Any driver/car using a Feature provisional will receive points for position finished in C-Main or LCS.

Full WoO Points will be awarded on both Preliminary Nights; WoO show-up points only for Final Night.

Ties are broken with 1) Higher average Feature Finish

                                      2) Higher average Qualifying Position

                                      3) Higher drawn position

NOTES: If there is a D-Main the first non-transfer car will receive 38 points, dropping by 3 points per position.  If there is no C-Main, 17th – last in B-main will continue to decrease by 3 points per position.  WoO Provisionals ARE permitted on preliminary nights (Thursday-Friday), but provisional starters will NOT accumulate Feature Event Points.  For example: “Racer X” finishes 5th in the C-main on Thursday, but is eligible for a World of Outlaws provisional.  Racer X will earn WoO Championship Points and purse money (minus the “start money”) for that Feature but still only earns 86 Event Points for the night. Provisional starters will be removed from the Feature finishing order for purposes of accumulating Event Points. Standard 2023 World of Outlaws provisional policy and procedures will apply for Saturday night’s finale.

The point system, lineups and formats are all subject to change due to car counts, inclement weather and/or any unforeseen circumstance.
