riders across the line for each sprint (5,3,2,1), the last sprint has double points (10,6,4,2). Riders are awarded 20 points if they lap the field or have 20 points subtracted if they lose a lap to the main field. The rider with the most points at the end of the race wins. Ties are broken by the finish sprint.

Snowball - A Snowball is a mass start race run over a set distance. The first rider across the line at the end of the first lap earns one point. The first rider across the line at the end of the second lap earns 2 points, etc., with the number of points for the first rider across the line for each lap ���snowballing��� until the end of the race. The rider with the most points at the end of the race wins. Ties are broken by the finish sprint.

Scratch Race - The basic track race. All riders race for a set number of laps. A bell rings with one lap to go. The first rider across the line wins.
