Event Rules:

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.

Elimination ��� The Elimination Race begins with three laps with no eliminations, then we begin pulling the last rider across the finish line every lap until two riders remain. The remaining two riders see 2 laps on the board.

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.
